DLive Contest and Suggestions!

Starting to earn money from live streaming has never been easier thanks to the Steem blockchain, @dlive at https://www.dlive.io/ and a generous delegation from Steemit Inc! For any of us that have already tried live streaming on YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, Beam/Mixer, Hitbox/Smashcast, and Facebook, we know that the hardest thing to do on a live stream is to first get viewers. Often it may take months or years of live streaming to even get a consistent group of five or ten people that watch. Meanwhile, to actually make any money is nearly impossible for 99% of us attempting to live stream. Even with an audience of millions online, I have struggled to earn anything live streaming even with hundreds of hours and as many as 700 viewers live at once.

With @dlive, we have a chance to change all that because the Steem blockchain helps bring new viewers into what usually is at most one live stream on @dlive. Meanwhile, @dlive just launched a new contest offering as much as $500 in an upvote for streaming live which when turned into USD is really about $1,000 at $4 SBD to $1 USD. Read more at https://steemit.com/dlive/@dlive/live-streaming-challenges-and-the-next-dlivestar. To summarize, go live tonight by 8:30 pm PST and the contest finishes at around 10:00 pm PST. While this is after my bedtime on the east coast in the USA, I will be streaming live cryptocurrency price charts, testing @dlive to see if it works for 12+ hours, and am seeking feedback on how to improve my stream. First, what I need help with followed by suggestions!

Help Me Improve?


Currently I am using Wirecast 8 to live stream to @dlive with screencaptures of

http://coincap.io

https://bitcointicker.co/price/

http://www.steemdollar.com/steem.php

While this is functional, I want to do much better. I want to use a software that will allow me to pull the data from websites every single second and allow me to customize the animations, choose which cryptocurrencies I show, and use multiple windows in Wirecast. What I do not know is which software to try? I am not sure if it is possible to use Microsoft PowerPoint or Keynote to do that. If you have an idea for what I can try to produce this result on my Mac Pro to use in the live stream, would you please make a suggestion in the comments because that will point me in the right direction? I already did some googling and so far have nothing to show for it.

Second, I want to make a show that is extremely valuable for viewers that has recommendations such as what cryptocurrency to buy that day and answers questions like should I sell Ripple or why is the market down today. What I am not sure how to do is easily incorporate that into the live stream. I have a discord channel setup I can use to allow partners at https://jerrybanfield.com/partners/ to talk on the stream and I want to do more than that. I could use a PowerPoint show and just make updates to it daily. A more interactive solution would be better. I already googled on this too and so far am not happy with the mostly chat bots I have found.

Suggestion for @dlive


The 2 million Steem power delegation from Steemit Inc via @misterdelegation can do a lot to help bring more live streamers to https://www.dlive.io/ and build the Steem blockchain. @dtube has a similar delegation and does an outstanding job with upvoting many different creators at all times of the day which has done a lot to motivate more uploads which in turn makes @dtube attractive for viewers.

Many of us would like to try live streaming on @dlive and we need to be able to do it when the time is best for us along with getting the highest upvotes possible. My best time to live stream is 10 am to 11 am EST. I have the ability to promote this to millions among all my social media accounts and with ads. If those of us using @dlive know we can count on votes from @dlive regardless of when we stream, we have a lot of motivation to go all in on @dlive which is ultimately what we need for @dlive to take off. If we think we have to stream at certain times, most of us are unlikely to give it a try.

When @dlive consistently votes up live streams, it will be very easy to get new streams with larger audiences onboard. A tip in their live stream for $5 will easily promote it.

Thank You for Watching!


I will take a look at the comments in the chat and hope this live stream on @dlive is successful!

Love,
Jerry Banfield

Sorry for your loss and congratulation!

You have been victim of a @GrumpyCat flag because you or someone else sent money to buy votes from a non-GrupyCompliant service.

@jerrybanfield

The good news is that GrumpyCat selects the best and most deserving posts to flag for greater impact. Congrats! Your post also earned a resteem by @GrumpyCat.

To know what voting bot to use, refer to https://steembottracker.com/ and use those that have 3.5 day or less in the "Max Age" column.

Thank you I was thinking about making this change and now 3.5 days is the maximum post age on my bot!

@jerrybanfield, please have a look at what happened to my post today thanks to @grumpycat. I completely understand the reasoning of wanting you to only upvote newer posts, but I lost $230 USD today because I was completely unaware of this --> https://steemit.com/steemit/@brandonfrye/steemit-upvote-bots-still-profitable-or-waste-of-money (also sent you a message on steemit.chat)

How did you get out of this and not even respond to me? Should I even use your bot any more? What the hell is going on here?

·
·
·

  ·  8 days ago

@brandonfrye I was unaware of this also until the downvote on my post because I go weeks without reading any posts on the trending page. I updated my bot so that it has a max age of 3.5 days now also which means going forward using my bot is fine. Most bots currently have an older post age still. Downvotes are a cost of doing business on Steem I am one of the most downvoted authors on here!

This is bs. They downvote me and I use the Bid Bots the same day I make the posts. But unlike @jerrybanfield I wont thanks them for abusing their Steem Power: https://steemit.com/steemit/@dineroconopcion/is-grumpycat-abusing-it-s-steempower I'm telling everyone about it, Steemit is supposed to be Decentralized.

I'm glad you can say "Thank you" since you're so wealthy. Meanwhile, those of us that used your bot or other bots and were hit after have nothing. We're flat broke and still no one sees our content.

Hey Jerry Banfield, you're one of the first Steemians that I came across and started looking into. Thank you for your in depth blogs and videos. I'll be definitely recommending your Steemit and Youtube to others. God bless and all the best to you and yours in 2018.

Everyone thinks different, what you may find a great writing style, I may find to be junk and vice versa. This place is kind of built backwards, they call it social media but want professional bloggers. A blog is a blog and social media is well social. I don't find the two to be the same, many do.

Interesting your information, and thanks to not give up, you got a better option to broadcast @Dlive, now we wait for an audience that can give information to improve the transmission process, greetings and thanks for teaching us.

Does dlive have irc integration for its chat? Some of the chat bots have really cool features for user interaction and games for users to play, maybe they can be customized in the future for guessing games on prices and contests for the users, things of that nature to up user participation in chat. Sorry, haven't used wirecast so I don't know what it's capable of, but it sounds like you need something that pulls the price feed and just shows it in a larger text on your screen?

And finally, if you're going to be talking about crypto it's advisable to put prominent warnings and disclaimers on the stream for your viewers in case it ever becomes an issue in your country.

BTC is falling today maybe because of news of South Korea possibly banning exchanges and seizing assets.

Thank you @laurabanfield for making a transfer to me for an upvote of 19.87% on this post! Half of your bid goes to @budgets which funds growth projects for Steem like our top 25 posts on Steem!

Although I experienced some technical difficulties at first, that won't stop me from going all out on this amazing platform. I will combine my passion for Streaming and Steemit and do it as best as I can.

Thanks you @JerryBanfield for shedding some more light on the subject. I appreciate it <3

Yo Jerry, whats up man? cptcrusty here from South Africa. So dude I was chatting with friend last night regarding steem and its future. Without a doubt people want to get paid for posting, whether its video's or blogs or whatever. End of the day Steem will have to cripple other social media's for it to actually become something of use to us because right now we are being paid on investors money that is coming in. Corporations need to buy in and once again paid for ads for us to actually be growing market-share.
What are your thoughts on this?
