Thinking about launching fan subscriptions on your website? Hosting exclusive live streaming concerts and Q&A’s is a great way to build a community and bring your fan subscribers together on a regular basis.
In this video, you’ll learn step-by-step how to set up a subscriber-only live stream on your website. We’ll also show you some easy ways to let your subscribers know about the live stream event.
Set up your event on a subscriber-only page
Head to the Subscriptions tab from your control panel. From here, you’ll see your subscription content. You can add a new page to host your live streams, or edit an existing page by heading to the page options.
Create a live stream event
For this example, we’re going to use the live streaming platform, Crowdcast.
First, add an HTML code section to your subscriber-only page by clicking Add Feature, and then choosing the HTML code option from the list.
In Crowdcast, create your live stream event. You can schedule one for the future by following the prompts. Once it’s been created, click on Share to copy the embed code. Then head back to the HTML section you just added to your website page. Paste the embed code you copied from Crowdcast, and then hit Save.
When it’s time to go live, your fan subscribers can watch by heading to your live stream page and logging in to get access.
Note: You can also easily integrate your live stream using Twitch or Crowdcast in the Video feature. Click Add Feature, choose Video, then paste in the url to your Twitch or Crowdcast live stream.
Promote your show to your subscribers
Whether you’re playing a show for all of your subscribers or just one tier, you can use the built-in mailing list tool to send your fans information about the show.
Click on “Message Subscribers” to create a new email campaign, type out your message to your fans. Include the information about your live stream, like the date and time you’re playing, and the link to your website page where you’re hosting the stream.
You can also add your live stream shows to your calendar. Add a new event to the calendar, including details about the show, then add the live stream page URL in the “Location URL” section.
With these steps, you’ll be ready to start playing live stream shows exclusively for your fan subscribers. Best of luck with your shows!
