I don’t know where you were when Liberian music started pushing its way through all of the foreign music that were compulsively being played on all radio stations. But there came a time when only Liberian music made in Liberia was more popular to play, leaving out Liberian artists in the Diaspora.HottFm and its team fought a good fight trying to break in and blend the local and international artists. There were challenges: foreign artists felt like other radio stations were charging too much money to air their songs, while DJs at those radio stations defended their rates by saying when an artist is unknown to the public, that artist needs to be promoted.Promotion is different from radio play. It’s the DJ’s job to bring in ratings, to build up the artist’s fan base.So HottFm and team did just that, and started engaging Liberian artists in the Diaspora who had not only joined heads with some of Liberia’s greatest home based artists, but had come together to support artists and promote their songs. The station has been playing their songs and giving them the promotion they desperately need to break into the Liberian industry.Now, with the coming of Christmas, the season to be jolly, HottFm will be in a collaboration to deliver the biggest concert ever by bringing Liberian artists from around the world to Liberia on December 26.The news is the talk of the town and so far venues have been sold out for after parties and shows throughout the week the international artists will be here.Artist like Skylet White of the “Balance” hit, Young Muse, BE100’s favorite and “Danze” hit maker, and many more. But here’s the thing, the list of artists keeps growing, as more and more artists based out of Liberia are making reservations for their acts.“This will be so dope getting to meet our artists, whose music we always listen to, on stage here,” stated Rahim, a fan of Disturbing the Peace.If you’re an artist in the Diaspora, the Liberian Entertainment Awards and Liberian Music Awards are coming again, and artists need those votes. At the end of the day, majority rules; and that majority is home based. So come on home and earn those votes.Hottfm is encouraging Liberian artists in the Diaspora to contact HottFm and team for further information.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Burak Yilmaz 1 Guangzhou Evergrande are lining up a bumper offer to take Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea target Burak Yilmaz to China.All three Premier League clubs have held a long-term interest in the free-scoring Galatasaray star, who has hit 47 league goals in 74 appearances since arriving from Trabzonspor in 2011 – as well as 10 goals in 21 Champions League outings.But now, according to Turkish newspaper Fotospor, Evergrande have made him their priority target and could be willing to double his current salary to tempt him to the far east.Former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro is currently the manager of the Chinese side and it has been reported that he has earmarked Yilmaz as the man he wants to lead the line.That could encourage Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea to reignite their interest in time for the January transfer window despite the forward having four years left on his contract.
A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#Broadcasting#ecamm#facebook live#live video#streaming Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Social media has always made it possible for businesses to communicate with audiences. Live streaming has made that communication two-way. Businesses can talk to an audience, and that audience can use the comments to interact with the broadcaster. There are three top tools to broadcast to Facebook Live.A broadcaster on Facebook can ask questions, they can show their approval, and they can even chat with other viewers.A cosmetics seller could broadcast a live demonstration while viewers ask questions about specific skin types, and other viewers describe their own experiences. Selling in this way is a very different and very effective way of marketing.Platforms such as Facebook make the process simple enough, but several third-party providers have now added to those services. Facebook’s platform and made it even more compelling for companies that want to engage and sell. Leading the way is BeLive. This service integrates with Facebook to enable broadcasters to conduct split-screen interviews.So you could talk to another expert in your field, and your audience would see both of you on the screen, just like a news broadcast. You can even create a kind of talk show that puts as many as four people on the screen at the same time, with ten waiting on a type of lobby to join the conversation.Perhaps the best feature offered by BeLive is branding and communication. The platform lets broadcasters use their own logos, frames, and colors, and create chyrons. So as you’re answering a viewer’s question, an assistant could put that question on the screen or pick out the best comments flowing alongside the video. It’s all you need to make the broadcast effective.Ecamm is aimed at Mac users and has similar functions. You can add overlays to live broadcasts, share your Mac desktop (which is useful for software demos and tutorials), and switch between different camera views. That sounds useful, but it risks being disorienting for viewers, and it might even be too professional.One of the benefits of live video is that it brings viewers close to a brand. They can feel like they’re talking directly to a business or an expert in the same way they might Facetime a friend. Switching between camera views might give a broadcast the slickness of a shopping channel broadcast but at the expense of intimacy.The green screen feature that lets you change your background does have the potential for lots of fun, though. Finally, Crowdcast is a bit simpler. It puts a lot of emphasis on its fast onboarding. The platform has a straightforward setup, with no downloads.Facebook Live is very simple. It’s the extra features that you’re looking for from a third party. Where Crowdcast does offer some benefits is in its engagement features—the platform provides polls and interactive Q&As—and in its stats data.You can track performance with advanced analytics, and also connect with Zapier. So you could, for example, set up an automated response to someone who clicks a link placed in the comments. The platform is particularly popular with users of Patreon who use it to drum up support for their fundraising and answer questions from potential donors.Facebook Live is powerful by itself. But the social media site has left plenty of room for other businesses to add features and get even more benefits out of live broadcasting. Whether you’re focused on interviews and answering questions, want to turn your Mac into a television control room, or want to give a Patreon campaign a bit of a boost, Facebook Live and its third party support will help you meet your goals.
