A show for Creators, Brands & Retailers to grow their videocommerce strategy

What if you could improve your sales conversion rate from 3% to 18% in just one hour? It’s completely possible, and you can do it today thanks to live commerce. This new, evolving online opportunity helps you grow fast, authentically, in an innovative and social way

Livestream e-commerce combines real-time video content and two-way communication that allows viewers to buy or save products as they watch. Compared to other pre-recorded, edited content, this interactive and engaging content feels more authentic. The spontaneity creates a feeling that anything can happen. But if you don’t feel confident in your on-camera skills, this can feel daunting and overwhelming. We’re here to help you feel more comfortable and learn the best practices for selling live.

It won’t be long until livestream shopping becomes imperative for e-commerce brands and online content creators. The US livestreaming market is expected to hit $25 billion by 2023. That’s why now is the time to build your skills, understand the medium, and ensure that your livestreams are successful.

Live video broadcasts give you a way to explain and demonstrate elements of products that customers don’t otherwise see before purchase. This also allows you to interact with an audience in real-time via chat and Q&As. And when you do it well, you can increase your following and drive product sales.

On this podcast, you will learn the key things about running a successful live shopping event. As people at the forefront of this evolving sales channel, we share the best practices and do’s and don’ts for brands and their ambassadors. Our cutting edge technology and training helps your personality shine on-camera, engage well with viewers, and improve the overall customer experience.

We make the entire process easy and fun through our live video commerce platform eStreamly. Influencers and brand spokespeople demo and sell products during livestream events. It’s like a Home Shopping Network online.

Together we can transform the shopping experience! Grow sales, save time, build trust with your customers and make delightful moments.

Crafting Stories at Scale – George Huff on AI, Content, Social Commerce and Retail Strategy

In this episode of the Live Ecommerce Podcast, I spoke with George Huff, CEO and founder of Opal, about the major challenges large brands face in coordinating content across channels and geographies.

George provided fascinating perspectives on how AI could augment human creativity and ideation in the future of marketing. But he cautioned that brands need to carefully consider the ethical implications of AI-generated content.

As an example, Target leverages Opal’s platform to produce an astonishing 300+ pieces of social media content every single day. Keeping content aligned across topics, campaigns, channels, and regions at that scale is incredibly difficult without streamlining workflows.
