Over the last year I have had the privilege to help thousands of entrepreneurs with their live stream strategy. And there is one trend that I notice that needs to stop.
Lovely humans with an introvert personality thinking that because they are SHY, they are not suitable for live streaming.
*Ah.. hell to the no*
Being a good live streamer has nothing to do with shy-ness, bubbly-ness or outgoing-ness (if those words existed).
In fact, I have 6 reasons why having an introvert personality makes you a better streamer.
So listen up, introverts!
1. Introverts are Great Listeners
If you have an Introvert Personality, you have the innate ability to listen more than you speak. You tend to think long before you create your next video. Therefore, your live videos are always carefully thought through and highly relevant to your audience.
Because you are great listeners, during the broadcast, you are also more likely to pay attention and acknowledge the comments. The live video audience is very needy when it comes to acknowledgement. You are more likely to give them that!
2. Introverts Understand that Live Streaming is Not About Them
Your introvert personality doesn’t like to be the centre of attention so you are more likely to make the live stream about the viewer, rather than about yourself. The viewers don’t really care about the broadcaster anyway. They care about themselves and how the message in the stream resonates with them. You, my lovely introvert, compliment that beautifully.
3. Introverts Think Deeply About Their Message
Darling, having an introvert personality makes you less likely to ramble on camera and more likely to share an articulate, well thought through message. You tend to be more concise because you are less likely to use words which do not add to a conversation.
If you have nothing to say, I know you won’t say anything. Extroverts like myself, on the other hand, are easily distracted and often add irrelevant points to a conversation just for the sake of continuing it.
4. Introverts are self-sufficient
You are not dependent on other people. You like to spend time with yourself. Your self worth does not depend on how many followers you have. Guess what, you are more likely to sick longer in the live streaming game because numbers don’t bother you.
Do you know how many people give up because others don’t pay attention to them? Not you, love. Not you. You aren’t bothered who watches you. Your consistency depends on you. Not on how many people show up.
5. Introverts are Very Focused
I am not sure if you know this, but live streaming requires enormous attention abilities. You need to give your full attention to the audience, and sweetheart, you are a powerhouse when it comes to giving your attention to somebody. You are less likely to get distracted and more likely to focus on the broadcast topic. That’s powerful.
6. Those with an Introvert Personality have a high EQ.
Live Streaming is a different kind of animal than produced video. It requires empathy. It requires the ability to pay attention to the room and react accordingly, immediately. You, sexy thang, are more likely to make the room feel like they are cared about. Your emotional intelligence is on another level.
So listen up, you beautiful human with an introvert personality. If you have been avoiding the camera because you’re an introvert please think again.
I am an extrovert.
I am telling you. YOU MAKE UNBELIEVABLE live streamers.
Let the World see your hidden talents.
And the truth is, both introverts and extroverts have amazing qualities and bring something different to the table. So no matter what personality you have, own it, share it, stream it! :)
