When I started Good Morning Gwinnett is was a way for me to be a contributor to my community. I love what I do so much that I want to put most of my focus on the show and making it better. Towards the end of 2020 I decided that I wanted to grow the show into a brand. I knew the next step in that evolution was to incorporate video. Now I'm not a stranger to video, but I must admit that I have become spoiled not having to worry about if my hair is done or bother putting on makeup.
I realized that if I wanted to scale the way I envisioned I was going to have to start live-streaming. So, Monday I went live for the show for the first time. I gotta tell you that I was a little bit afraid and don't ask me why, because I don't really know. When I woke up I thought to myself, that I will wait and not go live today and just start tomorrow, but something in my head said, "No" you're going to start today and I said okay and I went live.
After the episode was over, I felt so proud of myself. I had worked all weekend setting up my video player to run video ads during the song break and making sure that I and the music could be heard on each device. Everything worked fine, but I still almost did not go live on Monday. After doing so I felt so empowered.
I'm looking forward to scaling the business now. I've a video player that plays ads during the songs. The show is live streamed on Facebook and Roku. I will be adding more live stream platforms starting next week one of which is YouTube. This is an exciting time for me and Good Morning Gwinnett. I also got an offer from The Hype Magazine to produce my Thursday person where I will be interviewing locals in their studios which is super high tech taking the show to another whole level. So things are moving in the direction of my desire and I am looking forward to see what will unfold next.
Thanks for stopping by.
