Six Fun and Creative Ways to Engage With Your Audience

in dlive •  4 months ago


Hi Friends!

In this video - I chat about six different ways that you can switch things up and engage more creatively with your audience. These tips could apply to both video and blog content! I think throwing some fun and unexpected elements into your content can go a long way to keeping things fun and engaging.

Six Fun and Creative Ways to Engage with Your Audience

I go into way more detail on each of these topics in the video - but here is a quick bullet point version of what I will be covering.

1. Add easter eggs into your content.

2. Give a call to action at the end that encourages discussion.

3. Run a giveaway on your channel.

4. Tell more stories and give examples in your content.

5. A few creative ways to reward the first quality comment - and gamify the comment section.

6. Create your own tag for people to use.

Thank you DLive for Naming me a DLive Star!

I was absolutely humbled and honored to find out last week that I was named a @dlive star in their latest campaign. I thought long and hard about what topic I wanted to cover in my DLive star post - and here we are! I wanted to chat about something that could be fun and helpful to fellow creators and spend some extra time editing the video to make it even more special.

I love being part of the DLive community and I just want to say a huge thank you to the @dlive team and for all of the other amazing DLive content creators that make this place so special. The community has such a fun and supportive vibe and it really seems like people love celebrating each other's content and helping each other out. I also love that I can send a DM in discord to any of the DLive team members and I know that I'll get a quick and helpful response.

@wa7 - You obviously put a lot of intention and care into choosing your team members - and it shows. I want to give a special shout-out to @jimmylin who gave me a super warm welcome when I first started using DLive and has made a really positive impact on my overall DLive experience.

Thank You for Watching!

I really hope that you guys enjoyed this video! I can't wait to hear what you guys think of some of these ideas and I look forward to incorporating more of them into my content as well.

I'd also love to hear if you have any other thoughts or ideas for people who want to get a little bit more creative with how they interact and engage here on the platform. You never know what thought or idea will really "click" or resonate with someone - so please feel free to share below!

I am so grateful to be here and really appreciate each person who takes the time to watch my content and engage with my posts. Love you guys!

Loved your tips ! haha especially your easter egg tips! SMILE !😊 I am just new to DLive and posted my first two videos , ones with music from my security patrol on a construction site. I never even used my phone video before so its been a lot of fun learning Lol! I have always followed gringalicious and did get one upvote from her in comments! hahah! So glad to meet you and will follow you now here on DLive! I need all the help I can get hahha!😂😂😂💕✌👍


aww thanks for stopping by and watching my video @karenmckersie! All the way to the end too! ;) hehe

I just checked out your security detail videos and they are super interesting! Did it take you a long time to adjust to that schedule?

I'm glad that you got the gringalicious reference! I know she stopped doing that a while ago - so I wasn't sure who all would remember. It definitely left a lasting impression on you and I anyway! ;)

You are one of those great community builders and connectors on the platform and i'm so glad we have finally connected!! <3 Best of luck on your latest adventure to do more video content! If you ever have questions - feel free to hit me up! :)


Sounds awesome, thanks! and thanks for your kind reply back ,mI will be posting a new DLive video soon from my job site again but inside one of townhomes with the view from top floor. just waiting for some steem to promote it a bit! stay tuned lol! Its so nice to meet you!👍😀✌💕

Awe Lea, you are such a sweetheart, thank you for mentioning me and the crew #steemcreators, totally made me SMILE!! ; )
Your an inspiration as always, I would have never thought to do easter eggs, besides some random Rick & Morty Reference or 90's comedy movie I wouldn't even know where to begin. But now my juices are flowing.
Happy 4th


aww YOU make me smile!! Thanks for watching my video to the end!<3

I can hardly wait to see what you end up doing for easter eggs... I'm sure they will be awesome!

My fellow Americans. Wait, wrong speech. [shuffle cards] Hello I'm [name] and I'm an... oops, not that one either. [shuffle cards] For score and seven... [shuffle cards] Forget it. [throw cards on ground] Hello everyone, I'm here to talk to you about littering.


hahah your comment totally had me cracking up!

You know what makes me smile? When you use my post in your video as a personal Easter egg to me!!! I actually get to say I feel like you are talking to me without seeming like i have delusions of grandeur!! <3 ———-> Coruscate :):)


YES!! hahhah I'm so stoked that you noticed that! :D

I will definitely start using your idea of introducing some Easter Eggs on my posts, such a creative and original way of interacting with the audience. This 6 tips are incredibly fun and I had thinked about making my own giveaway, but I´m not sure If I have enough people that will be interested. Anyways I will try someday, not to far away from happening.

Congrats on becoming a DLive star, you really deserve. I say that because I found your videos not to long ago, and you are super cativating and friendly. :D


aww thank you @diogostantos!! I'm really glad you resonated with these tip and that they made you SMILE. hehe

So awesome to hear that you are going to start adding easter eggs into your content. It can really add a lot more energy and excitement to the post!

I think giveaways can be a really good way to gain exposure, even if you don't have a big audience. Maybe just keep the monetary prize value low at first until you grow the giveway. I tend to do random "one-off's", but you could certainly have the same contest that runs every month or whatever so it just keeps growing.

Best of luck and let me know if you have any questions about setting up a your first giveaway! I'd be happy to help. :)


I just hope that SMILE can be transmitted all over the community! :)

I´m still thinking what´s the best way to introduce an easter egg on a writing post, but I think I´ll be able to start very soon.

Initially I will be doing giveaways randomly ("one-off`s") so the participants are not always the same. I´m having problems deciding what prize I should giveaway, because I don´t have much at my disposal, but I don´t want the giveaway to attract only people that live to hunt them.

Thank you for that tips and keep up the great work!

Thanks for the tips and tricks for engaging with your audience. We've tried 2 and 3 (currently with the World Cup). If we were to add another one, it would be to be spontaneous and don't be predictable with your videos - try something new. As well as consistent too! We're all consumers of content, so the audience are expecting something from you daily or weekly or monthly. The being spontaneous and different in our videos is something we want to do, but it's hard at the moment. Yet, one day we'll get an idea and it will make us smile ;)

Thanks again @coruscate


aww thanks for watching my video to the end @travelling-two! :)

Awesome to hear that you already doing a couple things on the list! Love that you are going to try something new and unexpected. A little extra thought can go a long way to keeping things fun. :)

Boom. Indeed a bunch of good suggestions that i should start adopting. :) thanks fpr the reminder :)


Anytime @sergiomendes! I'm really glad that you resonated with some of these ideas. :)


Impossible not to. They are the ideal ones.

6 advises definitely applies to any content, regardless of which platform. Definitely liked the way you tested us if we made it to the end of the video.

I was just looking for inspiration on how to create content and came across your blog post. I agree that the six ways of creating engagement would be fun. The Easter egg thing is an interesting concept. Easter eggs make people smile. Especially chocolate eggs. Bring on the easter egg hunts.
