Do your Homework
You need to do your part of checking the background of your guest and what the topic is about so you can ask the right question and make things more interesting for yourself, your guest, and the viewers.
Segment your Show
It can differ from person to person when it comes to how long a live stream will be. Make sure that you choose a length of time for your show that you are personally comfortable with. To help you out, make sure that you segment your show so that you can transition from one topic to the next without sounding long winding or boring. Segmenting your show keeps things interesting.
Be open to Restructuring
Your vision and what attracts your audience the most may differ a little bit so you need to be open to tweaking your shows to make it a bit more interesting to your audience. Feedback is always important so flexibility and being open to doing a few changes and restructuring helps ensure that you keep your show as interesting as possible.
How can I make the next show better?
Continue answering this question after every show. This is how you can continuously improve your show. It could be the sound effects, it could be your segment openers, graphics, background, costume, props, content, guest, or something as small as your opening spiel. Whatever it may be, just make sure that your show keeps moving forward.
Learn from the mistakes. Lessen the uhms and dead moments. Take note of what resonates with the audience. Take note of what may have sparked negativity and learn to stay away from it. Every single live stream is a learning opportunity to be better so take advantage of it.
