Facebook live in the #1 marketing tool in my toolbox. Facebook is pushing out live videos more than ANYTHING else in the newsfeed! That means if you'll learn how to go live, and get really good, you have the opportunity to put your business in front of the masses without feeling icky! You can do what you love and create beautiful art and people can tune in from anywhere on the globe to watch!  I've built relationships with people and grown a network of true friends!  I have put together a presentation so you can learn how to confidently go live without being terrified! 

 

Check out these stats!

  

Facebook Live Videos Are Watched 3x Longer Than Videos That Aren’t Live      

     

Users Comment On Facebook Live Videos At 10x The Rate Of Regular  Videos

     

Video posts have 135% greater organic reach than photo posts

 

Did you know: Going Live solidifies that you are in fact a real person, with real feelings, opinions, and personality traits, PEOPLE RELATE TO YOU.

 

HOW TO DO IT

 

Click ”POST UPDATE” at the top of your News Feed

Write something about your live video- **TIP** I always use #LIVE- Join Me!

Titles must have fewer than 255 characters or the stream will fail. Short and catchy is Key!

Add emoji/arrows, anything, to add some color to your title

Click Go Live

**Remember, flip your screen if you are on iPhone, you want to make sure the words are not backward!

 

 

BEST PRACTICES

Keep talking as if you have an audience- So what if you have 0 viewers, keep talking as if you do!

Have good lighting, use lamps, go live during the daytime, get a lighting kit, whatever you need to make sure people can see you well. (Links to all the products I use below!)

 

Clear the clutter! Find your best space to do your live, eliminate messy backgrounds. You can get a cheap backdrop from amazon hereàhttp://amzn.to/2jgi8Zu (affiliate)

 

Sunday nights are the BEST night for live, but switch it up. Try daytime, late evenings, avoid Saturday days, people are usually busy! Think about your audience, when are YOU online normally?

 

Remember, worst case scenario, you hit the END button!

A few tips on confidence….
 

Fake it till you make it.  Do your hair, fix your makeup, you’ll feel better and more confident, yes its important to be real but if you’re nervous, try to do something that will give you an extra boost of confidence for the first few lives, get a new shirt, manicure, whatever! Consider this an investment in YOU and your business!

 

Always have your camera angle from slightly above and tilted down, this is a very flattering angle and will help you feel more confident, and avoid the camera looking up your nostrils!

 

Lighting, lighting, lighting! ( Seriously, the ring light is like magic. It's my #1 cannot live without the tool!)

Remember…growth comes from moments when we are pushed outside our comfort zones! Nothing worth having comes easy!!!
