Social media in 2017 is already proving to be a fun year with new tools and options. Want to know where you should consider spending more time this year? Video. Going live on Facebook is something to start in 2017!
Facebook Live gets you in front of all your followers on the fly, and it’s a great way to get adjusted to being on camera. Not quite comfortable being the focus? Turn the camera away from you before you turn it on. Don’t forget to title your video as much as you can before you start, but don’t let that stop you from broadcasting if you’re in a time crunch. Sometimes life moves fast and we don’t have time to set it all up fully or we’ll miss the opportunity.
When you’re broadcasting, re-announce where you are and what you’re videoing every couple of minutes. This helps the latecomers know what’s going on. Studies show many viewers turn down the volume right away, so visual clues are going to help people stay watching longer.
When you are finished, click to save the video and post on your Facebook page. This lets people keep watching your content long after you’ve stopped filming.
