Going live on Facebook may seem daunting to you, but with these quick tips, you’ll be able to go live worry-free in no time!
Before you go live:
Plan for what’s to come. You’ll want to know the answers to these questions:
- When am I going to go live and how often?
- What am I going to cover and why is it important?
- How am I going to make the visitors feel like they’re there?
- How can viewers convert while watching the video?
After these questions are answered, make sure you charge up all of your necessary devices and that the place you’re going live has WiFi or you’ll need to have strong cellular service. (Going live takes up a LOT of data!)
It is important to note that you don’t need a different app in order to go live. Going Live can be done directly in the Facebook app! To go live, simply click into the status bar and a drop-down menu will appear from which you can select “Live Video”. After this, create a caption for your video–make sure this caption is informative and concise so your viewers will know where you are and what you’re doing! See below for a visual example:
