This past Saturday, CinchShare joined Million $ Party Girl Lynn Bardowski at her one of a kind conference, #VisionistaCon16: Social Selling Boot Camp for Direct Sellers, as both sponsors and speakers. It was an action packed day of learning for a room full of female entrepreneurs who went home with a ton of awesome information that will catapult their business! A few of the topics discussed were Facebook marketing, virtual parties, hostess coaching, FB Groups and Facebook Live.
Being that video is presently HUGE on Facebook and projected to be the best way to attain that sought after engagement in 2017, we wanted to share the valuable tips that Lynn taught about Facebook Live and why we think you should go for it!
Where and How to Set Up Your Facebook Live
The first thing you want to do is check your Wi-Fi signal to make sure it’s strong so that you don’t freeze or get dropped. Then, using the Facebook App on your mobile device, you can choose to go Live on your Timeline, your Business Page or in a Group or Event. Every location is great for building relationships with your followers, team, customers and party guests! Just click on the red movie camera to get started! Think of a catchy title and name your FBL. You’ll want to make sure you check the privacy and you can click on the magic wand to add a filter. Tap on FINISH to end the live stream and then you can save it to your camera roll if you’d like. There are also Share & Edit options.
According to Lynn, who is definitely a FBL expert – she goes Live several times a day! – it’s a great idea to practice first in a secret FB group so you can see how you look and make sure that you’re able to get set up smoothly. If possible, use a microphone and a tripod or some DIY contraption that will hold your phone so that your viewers don’t feel like they’re on a rollercoaster ride! Stand against a wall with good lighting in front of you. Adding music is fun but make sure it’s copyright-free or you can get into BIG trouble! Lynn’s favorite choice for finding great tunes is at YouTube.com/audiolibrary. Scheduling a prepost reminder that you’re going Facebook Live at a certain time is a fantastic idea. We do that for our Wazzup Wednesdays so our group members know what time to tune in and chat with us and it works like a charm! You can also tell your viewers to tap on Follow so they receive a notification the next time you go Live.
Here are a few more great tips to really captivate your audience with Facebook Live:
So now you have the tips and tools you need to get yourself out there and go Live on Facebook with confidence! No more excuses, just try it a few times and you’ll be a pro! We can’t wait to see your personality shine!
