Embrace Facebook Live and Reap Great Benefits! Ever since Facebook Live made its way to the social media world, the way people interact with their friends, family and business circle has evolved. Imagine the growing number of audiences who spend watching live streaming videos as opposed to traditional video posts. Which means, Facebook Live is only going to get bigger and bigger with time.
Here are a few tips for you!
1. Practice makes perfect. Cliché but extremely true. Like in everything else that you do, practice. Try practicing your Facebook Live topic in front of a mirror or record a video of you doing a mock Facebook Live video. You can do this for practice purposes via your Facebook personal page. Hit the "Live" button and make sure you select "Only Me" as the audience for your video and voila! You can try it out as many times as you'd like and see how you did it.
2. Some video recording tips you might want to consider:
a. Always record at an angle slightly above you or straight to your device's camera. Don't record any video when your camera is placed below - imagine how you'd look like! Yikes!
b. I suggest you keep a list of items you want to discuss either on a piece of paper or your computer that can directly be seen at your eye-level so it won't look like you're reading from a script. Try and look natural. If you can memorize a few lines then way better!
c. Always start with an introduction (not too long or you might end up losing your audience) and never forget to thank the people who joined you in your "Facebook Live" journey.
3. Confidence is key! Once you've practiced enough and know exactly what you'll say you're ready to do your first Facebook Live video. Best to always introduce your topic to your audience at least a week or so ahead so they know what's going on. Also pick a day and time of the week where you can see a more likely chance of people who are online ready to join you. And of course, always make sure your internet connection is at its strongest in the location where you plan to do it - you don't want to be cut-off in the middle of your speech!
DARCI TIP: A little tip I ALWAYS use is I pretend I am actually talking to someone. The camera is a person. It works for me!
