from Janice Wald’s Mostly Blogging Site:
Today, everyone is jumping on the popular trend to produce videos.
Facebook videos are called Facebook Live.
Twitter has Live Video powered by Periscope, a live streaming app.
YouTube has always been the king of the video market until Facebook and Twitter decided to compete for their share.
Facebook Live has proven to be a decent competitor. After becoming available to the public, just last year, according to recent statistics, interest in Facebook videos has risen over 330%.
Guest author Cathy Lawdanski is here to offer tips on how you, too, can take advantage of the surging interest in Facebook Live to produce your own live streaming videos.
By the end of this post, you will know how to get started and what to talk about in your live streaming videos.
Facebook Live Made Easy, by Cathy Lawdanski
We hear all the time that LIVE video is the way to go. And in this season of blogging and online marketing, it is.
Facebook Live: Your Reach
The page for my blog, My Side of 50, has 554 followers.
In the last couple of weeks, my blog posts have shown anywhere from 9 (yes that’s NINE) to 483 people. That 483 was rare. Most of the time Facebook shows my posts under 100.
In the last 3 months, when I post a Facebook LIVE video, it is shown to a minimum of 300 people with the largest reach being 553.
So since Facebook likes their live videos so much, they are eager to show it to more people and that means a larger reach for you!
But I find that many bloggers are afraid to get in front of the camera, don’t know what in the world they would have to say or both.
