Many people are too scared to get in front of the camera and live stream. They may be afraid of looking silly, or they may not feel confident enough with their skills on camera, but one thing is for certain – video is here to stay!

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how you can use Facebook Live Video as a way to promote your business and work towards overcoming the fears of being on camera.

One of the best parts about Facebook Live Video is how easy it is to use.

First, you create a live video and then share it on your business’s page or even your individual profile so that people can see what you’re doing as they tune in. You can also go live at any time by tapping “Live” while on your phone!

This feature has made streaming more accessible for everyone- not just those with professional equipment! You don’t need any fancy equipment or expensive software – Facebook Live is FREE! All you need is your phone and an internet connection. It’s easy, fun, and will make your business and life better in so many ways.

Here are some things to keep in mind when going live.

When filming yourself, make sure there isn’t anything distracting behind you that may cause people watching to focus their attention away from what you have to say.

It’s important that viewers hear every word- especially if this content will be shared digitally later on.

I wanna tell you about my ICA (Ideal Client Avatar)

Meet Kelly, she is the perfect human that I want to work with. Kelly and her family own the neighborhood convenience store that they built from the ground up, and it has thrived for over 30 years but lately business has been terrible. The pandemic just about put them out of business, but with a few major budget cuts and letting go of a couple of employees they saved the store; however they aren’t really making much of a profit in their business.

Now, Kelly knows they need to put their business online and create a buzz with live video, but she’s afraid of what could happen.  Kelly is nervous about the idea of putting her family’s store online, she knows that in order to save it they need to do something but it’s not like she, her husband and their kids are experts when it comes to social media or anything. They know what needs to be done, they just don’t know-how.

After a long talk with one of their employees who has experience with such things, Kelly realizes he’s right, and they can get this off the ground if they just put their minds together and learn what it’s going to take to get in the groove of doing Facebook live videos.

Kelly gives me a call, and we have a long talk about what steps she needs to take to save her and her family’s business. She starts going live on Facebook and shares what her store is doing along with any events they support and community news. She found her niche online, started her family’s live videos and things started picking up.

How would it feel if you found your live video groove and started generating more leads and attracting more clients?
