The Best Things To Make A Video of for Facebook Live
So You Can’t Think of What To Do For A Video?
Here are the Best Kinds of Content for Facebook Live
When creating content for Facebook Live – or any type of live video for that matter – you will quickly learn that some things work better than others. Some content is simply more engaging in a live format and works better that way and other types just aren’t suited to this type of video. When I say content, I mean anything like a video, images, written copy, downloadable guides and things like that.
Videos are great if you are trying to start out in your business and grow your personal brand. Your ideal audience will get to know, like and trust you faster.
Here’s what works well…
A ‘top ten’ list is an ideal format for a live video for a number of reasons. For one, it gives you a structure that you can keep coming back to while still letting you speak relatively freely. At the same time, it will provide enough structure that someone joining you halfway through will know what the video is about and be able to catch-up: especially if you use a whiteboard, or hold large index cards with the product name (so you remember what they are and talk about them) as a prop with your list.
This could be an interview with yourself, or with another person. Either way, you’ll have a great format for an engaging piece of content and you’ll be able to get more questions from your audience. Tell your audience you are going to to a live Interview and post their questions. This is a great way to take advantage of the live format.
If the interview is with you, then you can call it an ‘AMA’ – Ask Me Anything or ‘Q & A With ___’
By taking this well-known format and putting it in a live video setting, you can actually make it into something much more exciting and unique for your visitors. This will give your viewers the opportunity to actually interact with you and ask questions – significantly increasing the value of the seminar.
Reviews are a great way to sell a product and again, the live format will only add to this. That’s because a live review means you can answer questions and show off features you might otherwise have missed! Plus, this is the closest you can come to selling something to your audience face-to-face! If you don’t want to do it live, just video tape it and post it to you website as a blog and then let everyone know about it through social media with a link back to you blog post.
