Best Practices For Your Facebook Live Event
Best Practices during your Facebook Live Event
When you are recording your Facebook Live events there are a number of things that you can do that will make your event more engaging for your audience. In this article we will share with you the best tips for making your Facebook Live event memorable.
Don’t forget to Smile
Nobody wants to see a miserable Facebook Live host who has a very serious face. If you do this then you will find that people will leave your event very fast. Practice smiling in front of the camera as much as you can so that when you record your event, smiling comes naturally to you. Your audience will always warm to your smiling face.
Speaking with a smile is something that you should practice as well. Nobody wants to listen to a host with a monotone voice or that has an unfriendly tone. This will bore your audience and they are going to leave faster than you can believe. When you speak with a smile people will love your personality and it will inspire them.
Interact with your Audience
You want to get as much engagement with your event as you can. This means getting as many comments, likes, shares and views to your event as possible. The reason for this is that Facebook will show your event high in the news feeds of Facebook users increasing your chances of being discovered.
The best way to achieve this is to ask your viewers to interact. For example, you can ask your audience questions and request that they answer by leaving a comment. Tell your audience that if they like your event you would very much appreciate if they would share it with the people that they know.
We recommend that you have a question and answer session where your audience can ask you questions in the comments and you can respond to them. There are other things that you can do such as run a poll where you ask your audience to rate something for example. Go for maximum interaction with all of your Facebook Live events.
Use your Mistakes Wisely
One thing is for certain, you are going to make mistakes when you record live events. After a while of recording live events you will probably make less mistakes, but they were still happen. When you make a mistake don’t be too tough on yourself. Your audience will probably laugh so laugh with them.
Your audience is not going to expect a perfect event. Some of your viewers will actually look forward to you making mistakes because it provides a welcome break. So instead of hating your mistakes embrace them instead. Always remember that when you make a mistake just get over it and keep on going.
Get Assistance with Questions
If you think that there is going to be a lot of questions with your event then it is a good idea to organize some help. Trying to run your event and answer a lot of questions at the same time will be a real challenge for you, and will probably not lead to the best possible event.
Having another person that can read the comments as they come in and reply to them will help you a lot. It will also be good for your audience as they will appreciate the fast response. You need to choose an assistant that has the knowledge to answer the questions properly.
