The first time I tried to sit in front of a camera to do a quick two minute video it took well over an hour. It was a mess. I kept stumbling over my words, my mouth got dry, I was nervous and...uff...it just wasn't good.
So when Facebook announced Facebook Live I thought, "Oh isn't that nice....I won't be doing THAT anytime soon!" If I couldn't do a simple two minute video how could I do something LIVE??
I have a feeling many of you might relate to that statement. What if I screw up? What if no one shows up? What on earth do I talk about? What if I have a coughing fit?
There are a million "what if" hesitations that we toss out there. I know because I've been there and used every single one of them!
But here's the deal - Facebook Live is, hands down, one of the best ways that you can boost your engagement and visibility on Facebook. If your reach is struggling and you don't have a budget for Facebook ads, Facebook Live is the answer.
