Call-to-Action

While you’re live, you can pin a comment for everyone to see or turn comments off altogether. Pinned comments could be a great way to introduce the video and let everyone know what’s happening live. It’s also an excellent way to encourage interaction and responses from your audience.

Moreover, a Pinned comment will enable you to capture leads for future live videos. Here’s an example of a landing page:

What Makes Good Content?

  1. 5X energy (If you don’t have high energy, people won’t watch)
  2. Unpredictable storytelling (people don’t want to watch you walk from A → B, but they’ll watch you walk from A → ?). If they know what will happen, then they’ll stop watching.
  3. Surprise variables (a guest randomly appears)
  4. How-to, highly beneficial, inspirational, remarkable, funny

Specific to live streaming:

  1. Need to start the video with a bang! - High energy and excitement
  2. Need to throw in a surprise variable within first 30 seconds
  3. Need a great background that helps viewers concentrate on the presenters

Tips for what colors to wear:

  1. Avoid wearing white, black, red, and pinstripes.
  2. Pastel solid colors work best (blue).

Background

Bright colors like yellow, orange, or red will cause color reflections and can be unflattering to your subject.

Using your actual office as a background communicates authenticity. Seeing people in their natural environment feels genuine and adds a sense of time and place to the scene. A natural backdrop feels spontaneous rather than an artificial setup.

For live video, I would err on the side of being genuine since people go to Facebook to discover new genuine experiences.
