In Welcome to the Tech Forum
Facebook Live is like a house party. Some people appear without notice, but most need to be invited. I don't want to host a "party" and I don't have any guests (ie viewers). Awkward! So you need to create a hype before you actually go live. It's a good idea to do this again a few days before the event, about a week before planning a livestream. Give your followers time to get excited and add to their schedule. I encourage you to announce on your personal profile and your business page the fact that you will be live, the topics you cover, and the date and time. You can also give your followers another opportunity to ask questions to deal with during the live. 3. Comment Gauge of interest using ladder ghost mannequin effect service One way to create a hype is to use a method called a "comment ladder". Post something here (in this case an announcement about the move to live) and ask for comments if you are interested in your followers. It may seem a bit annoying at first, but it's good for enhancing engagement and picking up posts with Facebook's algorithms. That way, more people will tend to look at your post and pay attention to it. Just post something like this: "Livestream on [day] [time] and talk about [topic]. Who wants to tune in? Comment less than" I'm in! ". " advertisement Continue reading below Then wait for others to comment on your post before adding it to the list. That way, you can always follow up before going live. 4. Send a reminder If the comment ladder is successful, you need a list of people who are interested in watching live. Approximately an hour before the livestream, we will send a private message to the people on the list to let them know that the livestream is about to begin. You can also tag your videos for immediate notification. This may seem overkill, but I guarantee that more people than blaspheming me said "thank you" to the reminders (in fact, no one did it). Hmm). If people are interested in what you have to say, they will appreciate the tweaks.
