It’s something new. It’s something young. And it’s something revolutionary.
Facebook Live Video is shifting the communication paradigm to a whole new level and you or any marketer should definitely know about it.
OK. So you’ve decided to make a move towards video marketing via Facebook Live Video. But wait…
You’re thinking… “Is it really worth it? Should I be investing my resources in it? Will it make an impact on my audience?”
The answer is: Yes; it’s not only worth it but is definitely the shortest stairway to success.
If you’re thinking of hopping up to success overnight, the fastest way to do so is by adding Facebook Live Video to your social media marketing strategy RIGHT NOW!
Why? You ask.
Well, it’s really very simple, let’s take a look below.
From a vantage point, Facebook Live Video gives you the opportunity to connect with your audience directly.
You can do much more, like interact with your peers within your niche and industry and exchange opinions and ideas about how you can make your business better.
Nifty, isn’t it?
With opportunities as such, you can’t possibly miss hosting sessions with popular influencers and select targets as your business platform.
Bonus Point: Always try going the extra mile for your customers by catering to their needs, wants, and expectations. They’re, after all, the cherry to your pie!
Facebook Live Video can do a lot more than you can imagine.
For instance, your audience can multitask at the same time! (By multitasking, I mean they can comment and watch the video simultaneously).
Reading the juicy comments from the live stream feed will help you make constructive modifications with regards to your products or services.
Not only you, but people from participating audience can interact with others as well. This way, you can gather as much information from participant interaction and double your sales potential.
Now, you’d say that you need a proof.
How about this:
Market research has shown that after watching an explanatory product video, 74% views bought that product.
Yeah, I know, insane, right?
About 83% businesses report that videos provide good ROI, and that’s the very reason why you should be using Facebook Live Videos to stream your product videos.
It’s obvious that you need to deliver a good image of your brand and that’s why you want to use the best tech in town.
It’s also apparent that using modern equipment won’t be cheap, but it will pay off big time.
It’s really ok if your videos aren’t perfect; you can always use editing tools to improve the video quality.
Just remember, it isn’t the video, it’s the content that matters!
When you’re in front of the camera and going live, you might get a bit nervous and act a bit camera-shy.
Don’t worry though.
As strange as it sounds, your openness and expressive attitude will become your ultimate weapon to slay the competition.
The fact is, your audience clearly notices the verbal and non-verbal cues during the live session.
At that point, you can build contextual bonds with your audience using emotions.
Some things are just best when expressed on camera…going live… on Facebook Live Video.
Now, that you’re going live and conducting product explanation video sessions, you’re still missing out on something.
It’s the customer service relations. You need to respond to the customers reaching out to you.
How? With the ball in your court, you can provide solutions to product-related customer concerns and issues.
You can also conduct a customer satisfaction survey to follow up on how satisfied your customers are with the product.
You know what this means to the customers?
They probably witness your proactive customer services and feel that you’re listening to them.
When you’re going live and answering the audience’s Q&As, you can save your time and efforts by answering the same questions for other people.
When they come across your responses, repetition can be easily avoided.
Plus, you and your crew get the incentive to free some time and get started on any other business aspect.
As we go, I can’t see a reason why you shouldn’t be using Facebook Live Videos for marketing your products and services on social media.
Broadcasting real-time allows you to deliver a personal experience to your audience and make them feel connected.
You’re on the camera, they can see you.
They are willing to learn more about you and your products and services and that’s where it’s all going to start.
You won’t just be attracting potential customers; you’ll also be captivating the market attached to your real-time broadcasting.
So, get ready in 1…2…3…
Lights… Camera… Action! Start broadcasting.
