Facebook Live is the new way to engage your fans. It’s simple, load the app on to your phone or tablet, log in and start filming. My first time using the app was just recently. We had a promotion and my partner in crime filmed the event for me. Here are the valuable lessons we learned.
Take the time to play around with the “ Live “ setting before hand. This will give you time to work out the kinks. Make sure you have a strong signal. We had to actually have the venue reset their wifi so we could pick up a signal. And lastly do some research. What time is the most optimal for your fans. We launched at the worst possible time and had ZERO viewers. We did collect some views afterwards though. With so many musicians using this new feature we decided to reach out and learn more about this new form of broadcasting. We caught up with Greg Drummonds who plays both covers and originals took some time to give me the low down on Facebook Live. Both of us are constantly trying to improve our presence along with expanding our knowledge in the music industry, so if you have any tips or feedback on this interview feel free to leave us a comment. Also, make sure to check out Greg’s music and bio.
