How to Get More People to Watch Your Facebook and Instagram Live Videos
Are you going to live on Facebook and Instagram but don’t get the support you want? This is a common problem for bloggers and online business entrepreneurs who are testing the power of live social media to get more publicity and engagement, but are not getting what they want.
Here are some great ways to get more people to click through to your live videos and attend the live stream you’re putting all your effort into.
1. Announce it in advance
If you go live when you want, you might follow it, but think about your audience times and times. You should announce that you are going to post live before doing so, especially if you are going to post something important or exciting that you really want people to engage with.
Instead of informing people 10 minutes before you’re about to go live, let them know the day before (or even the week before, depending on the importance of your video content). This gives people interested in the video plenty of time to make plans and rearrange anything that might prevent the live video from being lost.
2. Pick a good time
Don’t pick a time when most people are likely to be busy or unable to see you. If your target audience consists of people who work day jobs from 9 to 5, you shouldn’t go out live at 10 o’clock in the morning and expect it to be a hit.
You must broadcast live between 8 a.m.
3. Give your audience a reason to participate
Are you asking your audience for their opinions and live updates during your live video? Are you entering each person in a prize drawing? Do you have something to announce that your audience would be excited to find out now that they would join?
If you’re not giving people a good reason to join your live video feed and see the content you’re creating, then don’t be surprised if your audience isn’t very large. You should announce the general content of your live video when you tell your followers that you are going live, but don’t reveal too much or no one will see it!
