9 Ways To Bore The Boots Off Your Facebook Live Viewers [Part 1]

9 Ways To Bore The Boots Off Your Facebook Live Viewers [Part 1]

Do you know the aim of your Facebook live?

It’s simple. Really simple.

You only need to get people to watch till the end. Yep, that’s all.

Do you know what that means?

You have to keep your audience entertained so they want MORE of you.

 

However, your live talk doesn’t get the likes, shares and comments it deserves.

“Oh no, someone is leaving my FB live…” *sigh*

You wonder: Does my passionate talk not captivate my audience?

 

Watch the red flags.

I’ve collected the 9 most common FB live mistakes that bore the boots off their viewers.

Naturally you want to avoid those mistakes. Right?

So, simply turn them around to engage, charm and attract your dream clients.

 

1. You don’t tell your audience what this broadcast is about

It sounds obvious to tell people what you’re going to talk about. Yet I see many people start their FB lives without telling their audience what it is about.

Usually you’ve already spent a lot of time thinking about what you’ll be talking about so that you simply forget to share it.

Remember: Always share your topic with your audience BEFORE you start speaking.

 

2. You stop mid-sentence every few seconds to say “Hi” to whoever has just joined

You see that a lot. As many people are doing it, it must be good. Right? Wrong!

That totally interrupts the natural flow and hurts your listeners’ attention.

Additionally it bores those who showed up on time. It bores those who want to learn from you. It bores those that might be your dream clients.

Not good.

Conclusion: It is ok to say “Hi” to a few people in the first seconds. But then quickly share your message with those who are already watching.

 

3. You forgot to fix the microphone before going live

Guilty!

That happened to me once. Boy, what a disaster.

I simply assumed that my microphone is working. Because on this day I already had three Skype coaching calls with clients.

 

So why think about the microphone?

Seems switching from Skype to FB confused my computer. And I’ve heard from others that they had the same issue.

hmmm … lesson learned! Always check your microphone before the talk. You want people to hear you.  🙂

 

4. You stream directly from your bed just a few minutes after your woke and you look like a hairy monster

Don’t laugh! I’m serious.

This happens more often than one would think. But honestly, I have a hard time explaining why people would do that.

So, let’s keep it this way: Avoid this mistake by any means.

 

Until next time… Remember the world needs your voice ♥

    Totally agree especially #2 – that is my biggest pet peeve. I listen to a live for a reason and it’s not to hear the speaker saying hello to everyone.
    Great article 🙂
