I’m pissed off.
Well, not really pissed off, but I feel like it’s utilizing my precious time. Time is always running out because right at this very moment we are the youngest we will ever be. Right? So wouldn’t you agree that your time is extremely precious?
Soooo, here’s what it is, the thing that bugs me (maybe just a little).
As you may or may not know, I love doing live videos. I also love watching other people’s live videos so I can learn from them. I love learning.
Well, one of the things I see many people do at the beginning of their video that is encroaching on their viewers’ time is that they say, “Wait a minute or two while I share my video to every platform I’m on.” (Don’t get me started on the whole live video etiquette thing. I’ll cover that in my next blog titled “Facebook Live Video Etiquette — The Do’s and Don’ts”.) That’s cool and everything that you want more people to watch your video LIVE, but what about me? I got here early. Now I am waiting around for you to get more eyes on your video. Well, I’ve waited long enough, so I guess I don’t need to watch your video after all. I have other things I want to get done.
After about 30 seconds or so, I usually jump off of that video and do something else and I rarely go back to it. Life has moved on.
Does this sound familiar to you? Am I alone in this?
If you are one of the few people doing live videos today AND you have a great message you want to share AND you want to share it on all of your platforms so everyone you know has a chance to see you, then you might want to check out this awesome product called Live Leap. You can share your Facebook live videos to Twitter, LinkedIn, SMS and Email. It’s cray cray what can be done with today’s technology and this is one of those products. Oh, yeah, I almost forgot, your video can also be automatically shared to groups you own, too. You choose where you want to share them.
I use Live Leap on my Facebook business page. Every time I do a live video on my business page, it gets shared out to my personal page and a couple groups I own, plus it gets shared out to my Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. AND this happens WHILE I’m going live.
All I needed to do was set it up and now every time I broadcast it shares into those locations AUTOMATICALLY. It’s so cool and easy to use that I set mine up in 15 minutes.
Now my audience has no idea that I’m sharing it while they are watching me and I can pay attention to them. After all, I THINK they came here to watch what I have to deliver.
I use Live Leap for my biz page, but it can also be set up to share directly from your personal page or any other pages you own. Some of the silly stuff I do on my personal page (like my daily birthday videos) doesn’t really need to be seen anywhere else, though, so I leave it there.
Think about this. How many times have you watched the news where the newscaster said, “Wait. I need to wait until my mom is watching. She said she would be watching me tonight.”
Ummm, that’s never happened. Why? Because time. Time is our most precious commodity. None of us wants someone else to waste our time. Please correct me if I’m wrong, but my guess is that I’m right on this.
So if you are doing Facebook live videos and you are sharing your videos to more than one location, I would suggest checking out Live Leap. Not only will you save your viewers’ time, but you will save your own time AND you will be able to deliver more valuable content to your viewers.
