livestreamcontentideasHere are 7 Awesome Content Ideas for Your Facebook Live Stream

#1. Sharing Exciting Moments

  • Simply sharing exciting moments is a great option –and this will also help you to stand out and to reach people who perhaps are not already engaged with your brand.
  • You might opt to stream a concert that you’re at, or another live event. Or perhaps you might stream yourself arriving at a new hotel, or at a party or festival.
  • You want your audience to feel engaged and you want to build trust so that they will read your content and so that they will believe what you have to say.

#2. Vlogging

  • If YouTube has taught us anything, it’s that the content you share doesn’t have to be exciting at all
  • Vloggers on YouTube make videos of themselves talking and presenting to their audience and very often this includes nothing but just an insight into their daily lives.
  • This is the perfect kind of content for a personal brand as it allows you to engage even more with your audience and that level of connection and of trust will make all the difference when it comes to getting more sales, followers, and subscriptions.

#3. Top Tips

  • One thing to remember when creating your content is that you need to cater to people who are just arriving as well as people who have been watching right from the beginning.
  • Most of your viewers probably won’t watch from the start.
  • This makes structuring your video as β€˜top tips’ perfect – because people can understand each tip without needing the context of the last tip.
  • What’s more is that this format is perfect for speaking freely while still having some structure.
  • The list will keep bringing you back to the main topic but you’ll be able to speak freely on each point.

#4. Reviews

  • Live video is ideal for reviews.
  • Again this gives you a good focus while still allowing you to talk freely.
  • At the same time, a review works well live because your viewers can ask questions and ask to see specific things or
    have you demo specific features.
  • What works especially well of course is to review your own products!
  • At this point, it becomes a little like shopping through the TV!

#5. AMAs

  • An AMA is an β€˜Ask Me Anything’.
  • This idea was popularized by Reddit and is almost a form of live media in its own right in that format.
  • It’s also ideal for discussing things directly with your audience.

#6. Discussion

  • Another option to do some influencer marketing.
  • Get someone well known in your niche around and discuss the subject with them for all to watch.
  • Your viewers can join in.

#7. Tours

  • A tour of your home, your office or even your local town is a great way to be personal and open with your audience as well as to build your image.

How to Create Engaging Live Videos

When presenting your video, try to speak slowly and clearly and to project your voice as much as you can. The best videos will have some kind of focus and some kind of purpose (remember the above content ideas)

Let your audience interact with you and be sure to acknowledge them when they log in or when they comment. And remember that you need to cater to people who are just arriving – keep recapping on what has been said and remember that not everyone has been watching since the start πŸ˜‰

    • You will be great at doing it Susan, I just know it πŸ™‚ Yes it is simple once you understand what you need to know, right? Thanks so much for your comment, always appreciate it!

  1. I haven’t checked it out yet, but plan on doing so soon. Thanks for sharing these great ideas. I always have an issue with what to share and this inspired me with some topics. Thanks Joan.

  2. There is no question that live video is THE marketing technique that’s hot right now & that’s able to quickly grow your brand & business. We’re working on incorporating several types of video into our marketing strategy, including Facebook Live, but we want to have a few goals in place first. Love the ideas for topics, very helpful!

    • Having those goals in place is very important before you start a new marketing strategy πŸ™‚ Video marketing, and especially FB Live, will help grow your brand and business in a HUGE way! Thank you Meghan for your feedback πŸ™‚ Very much appreciated!

  3. Joan – I LOVE the idea of giving a tour of the home or hometown. As an author from the midwest with fictional characters from the midwest, I feel that Midwesterners are often seen as simple or unable to adapt to city/coastal life. I would love to show people what I find so appealing about my beautiful surroundings!

    • Awesome Joan, glad you enjoyed that idea!! I say just go for it and do it and then you can prove to people that living in the midwest is very appealing πŸ™‚

  4. These are great ideas for Facebook Live Stream and they really opened my mind to how I could use live video for my own blog. Thank you for helping me to see the possibilities.

    • So much more engagement in “realtime” when doing FB live, Kristen πŸ˜‰ Videos are fun, especially when you have your audience is engaging with you live πŸ™‚

  5. Fabulous ideas in this post, Joan! Love how some of them are very personal too. Like offering a tour of your home. Funnily, Roslyn suggested I do that because I keep talking about how colourful my house is. Considering the possibilities, however, I am a bit video shy myself. You make it seem effortless and I guess it offers complete vulnerability when we show ourselves in a video to our tribe! Thanks for the tips!

  6. Great ideas, Joan! It’s easy to get stuck and not know what to talk about on FB Live. Thank you for the ideas! Love the idea of a tour! Really helps your audience see your authentic self! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you Staci! Glad you enjoyed the ideas πŸ™‚ Being authentic is so important to show to your audience so they begin to know , like and trust you and your brand πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Joan,

    Great post. You’ve given us some awesome suggestions on how to engage with people more and more. I haven’t worked with FB Live yet but plan on doing that and hopefully very soon.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  8. Hi Joan

    Great tips for coming with content for Facebook live streams. It is not enough to use the technology but to use it so effectively which you have shown to us. Thanks for sharing. Take Care and have a lovely weekend.

  9. I’ve read a few posts this week on live streaming and I’ve seen a few people already using this facility. I’d be silly not to try it out but there’s a part of the ‘live’ streaming that is a bit scary!

    Enjoy the journey!

  10. I know that I lot of people are excited about Facebook Live. I have a couple of trainings for it but just don’t have an interest at this time. I see how it can be beneficial and perhaps I’ll look into it in the future.
