Facebook algorithms favor video. Oh, and groups. So, to get the best organic exposure on facebook, post videos in your groups.
Sure. Whatever you say.
Who said it? People who know all about making your brand stand out. Professionals who are PAID to make videos that bring in customers.
But I’m an author. I’m not selling a class. And, sadly, I’m not selling many books either. But if I get my face out there, people will hunt down my stories.
Hey. No need to hunt. I’ll provide the links.
But, apparently, the quest is part of the excitement. Or something.
So I took a course about making videos to share my brand.https://sharonhughson.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/2143024042585774-record.mov
But one is never enough. In fact, once a week is probably not enough.
My unplanned videos got the best views.
When I tried to only post the video to my group, only two people watched it. Of course, there are only 20 members (maybe) in the group, I shouldn’t have been surprised.https://sharonhughson.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/img_0315.mov
So I went back to posting live on my author page. And my sister watched.
Of course, I didn’t really announce that I would be going live. I need to do that. Maybe more people would show up if I did that. Maybe I’ll do that next week.
If I wait until the evening when more people might be on Facebook, maybe that will get me more views, too.
All I know is that I fumble for something to talk about in these videos, and no one comments to give me any ideas.https://sharonhughson.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/img_0361.mov
So, here I am posting a video or three on my blog. Because a few people read that, right? Maybe they’ll watch the videos and leave me some feedback.
I wish building my brand and audience worked the way the “professionals” said it would.
If wishes were riches, I’d own a small country.
If you’re reading this, what do you wish an author would talk about on live videos? If you watched the videos, what would make them more engaging?
