How to get more people to attend your Facebook and Instagram live videos

Going live on Facebook and Instagram but not getting the support you want? This is a common problem for bloggers and online business entrepreneurs who are testing the power of live social media for additional publicity and engagement, but are simply not getting what they want.

Here are some great ways to get more people to click on your live videos and attend the live stream you’re putting all your effort into.

1. Announce it in advance

If you go live whenever you want, it might suit you, but think about the times and times of your audience. You should announce that you’re going to post before you do, especially if you’re going to post something important or exciting that you really want people to engage with.

Instead of letting people know 10 minutes before you’re about to go live, let them know the day before (or even the week before, depending on how important your video content is). This gives people who are interested in your video plenty of time to make plans and rearrange anything that might prevent them from missing your live video.

2. Pick a good time

Don’t choose a time when most people are busy or can’t see you. If your target audience consists of people who work 9-5, you shouldn’t go live at 10am and expect it to be a hit.

You should go live between 8am and 9am, when people are likely to commute to work, during lunch breaks, when people are relaxing and browsing social media, or after work hours, when people are most likely to be available to watch your video.

3. Give your audience a reason to join

Are you asking your audience for their opinions and live updates during your live video? Are you entering each person into a drawing for prizes? Do you have something to announce that your audience would be excited to discover and participate in?

If you’re not giving people a good reason to join your live video stream and watch 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 you’re going live, but don’t reveal too much or no one will see it!
