Leveraging "Live" to Boost Your Brand

The copy you post on social media might be clever and the accompanying photo might be compelling, but as Facebook continues to tweak its algorithms, the organic reach of your content is dwindling. Less screen time, less impact. In the face of these diminishing returns, there’s a proven tactic for increasing engagement and reaching more people: livestreaming.

  • Live video content generates six times more engagement than regular videos
  • Facebook Live achieves 10 times more reach than all other types of Facebook content
  • People spend three times more time watching a Facebook Live video on average compared to a video that’s no longer live
  • Eighty-two percent of surveyed adults preferred live video from a brand to social posts.

Learn how to leverage live video to boost your brand and amplify your messaging strategy. Sarah Weller and Mitch Mattern from Children’s Hospital & Medical Center will discuss the why, how, when, where and who pieces of “going live” — sharing practical advice, creative broadcast ideas, easy-to-use and inexpensive tools and lessons learned.
