Live video is everywhere. Snapchat. Instagram. Facebook. Youtube. You can find a live streaming video option in almost every social media app. Why is this important for you? Because video is the way that most connections and even business marketing will be done in the future. Even the powers that be at Facebook say so. You can hear what Facebook and the other platforms are planning AND MORE IMPORTANTLY what you should be doing to make the most of the trend so you are not left behind by listening to this episode of The Onion Juice podcast!
Why conversations are more powerful today than ever before. Live video is key.
Even in the increasingly digital age we live in, the conversations people have together are what build trust and deep relationship. And believe it or not, digital media is making it even more possible and more powerful. Live video is a way that you can broadcast not just your message but also your personality to those who follow you and create interactions that until recently, were only text-based. And it’s as people get to know your personality that you become not just a headshot on a bus bench or billboard, but a real person like them that they can get to know, like, and eventually trust. Find out how to position yourself to make the most of live video, on this episode.
We’ve moved from a world of static information to a world of live engagement.
Evan Spiegel of Snapchat was recently quoted as saying that we’ve moved from a world of static information to a world of live engagement. Look around you. People everywhere are posting videos through Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, Facebook, and many other platforms. You can now make a very personal, almost-real-life connection with people all around the world. On this episode, I’ve asked my friend Chelsea to help me think through the power of live video because she’s proven herself to be such a pro at it. I’d love for you to hear what she’s got to share.
The number one way to build trustworthiness is to let people see your face.
When you think of a person you love, a person you trust, what comes to mind? I bet it’s an image of their face, right? That’s because the face represents the person. It’s the “face of trust” and the “face of relationship” that connects you to them. Live video gives you the ability to let your ideal prospects and those you work with put a face to your name (and brand) so they can begin to build trust for you. That is one of the primary ways that business people are building trust these days, so I hope you’ll listen to this episode to find out some of the WHY behind using live video to get your message out.
More people own smartphones than own toothbrushes. What does that tell you?
I heard an amazing fact the other day. Worldwide, more people own smartphones than own toothbrushes. What does that tell you? More people today have the ability to receive your personalized, live video message than ever before – and they can do it almost anywhere they are. You’ve got the opportunity to reach out in unprecedented ways, ways that can build trust and engagement like never before. Listen to this “part one” episode I’m doing with my friend Chelsea about how you can use streaming video to make yourself stand out in your market.
