7 Facebook Live Mistakes I’ve Made So You Don’t Have To

Thursday, October 20th, 8 AM to 10 AM @ the Innovation Connector
1208 W. White River Blvd., Muncie

Have you noticed the videos of your friends going Live in your Facebook feed?  Maybe you’ve even tapped on the Live icon yourself then freaked out a little because you realized you weren’t quite sure what to do next.

Or maybe you’ve done a few Facebook Live videos and thought, I think I did OK, but I’m still not sure what it’s all about.

When Facebook Live was first available to the masses, Derek jumped in headfirst.  He was determined to figure it out and wasn’t afraid to fail.

“Oh boy, did I fail,” he says.  “But I learned something new each time I made a mistake.”

Come to this presentation to learn how you can keep from making the same mistakes Derek made and harness the power of Facebook Live to reach your audience.
