Live Video Webinar

How to Use Live Video – From Facebook to Instagram


On-demand webinars are available for one year after the live webcast.

80% of consumers say they would rather watch a brand’s live video than read a blog or social post, according to a study from New York Magazine and Livestream. Learn how to tie live broadcasts to business objectives and get viewers talking.

Many brands have recognized the power of live video to communicate spontaneously and authentically with its audience. But with so many platforms to choose from—including Facebook, Periscope, Instagram and Snapchat—it’s difficult to know which is best for your audience and message. And choosing a platform is just the first step. With so many brands clamoring for attention, communicators must differentiate their broadcasts and move beyond vanity metrics to focus on getting viewers to comment, share and convert over to owned channels.

On Dec. 7, PR News and communications pros will share tactics for creating scroll-stopping live broadcasts that will get audiences commenting and clicking while they get a live peek behind the curtain. By the end of the webinar, you'll have a better understanding of what each platform offers, content ideas, a list of do's and don'ts for live video and tips on how and when to promote your broadcast.

Over the course of the program, Claire Baumann will share how the UN Foundation uses live video to build loyal constituencies and communities, as well as an example of how they've collaborated with corporate partners to broadcast live from events. GoDaddy's Stacey DePolo will provide an inside look at how the company has used employees' personal brands on Periscope and Facebook Live in order to drive brand advocacy. And Jasmine Atherton will share Airbnb's latest live video campaigns, which drive engagement among local and global audiences alike.
