Do you ever find yourself thinking that you should be doing more live videos, but you blank out because:
- you are terrified and
- you aren’t sure what to talk about?
I totally get it, I’ve been there!
But this changed for me a few months ago when I took part in a 14day challenge through Rankmakers, where we had to go live 14days straight.
Now, there was no way I could have completed the challenge without some of these ideas that I’ll be sharing with you.
My biggest takeaway from the challenge about going live in order to connect with may audience for my home-based business was that I didn’t necessarily need to be an ‘expert’ at whatever it is that I would be talking about.
I mean, my most viewed video in that time was the one on me trying to beatbox live, crazy I know.
Don’t believe me? You can check it out here.
So my hope is that after reading through these sources of ideas, you’ll be able to schedule and execute your live videos no problem.
Let’s get to it.
Isn’t amazing that you can literally find anything you are looking for by the click of a button? Simply type ‘how to…’, complete the sentence and you’ll have access to informative, value-adding notes to share with your audience. And remember you are not an expert, and if the information doesn’t originate from you simply site your source. People mostly don’t care where you are obtaining your information from, they just wanna know if it will help them.
If you have a home-based business of any sort I’m going to assume that you have some favourite podcasts that you listen to regularly. Podcasts are often a source of ideas for me because somehow listening to others talk about their ideas stimulates mine for some reason. So start taking notes during some of your listening sessions and share them with your audience.
Books are also a big part of my personal development as a home-based business owner. I love sitting down with a good book, but over the last few years I’ve had to rely heavily on Audio books to get my reading in because my kids were small. So again, whether you read a physical, digital or listen to a book, be intentional about writing down some note and sharing those insights with your audience.
4. QUESTIONS FROM YOUR AUDIENCE
What are people constantly asking you? What questions do you consistently answer? What do you find yourself getting compliments on the most about your business or life? Pay attention – this is what’s resonating with your audience so offering your input will add value to them.
5. YOUR LIFE
I know this is going to be a tough one for most people because we tend to look down on our lives and think that they are boring or not worth sharing about. But your experiences are yours, and you speaking boldy about them, and lessons you are picking up along the way is what will help others connect to you even more. Keep a running tab of these ideas as you go about life, and start sharing honestly about them.
I hope these ideas get your thinking juices flowing. They aren’t the only places, but this is where I consistently find my ideas for my live videos.
Once you’ve done your live videos, go back and audit and see what people seem to be connecting with the most, and keep producing more of that!
