The worst has happened – Facebook is no longer supporting the Dual Broadcast feature!
All right, we might be overdramatizing… But we did love the Dual Broadcast option because it meant we could go “Live with” our friends, conduct interviews and bring more value to our audience! And we get it, Facebook has to prioritize, and right now they’re focusing on Stories, polls and messaging.
But if you’re like us and you’re looking to bring your Live production to the next level, we’ve got the perfect solution for you! Be.Live!
Yes, Be.Live is a third-party tool which offers many options such as:
- Adding custom frames to your Live broadcasts
- Interviewing friends/experts/influencers
- Hosting a talk show
That’s why inside this training, I’ll show you a step-by-step tutorial of how you can use Be.Live to elevate your online presence! Let’s dive in!
Facebook Live | How to Add Custom Frames on Your Videos
*** Important Note: Please, make sure you’re using your computer for this!
Before we get to the really good part, you need to create an account. So go to Be.LIVE and sign up.
They offer 3 different pricing plans but before you make the decision to upgrade, try it out for FREE! Make sure you love the service before you pay for it.
Now that we have that out of the way, let’s look at your broadcasting options:
- Solo — for a regular Facebook Live, where you show up on your own (with the added awesomeness of the BeLive features, of course)!
- Interview — will you be interviewing someone? Then this is the option for you!
- Talk Show — invite several people to join you! You also have the option to share your screen with your audience!
Host A Broadcast
How do you do that?
Go to “Host a Broadcast”, and choose if you want to go Solo, do an Interview or have a Talk Show. For the purposes of this tutorial, I’ll choose to host a Talk Show.
Then, you need to decide where to go Live. And the options are:
- Personal timeline;
- Business Page you manage;
- Test (for your eyes only)!
I’ll choose to go Live on our Business Page, and then I’ll take a minute or two to come up with a captivating description of my broadcast. This is really important because you need to tell your audience why they should join you!
Extra Feature: “Create a scheduled Facebook Live”. This feature allows you to post the description of your broadcast on your page, and it will show up as a Reminder! When people click on it, Facebook will notify them when you’re going Live! That way, you’ll be able to share your GENIUS with even MORE people! Is that amazing or what?!
Add Your Branding
We’re coming to the best part — the custom frames!
Next to the “Create Broadcast” button, you’ll notice another one, called “Add Your Branding”.
When you click on it, it will give you the options to add:
- Brand Colors;
- Designed Frames!
And inside “Designed Frames” is where the MAGIC happens! BeLive gives you a few options for pre-designed frames, which are really awesome. But you can take it one step further and have a designer create custom frames just for you! You can use websites like 99designs.com or fiverr.com to do so!
Once you upload your NEW design, click on “Save branding” and then simply “Create Broadcast”!
Welcome to the Production Studio!
You’re not Live yet! Now, you’re waiting in the Lobby (or the Dashboard) of your Broadcast. And while you wait, BeLive gives you tips and tricks for success! How cool is that?
You have the option to connect your camera (which is what I did), upload a picture to be featured during your Live or share your screen! Once you do that, click on “^ to Broadcast” and you’re DONE!
You’ll see how your Live will look like in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
Now all you have to do is “Start Broadcast” and dazzle everyone with your AWESOMENESS!
Extra Feature: On Screen Updates! It allows you to send on-screen messages to your viewers!
IMPORTANT: When you schedule a show, you need to go Live from the same place where you scheduled the broadcast! That way, the Reminder post you have on your page, will automatically turn into a Live Broadcast!
