Facebook – the show must go on.
Facebook still combines clever distribution with innovation to make it the single most important channel.
Maybe you’ve heard people criticizing Facebook recently, saying it’s where baby boomers share photos of their grandkids, and that young people aren’t there anymore. Well, in reality, Facebook is still the biggest show in town. Two billion monthly active users don’t lie.From a business perspective, Facebook’s great advantage is its flexibility for both content and distribution. Click To Tweet
Facebook offers a versatility that no other platform can. Want to pump out a twelve paragraph blog entry? That’ll work. Ten-second video? Sure. Twenty-minute video? No problem. Some sample photos? Get ‘em up there!
And it offers incredibly rich targeting. Want to target people between 18 and 25 years old who live in downtown California and are interested in skateboarding? No problem. Spend $12 and several thousand of them could see your post of a cool skate T-shirt that you designed.
So that’s all great, but can you do anything really innovative on Facebook? Sure – with Facebook Live.
Live lets you broadcast in real time to your followers, take questions and get instant reactions.
Now, it’s not for everyone. There are only a few live TV shows for a reason: they’re hard to do. But if you’re experienced with video, it can be very powerful.
