Getting Started with Facebook Live: How to amplify your action and bring more people into the movement
Watch this webinar to learn how you can use Facebook Live to amplify your next action and bring people into the movement.
This webinar covers:
- The basics of Facebook Live - how to broadcast, how to build an audience, and how to interact with viewers
- How to move people from Facebook spectators to movement participants
- The gear that will improve the quality of your broadcast
This webinar is a module from a two day training that teaches how to recruit thousands of people online and move them to lead offline actions. If you'd like us to lead a training for your organization, get in touch with Randall at email@example.com. It's never too early to reach out.
- Facebook's guide to Live
- Learn from the mistakes that The New York Times has made
- Use YouTube's captioning tool to create captions for your Facebook native video (not Facebook Live)
- Rode VideoMic Me Directional Microphone for Smartphones (Do not buy this mic from Amazon. The Amazon mics are counterfeit and defective.)
- Shoulderpod S1 Professional Smartphone Rig
- Manfrotto MMC3-01 Compact 5 Section Aluminum Monopod

The four items above are my basic kit. I use the following items less often.
- Portable Charger RAVPower Ace Series (for longer actions and/or actions like building occupations where the power might be shut off. This will charge a phone ~6 times.)
- Rode smartLav+ Lavalier Microphone for iPhone and Smartphones (for interviews with a single person)
- Miracle Sound Deluxe Lavalier Lapel Clip-on Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone (I use the Rode lav mic but this one is 1/5th the cost and also works great)
