Are you ready to absolutely kill it with Facebook Live? Or…do you find it a little scary to get started?

I want you to know that you can absolutely increase your profits using Facebook Live. You just have to get over that initial fear that is holding you back from going LIVE on camera.

Ahem…I do realize this is harder than it sounds for many. HOWEVER, getting in front of your audience is your golden ticket to connecting with them personally and deepening your relationship with them. And, let me tell you, this correlates to larger profit margins – much, much larger.

Once you see the metrics from your first Facebook Live broadcast, that will be all the encouragement you need to do another and another and another…

In episode #111 of my podcast, Kim shares huge secrets about the free reach of Facebook Live and why Facebook is able to successfully increase your newsfeed presence by 10 times that of a regular post. We also discuss strategies and tips for creating incredibly successful Facebook Live broadcasts, leveraging the extensive reach.

We take a deep dive into:
