In this article I am talking about how to
integrate your activities on Busker on your Facebook business page.
Sharing how to:
- promote your scheduled broadcast on Facebook;
- repurpose your broadcast after the show.
Busker is one the newest livestream apps emerging in the digital world. While it doesn’t have many users yet in comparison to Periscope for instance, it does have features that other livestream apps don’t provide.
On Busker you can get paid directly by your viewers without them leaving the broadcast and you can schedule your broadcast.
I embrace new apps but I always find the ways how I can combine it with Facebook. Not only because Facebook is my favourite platform but because it is one of the biggest players in the market and people are hanging there by default. Besides the Busker app is new and there are not that many users yet, so you may want to invite your Facebook friends to join you.
NOTE: when this article was created there wasn’t an option for Android users but it’s coming very soon, meanwhile people can watch you on desktop (without being able to interact)
Busker has this super feature that you can schedule your profile. When you create a broadcast you can choose to share it on Twitter automatically. Technically you can do on Facebook as well but personally for me that option is grayed out.
I will show you how you can promote your Busker presence both on your Facebook personal profile and your business page.
How to promote your upcoming show on Busker on Facebook.
After you have scheduled your broadcast, you need to share the link to it, so people can subscribe. Click on the icon:
It will take you to this screen:
After you’ve clicked on the Facebook icon you will see the following screen, click on the arrow “>”
You will be given a choice either to share to your personal timeline or in the groups. You can’t share the link simultaneously to different places. If you want to share on your personal profile and in the groups – share on your profile first and then share from your profile into the groups.
NOTE: if you are not an admin of the group, before you share the link to your Busker broadcast, make sure that the group admin is ok with you to share and you are not overstepping any group rules.
When you share on your profile make sure that the settings for that post is set on public thus it can be easily shared by anyone and is visible also to people who are not friends with you on Facebook. If the post is not public you won’t be able to share it on your business page:
This is how it can look on your personal profile:
Now you need to share it on your Facebook page as well. These are steps you need to take to share from your phone. when you click on Share button these options will appear, Click on “Write post”
By default Facebook will offer you to post on your Timeline, you need to click on “Tap to Change” and choose your page. Make sure that it’s a public post so you can share to your page.
This is how you share links to your scheduled Busker broadcasts.
How to repurpose your Busker broadcasts.
You can share the replay links the same way. But most likely Facebook will decrease organic reach for those posts because they don’t want you to lead people away from the page.
If you broadcasts are no longer than 20 minutes you can save them on your telephone or iPad and then upload directly on Facebook. Like this:
