In this article I am talking about how to
Sharing how to:
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.
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.
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:

Livestreaming is becoming more and more popular. There are so many opportunities now to connect with people all around the world in a live mode. Now your followers can see the real you, not the polished video but real you, and they can communicate with you in a real time.
I think if you are serious about your business you can’t ignore livestream. In this article I would like to talk about Facebook Live, I prefer it better to Periscope, though I believe that we need to maintain presence on both platforms.
Currently almost IOS users (iPhone and iPad) have them. You can check it by looking for a Facebook Live icon in your status bar. See the picture below.
To use it on your business page make sure that you have Facebook Page Manager app installed on your phone.
It is tempting to do Facebook Live on Personal profile rather on your Business page because you get higher numbers on your personal profile (see the picture below, both shows where done on the same day , one on personal profile with more than 100 views and on personal page with 1 person).
Consistency is the key – the more regularly you do it the better you become. Don’t be put off my nobody showing up. It takes time to build the following.
You can also do the Facebook live in the group, you don’t need to be admin, and people in the group will get notifications that you are going live, though check with the Group’s admin if it is ok. here is how you can do it:
