You have no clue what you really are gaining with this FB Live trend for your blog posts, webinars and products!
You’ve learnt a lot, but you haven’t made any returns on the investments you’ve put in.
You’re online business feels more like an online hobby despite all the time and money you’ve poured into it.
Perhaps that job isn’t looking so bad after all… At least you get weekends off, PAID holidays, sick leave and other benefits.
You watch your friends go out clubbing, parties, movies etc., and you are glued to your PC weekends and evenings trying to build that list, biz and make some income…
Does it feel like this ‘Facebook Live Video’ thing is an exclusive club that you’re never going to get membership to – but you keep applying anyway?

One client went from STARTUP TO COMMANDING CLIENTELE AND SENDING SOME AWAY in 3 months and is impacting lives by turning her knowledge and expertise into an online program. All the while being there for her children and family.
See, I know your pain, because I jumped into Facebook live video myself, with no clear PLAN or Strategy why I was doing them. Other than my mentors and people I looked up to were doing them, so why not me?
It seemed a great way to reach more people, maybe get some traffic, could I even build my list maybe? Plus who doesn’t like the popularity and social proof…

7 ways to Repurpose your Facebook Live & Increase Brand Authority!
#1. To repurpose your Facebook Live Video you gotta Download It. Very important, you now own your IP. Until you do this, Facebook owns your video and can delete, use it or even block you from accessing it…
Haven’t you had an experience where your video disappears from your Newsfeed and you find a notification from FB that it contravenes some convoluted FB law or you used Copyrighted music…I rest my case.
So immediately I am done with a live broadcast, we get to work immediately downloading it. Nothing else matter before this…(Well apart from family and life lol).
Don’t leave it to chance, you dont own Facebook. Download to your Cloud space or an external drive…I will be talking about these in the resources Section Below!
To download your Video: go to Your Personal Profile or Page depending on where you did the Livestream. Click on the video like you are going to watch the replay. Three little dots appear on the right side. Click on them and click Download SD on the drop down menu
If done in Profile, click on “More” on your profile. A drop down menu appears, Click on Videos and Go to “Your Videos.” Click on the “Pencil sign” on any video you wish to download. Save your video to cloud space or external drive to reduce on resources on your PC. Job done.
If you did your Live Stream on your Page, Simply click on Videos on the Side Navigation panel of your page, Find the video you wish to download. Follow instructions to download above.
#2. Transcribe your Live – we use temi.com and it costs $0.10 pence/minute. Thus a 30 min broadcast will cost £3. Many people recommend Rev.com because they have no clue that Temi exists. Rev costs $1/minute so a 30 minute video will cost you $30. See the massive saving…You are not in the business of Multiple streams of spending, so leverage temi… Plus you have better things to do with your time so dont spend hours trying to transcribe it yourself. #Youarewelcome
Now you have your video in written format. You should of course edit this transcript, lots of little typos you will find.
