Facebook Live: Going Live Using Your Desktop | Ecamm Live Review

Facebook Live is one of the most utilised platforms when it comes to social media, on the lips of many influencers, because it allows us to have a 2-way conversation.

So with so many using Facebook Live as a way to livestream, it is no surprise that I started on the self-discovery path of how to up my Facebook live game. Sidenote: If you really want to stand out on Facebook live, be you and add more you!

How To Use Facebook Live

  • Tap What’s on your mind? at the top of your News Feed.
  • Tap Live Video.
  • Write an optional description and tap Go Live.
  • Tap Finish when you want to end your broadcast.

Sidenote: These are the technical instructions for doing a Facebook Live on mobile, there are ways to connect with your audience on a live, selling with confidence is something you may want to check out.

****Newsflash – You don’t have to use your mobile phone to go live ****

How to Use Facebook Live Like A Maverick

I am going to introduce you to some software that is a way for you to feel more at home when going live,  especially if you have crickets on your broadcast at times (let’s be real it happens). It’s called Ecamm Live & it helps you to get all fancy.

NOTE: Before we go any further I want to point out I’ll be sharing links to products I use and love. I share an affiliate link as a business to get a return for the time I put into this post. The affiliate link gives me a tiny commission and doesn’t cost you any extra. If you don’t want to use my affiliate link and it doesn’t cost you extra, may as well use my link right?

What is Ecamm Live?

So, in a nutshell, Ecamm Live is a way to use your Mac to broadcast live on Facebook. Why would you want to go live on your Mac when you have your phone?

Well the benefits of using a desktop to go live on Facebook include:

  • The ability to add graphics and text overlays
  • With Ecamm Live go live on groups & pages you are admin of
  • The ability to play pre-recorded video
  • A fantastic way to share your screen, present and still be heard in the background

Plus I like having my mobile as a second device I can still use to check sound quality, add my sound effects and not worry about my tripod falling over and smashing my phone #truestory

Will Ecamm Live Make You A Better Facebook Live Broadcaster?

Define better?  It ain’t magic, I am still finding ways to improve my delivery style while staying authentic, yet still being very awkward #embracingwhoiam

So this isn’t about being entertaining, conversational, educating or being edutainment because that is something we strive to do daily. This is about using tools that are going to help you have a more interactive broadcast using the cost-effective tool Ecamm.

So why would interactivity make you stand out on Facebook Live?

Well, we are visual creatures and instead of watching Netflix or Youtube people are choosing to hang out with you. You can visually show them your latest offer, visually share videos and just keep everyone engaged with various content all in one broadcast, boom!

Some of the other features of Ecamm Live that I missed


Ecamm Live Price

So with everyone using a subscription model for software as a service, I am happy to say Ecamm doesn’t do that. With you now have to pay a minimum of $12 per month but with Ecamm you pay $29 and that is it, no more money exchanges hands. I don’t know about you, but I think that is awesome.

Ecamm Live Updates For Facebook Live

Erm can you say regular! ECamm updates are as regular as a person who consumes prune juice #justsaying

So whether you use Ecamm or don’t, don’t tell me I didn’t share the good news, because I did!

Ecamm Live  has a heck of a lot of features that can’t be ignored and it even has a way for you to trial it too.
