facebook live video interview

Facebook Live is the best way to boost your visibility online for free. Conducting an interview via Live streaming is simple and powerful.

For now, if you have an iPhone, you can “invite” someone to join your live stream.


They have to “accept” and then they will show up in the upper, right-hand corner of the screen.

If neither of you have an iPhone, there are various free apps out there where you can easily conduct an interview and add all types of fancy banners and links.

Interview 1: Transfer of credibility.

Who is someone that you look up to and admire? Ask that person for an interview.

When you candidly have a conversation with someone who is a few steps ahead of you, the credibility that they have with their audience transfers to you! Meaning you look like an expert too.

Think about Oprah. She interviews celebrities and well-known public figures. That has consequently put her in celebrity status.

Interview 2: Complimentary interview

Who is a person that has an audience that is similar to yours, but not the same? Simply collaborating with another person whose audience compliments yours is underrated.

Why do you think rappers collaborate with country singers? To expand their network, of course.

The best part about this collaboration is that they are gleaning from each other’s network without pitching anything. They are simply creating an amazing song together.

Lady Gaga and Beyonce are performing a song together because they both have similar fans, but not the SAME fans. That’s how your network grows exponentially.

For me, my target audience is moms. Instead of collaborating with another coach who’s audience is also moms, I might reach out to someone who teaches moms how to make quick and easy dinners. Or, a local ballet studio who’s clientele is mainly moms with young daughters.

So, get together with someone awesome who compliments your network (not competes with you,) deliver some value in the form of information or entertainment, and grow your list.

Interview 3: Customer or client

Ask a loyal, satisfied customer or a client to get on the interview with you.

As a thank you for their time, you could offer them a free product or session.


Expanding your network can come quickly and easily by simply having a conversation over live video. It’s best to keep the interviews short and concise, relevant and real.

And when you interview, have three questions prepared to ask.

Let me know how your interview goes in the comments below.
