By live streaming great content on your social media pages, you're putting your business in front of more potential leads and far ahead of the competition.

This 1-on-1 video approach can be used to follow-up on an inquiry, offer how-to instruction, provide support, or just to say thank you for your business.
Don't Forget SEO for Your Videos
SEO isn't new, but AI technology and closed captions make it possible to transcribe what is said in the audio track of a video and make it searchable. This means it’s a good idea to apply SEO principles to your video scripts just like you would for old-fashioned textual content.
