Social Media Marketing: Using Facebook Live
Ready, set, action! If your small business uses social media, you’ve probably heard about one of Facebook’s newest and most popular features: Facebook Live Video. Facebook Live allows individuals and pages with a Facebook account to livestream video, meaning it occurs in real time on followers’ newsfeeds.
Video has become increasingly prevalent online as the most shareable posts on Facebook and the fastest route to gaining a new follower. How can your small business get involved? Check out this step-by-step guide for setting up Facebook Live Video and some ideas to get started.
1. Set up a plan.
Pick a topic you think people will be interested in and build a storyline around it. Write compelling points for the video, though not necessarily an entire script. Establish objectives, who will be involved in the process and what to accomplish. Keep the livestream flexible and in-the-moment, but don’t go into it blind.
2. Generate ideas.
3. Start broadcasting.
Once the livestream closes, Facebook will automatically save the video to your business page for future viewings. You also have the option to save the video to the phone’s camera roll for other sharing options.
When it comes to storytelling on social media, Facebook Live takes marketing to a whole new level. Facebook Live Video offers fast, dynamic and real-life visual engagement for your company to appear transparent and trustworthy. By utilizing this key tool Facebook provides, your small business can gain followers and customers. So get out there, and get streaming!
Welcome to Lithtex Printing!
The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.
Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.
Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.
Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.
In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.
In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.
Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
