This will boost your brand recall as well as result in yet more likes and shares.

Also, your followers will be waiting in anticipation of the next video test-drive.

Facebook Live Idea 8: Host a Q&A Session

One of the best Facebook Live ideas is to shoot a Q&A session, which will answer questions from showroom visitors as well as Facebook followers in the video comments.
