I don’t know about you but preparing for a Facebook Live can be pretty stressful. And if you let that stress and/or time constraints get in the way of really promoting your FB Live beforehand, all that hard work can often be for naught.

That’s why I’m excited to share with you this quick & easy tutorial that will help you create an attention-grabbing Facebook Live promo graphic (or any other special event promo graphic) for your social media platforms.

So what app do you need for this ridiculously simple and easy promo design?

The Legend App

I didn’t know about this awesome trick for showing time in a Legend app video until Brandi from MamaTeaches showed it to me awhile back. (And if you’re new to the Legend app or would like to know how to use it in your iMovie videos, check out this other tutorial here.)

The following tutorial video for creating this simple but engaging graphic is from my paid SPMS membership site. Sign up for my weekly SPMS tip emails and you can watch it for free and have your FB live graphic created in seconds.

Here are the written instructions:

1. Open the Legend app.

2. Type in your time (or any text).

3. Tap the photo icon at the bottom if you want to overlay the text on one of your own photos or videos. Don’t tap it if you just want a solid background.

4. This is important. Choose the very first design they provide you. That’s the one with the cool clock effect. The clock will actually show the time you type in. Awesome, right?

5. Once you tap that design, you’ll be shown a screen where you can post your graphic to social media or save it to your camera roll. You also get a row of additional color patterns (if you chose a solid background) or filters (if you chose a photo or video) to select from.

And that’s it! You little promo video will be six seconds long and will take almost that same amount of time to make!
