Very similar to Facebook Live, Instagram Live is another easy, quick way to get your free classes live streamed within minutes. Unlike Facebook Live, where there are a few workarounds for private Groups or Pages to limit access to those who have pre-booked / paid, Instagram Live really is only appropriate if you don't want to restrict who can join your class.
💷 Does it cost anything?
Nope! As long as you have an Instagram account and a smartphone to stream from, you can get going with Instagram Live.
🙆♂️ What's it like for participants?
You'll need to tell participants to be on your profile in the Instragram app or website at the time you want to start streaming.
Participants will be able to post comments, but you won't be able to see them so you can't offer any direct motivation ("Hold for two more seconds, Svetlana!"), nor help correct on form or technique.
Some instructors also find it a bit tricky as there's no direct feedback from the class, which can feel a little off-putting as you're not sure if what you're doing is landing.
