Instagram Live is a great tool for growing your audience. But if you don't set yourself up properly, you and your viewers could have a frustrating experience. Here are a few tips to help you have the best IG Live experience.
How Do I Join IG Live?
IG Live only works on cellphones unless you use another app which can get complicated, so I suggest sticking to your cellphone. There are 2 ways to join an IG Live. You can go to your home screen in IG and look at the top of the screen. If anyone that you follow is live, click on their icon at the top of the home screen and you're in.
Or you can go directly to someone's account and then click on their icon in the top left corner to join their IG Live. Once you're in, you can leave comments in the chat box, ask questions with the question button or show love with the heart button.
How Do I Host My Own IG Live?
If you want to invite someone on screen with you (I highly recommend this! It's a lot of fun.) look at the list of viewers after you've started your IG Live and tap on someone's name to send them a request to join you. If they accept, they'll magically be on screen with you! Viewers can also request to join you. If this happens, you'll get a notification during your IG Live. If you accept, they'll join you on screen.
