How To Go Live On Instagram

Instagram Live is a fantastic way to engage with followers around the world. It doesn’t just allow you to create a broadcast, but it’s also a means to interact with audiences and attract new followers and customers.

When Instagram Stories started being a part of Instagram, it became one of the best ways to increase your reach on the platform. Most brands and individuals realized that the reach offered by their stories was way more than their normal posts on the platform. Instagram Live was rolled out as a feature of Instagram stories.

However, these days, most people who go about live streaming do not usually just use their cellphone and have dedicated setups that they use for live streaming video online.

Depending on the level of the live streamer, the set up could be as simple as a tripod with a cellphone or it could be a complete setup with lightning, dedicated cameras, and microphones.

These days, Instagram Live is one of the most engaging live streaming video platforms in the world today and is used by many content creators and brands to connect with their audiences in a convenient manner.
