There is no doubt that Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms today.
With over five hundred million users, it is a place to share your personal life,or you can also opt to use it as a marketing tool to promote your brand or product.
Apart from the ‘classic use’ of Instagram as a social media app on which we upload photos, videos, or stories, Instagram also allows its users to go live;
when used wisely enough, this feature could leverage your page’s promotion on the app.
And yes, if needed, we can always turn the commenting option on these live broadcasts off.
Why should I go live on Instagram?
Going live is the ultimate method to interact with your followers/ customers.
This kind of interaction has a remarkable potential to encourage the viewers to leave comments while attending the live session.
