You Tube Live lets you directly embed the live broadcast onto a page on your website, so there’s no software to download, no additional registration process; members just visit a page on your site and they can watch without any hassles.
Inside our own membership, we also embed a chatroom directly below the You Tube Live video using a service called Chatroll – this enables members to ask questions or chat among themselves; making the live sessions more interactive and a lot more fun for attendees.
All Paid users can message and post and they also have added benefits.
However including this type of content in your membership does add a new wrinkle to worry about – member attendance.
The more live calls you ask your membership to attend, the lower your average attendance is likely to be.
If you have a packed schedule of live calls, with several taking place every week, then it’s asking way too much of your members.2 to 4 live sessions per month is the typical sweet spot.
