Business / Instructor + Streaming Classes
Can I broadcast streamed classes on Bookamat?
Bookamat allows you to take bookings and payments for classes streamed on platforms like Zoom etc. Simply enter the streaming link into the Broadcast Link (Schedule > Options > Broadcast Link) field to share it with your students.
This works with free and paid streaming services including Zoom, YouTube, Google Meet, Skype Conference Call and many others. Other things you can do with the broadcast feature include:
1. Add notes to let participants know about what equipment to bring or about passwords etc.
2. Set your streaming link to be recurring for the activity series.
3. Send a online class reminder 1 hour before class starts which includes the link and notes.
4. Specify which participants should receive the broadcast link and notes (all, paid only or none).
5. Allow participants to access the recording of the class after the class has ended.
6. Send the broadcast link (including notes) instantly to all participants at any time.
How to add streaming classes along side studio classes?
Here's how to continue to offering your students in-person studio classes, while also offering bookings via an online streaming link.
Go to My Business > Service Manager > Locations and add a new location called "Online Classes" or "Online Streaming".
Step 2. Add A New Service
Go to My Business > Service Manager > My Services and add a new Service called "Yoga Online Classes" or "Pilates Online Mat Classes" for example. Include in the service description information about the service being an online streamed class and that the streaming link will be provided to students on booking confirmation.
Step 3. Create A New Pricing
Go to My Business > Service Manager > My Services and add a new Pricing option for your online service called "1 Online Pass" for example. Your new service and pricing should look similar to this example.
Step 4. Add A New Activity
Go to My Business > Schedule and select Schedule New Activity. Fill in the form for the new online service assigning up to a maximum of 200 class spaces and scheduling the online class at the same time as your normal studio class so they overlap. Note to allow overlapping / concurrent activities to be taught by the same teacher, go to Settings > Booking Conditions and allow overlapping activities.
Step 5. Add A Broadcast Link
Go to My Business > Schedule > Options > Broadcast Link and paste in the unique live streaming (or pre-recorded video) link, e.g. from YouTube, Zoom, Google Meet, Skype Conference etc, for each class.
