Gone are those days, when you would set up a website that has some quality features embedded to enable user interaction, or you would use your social media networks to stay connected with your people. Things are changing, people are expecting much, and more, and a video streaming app like Periscope that facilitates businesses to broadcast live without the need to invest any resources like time, money or efforts, can serve the purpose of staying connected with their consumers with just a tap on their Smartphones.
One of the greatest advantages of using Periscope for live video streaming is that you can use your mobile phone to broadcast from anywhere at anytime. You can either use your twitter account to login or create a standalone profile to broadcast. With a click on the “Start Broadcast”, you can start your live broadcast and stay connected with your people. Also, your followers can choose to replay it at a later time as this option is available for the next 24 hours from the time of broadcast and it also provides you with an option to share the broadcast across the social media platforms.
Like Facebook, where you can express your interest over a particular post or video by providing likes, Periscope also provides you with the option to bombard your favorite videos with any number of hearts ( you can provide a maximum of 500 hearts for a single video).
Create a landing page for your periscope users with some lead magnets. Experience unlimited traffic flow.
Emojis have a charm to attract. Include these in your broadcast.
Before your first periscope attempt, research on how others are doing it. Gather ideas, brainstorm & collaborate everything in your broadcast.
Titles attract the attention! Include an impressive & catchy title and content that interests your audience. Make your title livelier by adding emojis.
You can shift camera position (from front to rear) by tapping twice on the screen.
Create relationships through live interaction. Don’t shy off! Remember you are not alone.
For the first time, you might be uncomfortable. Be confident while you speak, focus on what you are speaking, pause occasionally wherever necessary & then continue.
If a broadcast is impressive, express your support by releasing hearts (you can provide up to 500 hearts for a single broadcast).
Start out by giving hearts to others. It follows the simple rule of “What goes around comes around”,
Thank people for their interest in your broadcast.
Write down all the important points that you want to periscope so that you do not miss out anything.
The first impression is always the best. Greet your audience with an impressive welcome screen saver.
Request your followers to share your broadcast
Broadcast shares works on the same rule as that of hearts. Share the broadcast of others and they will share yours.
Unsure of what to broadcast? Choose any topic at random and broadcast live.
Be unique in your attitude & approach. This applies to your topics, style of presentation, dress & even your welcome note.
People love to know what happens behind the screens. For instance, you can take them on a tour across your staff and how lively life is at your organization.
People like to be part of your business ventures. You can invite them to be a live part of your business events via broadcast.
Instead of linking to your bio, link your landing pages to your periscope:
