I am OB-SESSED with Periscope. But, it didn’t start that way. In fact, I downloaded the app and watched a couple broadcasts. I did not see the value, so I proceeded to delete the app. I am so glad I gave it another chance. Periscope is the read deal. Here is why.
Periscope is different than any other social media platform. It is a live streaming video app where someone can broadcast virtually anywhere from their phone. The viewers can write comments in the live feed and also hook up the broadcaster with up to 500 hearts to the broadcaster. It is GENIUS.
I love how Throttle.net describes Periscope (& they agree, Periscope is Worth the Hype!):
“The idea behind Periscope is to see the world through someone else’s eyes, and it does exactly that. The app can do big things during historic events, and is great tool for journalists shooting live interviews, and works just as well for webinars and short informational broadcasts.”
Okay, so now we got that out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff.
Periscope is freakin’ awesome sauce. Here are a few reasons why:
1. Exponentially Build Your Brand.
Periscope is awesome for visibility. With the right strategy, you can quickly build your followers & attract your tribe – which will turn into your raving fans & happily paying clients. And it can happen really quickly when you do it correctly.
2. Connect with Your Tribe.
This one is HUGE. Periscope is a platform where you can share who you are, what you believe or how your products can be used. Because it is a live feed, there is no editing of the video. As a result, your viewers get to know you. I have been able to connect with my tribe in a real & authentic way. They love my vibe, my language because they can connect with me.
3. Re-purpose content.
You can save the videos and upload it to Youtube, your website or social media forums. You can even record a periscope & repurpose it as a podcast! In this day and age, where time is a precious commodity, this is the icing on top!
Periscope is great for prospective clients to get to know you, your services and what you believe.
Here are my are results that have happened from the last 2 months of being on Periscope.
- Over 750,000 hearts given to me from the viewers & 1500 followers
- Raving fans which share my content with their followers
- Increased client consultation calls by 200%
- 3 Requests for Interviews – rad for marketing and getting my name out there!
- Raving fans that have written testimonials on how my scopes have benefitted them
- PeriGirl of the Day (out of 6,000 women)
- Workshop collaborations
When I created my strategy for Periscope, it was a game changer. I have gotten so many requests for help with Periscope that I created a Strategy course to help businesses get “Scope Ready”. Because you can never make a first impression twice. Get Scope Ready Here!
Periscope is here to stay. It is THE BEST way to stand out and connect with people in a real, powerful way. I believe every brand should be capitalizing Periscope to build their brand and deepen connections.
