Periscope is new, Periscope is fresh and Periscope is the next big thing when it comes to social media, connectivity and making the world just a little bit smaller. I’m a daily broadcaster on Periscope and you can find me @ScottWilliams or search “Scott Williams” and I’ll be the 1st one to show up. I have broadcasted over 400 times and received nearly 4,000, 000 hearts and have been using Periscope since a couple days after it launched.
During my time on Periscope I’ve concluded that there are 4 Easy Ways To ROCK Periscope:
- Be Real – Be yourself, don’t try to copy anyone else, mimic other broadcasters or broadcast some fake version of the real you. People can see right through bogus broadcasters in the Periscope world and they prefer connecting to real, authentic, what you see is what you get type of people.
- Be Often – You should broadcast consistently. I would recommend at-least once daily as the broadcasts remain available for replay for only 24 hours. Additionally, as people search your profile and find that you have not broadcasted in the last 24 hours it will show “no recent broadcasts.” “No recent broadcasts” may limit viewers desire to come back to view your future broadcasts. If you can’t do daily broadcasts, find some regular rhythm.
- Be Calculated – There should be some thought into the what, why, when and where of your broadcasts. I’m not recommending that you have notes and a robust plan, I’m simply saying there should be a method to your Periscope Madness.
- Be Kind – This is similar to the Golden Rule, “One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.” It’s simple don’t troll, don’t post rude comments, don’t be disrespectful, don’t ask female broadcasters to show you their boobs, don’t be argumentative… simply be kind. If you don’t like what’s going on in a broadcast leave the broadcast, on the other hand if you are a broadcaster be kind to your viewers.
