In the world of live broadcasting, Periscope is quickly becoming the leading “go-to” app taking the technology world by storm. Under the Twitter umbrella, this platform is an easy and simple way to stream live video straight from your phone. It is a favorite for bloggers and other online personalities looking to connect with their audience on a more personal level. If you have yet to dive into the Periscope world, here are some pro tips to get you started.
1. Troubleshooting errors when tweeting out your broadcast.
If you have issues tweeting out your broadcasts, you may need to sign out and then back to your Twitter account. If this doesn’t resolve the issue try updating your Twitter credentials under the settings section.
2. You don’t have to use your Twitter handle for Periscope.
Although you may prefer to, it is not required that you use the same username for both your Twitter and Periscope accounts. Therefore any changes to your Twitter handle will not automatically adjust your Periscope name.
3. Periscope is all about the followers.
When people follow you on Periscope and have push notifications turned on, they will automatically be invited to join your public broadcasts. In fact, the broadcasts will appear in their Watch tab for 24 hours.
4. Periscope is also available on the web.
Even if you have attendees that don’t have an iOS or Android device, they can still watch the broadcast through a web view. Make sure to send out a live broadcast link for them to access your stream through their browser.
Periscope is another great example of the importance of engaging with your audience. This engagement is vital to a strong marketing campaign that achieves true success.
