Confession time…I am officially obsessed with Periscope! Remember a month ago when I was so scared to try broadcasting live that I decided to do a month-long challenge to make myself get over the fear? Well now I’m over my fear…and I’m obsessed with scoping! The opportunity to connect with so many fabulous #SeptemberScopers has been amazing and it’s in a way you just can’t do via written word. There is something about being able to engage in real time that makes the connections seem deeper and more genuine. During the last month I have learned a LOT about scoping so I wanted to share a few of the tips I’ve learned…
-Have a purpose for your scope…even if the purpose is just to tell a funny story, have a reason for hitting the “Start Broadcast” button
-Engage, engage, engage…I think if you’re going to use social media then you need to be social and Periscope is no exception! Comment, give hearts, connect off Periscope, just engage with each other!
-Introduce yourself in the beginning and at the end in case viewers missed your introduction
-Ask for what you want during your broadcast…it’s okay to ask people to comment about particular topics, or give hearts if they like your tips or share with their followers…if someone is new they might not know what to do, so it’s okay to ask!
-Have fun…the more enjoying doing the broadcasts, the more others will enjoy watching them!
