Periscope is popping up everywhere! It’s the app that let’s you “see the world through someone else’s eyes,” and it also allows you to broadcast to your faithful followers. However, how can you use this for your blog or business?
The #BloggersGetSocial podcast tackled this topic on our Periscope podcast, but other bloggers have other shared their tips and knowledge about the platform. Since video is my preferred method of getting my information out there, Periscope is high on my to do list. The best advice I have to those who are wondering how to get started is to just jump in! Broadcast before you’re ready. 😉 Once you do one, you’ll want to do a hundred. It’s a fast way to reach your readers and find a new audience. Come play on Periscope! If you want to know what to broadcast, visit one of these October challenges. Hop in, make friends, and use the hashtag.
