Here’s Why You and Everyone You Know Should Be on Periscope

Here's Why You And Everyone You Know Should Be On Periscope - The Coffeelicious - Medium

Periscope is a platform that allows content creators to gain instant feedback from their audience. You won’t get that on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook. You are able to interact with your audience and answer their questions during the broadcast. As you begin to gain a following you’ll start seeing familiar faces and they kind of become like friends.

 

I am a big fan of this new app and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Periscope. Will it change the journalism industry? Who knows. What I do know is that every content creator, salesman, inventor, techie, artist, musician, and business person should be on this app....

Are you on Periscope yet?  According to this article - you should be!

 

(From the article): Periscope is a very new app and definitely has bugs and kinks to work out, but we can already see the potential for this new platform. Live streaming takes engagement to a whole new level for marketing. People want to follow people, now they can.

Marco Favero's curator insight, April 11, 10:28 AM

Jessica Hagman's curator insight, May 13, 4:36 PM
