Periscope is one of the fastest growing social media platforms in the world right now with over 10 million users registered since it began in March of 2015. (source) Periscope is a live streaming app that uses your smartphone to broadcast video real time to your followers and anyone else who wants to join in. Periscope is directly connected to your Twitter account, so every time you go live, your twitter account is updated with a link for viewers to join in! On Periscope, you can connect with your followers, read and respond to comments in real time, and get Periscope “love” (hearts) when your viewers tap the screen. With Periscope your broadcast – also called a “Scope” – is only viewable for 24 hours, which gives an incredible “sense of urgency” for your followers to tune in or watch the replay! Here are some ways to maximize this unique platform to help your direct sales business – and be sure to join PartyPlanDivas for our to help practice your Periscope skills!
