Periscope is one of the most recent and fastest growing social networks we believe it is because it gives anyone an audience where ever they are. Here are our top 5 tips to get the most out of the application.

1) Airplane mode

Make sure you put your phone in airplane mode or “Do not disturb”  before starting the broadcast. This is because incoming calls and messages can play havoc with your stream.

2) Promote, Promote, Promote!

Make the world aware when you are about to stream – almost schedule appointments with your audience and make them look forward to when you go live!

3) #UseHashtags

Hashtags are great as they drive people to content that relates, jump on the back of trending hashtags on Twitter to maximise your reach and add a few more that are relevant to your ‘scope’.

4) Hit Save!

Make sure you save the ‘scope’, it may come in handy to re-post later on through your community, or even better you can use it to help build more relationships with your community if it, for example, explains something that they might want the answer for.

5) Start talking straight away

There is no problem saving the ‘juicy’ parts to the end, but get talking right away. There is nothing worse than staring at a video while the presenter is just sitting there. Get chatting and interact with the audience, ask them questions and see if you can help!
