What is Periscope?

Okay – so I am such a loving and giving person I just HAVE to share with you my latest obsession…PERISCOPE! I introduced it to you in my From MiPhone to Yours post and shared how great and fabulous it was, but I’m not quite sure that I was AS obsessed with it then as I am now.

 

Periscope is a very new – I’d say it’s still in the walking stage since its debut in March 2015 – live streaming platform, which provides an incredible stage for teaching and learning. You can teach and learn about beauty, how to run a business, social media, marketing, blogging, technology, cooking; you can find a virtual prayer partner, workout partner or a planner buddy; and you can inspire, motivate, and encourage others to be their best, do their best and be of value to others. As with everything, people have found ways to monetize Periscope, so it has also become a mecca for selling self-help, mentoring and coaching services.

5 Top Tips for Starting Your Broadcast Like a Pro on Periscope (#PeriNewbies)

Your first broadcast on Periscope can seem pretty scary, but these tips will help you get started and be confident straight out of the gate! First things first, you must follow me 😃.

Can we just take a moment…let’s take a moment to thank all app developers EVERYWHERE! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, developers! For creating millions of fun, interesting, useful, practical, productive, and time-sucking applications to keep us connected and entertained….every second…of every day. 😬 These applications are so engaging they keep us completely captivated hurriedly seeking the “$10 Off” or BOGO coupons as we stand in line at the grocery store, wait around for our friends as they shamelessly squeeze themselves into that “hoe-ish” little black dress you wished they would’ve put back on the rack, and (from time-to-time) keeps us unwittingly holding up the line for devoted Starbucks addicts.

These are 10 of my most favorite applications (of the 147 I currently have loaded on my iPhone😏). Some are fantastic time-wasters, while others actually make you feel more productive. If you don’t have any of these yet, I hope you’ll give them a try!
