I thought I would try Twitters new live video platform Periscope.


I THOUGHT I was doing a 10 minute video tour of a new listing. But when I was switching the camera from rear facing to front facing I actually turned it OFF! I left the house before checking the "Scope" as they are called.


When I got back to the office I went to check out the video and it was only 5 seconds long. I was a bit upset until I saw that I had gotten 57 new follower. And lots more since.


The crowd, 15 million strong already, on Periscope is obviously hungry for stuff to watch. I decided to see what kind of trainng I could find on how to leverage the platform and be one of those people who builds an early and LARGE following while it's still new.


One of the few things I found was this course by Kim Garst. She has hundreds of thousands of follower on the various social media sites and does a great job in the course teaching how to use this new platform!


I thought I would share it with you "Rainers". I hope you find it helpful!

Frank - that is a good repost.  They say that some of the greatest inventions are by accident.

Great post!  Thanks for the reblog, I missed this one the first time around.  Periscope is interesting for sure.  I need to get the basics of the main sites down first though.  :)
