What Is Periscope And What Is All The Fuss About?

Unless you have been on a cloud somewhere then you probably have heard a lot of people talking about Periscope lately.

Periscope is basically a new app that you can download to your smart phone and create live recordings using your smartphone while on the go.



People can not only watch your periscope broadcast live, but they can also follow you comment and like your livestream too.  The only thing about Periscope whether it is fortunate or unfortunate your stream is only live for the next 24 hours after that it disappears.

Depends what way you look at it on the positive side it means people need to rush to see your live stream or the recording or they miss it and it is gone forever.  This may make more people take action faster.


The downside of this is you cannot just do some work make a recording and get paid forever from that video like you would on your own videos.  Or videos that you upload to You Tube or any of the other video hosting networks.

As far as I am concerned I can definitely see the benefit of this for connecting with your audience.  And I do intend to maybe do a few of them in the next 30 days. 


Though I still believe it would be much better creating your own videos or webinars and uploading them as many places as possible.  As well as using Automated webinar software to monetise them over and over again. 🙂

The other good thing about Periscope is because I have nearly 85,000 Twitter followers it shouldn’t be too difficult getting people to my periscope events 🙂 


Of course I would also be interested to hear if you have used Periscope yet and if so what do you think about it?

All ideas and points appreciated
