Scoping with Your Tribe

Posted By: Randy GageJune 27, 2015

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Periscope, it’s a mobile app that allows you to broadcast live to your Twitter followers (who are also on Periscope) and also share the URL, so anyone else can watch you online.  (It’s actually owned by Twitter now and runs on their API.)   For people or brands who are tribe builders as most of us are, I believe this will be THE SINGLE MOST POWERFUL tool we will have to use for the next year or two.

For people who want to connect with their tribe, Periscope will be bigger and better than blogs, Facebook, YouTube or Twitter.  Nothing else will come close.  Reason:  It’s video, it allows interaction (people can comment, ask questions, give you hearts to show support) and most importantly, it is LIVE.   When that alert comes, it creates  sense of urgency that nothing else can match right now. The replays are only available for 24 hours, so there is still a sense of urgency there as well.  You see who is watching real-time and can view their comments and questions while you're broadcasting.

Like everything, the novelty will wear off and results will begin to fatigue at some point.  But for now, it’s about to blow up big time.  Real big.  Download it now in the app store.  It is linked to your Twitter handle.

If you want to see a demo of how I’m using it, follow me at @Randy_Gage and look for an alert.  I'm pretty enamored with the platform, so plan to experiment with it a lot all this week.

Jump on this quick.  Really.

  1. I like the idea real time video streaming Randy, but I like my content to stick around for more than 24 hrs thank you 🙂

  2. Thank you Randy for sharing on Periscope.  I'm so ready to have no need to check my email again.  Love that you are broadcasting on this platform.

  3. RG.. as you know this was developed in answer to the start up that created Meerkat, which is VERY popular now that it's been developed for Android as well. Meerkat has also taken a further step with development and has the ability to enable web streaming as well as on the phone. As a Transmedia Producer these tools are invaluable for audience immersion and interaction. Snapchat and Vine are also very cool platforms for visual social interaction and tribe building which we, in new media call Fan Base Building.. Good to see that as always you're keeping on top of your game

  4. As always the information you provide us are extremely valuable and appreciate them.  Thank you!

  5. Thanks RG,  I am on it because I believe it's all about real time and that's video.  Dr Eric I.

  6. I've been watching you on Periscope and love it! Thanks for doing it, you make my day 🙂 I really like the painting in your office that is behind you, what is the name of the artist?

  7. Randy_Gage BarbaraLinkenhokerSzenti Thanks Randy!  FYI...your daily periscoping has become so popular that's it's starting to get difficult to stream live with you. It often boots me off or if I try to comment, it tells me the broadcast is full. I guess that's a good thing for you but not so much for us who want to catch up with you real time. 🙂  I love your way of understanding, relating, and sharing!  I give you an infinity amount of  <3  's!

  8. BarbaraLinkenhokerSzenti Randy_Gage Yes I'm afraid I broke Periscope!  🙁  Whe it says you can't comment, if you log off and log back in a few times, it increases your chances to be able to comment.  -RG
