1. Q & A Sessions

Meerkat and Periscope are amazing for opening yourself up to questions. Simply go live on the air; all your social followers will have the opportunity to come check you out live and you can then have them ask any question they’ve been dying to ask. Your audience probably has some professional and goofy questions they are curious about, so be open to anything.

Really go into these sessions with a giving attitude, be prepared to offer as much value as possible without “selling”, and open up personally at times.

2. Live tutorials

Whatever it is that your business does, you can use these 2 platforms to demonstrate live how to do a particular activity within’ that field of interest. People will appreciate an expert showing them how to [crack eggs the proper way, build a website with wordpress, prepare for a live presentation, tie a shoe, etc].

Don’t under estimate the value of simple tutorials. Many times people simply need a refresher and having an expert come on to reinforce the importance of certain skills can be very helpful.

Having a flash sale for the next 24 hours? Announce it on Periscope and Meerkat!

6. Take your audience behind the scenes

Give your audience behind the scenes tours of your office! People are often curious as to what your business is all about and what goes into to creating your amazing products and services. Get personal and show them the set up. Introduce them to team members, show them the work stations, the break rooms, etc. Even if you work from home, you can still show them the home set up and how and where all your work gets done.

Get personal, that’s what these platforms are all about!

    I’m still struggling with how to market using the new kids on the block (periscope, meerkat, snapchat). When you don’t have a massive follower base (which we don’t) it feels like I’d just be talking to myself most of the time.

    Also, I’ll need to figure out how to point my phone at the appropriate objects whilst doing a code workshop.

    Great post, Alex! I haven’t used Periscope or Meerkat yet but you have certainly proven their value in this article!

    Since you have mentioned basic fundamentals of business and how these platforms can be used to enhance these experiences for current and potential clients, it only seems logical to check them out. Answering questions, conducting surveys or focus groups, and providing useful information via webinars or tutorials are all integral parts of creating a business that sells what people want and/or need and doing so is essential to business growth.

    Having live product demonstrations, flash sales, and taking your audience behind the scenes are great ways to make your audience feel special and show them that you care about them. It also helps them to get to know and trust you.

    I would like to add that because of the uses you’ve listed here, it seems like these platforms might also be a good way to set up impromptu meetings with clients. Of course, given that I haven’t used them myself, I am only speculating. What are your thoughts on this?

    Thank you for providing this useful information, I look forward to sharing!

    Sincerely,

    Andrea

      Yes I do because it allows you to speak to your audience and not be interrupted by lots of other faces. Just you, and all your fans watching. Great new tool!

    Our team has been using Periscope and has had a lot of fun with it. From behind-the-scenes, to educational live-broadcasts, we try to find really interactive subjects to cover. Viewers tune in from all over the world. Having great content is the key but, that could be said for any part of marketing or branding. Once you understand how Periscope/Meerkat work, you’ll be sure to find a great way for it to work with your business.
