Periscope Top Tips
If possible, claim the same Periscope handle as your Twitter handle
Periscope gives you the option to choose an @Name for your new account. Once you choose it, there is no way (currently) to change it. If possible, try to choose the same handle as your Twitter account. This will mean people can find you a lot easier on both platforms, and makes life easy for you when trying to tell others how to follow you.
Sort out your bio’s
Part 1: Your Periscope bio is you chance to sell yourself to potential new followers. Make sure that it is concise, accurate and appealing. Sell yourself in 3 lines! BUT IMPORTANTLY: Remember that your bio is searchable. Any words you use in the bio can be search for by others. Make sure you therefore include key words about you, IE Job title, location, broadcast topics etc.
Part 2: TELL PEOPLE WHERE TO FIND YOU ON PERISCOPE! Update all your other social media bio’s right now and add the words “Follow me on Periscope: @XXXX”.
Bonus: Try to keep your profile pictures the same across your social platforms, it helps people to identify you across the various social media platforms.
Pre-Promote your Periscopes
Tweet about your Periscope before you guy live. Let your Twitter followers know exclusively 15 minutes before you’re about to go live exactly what your show will be about and then drive them to follow you on Periscope to see it. Not only will this drive people on Twitter to the go and watch your broadcast / follow on Periscope, but it will also drive people on Periscope to follow you on Twitter, so that they too can be part of that exclusive pre show info.
Bonus: Try to design an image to accompany your tweet. Tweets with images on average get 5x more engagement and are 35% more likely to get retweeted.
