6 Ways to Market Your Business with Periscope & Meerkat

Two of the newest and hottest social media platforms that recently hit the stage are Periscope and Meerkat. They are amazing video streaming tools that allow you to broadcast live facetimes to all your social media followers and/or to all the people in a given area. What’s cool about these platforms is that they are not only brand new and wide open for business, but they’re also the first of their kind. No other platform allows you get this personal with your audience.

I’d like to share with you 6 ways that I am experimenting with marketing my business on Periscope…

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.

3. Live focus groups

These platforms can also be a great place to collect data and information about your customers. Invite your followers to jump on and share their opinion and experience on certain things regarding your products, services, or that of other people in your industry.

Ask them to tell you what they do like, what they don’t like, and how they feel it could be improved. This is an easy, free and casual way to collect very valuable data on your market.

5. Announce flash sales

Having a flash sale for the next 24 hours? Announce it on Periscope and Meerkat! People don’t pay attention to tweets and status updates much anymore but they are more than willing to hop on a video call to listen in to what you have to say. These can be great platforms to get the word out in an authentic, personal way.

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!

How are YOU using Periscope and Meerkat to market YOUR business??

    Great ideas! I have done a few experiments with meerkat but have had trouble with my system crashing too much. I wonder how many others have had problems with this? My next try will be Periscope. I hope this one will perform better because the small experiment with meerkat seemed to have great results despite my difficulty with the platform!

    Always interesting with new social media tools. How do one use these during the time when you are building up your following but still do not have a large following?
