But there may be a silver lining. When a new social media platform arrives on the scene offering some great side benefits, like growing your audience, it’s definitely one you need to pay attention to. That’s why we’re talking about Tips for Using Periscope to Grow Your Audience with Rachael Hutchings. Read (and listen) on to learn more!

Tips for Using Periscope to Grow Your Audience

I’ve done a scope (slang for a Periscope broadcast) now too. And you know what? It was a lot of fun. There’s something about the interactive nature of this platform that’s very fulfilling.

The thing that I love about Periscope is the number [in your audience] really doesn’t matter. If you can get one person in on that scope, that is one person you’re interacting with and it’s kind of like a ripple in a pond. If they like you, they’re going to come back and you’re going to continue to have that interaction. It can be a real quality interaction. — Rachael Hutchings

Rachael talks about how she created her blog, La Fuji Mama, and her preoccupation with bento boxes and Japanese cooking of all kinds. She decided to start using Periscope as a way to talk about this and she received great response.

I’ve been amazed at how supportive the Periscope community is. I have seen immediate results of those scopes in other channels, which is really rewarding! — Rachael Hutchings

If you’re intrigued by Periscope, you’ll definitely want to listen to Rachael sharing her tips for how she’s been using Periscope and the positive benefits she’s experienced as a result.
