You finally did it! You’re on Periscope but you don’t know where to start, how to connect, or what people to follow. This is where Periscope communities come in. Periscope communities are great to join to give you support and accomplish a goal. There are a lot of communities on periscope and I have compiled this information so you can make an informed decision on which community best fits your needs and how to join them. If you see communities I missed please let me know by a quick tweet or email and I’ll add them to the list. I will continually update this as new communities are created everyday!
Before we jump into the good stuff I want to give you some ground rules to make your Periscope community activities are fruitful.
1.Don’t join ALL the communities. This is about building relationships. Choose 2 Periscope communities that you can really be involved in. Remember you are running a business and you have other things you have to do. 2 Periscope communities will be enough to reap the benefits without driving yourself crazy.
2. There are an infinite amount of hearts. The hearts you can give don’t run out. So share freely. If it resonates give it hearts. If you want to show support give hearts.
3. Comment. This is a two way street. And while the broadcaster can’t see you they would love to read what you have to say. Commenting not only introduces yourself to the braodcaster but also to the audience that is watching along with you.
Another great way to understand these communities is search their hashtag on twitter and look at the kinds of people that are participating!
