You hone in on your messaging and what is important to you and your brand.  You learn the various ways you can share it and how it resonates with your audience. You get instant feedback on whether people like it or not. It is also a great place to do message testing. If you don’t know what to scope play around with it! This is a new social network and EVERYONE is learning. Get in there and get messy.

2.Up Your Close Rate

The currency of Periscope is hearts. How this makes you a better business owner is that you have to ask for them! Just like asking for the sale you have to ask your viewers to Share your scope and “heart” what you are saying. If you have difficulty in asking for money practice by asking for hearts. It will make a difference in how you interact with potential clients.
