Intro to live streaming with periscope…

Periscope allows viewers to see live video of you and send hearts to the content that they enjoy viewing


After joining Periscope , the music-streaming service posted a behind-the-scenes video with Irish folk singer Conor O’Brien from the band Villagers.

During the live stream, 382 viewers tuned into the live stream, racking up 1,534 hearts—the equivalent of “liking” something on Facebook.

As of 6 p.m. last night, the video had been replayed 99 times and received 255 hearts.

Mountain Dew
The Pepsi-owned brand used the app on Thursday afternoon to create a short video titled “Stop by to say what’s up.”

The short clip showed a girl spelling out the word “Swag” on a chalkboard with a table full of branded T-shirts and hats in front of it.

Red Bull
The energy drink is almost always one of the first commercial entities to experiment with new social platforms, and Periscope is no exception.

Red Bull is testing out the social-video app during Miami Music Week this weekend. The brand will live stream events happening at its Red Bull Guest House. Social content will also be pushed out via Twitter and Snapchat.

DKNY’s social account gave viewers a look into its fashion closet on Thursday, shortly after announcing it had opened an account via Twitter.

Fashion brands already regularly employ Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to give folks a peek into its world, so it’s likely that fashion-minded marketers will embrace Periscope.

Advertisers are already joining periscope trying to capture the attention of the general public.

This is a new valuable tool for web designers to have their clients live stream about their products/ brands.
