Chris Ducker, Founder and Virtual CEO of Live2Sell Group, joins Social Pros to discuss how Periscope is changing the game of content creation by embracing and promoting the unadulterated world of live-streaming video.
The Allure of Raw Video
The evolution of social media professionals and the ability to schedule blogs/podcasts/tweets/etc. has created the opportunity for a high level of scripting in one’s social presence. While this makes for a safe and controlled front to an audience, it also removes what makes social media unique from other interactions… the feeling of personal connection and communication.
Enter stage right: Live-streaming apps such as Periscope.
For Chris Ducker, Periscope has opened up new avenues of consumer engagement. Not only has it livened up his preexisting audience, but it has brought in brand new clients for his Live2Sell businesses making its unadulterated, unfiltered conversations a very worthwhile risk.
But not just anybody can make an account and expect these positive results immediately. Chris shares his successful approach to Periscope—and entrepreneurship in general—that has resulted in an extremely prosperous professional and personal life.
