It was a lot of fun last week when I did the weekly show live as promised on Periscope, Twitter’s live video streaming platform.  I had just under 100 people take the time to turn up so thanks to all those that did. We had a few issues but I ran some more tests today and it seems that the bug that was affecting people chatting is no longer there. So we had about 10 -15 mins of mucking about talking to everyone and then I recorded the weekly show warts and all. At the time I thought there was only 26 people watching but there were another 70 watching via the web which I did not realise.

Is live streaming worth it?

These been a bit of talk about this week with a blog post from Chris Brogan. I first met Chris at a conference we spoke at together back in 2009 in NZ. In Chris’ latest post about periscope . He says it is the least interesting thing he’s seen. Now I know that he’s trying to make a point but I think that takes it a bit far. As I said to some mates the other day we’re living in the age of the narcissist, so personal live streaming is going to be huge. The main point I took away from Chris’ post was that he saw no value to his client base by doing live streaming. Fair enough. I do see tremendous value though. I’ve been watching Darren Rowse and a bunch of other people on periscope and now Meerkat (another competitor) and some of the content is wonderful. I was just watching some live open mic sessions from a comedy club in Canada, Darren Rowse answers bloggers questions live.. and then of course there is a lot of dross. Like the 4 drunk blokes at a Wollongong pub. What some may describe as the “me’ generation talking about themselves and what they’re doing. Who cares right? Who cares what you’re doing right now. Hang on. Isn’t that what we said about Twitter and Facebook when they first started?

Now Facebook has also launched a live personal streaming product. Like getting on board with those other platforms in the early days, I sense there are some major benefits for people who are comfortable speaking directly to a live audience can benefit from .

  1. Having a live conversation and getting to know your audience.
  2. For me getting live feedback about SEO issues I’m talking about in the show.
  3. Authority, Authority, Authority which video has always delivered.
  4. Broadcast once publish everywhere. My goal is to create a great live experience show about digital marketing and publish that on youtube, podcast etc. There will be no duplicate content issues because it’s video!

Broadcast On All Platforms.

I first started video streaming in 1999. My server license cost me $10,000. Then there was camera gear, staff, bandwidth costs etc. Now I can do it all from my phone?! That’s insane. Crazy good.

This morning I broadcasted live on both Periscope & Meerkat as a test. The audience on Periscope was far more active. I believe that is because I simply have more followers on Periscope. My challenge is to get a bigger audience on Meerkat by next Tuesday when I record the show and go live on both platforms.  If you are on either platform I’d love it if you could follow Jimboot there. I’ll let you know when I get access to the Facebook Live platform. EDIT: If you could like my new Facebook page as I need to be verified to use the new Facebook Live

What would you watch?

I’d love to know from you, what are you watching on these platforms? What do you find valuable? Who should I be following? Thanks.
