This week’s guest should be a familiar face: Chris Ducker is back, and he wants to tell you about all things Periscope.

I’ve known Chris for quite a while. I know that he’s very, very strict with how he spends his time. So when I saw Chris spending time on the platform, I knew I had to investigate. What I found was a fun, intuitive, and addicting platform for connecting with your audience in an ultra-personal way.

Having learned from the pitfalls of earlier livestreaming applications, Periscope offers a whole new frontier for interacting with your community, personalizing your online presence, and exposing new fans to your business. As an early adopter of Periscope, Chris has gathered some excellent tips and insights about how to get the most out of this platform.

If you have a following of any kind, you’ll want to hear his hot take on what could be the next big thing in online media.
