- You should be comfortable in the basic operation of Periscope, and it will help if you have already done at least a few scopes.
- The following are nice-to-haves but not required: a tripod (small, tabletop style of tripod works great), an external mic (earbud mic that came with your phone will suffice, or a higher end mic that connects to your mobile device), and an external light source.
If you have been broadcasting in the live streaming app, Periscope, or if you are using Facebook Live to do live broadcasts, and are ready to amp up your use of these channels for sharing content and growing your following, you have found the right course. In this course, featured in the Udemy blog, experienced social media strategist, author, and online course creator, Vickie Maris, shares her experiences from years of using the channel to better connect with her followers and to grow her email list. Talking direct to the camera in the course videos, she shares insights from her experience of scoping at least once a day and often several times a day.
In her own broadcasting, she typically provides insights on leadership and digital content strategy, as well as social media tips for other broadcasters and content creators. On the weekend, she scopes from her farm - often with her llamas, rabbits or Connemara ponies on the broadcasts.
You will want to have a few broadcasts under you belt before you take this course. This isn't a step-by-step walk through of the process of downloading the Periscope app, or for clicking "Live" to livestream in Facebook. But if you're ready for over 20 videos (approximately 1 hour of content) full of tips, tools and techniques for improving the quality of your broadcasts with the goals of increasing your following and growing your email list, you've found the right course!

- This course is designed for Periscope broadcasters who have already downloaded the app to a mobile device and have done at least a few broadcasts. The tips in the course will help a broadcaster improve the quality of scopes and help amp up the level of professionalism. This is not a course for someone who hasn't yet downloaded the app and tried it out. An assumption is made that you're generally familiar with the settings and the operations of the app.
Welcome to the course, Periscope: How to Improve the Quality of Your Scopes & Grow Your Following
Join me for these next videos in which I'll share methods for improving the quality of your Periscope broadcasts.
When you conduct a broadcast, don't wait for people to join the scope. The latecomers have the option of coming back and watching the replay. If you delay, it makes it very awkward for the people who have already joined the scope or who are already watching on the web.
Including a "call to action" in your Periscope broadcasts is an important step for growing your following in Periscope and for driving followers to the places you would like for them to visit.
Consider use of simple tools like a whiteboard or index cards to share web addresses, Periscope handles and other information that will help your followers as well as help grow your following.
