Five Tips On Preparing Periscope Interviews

  1. Build your audience ahead of time by promoting your interview. Let your audience know when the interview will be broadcast live and what they should expect.
  2. Make sure you have the most essential equipment in addition to your mobile phone:  Microphone & Tripod.  The microphone will help eliminate background noise and the tripod will keep the live broadcast steady.
  3. Prepare your Periscope titles and questions in advance.  Don’t forget to include any hashtags and/or links.
  4. Make it short 5-10 min. in length.
  5. Interact with your audience if possible, answer questions from Periscope audience.
