Up Periscope: We’re LIVE from Wichita

Posted by: Angie Prather on Wednesday, April 29, 2015
periscope The Chamber has been utilizing a new Twitter tool at several ribbon cutting events this month. Celebrating the accomplishments of the business community is at the core of what we do at the Chamber. We’re always seeking new ways to include more people in these noteworthy occasions when members open new businesses, provide tours of their new locations or expansions, and unveil their re-branded products and services. These events keep our membership informed about the latest local developments and help our members forge deeper connections with each other. Several new Twitter apps are now available that turn your iPhone into a tool for live streaming. Last Friday the Chamber tested Periscope at a re-branding ribbon-cutting/open house held by Chamber member Crave Beauty Academy. We used it again this week for the HopeNet groundbreaking. While Periscope is currently limited to iPhone users, we think it offers some interesting opportunities to expand the audience for member announcements and make our events more inclusive. We’re considering some ways to use this unique tool and would love your input about how we can utilize it to maximize your membership experience. Take a look at the list of future opportunities we’ve created below and send us your thoughts and tips to communications@wichitachamber.org.                 LIVE STREAMING OPPORTUNITIES:
  • ANNUAL SMALL BUSINESS AWARDS LUNCHEON    That dramatic moment when two 2015 award winners are named from our pool of nine finalists.
  • GOLF TOURNAMENT Special events throughout the day.
  • EXPOSURE (business-to-business trade show) New product demonstrations and explanations about new services.
Periscope eliminates all videos after 24 hours.  However, we’ve uploaded both of our Periscope videos to our YouTube channel. You can see the Crave event by following this link and the HopeNet event here. Periscope only utilizes a portrait function at this time, so both videos are shot and viewed in a vertical format. We’ll be sure to tweet prior to any other events we live stream. Be sure to follow us on Twitter @VentureBoldly for updates and let us know how you’re utilizing this new social media tool. Here are links to several articles that we’ve found helpful about the two new live streaming apps. http://ontheballmarketing.com/10-things-need-know-new-app-periscope/ http://sproutsocial.com/insights/live-streaming-apps/
