Yes I know there has been quite a few glitches and that it is quite frustrating as a new user to this platform. But you have to understand this platform is brand new and still in Beta. The same glitches are happening with the new Text Book Tool on Amazon. Same thing, but I am still using that tool to stay ahead of the game.
Here is how you can leverage it while they are ironing out the bugs:
Make sure you strategically use your profile description to promote your business and expertise.
Try and get FREE exposure by jumping on other high profile Blabs
Approach well known Blabbers and see if you can interview them or do a blab.
Record your blab for more FREE PR for your brand
Do a blab at least twice per week to keep you profile in the stream
Use hashtags in your Blab titles
Get free plugs from @teamblab as they promote their blabbers
Keep up to date with the updates because new features are launching daily.
Try and cross promote if you are on Periscope and other social media platforms to get a following on Blab.
Be patient every social media platform starts with training wheels
It is a new live stream communications platform similar to Periscope but better.
Here is why I like Blab better than Periscope and why you should jump on too:
You do not have to have an apple device or mobile device to be able to use it, you can Blab directly from your computer;
You can pre-schedule in advance when you want to do a blab;
It records the blab [by choice] and sends you an email of your video, plus audio, plus embed code to post to your blog or website.
They promote you on their home page [which is getting HUGE traffic at the moment]
It is tied to your Twitter account and they promote it directly to your stream to let people know you are live.
People can subscribe and follow you before you even run your live stream.
You can speak to up to 4 people at once and invite people in and out of the chat.
More features are being added daily
An app for mobile users is being launched shortly
You can record in Landscape which is perfect for video and social media sharing [portrait sucks].
It does not chew up your phone like Periscope does.
You can record up to 6 hours if you want to [I recommend 15-30 mins max unless you are teaching something].
Why I am excited…
Because it is still in Beta,so if you missed the boat with Periscope it is once again a level playing field for you to lead on this new platform. Lots of people [serious leaders and marketers] are jumping ship and moving from Periscope to Blab because it is more business focused which I love.
Lots of new marketing strategies coming into my head already including
The potential is limitless.
Go and check it out and have a go it is fun and super easy to use.
