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.
