Periscope 101: "Katch Me" on This New Social Media Platform!


Are you guys on Periscope yet? Its (finally) officially the wedding offseason and RIGHT in the middle of one of my busiest stretches, I discovered this great app. Its a great tool to display your art, get a message/announcement out to small business owners and just have fun with your peers!
Step 1.
Download the app
Step 2.
Log in with your Twitter handle (make sure you are happy with your handle because I'm STILL trying to get my Periscope handle changed from @CTDESIGNSINC to @CalligraphybyCT (it apparently takes a while because you have to go through Periscope's help dept. which is right now still a pretty small team).
Step 3.
Add a profile description and start following some of your peers!
Step 4.
I know its scary, but go ahead and get your FIRST live broadcast out of the way! My first broadcast just had me introducing myself and showing some of my work, seriously, it was so simple. Make SURE you check your twitter icon on the broadcast interface... Your broadcast will be automatically tweeted to your followers.
Step 5.
Go to and follow the prompts so you can archive your broadcasts/streams (if you choose to). Note, you can also set your broadcasts to autosave to your android or ios device as well. You can periscope from either a phone or a tablet.

Thanks for reading this Periscope "primer" and I hope to see you guys out there soon!
