Today I want to address the issue of using live streaming apps to help enhance your marketing and grow your business. I know that there are many early adopters out there who are already very familiar with using live stream, but this is something that is relatively new to me and something I have not yet tried out. However, recognizing that this tool has many advantages, I have taken some time this week to do some research to learn about this technology and how it works.
From my research, it appears as though there are two main contenders in the live streaming field at this point; Meerkat and Periscope. Both have pros and cons and share many characteristics, but it seems as though Periscope is winning the war. This is likely because periscope is owned by Twitter. Because Periscope is gaining ground, it is the application I will be trying out in the future, so therefore, is the focus of this article.
