They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. If that’s true, then a photo on Instagram is probably worth about 1,000 followers. Those followers can be quite powerful in helping to get messages out … and fast!
But the folks at fast-growing Twitter-owned Periscope think live-streaming video is just as influential. “A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video can take you someplace and show you around,” Periscope’s website says.
Instagram, with more than 400 million users – almost 80 million more than Twitter – helps maximize the power of pictures and video clips to build your brand. And for added impact, Periscope streams live so your followers can see and hear your message in real time.
Want to learn how to use these image-centric platforms? Attend IABC Fort Worth’s Lunch & Learn on March 22 as our student chapter leaders at Texas Wesleyan University provide a hands-on lesson in using Instagram and Periscope to support your brand.
