I had my inaugural voyage into Blab this morning and I loved it (and you can see the replay above)! I see so many uses for this great video/twitter live stream tool in building Fiercely Loyal Communities. It’s been a long time since a newfangled social media tool caught my attention like this. Here are the things I like about it:
- It is a no-brainer for audience members to join a Blab. They don’t have to be in the right place at the right time, or wait to be approved or, good forbid, download and install anything. They just click on the link and BAM, they are there.
- It has a great way to make audience members the star. Blab lets you bring people from the audience onto the video screen. This is great for letting them ask a question, share an insight, or talk about what is or isn’t working.
- You automatically get a super easy to link to the recording. You don’t have to go find it or create it. It’s just there. Which is great because you can share it with community members who weren’t there and nudge them to be on the next live Blab.
I’m going to experiment with using Blab for Fierce Loyalty chats in the coming weeks. If you want to make sure you are in the loop on that, subscribe to the Field Report in the upper right-hand corner to get on the list.
P.S. Many thanks to Samantha Lake with Epicomm for teaching me how to use Blab!
