Traffic Exchange Live is a funny little gig…
Way back in 2009, Tim and I stumbled across uStream and had this crazy idea to show up everyday, hang out with traffic exchange surfers and talk shop live on video. And boy has it been an adventure…
We’ve held 106 hour marathons, live fund raising for Traffic Exchanges Care, countless interviews with industry leaders and hung out with the best people in the business every weekday!
It’s no secret though….Finding the perfect ‘platform’ to host our live shows has been…A struggle.
We started on uStream and it fell out of favor soon after. We’ve tried the old Hot Conference rooms, got completely frustrated with Google Hangouts, we’ve also been in Vokle, StreamUp, a few others that will remain nameless and for the past few years, been hosted at Spreecast.
Yet none of these services, have really fit us like a glove…Until now.
Yesterday, Ernie Pinard drops me a line on Skype and tells me about ‘Meerkat and Periscope on Steroids‘…Obviously that got my attention real quick. So I clicked the link…
It’s seamless integration with Twitter, it’s flawless chat, it’s crystal clear video and so far, we haven’t had any issues with lag. No one has told us they have had issues connecting to the shows and it’s VERY mobile friendly. It just works!
Not to say they won’t have growing pains because you know what….
Here’s the best part….It’s brand new!
Why is this important? Without getting into too much boring content, becoming an early adopter of programs like this is a great business plan to build your brand OUTSIDE of where you are already known. So I’m going 10000000% into Blab and have been really pushing this network for everyone in the Traffic Exchange Live community.
Eye balls will be watching! People will be asking about traffic exchanges! They will be looking at us again…With inquiring minds.
Let’s go make an awesome first impression!!!!
Be sure to follow me on Blab and hang out today at Traffic Exchange Live (4pm Eastern)
