Q1: How has opening your life to live streaming affected your business?
A: I started broadcasting from the shop, then the factory, then the beach. I build my reputation as a silly old user and people love it! 60 people from all around the world have come to my store to meet me. I regard the 21,000 people who follow me as friends in my circle.
Q2: Which platform do you love most?
A: I love Periscope, Snapchat, and Instagram. I recently had half a million views on one Instagram video that took only 30 seconds to make!
Q3: What advice do you have for live streamers?
Be consistently present. If you have difficulty going live, face the camera away and just talk!
