For those of you seeking to find some new ways to help market your brand and network within your industry, here’s some advice: join a Twitter chat.
Not only do you get to rub elbows with others in the industry, you get access to valuable information to help with all your social media and marketing needs. We can’t even begin to count how many times we’ve joined a chat and learned something new! These chats are typically led by influencers within the market, you know, the people that really know what they’re talking about.
What we love most about these communities is that they are set up to help connect you with other like-minded individuals. Other chatters are encouraging, helpful and polite. Twitter chats provide confidence - they can show how much you actually do know - and what you need to focus on. We are forever students, and because social media is always changing, it’s really nice to have a place where influencers are available to ask for some help.
How do you get started? Just hop on during the chat and use the attached chat hashtag to respond. Yes, it’s that easy!
