Overview of July Women Grow Business Twitter Chat with Amy Vernon

Great Time Had By All At Our Latest Chat for Women In Business

At Noon on July 9, 2012, like every second Monday each month, we had our community Twitter chat. And as usual, we were pleased and honored to have a guest expert with us. This time around, we were graced by the presence of Amy Vernon (@AmyVernon).

Amy, revered by many as a social media goddess (no, really!) has the gift of assembling audiences that are both large and responsive. Just ask the 67.000+ people currently following her Public updates on Facebook. She was kind enough to talk to us about Creating and Maintaining Genuine Connections in Social Media, an important key to having not only many followers, but getting them to take action on the information you share.

The comment that created the most responses during the chat was when Amy shared how she felt about automatically cross-posting content to multiple social networks. Here’s what she said:

  2. Follow our Twitter hashtag #wgbiz. (In Twitter you can use the search at the top of the screen, in Tweetchat or Tweetgrid, once you’re logged in, you’ll see an area for you to enter the hashtag at the top of the screen. In Tweetdeck, you can create a column that searches for that hashtag)
  3. Arrive as early as 11:45 a.m. to introduce yourself, send us a link to your site, and share your latest project, as well as to meet the other chatters.
  4. Make sure you’re following the host, in this case me (@wbgiz is the official channel, while @Tinu is my personal handle), and featured guest(s) if any (check the blog to see who the next guest is). This way, you can easily follow the conversation, send questions during the chat, or follow up  later.
  5. Have fun! :) Our twitter chats are meant to be educational, sure, but also lighter fare than a teleconference or webinar.
