Once a month EMomNow Calgary and EMomNow Edmonton join forces to create an Alberta wide twitter chats for Entrepreneurial Moms!
They start at 9pm mst so you have time to get your kids to bed and log in to your computer and join us for an hour long informative chat about matters that relate to your business with women in the same spot as you.
How to join a twitter chat
How to join? Simply log in to twitter (create a free account at twitter.com) and in the search icon, enter in the hashtag #emomnowab.
Once you’ve done that, you can see all the tweets around our topic.
There are easier ways to join a chat through apps like Nurph and TweetChat that we highly recommend. The benefit of these websites are that you can easily follow through the feed of the twitter chat easily all on one page, and thus making it hard for you to miss a message.
Another benefit is the use of the hashtag. When participating in a twitter chat, it’s important to include the hashtag (in our case #emomnowab) so that other members of the group can see your tweets in the conversation and can respond to you. Using a website like Nurph or TweetChat, the app automatically adds the hashtag for you, so you don’t have to worry about remembering to add it in. Makes it a LOT easier!
Why participate in a tweet chat?
There are several reasons why you should participate in a tweet chat, or twitter party. The main one being exposure. Twitter chats encourage conversation, so even if you’re still not 100% sure how to use twitter, by participating the host (that’s us at EMomNow) give you some questions about a certain topic and allow you to answer them, or even listen in to what others are saying. If a certain tweet appeals to you feel free to pop in and let everyone know. Responses can be easy like, “I agree” or “how do you implement that” to really casual conversations. By talking with people on twitter you’re gaining new awareness to you and your brand.
Another reason to join in? Learning!! Each month when we hold twitter chats we encourage people to come together and share their experiences on a number of topics. Either you can share your expertise or, learn from others sharing theirs.
Our next Twitter Chat is Tuesday December 16th at 9pm (mst) and we’re going to be talking about strategic planning for the new year.
Hope to see you online!
