MBP #22: Ashley Jacobs, How to Throw a Successful #Trending Twitter Party
Wise Bread is extremely active in the personal finance blogging community and the cornerstone of that outreach strategy has been Ashley Jacobs. She joined the Wise Bread team in 2011 as a community coordinator and her role has expanded over the years, to include all of Wise Bread’s social media efforts.
One of the most visible, and successful, social media efforts she leads are Wise Bread’s weekly Tweetchats. This episode dives deep into these Tweetchats (some people call them Twitter parties) and hits on everything from how to get one off the ground, how to measure your progress, how to get people to attend, how to find sponsors, and what you can do after the Tweetchat to create unique content from the chat itself.
For those who like stats, 92% of Wise Bread’s sponsored Tweetchats make the trending list. That’s impressive.
It’s a great discussion from someone who has done a lot of Twitter parties over the years.
