Title: Twitter Chat Up Your Podcast
Are you familiar with Twitter chats? Have you participated in one before? How can they help you with build and engage your podcast audience?
The #HRSocialHour Half Hour Podcast developed out of a monthly Twitter chat. Participants in the chat became listeners to the show and new people continue to discover them both. In this session, we’ll discuss the mechanics of a Twitter chat, how to set one up, and the ongoing marketing that can nurture its success. We’ll also talk about ideas in tying your podcast and chat directly together to build your audience even more. Be sure to bring a notebook or your mobile device for notes, if you don’t have a Twitter account, consider creating one as we’ll have a short chat on Saturday to help apply what’s shared in the session Friday.
