I definitely thought Twitter chats were as useless as Ikea instructions before I actually tried them, but heck I thought that about in Twitter in general years ago.
They seemed pointless, cluttered, and I thought tweets were too short to have a real conversation, especially around a complex topic like content marketing.
But my tone shifted when I really started engaging, because the people are why Twitter chats are amazing. A number of good friends have come out of participating in Twitter chats or hosting my own. I’ve even started a mastermind group with some connections made in Twitter chats.
Chat participants are usually the most engaged individuals on Twitter, unlike most of the blind, post it and leave it kinds of Twitter accounts.
To summarize quickly, a few of my favourite benefits of Twitter chats are:
- Networking of Course!
- Sharing Ideas and Getting Tips
- Building Expertise and Authority
- Expanding Your Reach on Twitter
If you’re not sure how to get more connected to the content marketing community online you have to dive into Twitter Chats. There are chats for topics ranging from community building, Twitter, social media, content strategy and much more on all different days of the week. And you can be sure they all have a good community of active, intelligent participants.
All right let’s go! Here is the current list of content marketing chats happening on Twitter weekly, in order of day and time. Pick a couple and get started!
