Tweetchats – the Entrepreneur’s best hangout

Good things come...

This is my desktop background. It’s also true. And you Entrepreneurs are king with this concept!

Where can you find other hardworking successful people to learn from?
Tweetchats.

I participate in a few Tweetchats as time will allow, and I just wish I had more time for many more of them. I am SO energized when they are over.

How does so much energy flow in 140 character tweets? You’d be surprised. The need to condense thoughts has more impact on the information flow.

Tweetchat participants are frequently entrepreneurs, or just passionate about what they do. The energy literally jumps through your screen at you as you follow the tweets. I have learned a lot from them and have also been happy to share my knowledge on them. It’s a bit like finding dozens of mentors all in one place! A Mastermind group of sorts.

And if you’ve heard the buzz on the rise ofย Twitter popularity, Tweetchats are probably at the core of it. These chatters are having a ball at what they do and are more than happy to share their good business sense with you. Everyone benefits.

If you think you have an idea, find a tweetchat on the topic or business and start lurking to see what goes on at ground level, what bumps are in the road, and some great tips on how to avoid pitfalls.

If you’ve thought about it as a business or hobby, there is most likely a tweetchat about it. There are frequently guest experts who answer your questions and a moderator keeps everything running smoothly.

In addition, you gain followers who share your interests, you get to know some of them on a more personal level, and that often leads to more in-depth offsite conversations.

One more BIG plus: You become known as an expert in your field. Your knowledge is shown through your participation in the chat. People learn that you know your stuff and you can gain business connections through them. This is far better than advertising.

In fact, one of the main concepts often missed by those business people who don’t understand social media, is that there are few places where you can “show your wares” to so many at one time. Your expertise is what people seek, more so than your product!

So tweetchats, and all social media avenues, are a great hangout for experts in the field and those who would learn from them. Are you getting this now?

Use tweetchats as just one of many sources for searching your business topic and having access to experts.

What business torch is waiting to be lit within you NOW? Find a tweetchat and learn from the experts – you can just lurk for a few before jumping in. You’ll be addicted soon.

If you would me to send you a link for a constantly updated spreadsheet schedule of tweetchats, just let me know!

    Hania,

    This is a terrific article! You’ve done well giving facts about Tweetchats, their value, and giving newbies the confidence to jump in.

    I so enjoy them, and try to make as many as I can — Even for just a bit — each week. A great place to meet experts, but also a place to establish yourself as one, as you suggest.

    See you at the tweet chats!!

    Hi Hania, I love your desktop background… ha ha so true. Great post. All the points you mentioned are valid. I have met so many wonderful connections through participating in Tweetchats, not to mention increased my reach, brand awareness and brand loyalty. I added further comment on my Meddle page http://bit.ly/17dM0Xn

    I am surprised more business owners don’t host their own chats. I suppose time is a huge barrier, for many. Do you ever think you would host a chat session?
