Twitter Hosting a Tweetup
What's a Tweetup?
One of the best ways to engage with your Twitter audience is to host a Tweetup. Similar to a networking event or a meet and greet, Tweetups can be both planned or spontaneous.
Pick A Date & Venue.
OK, this is no different than any other event—you need a place and a time. If your business has a physical location such as a restaurant or a coffee shop, you might even want to hold your event there so people can get to know your business through the event. But don’t worry if you can’t host at your place of business—any public location will do.
Promote Your Event.
Some Tweetups are scheduled months in advance, some happen on a regular schedule, and others are impromptu events organized in a matter of days or hours.
Use social media to get the promotion going—post an event listing on Facebook, send out Tweets, and encourage your followers and attendees to send out tweets. Don’t be afraid to use other marketing tools, like email or signs, to promote your event.
Don’t Forget To Tag It. One of the best things about Twitter is the ability to create hashtags to group events and ideas together. Your attendees and followers will appreciate this both before … and after the event.
