It’s finally here! The ultimate, and i mean ULTIMATE list of twitter chats for bloggers and business owners. Fellow blogger Nicole aka Mrs Jeeby at Mrs Jeeby’s Survival Kit have joined forces to give you this extensive list, as well as some free printables and a downloadable calendar.
I’m hoping if you’re reading this post you’ll at least know what a twitter chat is and how it works?! But i just want to remind you why they’re such a great way to engage and network your blog and/or business. Each twitter chat is designed to gather people with the same interest to the same place at one time, most chats have a Q&A style interaction or a general topic to discuss, from personal goals to building a community on instagram, to bloggers of colour around the world. There is something for everyone and is such a fantastic way to not only boost your followers across social media (especially with link sharing) but to gain new insights, learn from the experts and gain some new friends and fans of what you do.
Every chat that i take part in i gain a handful of new followers, and seeing as there is at least 2 chats on every single day of the week, you can see how becoming present and getting involved with these will dramatically grow your following. Whether you want to attract more people to your amazing business or want more people to be drawn to your blog, it’s really a no brainer to be utilising these chats. Before I launch straight in with the extremely long list I just want to share a few tips on getting the most out of the Twitter chats:
- Firstly, you really need to be ENGAGING, you’ve got one hour (usually) in a chat to make as many new online friends as possible! So tweet people your honest thoughts, opinions, emojis and gifs, get your personality across and really try and add value to the chat. If you can’t bring value then show support and thank people for their advice, ask questions and for feedback and always end on a positive note.
- Second of all: BE CONSISTENT! I’ve made the list really easy for you to be able to see when each chat takes place and pick and chose which one you’d like to take part in but the key is to do at LEAST one a week, bare minimum! There’s more than 2 taking place every single day so block in just one hour a week to take part and if that’s really all you can do, schedule tweets in to go live during the Twitter hours that are most relevant to your brand/blog/business so at least you’re getting seen in the right places
- Thirdly and most importantly: Don’t dump your link and run expecting followers to come flocking (grr, this is such a pet hate of mine!). Yes self promotion is necessary and an important part but if people are leaving you their links or if you’re happy to promote yourself, be decent enough to go and have a look at other peoples hard work. I’ve made a point lately of going back through my notifications after the end of a chat and commenting on every persons blog who has left me their link and followed them up with a tweet. Not only is getting your link out there going to improve your SEO, but by tweeting them telling them what you think they’ll be reminded to go and check you out too! Ever heard, what goes around comes around?
Go and catch my tweets HERE if you want to see how it’s done!
Right, now with those points out the way, here is pretty much every relevant and current twitter chat that you need to know about. These are all listed in UK time so please bare that in mind!
