Live Blog! Leveraging Social Media with Beth Kanter

Back from lunch. One of the great things about this workshop is how much, and how often, participants are given the chance and encouraged to talk with each other. This workshop isn't a lecture, it is interactive in the pure sense of the word.

Experiments to do after you leave:


Twitter, how to use it effectively for the arts.

What is Twitter? Social Media for people to talk in 140 or less characters.
Why Twitter? Information/Insight, Marketing, Data Mining, Social Circles, Connections

Examples: Use it for getting contacts for programing participants. Urgent promotions (like ticketing deals.) Twitter feeds operates as a news feed (a source of content) on the website.

Who uses Twitter? The average user tweets once in 72 days. Most people have 25 or fewer followers.

How do people Tweet? Desk top or mobile phones. Amazing growth in people using it through smart phones.

How to use it?
1. As a focus group. (Example is the Smithsonian and what people say about it...very funny!)
2. Live notes during an event
3. Customer service.
4. Starting conversations about the development of new work. (#2amt)
5. Tweetups!
6. Spreading buzz. (Example is the Monterey Bay sending out a message and following it to all the people who have sent it out...and encouraging media to send out again and again.)

The main point is that aBlogtoWatch both hublot replica advocates for and attempts to present itself with full transparency – that funny little topic I mentioned earlier which omega replica the luxury industry is really not very comfortable with. On aBlogtoWatch, advertising is pretty transparent, and we make it clear what is and isn't advertising. And yet, people still replica watches sale sometimes make odd comments that illustrate a belief they have that someone is paying us to say something or to have some opinion. Frankly, aBlogtoWatch is not that easy. Seriously replica watches though, aBlogtoWatch really has no long-term gain by selling our voice. If that were to happen, perhaps we could make additional revenue in the short-term, but replica watches sale the long term play results in an audience that no longer trusts us.

Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.

These workshops help to improve people's communication skill. Some people feel discomfort while talking with strangers and they don't know how to start the conversation. Dissertation writing service
