Twitter Chats - A Small Business Secret WeaponHave you ever wondered what those Twitter chats and online parties are all about or have you thought they might be useful for your own small business?  If so, you’ve come to the right place to learn more about Twitter chats and Twitter parties.

Twitter Chats - A Small Business Secret WeaponCathy Larkin, Founder of Web Savvy PR, also known as @CathyWebSavvyPR, co-host of Melinda Emerson’s #SmallBizChat, joins Anita Campbell and Brent Leary to share 5 ways to get involved in some of the more than 150 weekly chats taking place on Twitter, plus effective tips for using them to connect with your audiences and prospects.

Below are the questions we asked Cathy:

  • (2:46) First Cathy, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?
  • (5:43) Tell us what a Twitter chat really is and how does one participate?
  • (10:57) During a Twitter chat you’re literally reading Tweets to participate?
  • (11:42) Can you compare and contrast Twitter chats versus Twitter parties?
  • (16:22) When Bush’s Baked Beans sponsored the discussion, was that a Twitter party or a Twitter chat?
  • (19:25) So the difference between Twitter parties and Twitter chats is that the Twitter parties offer giveaways and discounts, target mom bloggers (WAHMs) and their networks, drive traffic to a site and build communities?
  • (21:36) What are the 5 ways people can participate?
  • (22:03) What’s the best way for someone trying to build their reputation to get started?
  • (25:28) If you’re a business owner that’s new to this, what are the best ways to determine if you should sponsor a chat or facilitate a chat on your own?
  • (28:24) If there is one downside to a Twitter chat, what would it be?
  • (29:14) Where can people find out more?
