  • What do all of these companies have in common?
  • What is a TweetUp? tweetup (coined 2007 Scott Monty Ford) n. A real world meeting between two or more people who know each other through the online Twitter service. n. A live event which has been promoted primarily on Twitter.
  • Step # 1 Before the event Pre-Planning, Planning and promoting
  • Check List for a Successful TweetUp
  • A good Hash Tag.. eg. #roofup (a TweetUp on a roof deck) (#brontosaurus just wont convey what you are really trying to communicate)
  • Choose a good location for your event (250 people in an Irish Bar in Southie just wont work, no matter how much you want it to)
  • Promote!!
  • Leverage your local Social Media Community.. Eg. @BostonTweetU p (Yes this is shameless (however, very effective for you) self promotion)
  • Stats 94% traffic < 5 tweets Sold out event
  • Yesterday 84% traffic 1 tweets 19 Signed up
  • Line up a event photographer/ Videographer (even if its you) (If a tree falls in a forest and there are no photographs or video, can you really be sure that it happened?)
  • Step # 2 During the event Hosting and Communicating
  • Monitor the feeling and atmosphere (encourage fun and socializing if its not organic) In Person and online
  • Provide name tags (encourage twitter handle) (Have photographer capture nametags Eg. twitter id because you know you wont remember them all)
  • Give out prizes and/ or Giveaways (People LOVE free stuff, but its not a requirement for a successful TweetUp)
  • What a TweetUp!!! People were mingling on the roof and
  • Inside the restaurant.
  • Great example of a TweetUp host Self Promote (in a unique, unobtrusive way) Be fun and social
  • Step # 3 After the event Thanking, Documenting, and Measuring
  • Measuring Success
  • Why #RoofUp was such a great success The goal of the TweetUp was to hold the rst TweetUp on a Roof Deck in Boston, and for the host to become better known in the social media community. Sara got what She wanted Success depends on the goals of each individual event
  • But its always nice when other people like it too 33% 93%
  • Now its the time to: Post Pictures on Flicker (or venue of choice) (people love pictures, especially of themselves)
  • Follow up with everyone via Twitter remember to look at the pics (nametags) if you forgot twitter handles
  • Create, Create, Create (or just rub in their faces how much fun you had and that they should have been there)
  • All have successful leveraged tweetups
