Using UK Hashtag Hours To Network With Local Or National Potential Customers

I have been for the last few months connecting with potential customers and building relationships on Twitter by joining in what I refer to the hashtag hours. My first successful networking campaign using twitter.

What Are Hashtag Networking Hours

These are usually geographic groups for local business to connect or specific interest groups, when joining the discussion you should tweet with the hashtag included e.g. #gloshour.  By using the #gloshour between 8-9pm Wednesday I connect with people and companies in the Gloucester area,  all #tag hours usually have a host who chairs the mayhem.  #gloshour host.

Why Use #Tag Hours

If you participate in the right hours for you, you will meet people interested in what you have to say, maybe a local issue or maybe a product launch or general promotion.

#hour Etiquette

My personal opinion is that;

  • You shouldn’t tweet the same thing to the same #hours, this gets boring.
  • Try and be loosely on topic for the #hour
  • Don’t just talk about yourself, comment and be interested in other users tweets, one comment or share of some ones tweets can result in them wanting to share yours, (relationship building)
  • More to follow, suggestions welcome !

Which Networking Hours And When?

I have compiled this list for me and my customers but thought many would be interested in this list for relevant promotion.  All the hosts in one twitter list. VIEW…

    THANKYOU! Very very helpful. i agree with the guidelines, although sometimes with a lot of #hours at once its just not possible to write a different message all the time – “Mayhem” is the word- but they are fun and I’m gradually seeing the casual interactions start to translate in to more permanent connections, as people decide to follow me – then I seek to add them on other Social Media platforms and ultimately to receiving my Blog: it’s a process and its hard work- but its also very valuable. Cheeky link time now: http://www.smarterwords.co.uk/2014/05/creative-blog-writing-workshop-cheltenham/ Thanks again.
