  1. 1. Catherine J. Heeg Customized Management Solutions Phone: 403 726 0171 Fax: 403 726 0371 Tips to Create Twitter Chats Think of the possibilities of talking with prospective clients as a group. As a tour operator you can let people know that you’ll be hosting a Twitter chat at a specific time and will feature destination information and a conversation with an expert—YOU! As a supplier a Twitter chat is the perfect medium to bring together brand advocates. As a travel consultant imagine bringing together clients and potential clients that are interested in your niche market. Successful Twitter chats feature:  A moderator who’s armed with a series of questions to generate conversation  When initiating a new question start it with Q1: type in your question here. o Respondents can be instructed to answer in this format: A1: type in answer here. This will keep the conversation flowing smoothly.  A pre-arranged # (hashtag), theme and start/finish time  Strong marketing to attract passionate participants  As a participant you may want to use a platform to easily see the conversation as it unfolds and not have other tweets get in the way. Check out: o TweetDeck o Hootsuite  For small business owners, here are a few that may be of interest: o #smbiz: A chat where small business owners can get answers from experts and other SMB owners.
