Cheryl Turner from Tao Solutions introduces (and hosts) #WiREHour
I have to admit to being a bit of an addict when it comes to Twitter Hours on the popular micro-blogging social media site, so imagine my delight when Fiona at WiRE HQ agreed that creating a dedicated #WiREHour might just work, and that it would be another great opportunity for WiRE members to network and promote their businesses.
After two weeks of build-up on social media, it was with slight trepidation that I sat with my iPad at 7pm on Tuesday 14th July waiting for the first ever #WiREHour to start – and the fear that I would be in for a very long hour of nothingness.
I am pleased to report that I have never been more wrong in my life! Almost immediately, the fantastic ladies of WiRE across the UK were Tweeting like crazy! New connections were made, businesses and events were promoted and those new to Twitter Hours tentatively paddled their toes in the surf of the great ocean known as social networking!
Hopefully, #WiREHour will continue to grow over the coming weeks and months. If you’re still baffled by the whole concept of networking from the comfort of your own armchair, here’s a quick guide to Twitter hours, and how they can benefit your business.
In A Nutshell –
I hope you’ve found that quick guide helpful, and look forward to “meeting” you during #WiREHour – every Tuesday from 7pm.
