Thank you for your interest in being a guest on #SmallBizChat! In preparation for the TwitterChat, here is what you should know in order to ensure a great chat experience.
#SmallBizChat is a weekly interactive talk show on Twitter for small business owners. It takes place every Wednesday from 8-9 pm eastern time. Participants and guests type answers to questions from the host, using the social media site Twitter.
The focus of #SmallBizChat is to help small business owners succeed as their own boss by reducing the learning curve as their small businesses start and grow.
The target market for #SmallBizChat is emerging entrepreneurs 25-54, who have been in business less than five years. We try to balance topics on the chat between challenges for start-ups and issues faced by a business with 20 or fewer employees.
To be considered as a guest on #SmallBizChat we require that you submt:
- a specific topic (The more specific the topic the better)
- a link to a blog post, article or book about the topic
- a one page bio
- an electronic media kit (if you have one or are an author)
- your twitter name
- your complete contact information
Please send all information to smallbizlady at gmail dot com Once the above info has been reviewed, a phone interview will be scheduled.
If you are confirmed as a guest, we need a twitter bio and 10-12 questions and answers that you can answer during the live TweetChat. They must be emailed to smallbizlady at gmail dot com at least 5 days before your appearance date.
The host, Melinda Emerson may use your Q&A as a blog post at www.succeedasyourownboss.com so be sure to answer in complete sentences.
If you have a free giveaway, resource guide or blog post about the topic, feel free to use it as a link in your answers. Or we can always give it away at the end of the chat. It’s not required, but it’s good to have to grow your followers.
#SmallBizChat is hosted by @smallbizlady Melinda Emerson, a veteran enterpreneur and smallbiz coach based in Philadelphia and is co-hosted by @cathywebsavvypr, a public relations and social media strategist.
