Which Twitter Hour?

A Twitter Hour basically sees a group of people coming together for one hour under a common hashtag, usually one which will describe a mutual interest, whether that be a hobby or lifestyle such as #VeganHour or #WeddingHour or a location, for example #DerbyshireHour or #MidlandsHour. The group of tweeters tweet during that hour using the hashtag on every tweet they send. Tweets are sent to advertise your business but, possibly more importantly, to engage in conversation, get to know people and build networks.

There are hundreds of Twitter hours you could get involved in but it’s crucial you balance your time and if you spend every waking hour networking on Twitter then other things are going to slide. We’ve got, what we think is the definitive list of current Twitter hours listed below, if we’ve missed any please let us know! So have a browse and maybe pick 3-4 that you think would suit your business well. We think it’s quite important to pick at least one location hour which reflects where your business is based, even if you operate worldwide. People like to shop local and support other local businesses so even if they can’t use you they may lead you to someone else who can.

Just before we blow your mind with our list we need to bring two very important #’s to your attention. Their time slot is a little bit longer than an hour but these are important and could have a significant impact on your business if you ‘win’

Wednesday 1pm-3pm #WOW – Stands for Women On Wednesday. This is for female entrepreneurs to pitch their business to CEO of Ann Summers, Jacqueline Gold. She then picks her top 3 businesses that week and retweets them to all her followers. Just tweet @Jacqueline_Gold your pitch and include #WOW

Sunday 5pm-7.30pm #SBS – Stands for Small Business Sunday and was created by Theo Paphitis, best known for his role on Dragons Den. Theo picks his top six on a Monday night at 8pm and retweets them to his half a million followers, which can be a huge boost for your business. Just tweet @TheoPaphitis your pitch and include #SBS

So, here goes, and be prepared, it’s lengthy!
