Hashtag Monday June 3rd 2013 by Dane Cobain Choosing a suitable hashtag is essential for any large event whether you re active on social media or not although you should be It takes thought careful consideration and a dedicated effort to promote the hashtag before during and after the event A good hashtag will group everything together helping your event to cross over from the material world into cyberspace creating a lasting legacy that you can curate in the years to come to show the world just how fantastic it was And your events are fantastic right Here are eight tips on best practice for hashtag usage at events Before The Event 1 Do Your Research Before choosing a hashtag be sure to do your research A good hashtag should be short to preserve valuable characters and memorable You should also check to make sure that your hashtag isn t already being used generic terms will be cluttered and difficult to break through and you want all or at least 95 of the tweets that use the hashtag to relate to your event Bad MicrosoftNewProductLaunch Launch Good MSLaunch 2 Promote On All Collateral Once you ve decided upon your hashtag start using it in your tweets so that early adopters will see your existing tweets before they use the hashtag Otherwise you run the risk of people incorrectly assuming that no one is using the hashtag and not bothering to include it in their future tweets You ll also want to make sure that it s included on all of the collateral for the event from e shots and press releases to direct mail posters and even the tickets If you avoid this crucial step or carry it out half heartedly it will be difficult to gain traction and you might find that your perfect hashtag is left unused while people invent their own tags scattering the information and making it harder for you to track your hashtag s success During The Event 3 Monitor the Hashtag Have a social media team in place on the day to monitor the hashtag retweeting the best messages and offering support to those with questions Depending upon how big the event is and how much is going on you may need multiple people to take control of the Twitter feed In these circumstances agree in advance who will be responding to queries and separate the live tweeting duties between the other team members You should aim to have at least one team member monitoring the hashtag at all times to offer support and encouragement and to foster interactivity 4 Use it Everywhere Make sure you plaster the hashtag everywhere from speakers slides to goodie bags event programmes and any mobile app that you might be using Think outside the box and include your hashtag anywhere you can and ensure that it s included in any speaker sessions or announcements that are made 5 Consider Using a Tweetstream At some events you ll see screens scattered around that display a live stream of the most recent tweets to include the hashtag While this can be a risk as you never know when a negative or offensive tweet might appear it can also be incredibly rewarding Including these visual representations of what s happening online can encourage people to participate in the conversation and engender a sense of community Just make sure that somebody somewhere is monitoring the hashtag you might find that people start posting defamatory or unrelated tweets purely to see whether they appear in the Tweetstream In these circumstances most tweetstream providers will allow you to blacklist individual users so that their tweets no longer appear Good providers will also automatically censor profanity 6 Offer Unique Rewards to People Who Use The Official Hashtag To encourage usage of your hashtag promise additional rewards to people who use it in their social media posts At regular intervals choose a random user of the hashtag to win a prize whether it s extra swag a meet and greet opportunity or a free drink These random acts of kindness will quickly result in a positive buzz around the hashtag and ultimately they ll make the event more memorable for the lucky few who are chosen After The Event 7 Use an Aggregator You can use an aggregation tool like Storify to collect different types of media across the web and to embed it on to your website Storify can also notify the sources and best of all it s completely free Using an aggregation tool helps you to expose all of the content that was shared during your event and to present it after the fact in an intriguing mix between a case study and a blog post 8 Analyse the Sentiment Finally after the dust has died down and the event is over consider analysing

    to truly stand out in your field you must also carefully curate your online presence In this post I ll show you a real world example of how you can mine hashtag data to tailor your tweets with the right hashtags mention the right people and set yourself up to become an influencer in your field In the past professionals from various sectors would convene at in person conventions only a few times a year to discuss the latest findings and trends in public now those conversations are often open on Twitter 24 7 Hashtags are the glue that holds these conversations together and keeps them going on a specific topic You can use hashtags to both analyze what s going on and to jump into the debate in real time I work for a startup in the education space In this example I ll show you how I used hashtagify me to identify the right hashtags and the top influencers on Twitter to engage with those influencers and even to interview them Keep in mind that you can follow these steps for any field or specialization Step 1 Define your niche education is too broad It is vital to define your niche Education is a very broad topic and I found out that the most obvious hashtags edu and education are too generic for my goal of becoming a Twitter influencer One great way to find out how your niche is divided on Twitter is to do a basic hashtag search using Hashtagify s free service As you can see in the image below edu education has a lot of areas but many of the smaller niches aren t going to show up in the top 10 related hashtags Luckily using CyBranding Hashtag Intelligence the premium counterpart to hashtagify me I was able to dive deeper and find edtech which is nicely tailored to my interests So be sure to hone in on your exact specialty so you can become a top influencer in the field that best defines your passions Step 2 Determine influencers in your field When I first started teaching it was rare to find fellow educators on Twitter However in the past few years educators have flocked to Twitter in record numbers to share best practices and top news Again using Hashtag Intelligence I ve tracked nearly a million tweets for edtech in the past 70 days alone Now I want to find which influencers are the most active on Twitter Finding the top influencers is easy Simply click on the influencers tab for your hashtag and get ready to pull some amazing data On Hashtagify you ll find the top 6 while with Hashtag Intelligence I was able to get the top 50 As you can see below from the edtech Top Influencers Edutopia totally dominates the edtech hashtag in terms of user influence you can also see user specialization for this hashtag on the X axis Edutopia org is a website published by the George Lucas Educational Foundation As an organization Edutopia org is amazing and I definitely follow them on Twitter However I m more interested in finding individuals who are influencing the edtech arena so that I can connect with them and form more personal connections Step 3 Find individual influencers After doing a bit more research I see that the top three influencers for edtech are all organizations Don t forget to follow top organizations too because they share high quality content that you can re share to your followers However there are a few non organization accounts in the top 10 and they are even more interesting for me since I want to connect with individuals who are passionate about edtech So I reached out to shellterrell a super educator with a super Twitter presence She s the number one individual influencer for edtech according to the last 70 days data I learned that Shelly has trained teachers in over 20 countries and even founded the Twitter chat edchat I asked Shelly about her top tip for those new to Twitter She said it s all about the hashtags Shelly mentioned that she finds stuff she loves online and then shares via Twitter by using the appropriate hashtags ShellTerrell I m writing an article on edtech and would like to quickly interview you Can I email you some questions Or quick Skype Katie Williams fiberopticnow January 15 2014 Shelly contributes on Twitter everyday using these hashtags when sharing different content gems she s found By the way Shelly has over 46 000 followers on Twitter so definitely heed her words of advice Listen to her own words in the video that she shared on Twitter via Instagram below Find More Relevant Hashtags for your Field Shelly was kind enough to mention some other amazing educational Twitterers whom I could contact Because Shelly founded edchat another top hashtag for education I decided to dig deeper into this hashtag too Edchat is a Twitter chat for educators and those interested in chatting about education related topics Unlike many other Twitter chats edchat does not have a specific meeting time but rather asks educators to engage with others frequently yet meaningfully in this professional learning network I was able to find edchat influencers using Cybranding Hashtag Intelligence According to Hashtagify s data from the past 70 days the top influential individual for edchat is tomwhitby The second most influential individual for edchat whom Shelly also recommended to me to is cybraryman1 who has over 38 000 dedicated followers on Twitter Jerry Blumengarten aka cybraryman1 is an educator speaker writer and moderator of edchat Jerry says if you want to engage more on Twitter it s imperative that you find hashtags for various subdivisions of your sector For education he mentions following hashtags for one s specific subject area grade level and or state This is also easy to do for other fields Simply narrow down your topic into sub fields For example perhaps arted art education suits you better than education as an art teacher or elemchat elementary chat makes more sense for you than highered higher education As you can see it s important to find the specialized hashtags that will work best for you Check out Jerry s awesome Twitter tips he shared via Instagram below Nicholas Provenzano thenerdyteacher another top edchat influencer and friend of both ShellTerell and cybraryman1 was named the ISTE Outstanding Teacher of the Year in 2013 Nicholas chimed in on our discussion to advocate for authenticity on Twitter The Nerdy Teacher has over 33 000 followers on Twitter and makes a very authentic case for authenticity in his Vine below Step 4 Build connections drive engagement Now that you ve found the most interesting hashtags and influencers it s time to be persistent and consistent in your engagement on Twitter According to Ekaterina Walter a social media strategist at Intel there are a few ways to effectively engage on Twitter Tweet consistently Just like Shelly mentioned it s important to tweet each day using a wide range of hashtags for your field Consider setting aside time throughout the day to peruse content and tweet If you find yourself tweeting at various times throughout the day you might want to consider using a tweet scheduling app to schedule your tweets in advance Connect people Sometimes it can be daunting reaching out to Twitterers with follower counts in the tens of thousands like our edtech and edchat heroes you saw earlier but you ll be surprised how kind people are and how excited specialists are to connect with others in their field However don t forget to return the favor Connect others on Twitter and the good karma will keep on flowing It s also important to connect with upcoming influencers in your field Some real Twitter gems have less than a few thousand followers but share amazing content Connect lesser known Twitterers with one another when you know they share mutual interests and could benefit from one another s content Promote others When you come across a Twitterer that continuously shares awesome content don t be afraid to share them on ThankfulThursday or FF Follow Friday Simply add the person s username to your tweet and use the appropriate hashtags see example below So thankful for the interviews ShellTerrell cybraryman1 Don t forget to follow these amazing educators for the best info in edtech FF Katie Williams fiberopticnow January 17 2014 1 https www openforum com articles 12 most effective ways to engage on twitter SEO and SMM Which Hashtags Should You Use Friday January 17th 2014 by guest This post by Kristi Kellogg is an entry to our 4 000 Blogging Contest Kristi is a content strategist at Bruce Clay Inc journalist and social media butterfly Her articles appear in newspapers magazines across the Internet and in the book Content Marketing Strategies for Professionals A tweet without a hashtag is a wasted opportunity Hashtags amplify the reach of your tweets and by extension the content and links you share in those tweets As a writer and a community manager I want people to engage with my tweets that s why I optimize all my tweets for search and therefore discovery by using relevant hashtags Using relevant hashtags gets your tweets in front of your intended audience which leads to increased engagement increased social influence increased traffic to your site and ultimately conversions A lot of the articles I write at global Internet marketing firm Bruce Clay Inc center on search engine optimization search engine marketing and social media marketing While tweeting about these articles throughout 2013 I most often used SEO and SMM For 2014 I wanted to audit those hashtags and make sure SEO and SMM were the best hashtags I could be using for example how does my default social media hashtag SMM compare to socialmedia or social Am I using the most popular and most relevant hashtag I turned to Hashtagify me to find out Hashtags Related to Search Engine Optimization When adding hashtags to tweets on search engine optimization it seemed unlikely to me that people would be using the full 24 character SearchEngineOptimization when they could use the three character acronym SEO In an effort to determine if that is in fact the case I created an SEO bundle with these hashtags SEO Search SERP the acronym for the Search Engine Results Page commonly used among Internet marketers SearchEngineOptimization SearchEngineOptimisation using the British spelling Optimisation After creating my SEO bundle I used Hashtagify me to find each hashtag s popularity score I used the Hashtagify me data to create this chart As I suspected SEO is the most popular hashtag related to search engine optimization I was surprised however to learn that SearchEngineOptimization does come into play Though Search came in second with a 55 6 popularity score as Search is a general term it could be used in tweets unrelated to search engine optimization I used Hashtagify me to verify how much this is true According to Hashtagify me Search has an 18 8 correlation to SEO and a 14 6 correlation to Google the rest of the terms each had less than an 8 correlation to Search Based on this data I would feel pretty confident that utilizing Search will put a tweet in front of my intended audience of Internet marketers Hashtags Related to Social Media Marketing For tweets concerning social media marketing I usually use SMM but I wanted to check if that is the best choice So I created a social media marketing bundle using the hashtags SocialMedia Social SM SMM and SocialMediaMarketing My preferred and very specific hashtag SMM falls below SocialMedia Social and SM and this caused me to rethink my use of SMM I wanted to make sure however that SocialMedia was being used in tweets related to social media marketing Looking through recent SocialMedia tweets I discovered many unrelated tweets including tweets regarding viral memes general social media news social media fails solicitations for followers and occasional NSFW tweets But when I used TweetDeck to narrow my search to show only the top tweets related to SocialMedia almost all of the tweets were in fact related to social media marketing which confirms that I should use SocialMedia in my tweets Tweets about SocialMedia Hashtagify me also identified social media marketer Jeff Bullas as the No 3 influencer for the term SocialMedia and the No 1 influencer for the term SMM Looking at his tweets I discovered that Bullas often uses SMM and SocialMedia within the same tweet therein capturing engagement from the broader yet popular SocialMedia and the specific yet niche SMM Because SMM is incredibly relevant and a very popular hashtag in its own right I will continue to use SMM but I will also take a cue from Hashtagify me and Bullas and start using SocialMedia more often in relevant tweets SMM SocialMedia Are You Getting the Most Reach Out of your Hashtags Whatever field you re in knowing what are the best hashtags to use is a great help in maximizing your social media efforts With Hashtagify me you can discover if the hashtags you are using are in fact reaching your intended audience With the popularity scores and the related hashtags report you can assess your current social media strategy and identify top performing and relevant hashtags all to your advantage Kristi Kellogg is such a fan

    to compete next year competition on Social Media has its own rules and you better stick to them if you want to win The Event Hashtag A Very Rough Guide Wednesday November 20th 2013 by guest This post by Duncan Rice is an entry to our 4 000 Blogging Contest Duncan is a Digital Marketing Executive from Crawley in the UK When not helping clients with their social media questions at work he spends his free time doing social media for a local cat re homing charity Connecting with influencers peers or even your competition is an important part of any marketing plan Social media allows us to do this like never before Conferences and events give you the perfect platform to combine all your network efforts Organizers use the collaborative nature of the hashtag to help their attendees connect find new people or companies join a conversation or maybe just help to promote the event to their followers Here is a rough guide to using hashtags at events and a few good reasons to make use of those that are on offer What shall we call it The Content Marketing Show came to London for the second time on the 8th November and like most events came with a ready to use hashtag to promote the event contentmarketingshow One of the first things the event organizers did was to tell us the hashtag that they had chosen and how it was a little long Wouldn t it have been easier to choose cms maybe It would have but then what does that mean to those who aren t actually there content marketing show or content management system or can mike sing The choice of a long tail tag ensures that the message is clear and concise we all know exactly what it means without having to look it up What was it all about If the choice of hashtag didn t tell you what you needed to know and in this example it pretty much does how could you find out what was going on One of the easiest ways to do this is to find out what other topics people were tweeting about in relation to the main event The image below shows how one of the in event tags was used in relation to the main one The tag royalcontent was used in a presentation about that old adage Content is King and the presentation by the developers of the combined gov uk website also clearly had attendees paying attention Using the related hashtag tool on Hashtagify shows that two of the other tags most related to the Content Marketing Show were content and seo No big surprise to many when you realize that the future of SEO is mastering the content you produce Should I bother using event hashtags Take a look at the tweet below for that answer A retweeted retweet of a retweet about one of the presentations which was released in slide form after the event complete with hashtag just so you know exactly what it s all about If you happened to miss the line up for the event or weren t sure who might have something important to say the influencer report on hashtagify me will give you a good idea Now I was at the show and yet the top influencer report even surprised me Having the Press Association related to your hashtag is a very important thing to know Even if you missed the fact at the time the knowledge that someone like this is paying attention to your event could be an invaluable asset Do I just use it on the day I d take a look at the examples above again Tweeting links to presentation slides and finding the influential accounts who took notice of your event are a good reason to continue using the tag to summarize and inform those who weren t there or those who are looking for a little bit more information because they were too busy eating the free pick n mix sweets The popularity tool gives you a good example of how the contentmarketingshow hashtag was used in the run up to the event too That little bump 4 weeks before the event ties in nicely with the release of tickets while a nice steady build up in the run up to the day shows that some of the pre event workshops and peoples excitement at their upcoming day in the big city saw the tag used more and more as the day approached Is there anything in it for me I knew you d ask that and the answer is probably yes The fact that you re sitting in the same room with a bunch of strangers you ve never met can be unsettling for some It s a strange feeling having a conversation online with a stranger in the same room too But the fact that you re all there because you have something in common means that finding new connections is a lot easier when you re sharing a hashtag handing out business cards in the hallway just doesn t cut it anymore You ll be able to find new people to follow some might even follow you You ll be able to keep track of that cool tool that someone talked about learn about the company that provided that really good service you needed follow that person who had all those good ideas or maybe even get a new job oh there were some savvy HR people using that tag to put a few job adverts in front of the right audience too So you re an event hashtag fan then I d have to say that the evidence points to it being a positive use of your time As an event organizer the promotional benefits are obvious get people talking about your show in a way that you can easily monitor and engage with Give them
