  34. Hey! where are my #blogging buddies and #cinchspiration girls? Y'all are missing an informative chat! #b2ctweet
  35. Twitter parties use #giveaways to encourage party goers to find out more about an upcoming event, product launch, or your #smbiz #b2ctweet

  52. RT @GrowMap: RT @momof3boys3702: Q2: The kind that wants the public talking about their brand #b2ctweet
  53. I'm curious, Kelli @momof3boys3702 How do you customize it for each brand? I mean, Old London and Walmart are not the same #b2ctweet
  54. RT @GrowMap: A2 ANY brand COULD benefit from a Twitter chat or party; Key is figuring out what's in it for your potential buyer! #b2ctweet
  55. @socialwebcafe Walmart - we had a party/chat about gearing up for back to school and AL tax free weekend #b2ctweet
  56. @GrowMap And what's going to keep them engaged throughout the chat to leave them asking for the next one... #b2ctweet
  57. If you have what you think is a "boring" #smallbusiness or are having trouble reaching your audience THINK TWITTER PARTIES! Fun #b2ctweet
  58. @socialwebcafe for old london we talked healthy foods and promoted their facebook party #b2ctweet
  59. #BacktoSchool would be a popular topic, added to Walmart fans. Great combination and example of how parties benefit #b2ctweet
  60. I love a challenge @b2cparty I bet I can find an angle to make a Twitter Party work for just about ANY #smallbusiness TRY ME #b2ctweet
  61. @socialwebcafe I have a pretty extensive questionnaire that I provide to help us craft the perfect party for the brand #b2ctweet
  62. RT @socialwebcafe: #BacktoSchool would be a popular topic, added to Walmart fans. Great combo & example of how parties benefit #b2ctweet
  63. Back-to-school and Tax Free Weekends are HUGE - if you sell clothing or school supplies or books you could tap into that buzz! #b2ctweet
  64. So using the BackToSchool angle, what kind of discussions were taking place? #b2ctweet
  65. We'd love to get a look at that questionnaire...hint...hint...@momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  66. RT @GrowMap: I love a challenge @b2cparty I bet I can find an angle to make a Twitter Party work for just about ANY #smallbusiness #b2ctweet
  67. RT @GrowMap: I love a challenge @b2cparty I bet I can find an angle to make a Twitter Party work for ANY #smallbusiness TRY ME #b2ctweet
  68. Good question. RT @DonnaFontenot: So using the BackToSchool angle, what kind of discussions were taking place? #b2ctweet
  69. I was thinking that, too :) RT @GrowMap: Wed love to get a look at that questionnaire...hint...hint...@momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  70. @DonnaFontenot must have school supplies, strangest thing on the school list, etc #b2ctweet
  71. RT @momof3boys3702: Q2: Twitter Parties (and Chats) are customized to fit your brand / event / theme and audience #b2ctweet
  72. @GrowMap just sign up for a twitter party and I will send it right over ;-) LOL! #b2ctweet
  73. Did you see what tweeting about our Twitter Parties did for the B2CTweet Facebook page ? From 0 to 2,434 fans already! #b2ctweet
  74. ROFL! You are good, Kelli! RT @momof3boys3702: @GrowMap just sign up for a twitter party and I will send it right over ;-) LOL! #b2ctweet
  75. RT @GrowMap: Did you see what tweeting about our Twitter Parties did for the B2CTweet Facebook page ? From 0 to 2,434 fans already #b2ctweet
  76. LOL @momof3boys3702 If only businesses had any idea how many hours have gone into developing how to maximize parties #b2ctweet
  77. Q3 How important is it to have experienced Twitter Party Hosts? #b2ctweet
  78. Q3 - I personally think it is EXTREMELY important to the overall brand... twitter parties can get pretty wild #b2ctweet
  79. RT @momof3boys3702: @DonnaFontenot must have school supplies, strangest thing on the school list, etc #b2ctweet
  80. Ok the "strangest thing" on a school list got my attention. I am a curious creature! #b2ctweet
  81. Q3 - I plan the entire party by the minute to keep everything focused and on track - as any experienced host would #b2ctweet
  82. @b2ctweet I think it's important to have experienced host to keep party on track! #b2ctweet
  83. I bet How to Save Money on School Supplies...where to get hard to find items on your lists...what's hot this season @DonnaFontenot #b2ctweet
  84. I think if you throw together something weith those that have no clue, it will show and reflect badly on your brand #b2ctweet
  85. TY! RT @GrowMap: LOL @momof3boys3702 If only businesses had any idea how many hrs have gone into developing how maximize parties #b2ctweet
  86. LOL We'll give you a guided tour...hahaha @DonnaFontenot You need to be schizophrenic to deal with issues at Twitter & in tools #b2ctweet
  87. you have 43 tweets a minute flying at an inexperienced host, you are going to hav major issues :-) #b2ctweet
  88. For example @DonnaFontenot You can't RT from within @TweetChat because tweets are too long so you flip to Twitter to do that #b2ctweet
  89. Would love to see the by-the-minute version.. :) Spreadsheet? @momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  90. And @DonnaFontenot Twitter delays vary between @tweetgrid @TweetChat and Twitter so I'm flipping between FIVE tabs to respond #b2ctweet
  91. Example: the walmart party I hosted, I lost power 3 times! 3 times my computer shut down. in 1 hour. #b2ctweet
  92. @GrowMap Really? You should have told me. I've been RTing in TweetChat #b2ctweet
  93. @socialwebcafe awe if I share EVERYTHING, I will be out of business ;-) I do a spreadhseet and #b2ctweet
  94. here's an interesting thing fo ru bloggers - as a hostess, make every important tweet short eough to RT #b2ctweet
  95. Always wild at a Twitter Party (in a good way, of course!) RT @DonnaFontenot: Wild in what way? #b2ctweet
  96. In @tweetgrid your host may be tweeting as themselves, their Twitter chat Username, sometimes additional usernames or the client! #b2ctweet
  97. Did we answer the question of what makes a "Qualified Host/Hostess" for a Twitter Party? If you had to pick 3 qualities... #b2ctweet
  98. Someone mentioned that businesses have no idea how much work goes into a party, but I'd guess they don't care. Just whatsinitforme #b2ctweet
  99. That Kelli @momof3boys3702 lost power 3 times during her Wal-Mart chat is why we will ALWAYS use 2-3+ hosts in different places #b2ctweet
  100. @b2cchat Large twitter following, experience in twitter parties, cool under pressure :-) #b2ctweet
  101. No if we share everything between us we will throw the biggest Twitter Parties the world has EVER seen! @momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  102. Can't blame a gal for trying! @momof3boys3702 (I'm proud of you for keeping trade secrets!) :D #b2ctweet
  103. @GrowMap luckily, I had my hotspot on my phone and my netbook open :-) #b2ctweet
  104. We have Deb the brilliant -what I call Deb @socialwebcafe because she added RSVP and tested FOUR calendar systems to get best one! #b2ctweet
  105. RT @GrowMap: No if we share everything between us we will throw the biggest Twitter Parties the world has EVER seen! #b2ctweet
  106. Yes! RT @momof3boys3702: @b2cchat Large twitter following, experience in twitter parties, cool under pressure :-) #b2ctweet
  107. RT @DonnaFontenot: Some1 mentioned that businesses have no idea how much work.but I'd guess they don't care. Just #whatsinitforme #b2ctweet
  108. @GrowMap I share a TON of my stuff including my pricing etc on my website - but I have 2 keep something to keep me above the crowd #b2ctweet
  109. @momof3boys3702 @socialwebcafe @GrowMap What are ways 2 initiate and build buzz abt a twitter party if followers aren't engaging? #b2ctweet
  110. If you're not familiar with using @tweetgrid you may find @TweetChat easier to follow at first @johnrodr How-to in that post. #b2ctweet
  111. RT @momof3boys3702: heres an interesting thing fo ru bloggers - as a hostess, make every important tweet short eough to RT #b2ctweet
  112. LOL I noticed how slickly Kelli @momof3boys3702 does SHORT tweets. Sorry Deb @socialwebcafe I thought I told you I RT from Twitter #b2ctweet
  113. TRUE @DonnaFontenot They don't care about the work but they need to know that what goes on behind the scenes + WHO is hosting >> #b2ctweet
  114. Is critical. Ask Deb @socialwebcafe about REACH - If she doesn't have stats handy we can show you after the chat. @DonnaFontenot #b2ctweet
  115. Q4 What do you as the Twitter Party service provider do versus what does the business have to do? #b2ctweet
  116. @GrowMap Hey no apologies.. I find it mentally stimulating to figure out how to shorten RTs in #tweetchat :D #b2ctweet
  117. RT @b2ctweet: Q4 What do you as the Twitter Party service provider do versus what does the business have to do? #b2ctweet
  118. Q4 - I can handle as much or as little as the brand wants - that is fugured out in our initail consultation #b2ctweet
  119. TweetReach Pro stats courtesy @tweetreach >>  https://appozite.tweetreach.com/share/reports/c147952cb87cacbea484fd8ee2c08b4e7faaf310 treach.com/share/reports/c147952cb87cacbea484fd8ee2c08b4e7faab2ctweetw who was on it and how many impressions they can drive #b2ctweet
  120. With the Walmart party, I did about 98 percent of it. THey did tell about it and provided a couple tweets during event #b2ctweet
  121. @b2ctweet q4 I think as party host you act on behalf on both guests And brand. Doing double duty. #b2ctweet
  122. However with Old London, I was more a panelist than a host - they ran it and I kept things going #b2ctweet
  123. RT @PintasticMom: @b2ctweet q4 I think as party host you act on behalf on both guests And brand. Doing double duty. #b2ctweet
  124. A4 The business needs to make money so that they can hire expert Twitter Chat and Twitter Party hosts/hostesses :) #b2ctweet
  125. If I join an existing Twitter chat where almost no one knows me their numbers can double because of WHO follows @GrowMap's 29,537 #b2ctweet
  126. LOL @socialwebcafe: @GrowMap Hey no apologies.. I find it mentally stimulating to figure out how to shorten RTs in #tweetchat :D #b2ctweet
  127. I've found that you can sometimes "lose your audience" if it becomes too one-way. You need to be able to engage. #b2ctweet
  128. You are just THAT awesome, Gail! @GrowMap Actually more awesome! :D #b2ctweet
  129. GREAT QUESTION from @NappyNattyMomMe What are ways 2 initiate and build buzz abt a twitter party if followers aren't engaging #b2ctweet
  130. @NappyNattyMomMe ask questions or say something TOTALLY random and off the wall - like so glad it is friday (on a Tuesday) #b2ctweet
  131. You have to get influencers to support you who have large Twitter audiences @NappyNattyMomMe My followers are social media savvy > #b2ctweet
  132. Many are bloggers or Social Media Marketers so they already know WHAT to do if I make it EASY for them to do it @NappyNattyMomMe #b2ctweet
  133. @b2cchat I have tons of links - my pricing (you can use it to come up with your own)  http://3boysandadog.com/twitter-parties-at-3-boys-and-a-dog/ comb2ctweet-parties-at-3-boys-and-a-dog/ #b2ctweet
  134. Then during chats Deb & I have time to scroll up & down welcoming people, pulling them into the conversation @NappyNattyMomMe #b2ctweet
  135. That is how Chats are very different than what Kelli does in Big Brand parties which are HUGE volume flying by @momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  136. Blogging Basics: How To Offer A Twitter Party as Part of Your Ad Options | 3 Bo..  http://bit.ly/SjHPBB  #b2ctweet
  137. You need to know your audience. If you have lurkers who want to learn, #teach. If you have partiers that want to party, #party #b2ctweet
  138. The busier the chat or party the better it is to have multiple co-hosts. Kelli's huge parties could benefit, too @momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  139. RT @momof3boys3702: Blogging Basics: How To Offer A Twitter Party as Part of Your Ad Options | 3 Bo..  http://bit.ly/SjHPBB  #b2ctweet
  140. @GrowMap But, I have to get the people to the party or it doesn't fly by :-) #b2ctweet
  141. Yes - never underestimate your reach. There are TONS of lurkers listening & learning as @tweetreach stats prove @socialwebcafe #b2ctweet
  142. @PintasticMom Thank you. Enjoying chatting with you. And love the username. PintasticMom - so cool! #b2ctweet
  143. @GrowMap I use other social media, forums, and my bog to build the audience sometimes weeks in advance of the party #b2ctweet
  144. Even when you're in #teach mode you have to make it fun! That is why Twitter Parties are taking off - it is fun AND profitable! #b2ctweet
  145. @GrowMap I use other social media, forums, and my blog to build the audience sometimes weeks in advance of the party #b2ctweet
  146. While engagement is important, you have to recognize that there are those who do not want to engage and do want to #lurk #b2ctweet
  147. Yes we HAVE to get people to the party & that takes TONS of work @momof3boys3702 If a business can afford more cohosts = bigger #b2ctweet
  148. Too many times, there hv been scheduled Twitter Chats tht hv ceased to exist because the host/hostess thinks no one is listening. #b2ctweet
  149. The #giveaway aspect of parties can get more to participate, but still a lot of people are almost invisible DURING the party #b2ctweet
  150. Another great thing to do is to have... ready for it? .... Guest! cc: @momof3boys3702 :D Then, u tap into their following, too #b2ctweet
  151. Threaten to throw in the towel blogging or in a forum or community or a chat and then the lurkers will say NO! NO! @b2cparty #b2ctweet
  152. I have a question to the twitter chat experts - how does a chat pricing differ from a party pricing? #b2ctweet
  153. RT @socialwebcafe: Another great thing to do is to have... ready for it? .... Guest! #b2ctweet
  154. Wow time flies when you're having fun. Any last minute questions for Kelli @momof3boys3702? #b2ctweet
  155. RT @GrowMap: Wow time flies when you're having fun. Any last minute questions for Kelli @momof3boys3702? #b2ctweet
  156. I encourage bloggers to COLLABORATE to throw bigger & better Twitter chats & Twitter Parties reaching far more @momof3boys3702 #b2ctweet
  157. someone asked about how I use my blog - here's an example:  http://3boysandadog.com/2012/06/100-dollar-giveaway-and-a-twitter-chat-with-prizes/ cob2ctweet6/100-dollar-giveaway-and-a-twitter-chat-with-prizes/ #b2ctweet
  158. Thrilled you could be here Kelli @momof3boys3702 We have learned so much from you. Wait until you see what Deb @socialwebcafe did! #b2ctweet
  159. RT @GrowMap: I encourage bloggers to COLLABORATE to throw bigger & better Twitter chats & Twitter Parties reaching far more #b2ctweet
  160. Thank you all for joining us for another #B2CTweet Twitter Chat with our special guest @momof3boys3702 Please feel free to continue chatting
