  1. @socialcafechat A4) Still struggling with organic growth on #socialmedia Whatever I'll be doing it'll be in this arena #socialcafe
  2. @socialcafechat A4: You have motivated me to make a challenge list for my social media. I have the "multi-tasking mastering tools" in place and now I have to get serious about the investment! #SocialCafe
  3. A4 I belong to a group/team of people who agree to share each others' posts, etc. on a quid pro quo. The reason I like it is because it isn't a tactic. There are rules, but the idea is to truly encourage others with meaningful responses #SocialCafe
  4. @Kathrynclang @socialcafechat Do you have a link? It sounds interesting... Love the verbiage "multi-tasking mastering tools" :) #SocialCafe (Maybe you included it last week and I'm being a ding dong.. lol )
  5. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat I love your insights on organic growth, Con. And, you have done an awesome job! It must be that winning personality and sense of humor ;) #SocialCafe
  6. Q5 Any last thoughts on engagement online? Any questions or ideas? #SocialCafe
  7. @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat Nope - no link. I just a made up the title :D I'll share with you when I get my challenge list completed though. #SocialCafe
  8. @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat Naw, you're too kind, just slogging away while others are working on their personal loves! #socialcafe
  9. A5 Probably unrelated, but I have a task tonight to make sure I have all of those #Storify stories backed up on our site for #SocialCafe
  10. @socialcafechat A5) Actual engagement works but it takes time and effort I'm also afraid that the law of diminishing returns may set in #socialcafe
  11. I can't believe our time has gone by so fast, again! BTW - I didn't forget about our features that we worked on last week. I'll get those links to you, too #SocialCafe
  12. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat The problem is that we tend to look in the wrong place for the returns. Like tonight - y'all were my return and I didn't even expect it :D #SocialCafe
  13. Oh, and that reminds me.. Not sure what question I was going to respond to on this, but #Roundups are great, too. Using a tool like @myblogu allows us to not only collect views, but interact with people, another opportunity for engagement #SocialCafe
  14. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat You know.. I was wondering, but it was like, "whatever floats your boat" :) #SocialCafe
  15. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney @socialcafechat But, that is the most meaningful, when it is the unexpected/unplanned. I have been so encouraged by that.. and by this group :) #SocialCafe
  16. Have to run now! Night all and thanks for joining! See everyone next week! #socialcafe
  17. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat I used to be more concerned about that.. law of diminishing returns ... and then reminded myself that if I send out an encouraging tweet, I am hopefully helping someone else, regardless of the return. That helped. #SocialCafe
  18. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney @socialcafechat I agree - you literally infused me with the motivation to take the next step (in the moment when I didn't even recognize I needed it) :D #SocialCafe
  19. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney @socialcafechat And, your response has encouraged me, this evening (my night is still young on the West Coast) in what I need to get done this evening ;) Thank you! #SocialCafe
  20. Hey all... love the time together... Still lurking (there has to be a better word!) here at #SocialCafe but officially it is goodnight and see y'all next week, same time, same place ;) [waving] #SocialCafe

  29. Welcome to our weekly 30 min check in on all things social media and blogging/writing here at #SocialCafe
  30. Tonight's topic is networking. We all do it. We know we should, but how do we fit it into our busy schedules? One way are these Twitter Chats! #SocialCafe
  31. @conpsweeney Hey Con - How are you this week... jumping from one chat ( #linkedinchat ) to another ( #SocialCafe )?
  32. @socialcafechat LOVE twitter chats for networking - be engaged and connect with others! #SocialCafe
  33. Q1 What do you think our main objectives are in networking with others (probably multiple answers to this one)? #SocialCafe
  34. @Kathrynclang @socialcafechat I do, too! As you probably know, I'm putting together a site with a calendar of twitter chats.. But, just yesterday, I found a hidden calendar in my Google. Yay! #SocialCafe
  35. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat Ooooo I like that focus on win-win #SocialCafe Someone get something out of it on both ends.
  36. @ChaimShapiro Hi Chaim. Oh, that is a great way to think of it, using the very word to describe it! #SocialCafe
  37. @Kathrynclang I like that, too, Kathryn.. creating those lasting connections. Just the other day I received a really special noted from someone I met during my more concentrated networking days - so special! #SocialCafe
  38. Q2 What are some ways that we can use Twitter to network and connect with influencers? #SocialCafe
  39. @socialcafechat A2) Follow them, put them on lists, RT them, comment on their content #socialcafe
  40. Using a tool like @commun_it is also a great way to stay connected on Twitter #SocialCafe
  41. @socialwebcafe You made my entire week last week - I'm still flying high on your sweet comment! #SocialCafe
  42. @ChaimShapiro That is a great plan. I have a friend who uses something similar and is very successful at it. #SocialCafe
  43. @Kathrynclang I love that part about being you unique self. People can see through it when you don't. #SocialCafe
  44. @Kathrynclang Ah... I'm so glad to hear that ;) I was just being honest and I'm so glad that it helped :) #SocialCafe
  45. Q3 What about Facebook and Linkedin... What are some ways that we can network and connect in a more effective manner on those platforms? #SocialCafe
  46. @socialwebcafe It's exhausting trying to be someone else - and something you aren't designed to be anyway. Just be you. YOU are worth it! #SocialCafe
  47. A3 It almost seems easier to put likes on content on Facebook and LinkedIn and even comments to show that you care #SocialCafe
  48. @Kathrynclang So true... not that I want to admit I've tried it.. lol #SocialCafe rofl
  49. A3: All networking (live, social media, internet) needs to be about the other people. Connecting with them. Engaging them. Helping them. THAT is what creates a foundation for opportunity. Be invested in others. #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialcafechat/status/963597915997556736 
  50. @socialwebcafe I only try it when I'm in character (probably on stage) and even THEN it's still exhausting ;) #SocialCafe
  51. @socialcafechat A3) Similar to #Twitter for #linkedin, connect/follow, engage, plus create your own content while sharing that of others, #facebook is a bit different and if you're B2B I probably wouldn't do a lot there #socialcafe
  52. @Kathrynclang May I put that on a post? "Be invested in others" - Kathryn Lang #SocialCafe
  53. Q4 What are some other ways that we can network with people on other social networks and offline? #SocialCafe
  54. @socialwebcafe Put it on a post, t-shirts, billboards :D Just make sure to spell my name right ;) #SocialCafe
  55. A4: Step up and take the lead. Start a chat. You may not know it all but I bet you know more than someone else #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialcafechat/status/963599173093285888 
  56. @Kathrynclang I'll do that.. and send you the link and if I goofed, fix it in 30 seconds ;) #SocialCafe
  57. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe @socialcafechat Engagement - it really is that simple. Why do we work so hard to make it complicated? #SocialCafe
  58. @Kathrynclang I like that. It actually makes it easier when someone does step up to take the lead. And, when I do it, pretty much it is successful every time. I think it depends on the "who." #SocialCafe
  59. @socialcafechat A4) Social selling, sharing knowledge without charging for it! #socialcafe
  60. @conpsweeney @socialcafechat Love it - "sharing knowledge without charging for it" -Con | Isn't that a bit of what blogging is? #SocialCafe
  61. Q5 What are some tricks that can help us to keep networking but not burning out or losing our minds in the process (because of the time and energy involved)? #SocialCafe
  62. A5 Do you think keeping a schedule and some loose boundaries on our time helps to keep us focused and yet still engaging? #SocialCafe
  63. A5 I read somewhere that 20% should be content writing and 80% promotion. I'm wondering if we can replace the 80% with networking / engaging / being real #SocialCafe
  64. @socialwebcafe I'm thinking that promotion (of others) is networking. As I engage with you I will naturally and organically share you #SocialCafe
  65. #socialcafe Have to run now! Thanks for joining all! See everyone next week!
  66. I have enjoyed our time together and learned so much. Thanks, all, for joining #SocialCafe and we will see you next week. Same time. Same place.
  67. @Kathrynclang Ok, I need to find a frame and put your printed tweet in it- that is beautiful and applicable! #SocialCafe

  73. Welcome to #SocialCafe Chat! Glad to have you here for the 30 min check-in on all things social media related (and blogging).
  74. Tonight's topic is about how you approach branding on Twitter (or other social platforms). #SocialCafe
  75. @socialwebcafe HA . . . branding seems to be my running theme for the week :) #SocialCafe
  76. Hey #socialcafe I am Hillary Kent a marketing student @ChamplainEdu joining this #TwitterChat for fun and to show my class #ccc410mkt
  77. Q1 Do you ensure that you are representing your brand on Twitter? Please explain :) #SocialCafe
  78. @socialwebcafe By being authentic in my engagements. No #humblebrags #selfpromos. It's a privilege to be able to connect with smart people on the #socialweb. #socialcafe
  79. @Kathrynclang Thanks, @Kathrynclang Yeah, it is amazing... it does go by fast, like faster than half of 60 min should.. lol #SocialCafe
  80. A1: I try to remember that if I wouldn't write it on my website (homebase) then I don't need to write it on my social media. AND if I wouldn't say it in person then I don't need to say it online #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/966131862035890177 
  81. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe I know all I need to know about the #darkweb - it's when you turn off the webcam so THEY can't see you, right? #SocialCafe
  82. @BilalJaffery I love that, @BilalJaffery - being authentic in your engagements. Great way to describe it! #SocialCafe
  83. @socialwebcafe Thank you - I'm trying to practice better brand representation ;) #SocialCafe
  84. Q1 To ensure that you are representing your brand it is very important to put yourself out there and not be anything your not! Make sure you engage in your brand with good values and make sure your brand is ethically responsible! #socialcafe #TwitterChat #makinggood
  85. @Kathrynclang I wouldn't imagine you needing any practice. But, then practice is always a good thing, even when we are experts #SocialCafe
  86. Q2 In what ways to you ensure that you are sticking to your brand representation on Twitter? Is it only the profile... your tweets... #SocialCafe
  87. A1 Ensuring my Twitter Profile represents my brand is a first step.... #SocialCafe
  88. @socialwebcafe For a while there, I let THEY tell me how to act and what to do. I lost my authentic voice. #SocialCafe
  89. @HillaryKent13 Good point, @HillaryKent13 Or, good points! I especially love the part about ethically responsible! Some people miss that one and I'm glad you pointed it out here ;) #SocialCafe
  90. @Kathrynclang I'm curious on the rest of the story... I think you found your authentic voice, eh? #SocialCafe
  91. A2: Ensure your brand by: 1. DEFINING your brand (in writing where you can see); 2. hold all tweets and shares up to that standard before hitting send/tweet/share #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/966133120385912834 
  92. @socialwebcafe I refound my voice . . . and when I refound it then it became easier to engage with people, find my target, and really enjoy what I was doing. #SocialCafe
  93. A2 I do have a couple of other brands, if you will (like my music brand). I don't isolate the brands, but I ensure I am in the frame of mind for the correct brand. Like not going on and on about Jazz music on this Twitter profile ;) #SocialCafe
  94. @socialwebcafe A2. Our brand is collective representation of how we interact with others. The positive and the negative. So all times. Not profile imagery. #socialcafe
  95. @Kathrynclang I can see that. In fact, before I got to the word "easier" in your tweet, I was picturing that... True to yourself ;) #SocialCafe
  96. Don't forget to socialize with tools like @commun_it - helping you to build relationships on Twitter #SocialCafe
  97. @BilalJaffery Good point. It is so easy to think in terms of the singular, but of course that is not the case and certainly not always the case. Yes, collective representation. Makes sense. #SocialCafe
  98. Q3 What challenges do you face when it comes to your branding on Twitter (or other social platforms)? #SocialCafe
  99. @conpsweeney I am, too. Prefer that. But, tonight I seem to be babbling to the full tweet constraints :) #SocialCafe
  100. A3: I have to be careful with the snark :) Although it is part of my brand, it doesn't always translate well #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/966134630649798657 
  101. @HillaryKent13 Thanks - I've said it so much that my sons don't even want to have social media accounts :D #SocialCafe
  102. @socialwebcafe A3) Still struggling with organic growth #Twitter is changing and we're all playing catchup! #socialcafe
  103. @Kathrynclang I like your snark, @Kathrynclang ! I wish I had more snark. Tho, if you asked my kids.. They have been known to ask me to tone it down before meeting bf parents... #SocialCafe
  104. Q2 It is not just your profile and your tweets that matters to your brand on #Twitter ... It is everything! What you like, who you are following, who is following you, what you post, what you retweet, what you comment on. Every engagement counts! #EEC #Socialcafe #TwitterChat
  105. @conpsweeney Are you finding any answers to organic growth or finding explanations for the changes? As in what they are... #SocialCafe
  106. @socialwebcafe Thank you . . . it's a blessing - and a curse (especially when your kids inherit the skill and team up on you) #SocialCafe
  107. Q4 What successes (or validations) have you experienced when it comes to representing your brand on Twitter? #SocialCafe (Or, what successes or validations would you like to experience?)
  108. @socialwebcafe Nope to both questions! I think the political situation is affecting them #socialcafe
  109. @Kathrynclang Oh, but isn't that fun? I just dish it back and then my daughter and I do that to my husband... But, he just walks away and picks up the guitar... one of them.. lol #SocialCafe
  110. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe Oh no no no - no Siri in this house. Even the Google voice that gives me directions lies to me and we argue about that. She is more than enough for me to deal with #SocialCafe
  111. @conpsweeney I wonder if that will ever just pass and normal life (whatever that is) will return. #SocialCafe
  112. @socialwebcafe I have a house FULL of them . . . and they love word play, quoting movies and music randomly, and accents - my house is a daily stage show #SocialCafe
  113. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Ok, please forgive me... I started laughing out loud. I was picturing you getting after Google voice in a conversation with it. Not that I haven't done that (wink) #SocialCafe
  114. @conpsweeney It is definitely part of my brand, and I am okay with that now. #SocialCafe You have to be okay with your brand because not everyone else will be!
  115. @socialwebcafe It is but at the same time every social media platform has a good amount to handle when it comes to making sure your brand represents you in the best way possible! #SocialCafe #TwitterChat
  116. @socialwebcafe A4) Still trying to figure out how to monetize #Twitter Also, trying to find anyone who is making money there! #socialcafe
  117. @Kathrynclang Oh, the days... Yes, we had that... I told my daughter yesterday that I missed her and her siblings.. even their fights! #SocialCafe
  118. A4: Comments from others that I have engaged with have been the best confirmation that I am representing my brand well. #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/966135888706023425 
  119. @HillaryKent13 So true! When I began, I was trying to be everything to every social platform. Then, when I realized the definition of "every" I realized balance was advisable and to stick with the main ones. #SocialCafe
  120. Q5 Any tips or suggestions you could offer to people wondering about keeping true to their brand on Twitter? #SocialCafe
  121. A5: Take time to really define your brand. You have to be secure and confident so that you know how to act and respond in that brand. #SocialCafe  https://twitter.com/socialwebcafe/status/966136895154544640 
  122. @conpsweeney That is a good question.. one I think I have been seeking all my life, which is why I decided to NOT be normal :) #SocialCafe
  123. @socialwebcafe Not just sticking with the main ones but stick with the social media platforms that is right for your brand! It is very important to make sure that your brand is on the right platforms to ensure the most success! #SocialCafe
  124. A5 Inspired by @conpsweeney mention of normal... Find your own normal, who you are... go with that for your brand and how you set up your profile and engagements #SocialCafe
  125. @conpsweeney @socialwebcafe I made cleaning and cooking a fun thing and now they do that for me (sometimes anyway ;) ) #SocialCafe
  126. @HillaryKent13 Oh, I stand corrected. You are absolutely right, @HillaryKent13 In actuality, I stuck with the ones that fit the brand, but you make a very good point and one that needs to be stated so people don't just go for the main ones (like I suggested) and miss the others #SocialCafe
  127. @socialwebcafe A5) Keep it simple, tweet consistently and often, and engage with others #socialcafe
  128. @Kathrynclang @conpsweeney Isn't that fun? I love it when my daughter makes crepes. When she comes home, she takes over the kitchen and cooks and bakes for us :) #SocialCafe
  129. Thank you so much for joining us! I look forward to chatting next week... same time, same place for #SocialCafe
  130. Have to run! Thanks for joining all! See everyone next week! Stay safe! #socialcafe
  131. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney My middle son makes EVERYTHING - from salmon to sweets. LOVE that he's willing to try! #SocialCafe
  132. Q5 Tips: Always be true to your brand and make sure what you are portraying out on the internet is what you want the world to see! #SocialCafe #TwitterChat #branding
  133. Thank you everyone for some great conversation! See you next time! #SocialCafe
  134. @socialwebcafe @conpsweeney And speaking of my amazing middle son . . . the chef . . . he got up before dawn this morning to make a breakfast casserole. :) I AM BLESSED! #SocialCafe
