Twitter Chats & Content Marketing: A #CMWorld Chat with Monina Wagner

October 12, 2016 Monina Wagner


The #CMWorld Twitter chat began as an experiment – a way to generate interest in our in-person event, Content Marketing World. Two years later, it has since become a weekly check-in for industry friends. The hour-long chat provides marketers with a break (albeit a productive one) from content creation.

This week, Content Marketing Institute Community Manager Monina Wagner joined us to share her expertise on Twitter chats.  If you are looking to start a Twitter chat or want to improve your experience as a guest, read on.

A few takeaways from the chat are below. Visit this chat’s Storify to see more tweets on this topic.

A2 as a participant, I make time for chats to stay on top of industry news. Have time for 140 characters and not entire articles. #CMWorld

Attain meaning connections for real value

With chats, it’s not only about what you know, but who you know. Creating friendships and fostering those relationships can be one of the greatest benefits of Twitter chats.
