Power of Influence at Industry Conferences #CONV12

An interesting highlight popped up last night looking at hashtag analytics via @hashtracking.  Covering Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2012 in Houston, I wanted to see how does this every busy conversation via #CONV12 stacked up to our #Speakchat community conversation that happens in an hour.


24 hours VS 1 hour Hashtag conversation

What is the difference?

Simple #Speakchat had an influencer involved.  This is the power of expanding your brand voice and message when working with an influencer.

Next we will discuss HOW to reach out to Influencers-making sure you do not stub your toes in that process.  Until next time – ask yourself how can you build your brand’s audience more effectively?
