Join us for #mrktchat – the original ski and tourism Twitter chat
It’s time to kick off again #mrktchat. What started as a small group of ski resort marketing professionals has grown to over 208 Twitter followers and 127 Facebook group members. #mrktchat will continue to include ski resort and other travel&tourism, hospitality and leisure entities. We paused #mrktchat to regroup and reconsider its existence. Too many people have asked me to continue it since then. So, here it is. The new #mrktchat – Bigger and Better than ever.
As the very first ski and tourism marketing twitter chat, #mrktchat originally started on Thursdays at 2pm PST. Due to heavy twitter chat room noise on that day, I’m moving #mrktchat to Fridays. Please, leave a comment and let me know if that day/time works for you.
Past #mrktchat have included lively discussions centered on social media marketing and digital marketing trends. Special thanks to Eric Hoffman for contributing to and outlining some of the excellent topics for discussion and to Gregg Blanchard for promoting it. Many people in the past have gotten involved with moderating the chat. If you’d like to participate please, leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Starting in July 2012, join us every Friday 12 noon PST, 3pm EST to discuss social and digital marketing trends as they relate to ski, travel&tourism, hospitality and leisure businesses.
Where: Twitter; hashtag #mrktchat; Use tweetchat.com, so you don’t have to retype #mrtktchat with every response.
When: Friday; 12 noon PST; 3pm EST.
Chat Rules/Etiquette: Be cool, share ideas, ask questions, challenge other point of views or just listen. Lurkers are welcome, saying at least Hello makes me happy.
Become a chat moderator: If you’d like to present to his group (if you are a vendor or a technology provider) or moderate #mrktchat, please, drop me an email email@example.com. I will do my best to keep the calendar up to date.
