I Saw Your Tweet

Want to get found at a conference? Engage in meaningful conversations while you are supposed to be silent? Debate content and be seen as a thought leader? You probably already do this; just tweet.

I’ve always live tweeted at conferences. I feel that the stream and conversations add a layer of value and help me find some relevant, often local, people to follow and connect with.

Weeks ago I was at Product Camp Toronto. I commented on a presentation with a few hash tags. A few hours later at lunch I was approached by several people about the tweets / comments I have made. Not only were people proactively seeking me (far easier networking) but I’ve closed contracts with many of these companies and have offered quotes to many more!

What have you got to lose by sending out a few tweets at a conference? You probably have a smartphone anyway. There is plenty to gain.
