The very first TweetUp Tuesday was a smashing success! Eight credit unions were represented, including Anheuser-Busch Employees’ Credit Union, American Eagle Credit Union, Vantage Credit Union, Alliance Credit Union, Arsenal Credit Union, West Community Credit Union, Scott Credit Union and Purina Credit Union.
In addition to discussing holiday content, the group of credit union professionals chatted about areas of concern—successful posting times, reaching fans and activating fellow employees as social media advocates.
The group also shared helpful sources for insightful social media articles and tips. Several participants followed social media consultant, Jon Loomer and his blog. In a recent article, "How to Maximize Organic Reach in Facebook News Feed," Loomer offers a number of ways to increase organic engagement with fans. He also hosts a free mini-webinar every Wednesday that is beneficial for social media specialists.
Want to take part in #TweetUpTuesdays? The next one will be held on Tuesday, January 14, 6-7:30 p.m. at the Blue Sky Tower Grill, 1034 S. Brentwood Blvd in Richmond Heights (across from the Galleria). Topics will include content calendars and best practices for finding/scheduling updates.
If you plan on attending, please send an email to Nora Holloway, MCUA PR and Online Community director.
