Twitter Conversations That May Grow Your Business

A couple of weeks ago, our CEO John Foley, Jr. published an article that discussed the use of hashtags in Twitter.

In some cases, a hashtag may be used to conduct an interview between two parties. In other cases, it is used to group together a conversation on a certain subject between many people.

If you are looking to increase the value that that you get from Twitter, there are a few hashtags that you may want to pay attention to. Here are a few of my favorites:

#HelpPrintThrive

Traditional business models in the print industry may be in flux. But the folks behind this hashtag are absolutely determined to share advice to help printers grow their business.

#LeadershipChat

I have only recently discovered the conversation around this hashtag. But while fundamentals and principles may always stay the same, the subject of leadership is fascinating to me. For example, how will managers adjust to new generations that have grown up connected to their smartphones, their IM chats, and their social media profiles? Will they find a way to ban those from 9-5? Or perhaps, might they be able to put that knowledge to use to improve their companies?
