Your event is something you want to be talked about by many, and everyone knows the best way to do that is with a Twitter wall. But what do you need to make sure you have the best social wall possible? Here, we have the four essential ingredients to ensure your Twitter wall is seen by and engaged with everyone!
Screening your Twitter Wall
The first thing, something we spoke more of in great detail last week, is how you will plan to screen your Twitter Wall. Where and how you display your screen is important for setting the overall atmosphere of your event. The size and circumstance if your event should determine your options. A big screen at a small event is highly unnecessary, but a small screen at a large event is unlikely to grab anyone’s attention. Be sure to take some time thinking about what kind of screening options you need for your event before you make any investments.
At any event, you will need a hashtag. Why? Because this is the key to how people find you through social media. A hashtag is a tool to spread your brand as far as possible, and by having one unique to your event, you can get more people talking. It should not be too long, but it should stand out and be easy to remember. Get your attendees using the hashtag to join in the conversation. What’s more, it will get non-attendees involved too!
You are likely to be busy during the event, so spending too much time on Twitter can interfere. Thanks to third-party applications such as Hootsuite, Buffer and Sprout Social, you can plan a series of tweets in advance. These tweets can be scheduled to post before, during and after the event, meaning you only need to focus on immediate social sharing! There are free versions of these apps, but if you don’t want to sign your business up for anything new, there’s always Tweetdeck. Tweetdeck is completely free, and you can add as many accounts as you’d like!
The internet has no filter, and anything you don’t want could slip through the cracks and onto your live screen. This is why moderation is needed for your Twitter wall. Luckily, you can achieve this with a Twitter Wall from Social Sticker. We offer complete moderation for your event so that no nasty words can make their way onto the screen for your attendees to see. You can also use it to keep the content relevant, so no spam tweets make their way through either. This s essential if you want your Twitter wall display to be interesting and worth looking at.
