tweet chatsJuly 14, 2015: When I started working at SEMrush earlier this year, I had a positive reputation for content management and SEO copy writing in my niche. With little recognition in the digital marketing industry, I needed to form connections quickly and establish my own voice in the field. Participating in Twitter chats has been integral to my growth as a digital marketer.

Hanging out on Twitter is as natural as chatting about a fun topic. There’s no major time commitment and it’s a great way to immerse myself in the zeitgeist of my industry without leaving the office. Plus, I found helpful digital marketing tools and some of the best writers who have appeared on the blogs I manage.

I attend a few of these chats regularly:

1. #cochat

  • Hosted by: CoSchedule (@CoSchedule)
  • Time: Thursdays, 4 PM ET
  • Focus: The focus in #cochat is content marketing, content writing, organization and social media marketing.

  • Crowd: #cochat draws a really friendly and supportive crowd. The chat leader always starts by asking everyone to introduce themselves.
