Analyst Relations Chat

[tweetmeme source=”loudyoutloud” only_single=false]

As most of you know, I strongly believe Twitter is one of the next big social media channels for creating buzz about hot topics.

Why many people (business and personal) still doubt the actual and relevant impact of social media, I believe conversations, dialogues, stories and relationships are built leveraging powerful social media dynamics.

As most of you know, I’m a big advocate of going “outside the box” and creating new relationships inside and outside the telecom, analyst relations and PR industries.

So I came up with an idea that was germinated from conversations I have a had with many PR professionals.

I started an analyst relations chat called #archat on Twitter with a friend of mine, Fred McClimans.  This is  a site for analyst relations, analysts and key influencers to come together to express their opinions about the way to improve the analyst ecosystem through best practice approaches, relationship-building techniques, corporate pitches, etc., etc.

Our Twitter chat community is growing into a “viral” dynamo with analysts, marketing, PR and AR professionals talking about it.

I hope to build similar communities like this on other social media sites, including Facebook, LinkedIn, and Yammer over the next year.
