Best Hashtag Event Solution: Write Compelling Copy

  • Titles: create titles for people. Wine industry example- “Purple Elixer Fanatics”; “Grape Groupies”; “Bodyguards to the Vine” By creating a catchy title with personality, you embody what people want to be known for on Twitter
  • Reasons: create copy that describes the reason someone should follow. Wine industry example- “Vine Pro’s Prose” aka a great wine journalist or blogger; “Wine Ambassadors”; “Vine knowledge & patience”
  • Single Recommendations: the most powerful strategy is to create a recommendation for one vital and important contact you wish to make. Wine industry example- “@ChefChiarello innovative and rustic cuisine that makes a statement, sets the tone, satisfies the soul #FollowFriday (link)”
