Building real online community engagement can be an exciting challenge. Considering the needs of the community as well as the needs of the organization or business, yet also being adaptable, letting the community grow organically and balancing social goals with social realities. The challenge gets even tougher when the organization is relatively small and one or maybe two people have the job of keeping everyone happy and growing organically while staying on goal and sane at the same time.
Fortunately, I have one of my all-time favorite community managers as our guest Tuesday, Megan Keane (AKA PenguinAsana). Megan is a problem solver and network builder with an extensive nonprofit background in community management, social media, and volunteer management. Working as NTEN‘s Membership Director and as a yoga instructor, she is passionate about combining her two careers into helping others embrace technology, yet find balance through mindfulness practices.[bctt tweet=”How to nurture online community mindfully. #mindfulsocial with @PenguinAsana Tues 10 AM PT.”]
How does this work?
A Twitter Chat is an open forum. I will ask questions around incorporating mindfulness practices into our work as marketers and how that affects and informs our work and relationships with our following. Any and all are welcome to join in and answer in your own way or ask your questions about mindfulness, marketing, or anything else that comes to mind. Your voice is as important as ours here. Be sure to tag everything with the hashtag #MindfulSocial so everyone sees your responses in the chat.
Never participated in a Tweet Chat?
No problem. All you need to do is follow @PenguinAsana and @jfouts. Then show up at 10 AM Pacific time on Twitter and follow the hashtag #MindfulSocial to watch live or tweet with us. Learn more with our guide to Twitter chats. Most important of all, have fun and maybe learn something new!
