Jessica Staniforth Twitter Hour


In our latest #AthenaBizHour we were joined by Jess Staniforth of ATE Social Media. The Twitter Hour also coincided with the 10th Birthday Anniversary of Twitter launching. Below is a summary of some of the questions and tips Jess had for us;

To get us started Jess had scheduled a few key points

I’ve taken advantage of #Hootsuite & scheduled some #twittertips to come out during #AthenaBizHour later – that itself is a #twittertip

Jess ATE Social Tip 1 ResizeCan there be too many #tags in a tweet?

YES! I would recommend no more than 5 – make them count, don’t put them in just because…

What do you find is a good balance between content value and promotional tweets?

When I content plan I make sure no more than 2 of 5 tweets promotional – sell yourself by selling your knowledge

Jess ATE Social Tip 2How much of you material is retweets?

I keep tweeting & retweeting separate, do content plan, schedule my 3 tweets a day and then keep #TwitterLists to retweet

I love my work, what do you like about your work the most?

I LOVE to learn about other people, so getting to #tweet for them means I learn some interesting things

Jess ATE Social Tip 3Here are my tips for creating #content in #Twitter – if you get stuck have a read #blog #AthenaBizHour

Always comment on retweets or not?

No I don’t think it is necessary, unless it is something you really want to highlight or comment on, just #retweet

Jess ATE Social Tip 4#DidYouKnow – 80% of #twitter users do so on their mobile? One of the reasons you should have a mobile friendly website

#TwitterTip – Spend a few minutes when we’ve finished #AthenaBizHour to check the #hashtag & follow new people who have been here tonight

What Athena Members Say …

Nicky Fitzmaurice

"Athena Networking has been the making of me! I have made more friends and learnt more about business tools and networking strategy in the last year than I ever thought possible. Athena’s focus on training members to be the best that they can be, whilst in a supportive and nurturing environment, gave me the confidence to learn and grow which in turn allowed my business to do the same. It is this, that is the heart of Athena. No hard sell amongst the members, we encourage one another to help where we can. I always come away from a meeting inspired and bubbling with ideas on how to grow my business. It’s a fabulous way to live, learn and grow. Nicky Fitzmaurice

Selena Ludick

“The Athena network can be distinguished from any other networking group I attend. Its structure and form mean that members who attend are committed and dedicated to proactive networking which on turn achieves tangible results.  This benefits me and my firm,  in just a two  hour monthly meeting I have the opportunity to talk to other business women about me, my business and what I need and how I can be helped.  The environment for delivering this is focused and professional. As a result referrals are made and recommendations given which, for me achieves increased clients and in turn builds greater contacts.  As a busy business women Athena also provides a forum to connect with other business women on a social / friendship basis so “all work and no play does not make this Jill a dull girl” Athena motivates me, strengthens my vision, equips and endorses me but most of all provides the fuel every business women needs to keep raising her game and stepping up to the mark.”

Rosie Mortimer

Working mostly on my own, I really appreciate the positive camaraderie of the Athena women. Whatever need or concern one has, there is always someone able, and enthusiastically willing, to help with good advice. I find the interaction tremendously stimulating and enjoyable - and highly instructive. A wonderful group to see regularly, with excellent opportunities to meet other interesting and skilled women at training days. Thank you Athena!
