On Saturday, July 18, 2009 Trinity University welcomed approximately 150 people thirsty for Twitter knowledge. The good news is the thirst was quenched. The bad news is that we are hearing reports of our attendees being hungry – And that’s precisely what the organizers had in mind.

We hope that you will go out into the world of social media to explore, implement what you learned during our sessions and maybe even collaborate with the new friends and connections you made at TweetcampSA.

To help refresh your memory and so that you begin to gather some of the material YOU helped us create and collect during the event… A RECAP!

Sponsor Spotlight: Tweetcamp San Antonio goes to college at Trinity University

July 18, 2009 at 4:37 pm | Posted in Event News, San Antonio, Sponsor Spotlight, Sponsors | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Trinity-University-A0C2AF6FDisclaimer: I attended Trinity University from 2004 – 2008 to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Marketing.

Today, hundreds will arrive at Trinity University to attend the biggest social media event of its kind to take place in our city – Tweetcamp San Antonio.

This is not a mere coincidence.

When the organizers of Tweetcamp were searching for a venue we had a checklist, nay, a list of demands that had to be fulfilled if Tweetcamp was going to be the rock star event we had in mind.

Our venue had to be wired. Or should we say unwired? Wireless internet access was a must since we expected most, if not all, of our attendees to bring their laptops with them to tweet, blog, stream and browse the internet throughout the event. Trinity is one of Intel’s top 10 most unwired college campuses. Check!

Our venue had to help us showcase the best of our city. Trinity University is located just a few minutes south of the airport and a few minutes north of downtown San Antonio. The area is full of shops, parks, restaurants, museums and homes that are part quaint, part modern and entirely worthy of an afternoon walk. With recent extension of San Antonio River, the world-famous River Walk is now 1.5 miles closer to Trinity. It won’t be long before the final portion of the Museum Reach extension is complete and the University becomes part a project that will revitalize the city and help new and old San Antonio reconnect seamlessly.

Bonus point: Trinity’s campus is modern and gorgeous in and of itself. See for yourself.

Fun fact: I happened to be a student tour guide at Trinity and know that the color of the brick that makes up the façade of all the buildings on campus is not just red – it’s Trinity Red.

Our venue had to be inside the social media loop. Trinity University contacted the organizers to be the official host of Tweetcamp San Antonio via – you guessed it – Twitter. You can follow @Trinity_U on Twitter and find several Trinity administrators and staff on Twitter as well. The University is actively making conscious efforts to learn from others, share thoughts and information, reach out to their constituents and participate in conversations via social media. WIN.

Our venue had to be free. Along with our other sponsors, Trinity University is to thank for helping us make this a free event open to the public.

So you see, your Tweetcamp San Antonio organizers are pretty high maintenance. Fortunately, Trinity has not only lived up to everything we expected from our venue – it has gone above and beyond.

And on a final note, Tweetcamp San Antonio going to college at Trinity University is an event in and of itself. Conferences are often held at hotels, meeting rooms and other venues that have no connection to the topic at hand. Ours is not the case.

Social media has gone mainstream. There is no doubt about that. And tools like Twitter are forcing industries and institutions to reinvent themselves. I only really started to figure out what I wanted in terms of a career when I got to college. If higher education institutions are not tuned into social media and introducing it in the classroom by this point, they are failing to educate students about the context of the world today or prepare them for what the world may look like in the near future. But higher education institutions willing to take the plunge into social media despite the lack of structure, constant state of flux and the predominance of application over theory are the ones that will turn out professionals that are truly prepared to take on our reinvented industries and inherit the new world.

Sponsor Spotlight: Six Questions with Firecat Studio

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

In addition to listing them on our Sponsors page, TweetCampSA sponsors will also be featured on our blog so we can introduce you to the companies making TweetCampSA possible. Check them out and follow them on Twitter! TweetCampSA sponsors are the cutting-edge businesses in our community who understand, appreciate and make use of microblogging as part of their overall communications strategies.

firecatIntroducing TweetCampSA Sponsor Firecat Studio (questions answered by Susan Price, @FirecatSue)

1. How do you use microblogging?

Every which way! I’ve ridden technology trends my whole career and social media is the most exciting, society-transforming one yet.

I tweet a mix of business and personal stuff as @firecatsue, and conduct social media campaigns for a variety of clients. We focus on creating and maintaining relationships rather than doing heavy-duty marketing – and that approach has served us and our clients well.

An all-business stream gets boring, and an all-personal stream is boring, too — except to your significant other or your parole officer. Twitter is an excellent way to get to know more people, and to get to know the ones you already know, better. Over time, you learn what makes people tick, what excites them, and what they have in common with you. That magic mix of personal and business flavor is something you learn over time. I don’t always get it pitch-perfect; no one does. But that’s the goal.

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

Our participation in social media causes us to be more human, honest and transparent in our dealings with clients, colleagues and competitors – and in turn, they’re more human and open with us. Their needs are more real, their opinions matter more to us. Everything moves faster. It’s fabulous! We’re actively creating the world I want to live in, every day.

Because we specialize in online strategy, we watch trends in communications technology very closely. As with computers, desktop publishing and the web, early adopters and risk takers are rewarded with strategic advantages. We’ve always spent a good bit of time in research, but with the explosion of tools and techniques, an even greater percentage of our time has to be devoted to R&D, simply to keep up. We’ve created some events that allow us to mix marketing with this “keeping up” – participating in Social Media Club, sponsoring Coworking and brownbag lunches.

Social media and microblogging have become a standard part of our online presence and marketing mix. We think a lot more about mobile access.

Because there are NO Twitter holidays, we’ve had to adapt some of our processes and schedules to accommodate more evening and weekend business activity.

Twitter and other social media tools have become very important to the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) projects we handle.

And the websites we design have become more “social media” in nature, generally built on a content management system (CMS) to enable that all-important two-way dialog. Our design templates include Twitter feeds and Share This! widgets.

3. What makes you follow some people/businesses over others?

I autofollow, and then vet followers periodically throughout the week. I look first at the quality of tweets. Are they helping people? Are they engaging in dialog? If self-promos predominate their stream, I unfollow. If they’re heavily reliant on quotes of others or retweets, I unfollow if there’s no originality or value-add.

Although I almost never exclude someone on the basis of their twitter “handle,” sometimes those trigger an unfollow; e.g., @godofmoney or @affiliatewhore.

I used to look at followers/following ratio, but find that’s less helpful than it used to be. If you follow 10,000 people, you can’t be listening to them all, so there’s no special merit in maintaining a 1:1 balance over a certain number of followers.

4. Who would you like to see on Twitter who isn’t there already?

Wise elders! I just signed up to teach a seniors class in social media; I find their voices missing for the most part. My web industry gurus were all early adopters, so they’re in good supply. My creativity needs constant restocking, so I love seeing little inspirational bursts from pure creatives — songwriters, musicians, designers, artists, directors, comedians. Is Matt Groening on Twitter? Robin Williams? Weird Al? I’m happy to be following John Cleese. Is Terry Gilliam tweeting yet? And kids. I’d love to see kid drawings, or hear kid voices.

5. Why are you sponsoring TweetCampSA?

As we integrate social media into our everyday lives, it can be scary and even disruptive. We’re evolving the “norms” of the new online society as we go, and I prefer being purposeful about that — intentionally creating the culture the way I want it to be. Welcoming, inclusive, honest, supportive. Also, it’s hard to keep up, so I like meeting and comparing notes with other smart people.

I’ve learned a ton of vital information from every single San Antonio “Camp” event so far, from PodCamp to BarCamp to FreelanceCamp to AccessCamp to GreenCamp.

6. Give us an elevator pitch about your business.

Firecat Studio helps your business leverage new and emerging technologies. We design websites, brand identities, eMail and eNews campaigns, social media strategies, as well as print and video pieces. We excel at the strategy work that ties marketing efforts together and creates synergy between them.

Like our name suggests, working with Firecat is a curiously transformative experience. We examine your business and your goals holistically to help you transform and adapt, burn away the nonessential and drive the business you want. We work with you and your staff to create sustainable, positive business processes that continue to deliver value for years to come.

VideoPublishing LogoIntroducing TweetCampSA Sponsor VideoPublishing.com (questions answered by Andrew Trickett, managing director of VideoPublishing.com, @videopublishing)

1. How do you use microblogging?

We try to use it to establish a “connection” with our customers and partners. We’re on Twitter, Facebook and WordPress.

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

We’re fairly new at it and need to get more active. But we have already seen that it develops a sense of “intimacy” with clients. The unexpected benefit is how excited employees get when they see us post. They love seeing the information and discussions too.

3. Who are your fave follows?

As a business, we like to follow @fredwilson. He is a venture capitalist who often gives fantastic insights on technology business…and often, life.

4. What’s your criteria for RTs?

We try to be somewhat selective, picking things that we think will be of use to a lot of our followers and *somewhat* related to our business, especially because we’re more of a B2B company than B2C.

5. Why are you sponsoring TweetCampSA?

Because we believe in the idea and we’re reaching the thought leaders of the San Antonio online industry

6. Give us an elevator pitch about your business.

We provide a hosted system for online videos that will be used for professional purposes, such as company promotions and higher-end filmmaking. We have a lot of important capabilities for video professionals that you won’t get with “the usual suspects.” We also do live video, streaming music, and can digitize old film.

…not a big surprise after all: #TweetCampSA.

OK. It’s pretty predictable. But the #TweetCampSA hashtag is more than just a way for us to follow each other’s tweets at the event. By using the official #TweetCampSA hashtag on Twitter and simply TweetcampSA (no pound sign) to tag photos, videos, blogs posts and other online cotent across multiple social media networks and channels like Flickr, YouTube, Ustream, WordPress, etc. you can help the event live on long after it’s over.

So much rich, helpful, valuable and usable information will be shared at TweetCampSA. The #TweetCampSA Twitter hashtag and TweetcampSA tag will make it easy for you to find and refer to that content if and when you need it.

Use it well. Use it often. Include it in any  TweetCampSA info and content you reference or create across your social networks.

#TweetCampSA, the official Twitter hashtag of Tweetcamp San Antonio!

TweetcampSA, everywhere else.

Sponsor Spotlight: Six Questions with the San Antonio Express-News

Check them out and follow them on Twitter! TweetCampSA sponsors are the cutting-edge businesses in our community who understand, appreciate and make use of microblogging as part of their overall communications strategies.

Introducing TweetCampSA Sponsor San Antonio Express-News / mySA.com (questions answered by Eric Braun, director of digital media at MySA.com – @ebraun and @mySA).

1. How does the Express-News use microblogging?

We use it in several different ways. We push breaking news stories and weather forecasts out on a regular basis, but we don’t find that that’s really a huge traffic driver for us. It does drive a few extra clicks but it’s not a game-changer unless it’s something that takes off across networks. We really use it more as a CRM tool. It’s been much more about connecting with our readers and developing relationships with them. It provides both instant feedback and helps reporters develop sources. We also use Twitter as a way to aggregate sources of information quickly. During the swine flu outbreak we used CoverItLive to aggregate feeds from official and non-official sources including our medical bloggers.

2. How has microblogging changed your business?

Twitter has been the first application that has really grabbed the imagination of the newsroom. I don’t recall any social interaction tool that has been more widely accepted in newsrooms, not just at the Express-News but across the industry. Story comments and forums have always been something reporters have hesitated jumping into, but because the dialogue on twitter is more controlled, civil and ultimately useful, our staff has engaged with it in a big way. You can see by our staff list of twitter accounts how true that is.

3. What makes you follow some people/businesses over others?

I avoid twitterfeeds and people who promise to make me rich. I generally avoid a lot of rough language because we like to break tweets out in various places on the site.

4. Who would you like to see on Twitter who isn’t there already?

The rest of our staff who isn’t using twitter yet. I’d like to see more local politicians use it beyond campaign seasons. Maybe after this election they will. I’d also like to see more restaurants and clubs talking about specials and schedules. Half of the time when I think of someone I’d like to see on twitter, I search for them and they are there.

5. Why is the Express-News sponsoring TweetCampSA?

We’re always interested in learning best practices on how to use Twitter and other social media apps. We also desire to be a part of the social media community in San Antonio because it’s good for us as a business to be connected to people who are making a difference in our city. These things are hard to make happen without funding, so we’re happy to help make it work.

6. Give us an elevator pitch about the Express-News.

The E-N and mySA.com combined have third deepest market penetration of any newspaper in the country, we have the largest newsroom in town by a large margin and day in and day out provide relevant, important content on a variety of platforms. Not only do we provide a wealth of content day in and day out but we are also interested in helping our community reach broader audiences. Users can contribute blogs, tweets, photos, videos and stories to our site to tell their stories and deliver their messages. Of course, selling advertisements is another way we help our customers reach a broad audience and we have a lot of very bright sales people who can help plan an ad campaign on our sites and help devise a search engine marketing campaign.

Attendee spotlight: 10 questions with Candy Beauchamp

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Every Tuesday and Friday, we will feature a TweetCamp San Antonio attendee on the blog to give you an insight of the diverse group of people that have come together thanks to the micro-blogging services that are reinventing the way we do communications. Feel free to follow these people and get a head start on TweetCamp San Antonio. If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to RSVP!

Introducing TweetCamp attendee @candieb

candieb

1. Who are you?

Candy Beauchamp in Austin, TX – @candieb on Twitter – more info about me is here

2. What do you do?

I’m a virtual bookkeeper, virtual assistant (VA) and technology & gadget geek.

3. Why social media?

Why not? For me because I work from home with my husband full time, it’s a great outlet, it is my water cooler, where I can breeze by, see what my friends are saying and respond. It’s also another way to get to know other people that I might not have had the opportunity to otherwise.

4. How do you use micro-blobbing services like Twitter for work/business?

My main account, @candieb, is a mixture of personal and business. I’d say more than 90 percent  is personal. I do tweet about work, but let’s face it, bookkeeping isn’t all that fascinating to the average person – contrary to popular belief most of us bookkeepers don’t sit around talking about our most fabulous journal entry EVER either 😉 I also run @2minuteswithava, which is basically my little side project for virtual assistants to ask questions of a seasoned VA.

5. How, if at all, do you use microbbling services for personal purposes?

I keep in touch with my local friends, as well as those far away. A good deal of my book geek friends are on there as well as friends further away. It’s also a great place to vent out the latest weirdness that goes on in my house or with my kids. Again, it’s a great way to connect with others.

6. Tell us a Twitter success story

While I don’t use Twitter specifically for business, I’m sure anyone can tell by looking at my stream for a day or two that I am a bookkeeper. I’ve been lucky in that people will see someone that needs a bookkeeper and either tell me or tell that person to contact me. It’s kind of a weird “twitter word of mouth” thing going on for me. It’s great, even if a little weird at first. It’s hard to sell someone on yourself in 140 characters, but so far, I’ve managed to get several clients from Twitter – without really trying too hard.

7. Twitter FAIL story? Lesson (s) learned?

I live my life pretty transparently. Sometimes I have to remind myself to re-read before hitting that “post” button 🙂 There have been a few times that I’ve said something and wondered if I should take it back. But, at the end of the day… I am who I am. I do try to remember that “type, read, re-read, then send” philosophy.

8. [Cheating, three-part question] Your favorite Twitter follows? Why do you follow them? Have you ever met them?

@statesman – what is there not to love about Austin’s newspaper being online? I also adore that they take time to reply and actually read their tweets and replies. They aren’t just a mindless stream like some of the news tweeters I’ve seen. Fabulous use of Twitter, in my opinion.
@VAnetworking – not only a great resource for VAs, but also one great lady. Tawnya isn’t all business all the time and I like that. I was fortunate enough to meet Tawnya at a VA Summit and we hit it off in person just as well as hit it off online.
@linuxjournal – These folks are not only a long-time client of mine, they are funny. This is the main account for them. They feed my inner geek well and make an effort to respond to their replies and build a sense of community for the Linux folks online through Twitter.

9. Your Twitter pet peeve?

Auto DMs

10. Any additional words of wisdom?

I think the biggest piece of advice someone gave me, and one I try to remember everyday is that social media should be fun. If it starts to be not so fun, I turn it off for a while.
