After the official launch of #EBHour by David Ruddle, thebestof Eastbourneat the recent #EBtweetup event attended by Stephen Lloyd MP, and Katy Bourne, Sussex Police Crime Commissioner, #EBhour got underway for the first time last night 11th September.
Scheduled to run from 20:00 – 21:00, 45 local businesses / contributors joined in the conversation which was hosted by me, Mina of Ditzy Media.
So 45 contributors resulted in 444 tweets being sent during #EBHour which led to a reach of over 67,000 and 806,000+ timeline deliveries – not bad for the first night!
#EBHour has been set up to provide theEastbournecommunity with a weekly online forum, for businesses and individuals that want to network online. Chat Hours are supportive forums designed to encourage relationships to build online which hopefully become meaningful and beneficial offline.
Continued promotion through established business and community networks should ensure it’s growth and success. If you missed the first night be sure not to miss it again.
#SussexHour - the chat hour for Sussex to connect
The original chat our for the Sussex region, #SussexHour has been going for year and has been hosted since it’s inception by Carole Manley.
Carole has done a fabulous job of growing and religiously hosting #SussexHour which has become a powerful broadcast and online networking hour for the region.
#SussexHour runs every Thursday night 20:30-21:30
After a long time at the helm, Carole is handing over the hosting of #SussexHour to me. Quite an honor and responsibility but I am delighted to have this opportunity and only hope I can follow in Carole’s outstanding footsteps to continue to foster a positive and dynamic network which benefits so many across the reason
Double hosting means, a tweak to the schedule for #EBHour!
As I quickly learnt last night, hosting 45 contributors and then having a further 100 join in at 8.30 was quite an experience – and that was with Carole hosting #SussexHour. For this reason, #EBHour will move to begin at 7.30pm from next week 18/9/14
Please note the new time and that #SussexHour remains at 20:30 as always
