A Twitter Chat is kind of like a cocktail party—except instead of alcohol and a fancy dress, all you need is a Twitter account and a hashtag. Still, as with any other party, if you want yours to be successful, you'll need to do a little thinking and planning.

In this Take 10, Verónica Maria Jarski takes you through the eight essential ingredients of a rockin' good Twitter chat. She walks you through every step of the planning process from choosing a theme and a venue to selecting the most appropriate "party time" and sending out invites. Plus, she gives you some tips on being a fantastic host and offers ideas for swag.


Verónica Maria Jarski has more than 15 years of writing and editing experience. Her current mission is to capture the story, both as a MarketingProfs senior content writer and the editor of the Daily Fix blog. She also is the content producer of the Take 10 series.
