When I started visiting events in Boston, there was always one guy who seemed to know everyone. Whether he was there in real life or joining the conversation on Twitter. It was obvious: he knows what is going on in Boston. I can’t recall where I read about him, but I guess I started following him on Twitter, because some blogger mentioned he was one of those entrepreneurs who really knows how to use social media. You might already know who I am talking about: Joselin Mane from BostonTweetup.com
Blogging for BostonTweetUp
Guess what I did, when Joselin was looking for help. I applied immediately. After my first meeting with Joselin, I felt energized. His mind is always full of ideas; he knows how to – and how not to! – organize a Tweetup; he has energy for 3 and is always willing to hear your opinion. In short, I really wanted to work with this inspiring guy.
So since a few months, I also blog about the events in and around Boston for BostonTweetup.com. For example, I covered the What not to web event organized by the MIT Forum, the Boston World Partnership Leaders Networking Reception and a Boston PHP Meetup. During those events, I noticed almost everybody knows BostonTweetup. Either from the MegaTweetup Joselin organized, the online event calendar or its Twitter feed. But next to promoting events and organizing a yearly record-breaking Tweetup, we also help organizers with their event planning and – maybe even more important – the way they can leverage social media before, during and after the event.
At the moment, we’re busy relaunching the website. The site got a new lay-out and includes episodes from BostonTweetup TV, event planning guides, reviews of events, networking tips plus information for venues, sponsors and others. A lot of this is already live, some we still need to work on. In the meanwhile, check it out yourself on BostonTweetup.com or watch this video interview that was taken with Joselin during the Inbound Marketing Summit with the Pulse Network.
