Vicky H explains it this way:
The virtual conference at it’s most simplistic sense is a conversation between you and the attendees in the comment box. The attendees post their questions in the comments and you post your answers in the comments. This is very similar to Open Mic.
2. SBBuzz on Twitter
Here’s the scoop from our friend Michelle Riggen-Ransom:
We’re very excited about a fun new Twitter project we’ve schemed up called SBBuzz. Similar to format to Sarah Evans’ popular #journchat sessions, we’ll be using Twitter to enable an organized, open weekly discussion between small business owners, techies, social media folks — really anyone who is interested in learning more about how small businesses can use some of the new technologies out there to promote and grow their business.
We’d love it if you could help us get the word out, or even join us tomorrow on Twitter from 8pm-10pm EST (follow us on Twitter @sbbuzz and hashtag is #sbbuzz) More information can be found on our project site: http://sbbuzz.biz/
To make it easy, we’ve even written a pitch in 140 characters – feel free to share!
“Come join innovative small business owners discussing how to make technology work for business http://sbbuzz.biz“
Feel free to write us if you have any questions. And thanks for being so supportive of our small business over the past year. We look forward to helping other small business owners join the conversation — it’s too much fun to miss!
