The Top Tweets From the World’s Largest Webinar (#WLW14): The Good, The Bad and The Funny

Over 34,000 people signed up for the world’s largest webinar (#WLW14) yesterday breaking the previous record of 10,899 participants that was set by Hubspot in 2011. Some are calling it the best social media webinar of all time but I would disagree with that statement.

Here’s why.

The webinar failed to produce information that can’t already be found via a couple Google searches. Yes. I said it. The information was basic. And I wasn’t the only person who thought this.

Some examples of information that was shared by Hubspot, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter representatives included:

Twitter For Brands

  • Give people a compelling reason to follow your account
  • Include a URL to an important landing page
  • Feature your logo and visual elements to describe your company
  • Facebook Pages

  • Fill out complete and accurate information about your business
  • Have great cover pictures and cover photo
  • Test new types of content
  • Spend time in your Page insights to get info about your posts, audience and traffic
  • Use newsfeed advertising
  • LinkedIn Company Page

  • Write a company page that is informative and engaging
  • Use keywords that are relevant to your business to be found in search results
  • Use eye-catching images
  • Invite your company network to follow
  • Engage with your followers by posting updates
  • Some of you may find this information useful, but these types of tips are already attached to most social media marketer’s tool belts. We are already doing these things. Well, I guess at least most of us are.

    So let’s take a look at what other’s where saying during the webinar. Here are the top tweets from the world’s largest webinar yesterday:
