Last night I hosted a Speed Networking event on Google hangout, along with other Internet Marketers who hosted their own hangouts. The idea was pretty much the same as and ‘speed’ event you might have seen, people dropped in for a while then moved on to another hangout to see what was going on there.
It was a brilliantly popular event and my ‘room’ was pretty much full the whole time, ran over time by about a half hour because everyone could not get in when they wanted to earlier, and with one person staying for the whole hour because they found the topics so rivetting!
I based my hangout around Christmas wishes. I asked everyone who visited me what they would like to put on their Christmas wish list with regard to their business ideas, plans, needs and wants, and we would see if anyone in the group could help them out.
Many of the topics discussed were indeed things that were available within the group. Most really wanted help with specific things they struggled with, although one person asked for a tablet computer and another a Bamboo Pen! The tablet we could do nothing about but someone suggested a piece of software that does a similar job to a Bamboo Pen.
All in all everyone who visited my ‘room’ went away with something from Santa, in some cases an offer of help with a problem, in other cases an idea spawned from the opportunity to share and discuss their particular issues in an open forum with like minded people.
I got what I wanted too, someone is going to teach me how to add pictures to Facebook, something I have never been able to do!
