Whether you run a PPC management agency, do PPC for an agency, in-house, on the side for Uncle John’s business, or for your own business, you may have heard of the PPCchat hashtag. You can find us tweeting their all week long, but the flood of tweets starts at Noon Eastern Time on Tuesdays. For those of you on the fence about the value of joining the PPCchat community, this one’s for you.
Top 10 Reasons To Join PPCChat
10.) Free stuff. Who doesn’t like that price? Everything you in PPCchat is free. I guess you could say you have to pay for internet service, your computer, and your time, but that isn’t much!
9.) Connections. Twitter is a great way to build relationships with other industry experts. I can’t list all of the ways that can be a good thing for you. It is a networking thing. Don’t understand the power of networking? Well then, you will probably never get the value of connecting with people on PPCchat.
8.) Knowledge. Knowledge is power. The people in the PPCchat community are not afraid to share their knowledge.
7.) Show off. It is a great platform for really showing the world what you know about PPC.
6.) Get help! Just ask your questions on Twitter with #PPCchat and answers will start rolling in. Get virtually immediate answers to questions almost anytime, day or night, from industry experts. Stumped on a PPC issue?
5.) Conference friends. Going to a PPC conference this year? Chances are you will find other PPCchat twitter friends there. You can set plans using the hashtag to meet them in person.

4.) Training. Are you trying to help someone get up to speed on all things PPC? Tell them about our hashtag! The will learn tons of things you may not have thought to teach them about.
NOTE: I say “our” hashtag because I feel like it is definitely something built up and made worthwhile because of the powerful and helpful community, but I need to give credit where credit is due. @Matt_Umbro is the founder of #PPCchat and he is the glue of the community. Thanks Matt!
3.) Stream caps. Do you have a meeting during PPCchat? 12 PM Eastern on Tuesday is great for people on the east coast, but in the Rocky Mountains that is smack dab in the middle of the morning at 10 AM! It happens to me all too often. Each week you can get a weekly re-cap of the chat on PPCchat.co.
2.) Share your content. Have you written a stellar post about PPC on your blog or as a guest blogger? PPCchatters love a good quick read. Share it and they may just share or blog about it later and link back to you. For those unfamiliar with SEO, that’s a good thing.
WARNING: Don’t spam the hashtag. Don’t just share job postings. Don’t just share links to your blog posts. Don’t share irrelevant content. Don’t just take, take, take from the community.
1.) The laughs! We like to think we are pretty funny on #PPCchat.
Come join! The things you will learn will blow your mind, and the laughs are the icing on the cake. I know there are a lot more than 10 reasons to join PPCchat. Help me make the list better by adding it to the comments. If it is a good one, I’ll add it to the list!
