Blogger Chat on Wednesday

Posted by Brad J. Ward | Posted in Blogging, Flip Ultra, Recruitment | Posted on 01-28-2008


Just a heads up – I’m hosting a chat on Wednesday from 7-9pm starring the infamous Butler Bloggers (at least that’s what they say). If you want to lurk and see what kind of questions are being asked, leave a comment and I’ll send you the invite. We invited 25K students in hopes of a 1% success rate. Going to have the Flip Ultra there and upload videos of the Bloggers chatting with students as we go, so that should be fun.

What software are you using to host the chat?

Jamie – we use Chat University/Hobsons. It’s pretty expensive ($~2000/yr), so I think we’ll probably drop it once the contract is up.

How’d the chat go?! Other than computer shortages of course.. but how was the turn out? Did you get your 1% or did you get even more than that?

We ended up with 95 unique logins, which was pretty successful. This one chat makes up 10% of total logins for all chats dating back to 2004, so that’s not bad at all. :) 1% would have been around 110, so we were close to the mark.

Brad, I agree, I thought it was a wonderful turnout. Loved how you were able to use the Flip and post the youtube videos in almost real time to the conversation. Very Nice..

Not bad at all. Only 15 off. If you would have told me I would have logged in a prospective student (since I may attend here for my MBA)… not sure if it would have been legit or not, but would have been 96 instead of 95 :)
