She blogs at Speaking about Presenting and has written a free eBook “ How to Present with Twitter and Other Backchannels.&# Follow her on Twitter. Pioneer presenters are using social media to engage their audience and extend the reach of their ideas. Twitter Twitter , Facebook Facebook , and numerous custom online tools allow presenters to create a backchannel for their audience’s ideas and feedback. This two-way engagement can enrich the audience’s understanding as well as the presenter’s effectiveness. Here are 9 tips for improving your presentations with social media. 1. Build Relationships With Your Audience Some of the most proactive use of social media in presentations is seen not in conferences, but in higher education. Sugato Chakravarty teaches a personal finance class at Purdue University. Professor Chakravarty encourages students to comment, critique and ask questions during his lectures. But they’re not doing it out loud — they’re using Hotseat , a tool developed at the university which allows them to comment via Twitter, Facebook or text message. “I’ve seen a huge increase in interaction. I believe it adds a degree of richness to what’s being taught,&# Chakravarty says. Meeting planners and conference organizers are also using online community tools to help conference attendees network both pre and post-event. Use these tools to get to know your audience and find out what they want from your presentation. There’s also an extra benefit. Laura Bergells , an experienced backchannel presenter explains that “it’s harder to snark at a presenter when you’ve previously created an online relationship! Connecting with an audience on Twitter first can turn an anonymous audience into a more friendly, interactive audience.” 2. Recruit a Backchannel Team Social media can enrich your presentation, but it’s an extra ball to juggle. Ask a colleague to monitor the backchannel during your presentation. Let them know what type of feedback they should pass on to you. Assign a second colleague to answer questions and add links to additional resources. Chakravarty has two teaching assistants who enrich his lectures by doing this. 3. Create a Separate Hashtag Make it easy for your audience to identify the backchannel for your presentation by creating an additional hashtag to isolate it. This can clarify which direction information flows between the presenter and audience. Because Twitter hashtag searches only go back 6-10 days, create an archive with Twapper Keeper to ensure the Twitter backchannel will be available later. 4. Welcome the Backchannel Cliff Atkinson emphasizes the value of making the backchannel welcome in his book “ The Backchannel: How Audiences are Using Twitter and Social Media and Changing Presentations Forever.&# Use a slide to display your Twitter username, any other social media handles, and the hashtags for your presentation. “This provides a visual cue that you welcome the backchannel from the start,&# says Atkinson. 5. Reach Out to Your Virtual Audience Give your virtual audience a heads up that your presentation is about to start. Richard Wiseman , a British psychologist and magician lets his Twitter followers know whenever he’s about to present. If you’re presenting at a conference, many people will already be following the conference hashtag on Twitter. Amongst them will be fellow experts whose contributions will enrich your presentation. Let them know that you welcome their participation. 6. Make Your Key Points Tweetable Make your presentation social media-friendly by expressing each of your main points as a tweetbite. Phrases from Scott Berkun’s keynote at the Web 2.0 Expo were retweeted many times thanks to their brevity and clarity. Ensure your tweetbites are easily retweetable by allowing space for your username. If you’re using slides, display your tweetbites. You can also ‘program’ both PowerPoint and Keynote to publish tweets when you click onto a slide using clever add-ins like Slide Tweet for PowerPoint, and Keynote Tweet for Keynote. 7. Audience Participation Through Social Media The game-changing aspect of the backchannel is that audience participation now scales. What was previously only possible in physically-present small groups is now possible with thousands scattered across the globe. The physical delivery of your presentation is just the nucleus. Audience members don’t need to have a Twitter account to take part in a backchannel. If you use a backchannel tool such as TodaysMeet or Backnoise , participants can just start typing. You can also poll an audience without the need of expensive handhelds. Check out the PowerPoint Twitter tools developed by Timo Elliot of SAPWeb2.0 and PollEverywhere. 8. Display the Backchannel When You Want to Focus on It There’s been a debate around the display of the backchannel as a result of Dana Boyd’s presentation meltdown at the Web 2.0 Expo. The solution is simple – only display the backchannel when you want your audience to focus on it. Displaying the backchannel is useful when you’re answering questions submitted via social media. If you’re not focused on the backchannel, don’t display it. It will just be a distraction to those who want to pay attention to you. 9. Learn From the Backchannel Enrich your future presentations by analyzing the blow-by-blow account of how your presentation was received. The feedback is likely to be more genuine and detailed than the typical conference evaluation form. In your next presentation, drop what fell flat, clarify areas of confusion, and capitalize on what resonated most with your audience.

I agree that there's a negative perception of the impact of social media on presenting. But social media is a great tool to encourage audience engagement. Olivia paramendra Also, I say, conclude with a blog post later that day or the day after but not too much later. [link] Great blog post. Great tips. Olivia Mitchell Hi Paramendra Great idea - all part of starting to think of a presentation as just one part of building a relationship with your audience. This new way of thinking is covered very well in Cliff Atkinson's book. Olivia Benn good and informative post!! I was really looking for such info. thanks for sharing info. [link] JeffHurt Olivia: Excellent tips and thanks for sharing them! Audience engagement is so important and one of the most overlooked and forgotten components to successful presentations. I'd add consider using Internet radio to do a pre-event interview of the speaker and post as a podcast or Mp3. Then follow the presentation with a post-event Internet radio podcast/Mp3 of some of the attendees. If you have a video camera, film attendees talking about the content and post online. Getting attendees to talk about the presentation, repeat the highpoints and share their insights helps in the learning process and memory retention as well. Oh, and thanks for the link love. :) Olivia Mitchell Great ideas Jeff - as always! Olivia David Hauser Great set of tips and love the tools for putting content out on Twitter based on the slides you click through. It is amazing how few speakers make use of this valuable feedback even after they talk. In my next talk I will think about how I can best use these tips, thanks. Brent Harrison Great points. I saw some these things back in May at the #140tc Twitter Conference in Mountain View. Here is my blog post noting how I thought Twitter would transform the conference landscape: [link] Olivia Mitchell Love your post Brent.
