#bbcon Day 3 Social Snapshot

Yesterday was the final day of Blackbaud’s #bbcon conference in DC. As sessions were winding down and the exhibition hall was closing, we definitely saw fewer tweets. There were only 2,144 tweets mentioning #bbcon yesterday, but that brings the grand total of tweets from Sunday to Tuesday to over 8,500! Thanks again to Blackbaud for donating a $1/tweet to a local DC charity.

The speakers mentioned the most on Tuesday were @JimZBuildOn with 72 mentions during his keynote, @TedHart with 52 mentions and @billconnorscfre with 45 mentions during his #retrickygifts session.

At the last minute, Ted’s session was pushed back:

However not everyone got the memo:

Looks like many people enjoyed his session Online Strategies, Tools & Trade Secrets once it did take place, judging by the tweets.

By far the most tweeted session yesterday was #60tests60minutes with 236 tweets! There were many great takeaways from that session and sounds like everyone left ready to start A/B testing their emails, websites and direct mail strategies.

The most retweeted users were @MRCampaigns, @Scottgilman and @xocitl (who was our top tweeter yesterday) with 50 retweets, 42 and 41 respectively. Here’s one of the gems that @MRCampaigns shared during #60tests60mins:

Sounds like every had a great time, met some inspiring people and are ready to get back to their nonprofit ready to rock this week! We’d love to hear any takeaways you have from #bbcon. Let us know in the comments below!

  1. It’s great to see the organizations that are using Blackbaud tools are getting the attention from the conference. Great way to get in front of people.
