Are you looking to take your business to the next level
but can't seem to connect the dots?

Are you tired of posting blogs with a lacklustre response? Sending out tweets to crickets? Having Facebook let you down... again?

Sound familiar?

Believe me, we've all been there. It is because of those exact situations that we started presenting Tweetstock seven years ago. Back then, we didn't know everything. What we did know is that we could bring in industry leaders, the best speakers to reach business people, people just like us, and load up with enough ammunition to go out and take on the wild online world.

June 18th will mark our 11th Tweetstock, and once again, we have a great line-up of speakers just for you.

We Answer Your Questions

"Where, and how, do I get started with social media?" & "How do I use this stuff to actually grow my business" are the two questions we hear most often. And we know for a fact that the answers can be found at a Tweetstock event. It’s become a "learn how to get 'er done and have some fun" kinda social media conference.

Are you Online?

Online communication is part of our day-to-day life. It's no longer about if (or when) you will start using it, but about how you can cut through all the noise and communicate more effectively with your customers and followers. Knowing how to communicate properly will not only make you a better business person, but it will also increase your sales; and more and more sales equals more money in your pockets. .

No Mumbo Jumbo

At Tweetstock we don’t do sales pitches and we don’t do highfalutin strategic mumbo-jumbo, either. We deliver the real goods, from people who have been there (and done that) before; who have actually started and grown a business online. And they'll tell you how to do it, regardless of what “business” means to you.

Who Is Tweetstock For?

Real people just like you.

Small Business Owners

Your customers are your best salespeople. If they are happy with your products and services, they tell their friends. No question, word of mouth is the best and most powerful kind of marketing there is. The problem is; it takes time. All of that changes when you become a Social Small Business. With Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other online tools, you can accomplish in days what used to take years. These same tools can also undo in seconds what has taken years to build. At Tweetstock, you’ll learn how to do it right from real small business owners like you who have figured it out the hard way, and are willing to share their knowhow.

Entrepreneurs and Professionals

Starting and running a business or practice can be lonely and frustrating. Win or lose, each and every day it’s all on you. There’s never enough time, tools, money and resources. That’s the way it’s always been. At least it was until now. At Tweetstock real people, who are starting and growing real businesses, competing with corporate giants, and winning using social media, will explain how they are doing it and how you can too.

Not-for-Profits and Charities

There was a time when only the largest not-for-profits and charities, with the deepest pockets, could afford to broadcast their message out on TV and radio to a mass audience. The little dedicated team of 4 or 5 people, a co-op student and a shoestring budget, trying to save or bring beauty to the world, didn’t stand a chance of getting noticed. Not anymore. At Tweetstock, you’ll hear first-hand how to convert your supporters and donors into an army of passionate and committed do-gooders!


If you want to meet and make connections with exciting people who are starters and doers like yourself; if you want to learn from some of the best and brightest trailblazers on the Internet today; if you want to experience the peace, love and tweets of a real Tweetstock Social Media Rock Conference; then you need to be there!
