Jacob: Hi, this is Jacob Sapochnick with the Enchanting Lawyer Podcast. Welcome to our show. Today, I have an international guest on our show. Her name is Samantha Kelly. She is known as the Twitter Goddess in Ireland. I’m very, very excited to have her on the show.
Samantha is a mom of two beautiful girls. She was a business owner. She started using Twitter as part of her marketing strategy and discovered, to her delight, that she was a bit of a genius, of a wiz.
Samantha is passionate about assisting others to get on and use Twitter as a fantastic marketing tool to show off what you do, what you can do. She won the #Tweetieinspire award on Oct. 2nd. RaboTweetie award as well in Ireland.
Samantha is the founder of the #IrishBizParty which is an increasingly popular event on Twitter which trends every Wednesday night to 11PM on Twitter. She started it out of frustration one night just for fun and then it took off. She recently wrote a book about her success on Twitter.
Samantha, I’m very happy and excited that you are on our show. Welcome.
Samantha: Hi. Thanks for having me. This is cool.
Jacob: I just want to tell our audience that — I want to apologize for the quality of the audio today. Usually we have a better sound because I’m actually recording it form Social Media Day in San Diego. I’m at the event right now and this is really cool because I’m here in San Diego and Samantha is in Ireland and this is Social Media Day.
Jacob: What a better guest we can have for somebody who is such a great Twitter user. Samantha, I’m so excited.
Samantha: This is exactly what social media is all about; the fact that we connected on Twitter and now we’re doing this interview. It’s just perfect example of what can happen like two people in two totally different countries that would never, ever, ever have met probably.
