PPC Chat was started by Matt Umbro in 2011 on Twitter. Get the history of the chat here.
Matt stepped away from PPC Chat in 2018 and it was taken over initially by a group of regular PPC Chatters (see the Who Is Behind PPC Chat page for more on the group). Eventually, Julie Friedman Bacchini took over as the Managing Director of PPC Chat and created an LLC for the entity.
The Twitter based community is active all the time on the #ppcchat hashtag and Julie hosts weekly Twitter chats on Tuesdays at 12:00 PM EST. In the spring of 2021 audio versions of the chat were added. Initially taking place on Clubhouse, the chats have shifted back to Twitter, using its audio capabilities in Twitter Spaces. Audio PPC Chats take place on Fridays at 12:00 PM EST.
Anyone can participate in the Twitter or Twitter Spaces chats!
