Who can host an AMA Event ?
Anyone with something to say or share can host an AMA Event!
The only thing we ask is that, in keeping with our beliefs that an AMA Event should be informative, educational and even entertaining, but never condescending or critical to guests. If you are not sure about how to create your AMA or how to get the best out of it contact our team here.

How do I get started?
Whether you’ve joined as a Host or a guest – you may eventually want to be both – we recommend your profile includes a short bio, as well as a sampling of your professional and educational background. This information allows other AMA Event guests to appreciate your knowledge and experience in one or more subject areas. Check out this great Host profile to give you an idea.
Now that you are ready to create your AMA, click the "Create AMA" button top left and go ahead! Here is a short video that can help.
Here are some tips and good practices
Promoting your AMA
Now that your AMA is perfect we can start promoting it! You should also get involved in promoting your AMA as well - the more questions, the better the experience. Some ways you can help on that:
How can I edit my AMA Event?
If you need to edit your AMA make sure you are logged in, go to your AMA from Profile (top right of the screen, right next to the "Create AMA" button), once you have your profile open click the "AMA" tab then click on the AMA you want to edit. Once you have the AMA page open, click the 3 dots next to the AMA timer/title and from the drop down that will appear pick the "Edit" option. This is where you can adjust the start and end date of your AMA, edit the title or description, add or remove images and links.
How much does it cost to host an AMA Event?
It is free to host an AMA and to participate on other AMAs on the site.
What topics are allowed?
The possibilities are endless. You can choose something which you know a lot about as a professional, a hobby of yours, a topic that you are passionate about or you can promote - your company, new book, blog, product.
Simply put, your topic should be something that you know thoroughly and feel is important to you.
You can also host an AMA that is based upon an interesting experience you’ve had or an event you attended.
What topics should I avoid?
If you come up with an idea and then search to find that there have already been dozens of AMA Events on the same idea--, such as "I've lost 50 pounds. AMA." -you should reword your headline and rethink your approach or choose a different topic.
For instance, you could reword it to say something like, “I’ve discovered the secret of major weight loss. AMA.” Or, maybe you go with something like “I’ve learned which foods boost weight loss. AMA.”
Or choose a new approach, such as “I learned to love my scale. AMA.”
NEVER use someone else’s previously published material to answer questions without attributing it to the original author. That’s plagiarism and it’s completely unacceptable.
Please refrain from using an AMA Event solely for raising money or directing guests to a crowdfunding link or product. Depending on your AMA Event , it may be acceptable for you to mention a crowdfunding site if it is for a cause. Causes, not cash – that’s the best approach.
Also, please don't submit an AMA topic merely to "see if there's interest." If you feel strongly about your AMA Event topic, post it and have faith others will be on board with you and your idea. If you host an AMA Event and only a few people turn out for it, so what? Consider it a lesson learned and rework your AMA Event . Meanwhile have fun with the hardy few who have come to hear what you have to say. Some of the best experiences come from interacting with a smaller crowd.
Why should I host an AMA Event?
An AMA Event provides you with the opportunity to stand out as knowledgeable and authentic. You’re an authority who is open and transparent with your knowledge and passion for your topic. It costs nothing to host an AMA Event , but this small investment of your time can lead to major dividends for your cause. Appearing on one of our channels exposes you to a large community of people that may also be interested in what you have to say.
Here are just some of the ways you can use an AMA.
So how does this voting thing work?
As a member of our community, you get to vote in two ways.
First, community members can vote on which questions they like. We have it set up so the most popular questions as voted on by guests like you will appear at the top of the comment section of the AMA Event. This gives the Host a good idea as to what information is most important to his or her guests.
Second, you also get the chance to determine which compelling, informative, impactful, interesting, entertaining, groundbreaking or funny AMAs rise to the top the of the Most Popular list. That ranking is based on what we consider your “up votes.”
It’s important to note that we do not offer “down votes.” If you don’t care for a particular topic or host, you have the right to abstain from voting. If the majority of your peers share the same feelings, a low number of votes will drag the AMA Event down the list.
What is the content policy?
AMAfeed is a place where hosts and guests can gather without fear of judgment or criticism to discuss and share ideas. We want everyone to feel welcome and safe, so we need to follow a few rules about content.
We love the free exchange of ideas. We don’t tolerate things that are:
What are "Requests" and how do I make one?
"Requests" are submissions from guests who would like to see a certain individual– such as: an expert, celebrity or public figure – host an AMA Event.
NOTE: If your requested host has a public means of contact – like a Twitter page, Facebook page, or website, please include it.
Submitting a request is easy. Go to Request AMA, on the top right of the page.
That’s about it. We will take care of the rest.
How does scheduling a AMA Event works?
AMA Event must be scheduled at least 48 hrs before it starts. When you click CreateAMA (top right-hand corner) you will be prompted to describe the AMA Event as well as schedule the start time of your AMA Event event.
How long does an AMA Event run?
The traditional AMA Event runs at least a few hours, but it can last longer. The maximum time is 7 days. Once the set time expires, the door is closed and no further questions will be accepted.
All AMA Events are archived so those unable to make a certain time for the live event will still have the chance to see what they missed.
