Social media marketing is now one of the quickest ways for people to learn about upcoming events. Reach out to potential new attendees more quickly and easily than ever before, and generate attention and online buzz for your next event.
It is best to start promoting your event months in advance. Using social media event marketing to promote your event makes it easier to increase attendance. The simplest methods are Facebook events and targeted ads. Paid ads are an excellent way to promote public events; you can define your demographic and then target the general public – private events will not require this type of advertising.
How should social media be used at events?Instagram posts and stories: Begin a countdown to the event and post something every day, providing more details each time. From the event entertainment to the decoration, these small glimpses of what to expect will entice attendees.
- Instagram live: Use this feature to show your event as it happens, or use it in advance to allow potential clients to ask you questions about the event in the comments section.
- Instagram highlights: Share short videos from the planning process all the way through to the key moments after the event has taken place, a newer feature that is quickly gaining popularity.
- TikTok: One of the most rapidly growing platforms, and an excellent way to share content from your event. TikTok is a platform with an audience for everything, from the planning process to the final minutes of your event. On the day of your event, you can go live on TikTok, just like you would on Instagram; the difference is that anyone, not just those who follow you, can see your live feed on TikTok.
- Twitter: Twitter, a platform known for spreading news faster than any other media, uses hashtags to direct users to a trending topic. Tweet about your event’s process for others to like and retweet. Use unique hashtags created for your event to promote your event across all platforms, a fantastic tool for expanding your reach further than before.
- Influencers: With millions of followers across multiple platforms, influencers can help you expand your online reach significantly.
- LinkedIn: A great way to promote and engage with prospective attendees; because this platform is geared toward businesses, content posted here should be tailored to the audience. LinkedIn can help you attract more people to your brand if you use the right content.
- Top tip: Posting before, during, and after your event will give people a taste of what they’re missing. You instil FOMO (fear of missing out) in them and make them want to attend your next event.
