5 things you should be doing to promote your next big event

Do you have a big event coming up? Sweating that not enough people know about it? Check out our 5 top tips for promoting your event, and you’ll easily fill up those seats.

1. Create a Facebook event, and share it with people who might be interested

Most people check their Facebook at least a few times a day, so a Facebook event is sure to get their attention. You can even send reminder to invitees to let them know if you will be attending

2. Send out a mail blast about your event a month in advance, and a reminder the week before

An mailshot about a corporate event is a great idea, but make sure you plan it in advance to give people time to schedule it into their calendars, plus a follow up reminder closer to the date. Make sure you include the event RSVP as a link in the email.

3. Create a memorable and easy to use Twitter hashtag

Creating a memorable Twitter hashtag is a great way to promote your next event. Write it on your website, and use it when tweeting about your event for maximum exposure, plus encourage other attendees to use it too. Make sure you check that the hashtag hasn’t previously been used for something you don’t want to be associated with or it will be a #HashtagFail.

4. Promote your event in your company signature

Use your WiseStamp team email signature to easily promote your next big event with every email your team sends out. This will help you increase attendees, and promote your brand for people who get your emails but won’t be attending your event.

5. Maximize LinkedIn to promote your event

LinkedIn is the perfect tool for promoting your event. Make sure you post about it on your personal and corporate profiles, and promote it via relevant groups in your industry. Make sure you post it under the promotion tab so you don’t annoy the group moderator, and only post once in each group you are active in.
