The event is about human interaction. It is a time-consuming task that requires full attention to make sure every single detail is perfect from the beginning to the end. Having a successful event is mostly about attracting the right crowd to your event and getting the greatest experience. Here are 5 key ideas to bring success in your coming event.
1. The First Impression – Exposing The Event
Pre-event experience is important to get people involved in talking about your event. Can you imagine promoting an event without using the social media platform nowadays? It feels like being abandoned from the world when people always stay online to connect and socialize with each other. Selecting the ideal social media platform to promote your event is essential to target a bigger crowd.A few recommended platforms to start with your event would be Facebook, LinkedIn, Youtube, etc. Creating a high-quality posting in the social media platform catches attention and awareness to discuss the event. It also creates a sense of curiosity to boost people’s interest in your event. Always remember, there is no second chance to make a first impression.
2. Attract The Right Crowd To Your Event
How to make people come to your event? Targeting the potential attendees from the previous list by sending the invitation emails. It is the most effortless and easiest way to express the organizer’s appreciation for their participants. The potential attendees would feel special about themselves, increasing their self-worthiness in turn attract them to visit the event. If your event charges money, a promotion like the early bird offers acts as a treat for attendees to commit earlier to your event. When there is no second chance if you first miss, the sense of competitiveness helps create a crowd to your event. The ticket sales also help give the idea of whether the sales are aligning with your goals.
3. Engage An Influencer
Find and @mention the featured guest to promote the event visibility and boost a broader range of potential attendees to your event. The power of influencer marketing can be effective due to their trustworthiness and relationship with their audiences. Having a social media wall on-site allows the influencer to take a nice visual photo while making the event to be more interesting. The attendees build a greater event impression and are more willing to make a purchase decision. Using custom #hashtags on social media posts strengthen the engagement and interaction with the event. This drives the event’s momentum to align with the publicity in social media platforms and keeping the trend on. The potential attendees would trigger “crave” to join the event as they don’t want to be “missing out” by the social world.
4. Customize Contests & Sharing The Benefit
Create a buzz to your event by organizing a giveaway contest. It is a great approach to bring excitement and spread awareness for potential attendees by becoming the world-of-mouth. The contest with complimentary prizes can also promote positive company branding. Even though you can’t get sales through this, it might increase the attendees for your future event. Besides, offering free meals and drinks provides a talking session that people could share about their experiences which grows the chance to make the event more memorable. During the time, get your attendees to fill up a survey to know about their contact details. Alternatively, giving out free gifts to get more involvement. You know, who’s going to reject something free?
5. Keep In Touch
91% of event organizers measure the success of the event by attendee satisfaction. There is nothing more rewarding by having the best results. Hence, it’s not the time to rest yet once the event has ended. Do follow up with your attendees and allow them to share their thoughts. Keep in touch with the potential attendees through social media platforms, keep tracking your company page and custom #hashtags. Also, reach them out using email blasting, text messaging, search-engine campaigns, etc. While you are holding their survey with their contact details, kindly ask them if they would like to receive the newsletter to keep them up-to-date to your event.
