You’ve got the ideas. You’ve got the people. You’ve got the enthusiasm. But now, how do you get people to come to your event? This post will help you get the word out about your event and generate attendance from local influencers and friends—no matter if it’s a birthday party, wedding reception or charity gala.
Reach Out to Local Influencers
You can reach out to local bloggers, journalists, and other influencers. Ask them if they would be interested in covering your event and provide them with the basic information about the event. If they agree to cover your event, offer them free tickets or a gift card in exchange for coverage of your event. Make sure you have a good reason for reaching out to these people and that it is a good fit for their audience so that they will want to write about it!
Promote Your Event on Social Media
Post event details on social media. Promote your event by posting a link to the official website on all of your social media platforms, and include a short description of what people can expect at the event. If you are posting photos or videos related to the event, consider including hashtags in the caption of each post so that it will be easier for people who are interested in learning more about your event to find it online.
Try using Instagram Stories or Snapchat filters to create unique content promoting an upcoming event. You can also post pictures from past events on these apps as well as other channels like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for an added boost of engagement before an upcoming show!
Send E-mail Blasts to the People on Your List
It’s important that you have an email list of people who are interested in your event before you start sending emails. This can be a group of people who already attended a similar event, or it can be any number of other audiences. For example, if you’re putting on a networking event for millennials, you could start by reaching out to young professionals that are already on your email list and see if they have any friends or colleagues who would also like to get involved with the event. You can also use social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to find people who would potentially want the information about your upcoming event; however, using social media as opposed to email will require more time because these sites typically don’t allow for mass messaging (that is, sending an email blast).
Get the Word Out With Flyers, Posters, and Ads
Flyers, posters and ads are the most common ways to get the word out about your event. Flyers can be posted in public places like coffee shops and libraries. Posters are hung in public places too. Ads can be placed in local newspapers so that they reach out to people who live near you, which will help them know more about your event and make them want to attend it.
Create an Event Hashtag
A hashtag is a word or phrase preceded by the number symbol on social media, which allows users to easily find and track conversations around that topic. The more people who use the hashtag, the more likely it will be trending, and therefore easier for others to find.
Use one that is relevant to your event but also easy for users to spell and understand (for example: #iaminlondon). Also keep in mind that if you aren’t already using this tag in your other marketing materials, don’t add it now just because we said so—your audience won’t know what it means!
You can use hashtags on Twitter and Facebook or Instagram by typing them directly into their respective fields when sharing content such as posts or photos. Just make sure not too many are used at once; they should help users browse rather than overwhelm them with information overload
Use Strategic Partnerships to Spread the Word
In addition to your event marketing ideas and strategy, you can also look for strategic partnerships that could help spread the word about your event. You can partner with local businesses and non-profits from within your community, as well as media outlets and social media influencers. When choosing a partnership, make sure that it is mutually beneficial for both parties involved, since this will ensure that they’re willing to spread good things about the event on their own platforms.
When it comes to other events in your area that are related to sports or wellness, consider partnering with them as well! If someone attends an event hosted by one organization and then finds out about another similar organization hosting another similar type of event nearby in the same week—they might be more likely than not (especially if they’re fans) to go check out the second one too! Plus working together with other organizations creates good networking opportunities which always leads into other opportunities down the road like sponsorships and more exposure overall!
Spreading the Word About Your Event Is Just as Important as Organizing It!
If you want people to show up and be excited about your event, then you need to get the word out about it. There are many different ways that you can do this, but there are two main things that you should keep in mind:
- Be clear about what the event is.
- Tell people when and where it will take place.
If you do this well, then people will be more likely to show up and even spread the word themselves by telling other people about your event. How exactly do you go about doing this?
I hope these tips help you spread the word about your event. I’ve tried all of them and know for a fact that they work! If there are any other strategies that have worked for you in the past, please feel free to share them below.
