4 Creative Ways to Promote Your Event
Marketing an event is no easy task. Advance planning and creativity are the keystone to creating a successful event promotion. Gather together a team, allot yourselves enough time and explore all options. Besides having an event page and sending out invites to your contacts, here are 4 more creative ways you can promote your event:
Put up posters, send out post cards, hand out flyers, leave door hangers, post signs on bulletins.. The list goes on.
Invite a well-known speaker or professional within your industry and ask them to share your event. Because they are trusted by your demographic, there is a good chance of seeing an increase on both your attendees and event coverage.
Hand out branded t-shirts, give free tickets (perhaps from contests), offer raffle prizes. All these will encourage people to attend, stay 'til the end or spread the word.
