Join our free chat session: Tying Social Media into Your Event Marketing Efforts.
September 1, 2009 from 1pm to 1:45pm ET
There are lots of ways to use social media in your event planning and marketing efforts. In this Chat session, we’ll focus on how adding some basic social media initiatives can help you raise awareness of your event, your speakers, and your sponsors.
Meeting planners for both large and small events are looking to capitalize on blog technology, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to raise interest and gain attention. Learn how embedded “Share” buttons in your event marketing software can help reach new attendees. Learn how to use Twitter to engage your speakers. Have questions about other technologies? Bring them to this session and we’ll answer them.
In preparation, we thought we’d ask you to do two things:
(1) sign up for your own Twitter account (http://twitter.com). It’s free. When you do, try following us (http:twitter.com/ennect). (Click on follow.)
(2) Find the eMarketing SIG blog (http://emarketinggroup.wordpress.com/) or the Ennect blog (www.ennect.com/blog) and add some comments to the posts there. Try signing up for an automatic feed using the RSS feed buttons on the site.
