      Online ads can help get “bums on seats”. Facebook ads’ are particularly good for that although I would recommend you try the organic ways first before you start spending money. JV partners as well are good, most events these days offer an affiliate fee and this is another good way to get attendee’s.

    Good article. I would like to share few points that it need to define geographic area where your target customers will able to join or not. How much percentage will be join? like wise.
    Because, social media is very wide tool for any event where mass people are available,therefore, it must require to do analysis about each social media sites where you will be promoting.

    Each social media are working very different, like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn,or Google+ etc are working differently despite of rivals. So, it need to analysis carefully when you are making plan of gather traffic.

    Nice article. Thanks.

    • Lilach says:

      Thanks Virag:) Yes you’re quite right, if you’re putting on local event you need to consider the geographic area and how to promote it accordingly. For example http://www.meetup.com would be useful for local events too.

      The good news is that more and more people are providing webinars and live events where you can simply attend by logging into your PC which makes the power of social media even more prominent when organising an event:)

    This is a good post. Thank you for all the recommendation and important information. Good job.

  15. Great post Lilach, but I think you could miss a trick if you don’t include LinkedIn in the mix. Talk about your event in the groups you are in (interspersed with useful content of course), find events going on in your area and their organisers, create LinkedIn events and use the url to help publicise your event that way, and use LinkedIn’s powerful messaging capability to let your contacts know about it. If you’re nor using this amazingly powerful platform you could be losing out on raising your event’s profile!

    This is a really great article. People get like a scared rabbit in the headlights and think something is complicated when it’s actually not. Social media marketing is just common sense and over complicated to make it sound difficult by people – in order to perhaps earn them a contract or payment! Thanks once again.

    Thanks for the list, Lilach. Event Brite works very well with Word Press. Pathable looks interesting, but didn’t see a price on it. Several things here I didn’t even know about. Thanks for keeping us informed.

    I would like to hear a more regional breakdown on this topic. For regions such as DACH and EMEA, please.

  29. Very good article, too many people see the social media as an end instead of a medium.
