promote your eventOver the past few years, JASE has sponsored, helped promote, and actively participated in many offline events. The Hampton Roads Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration’s 2011 Annual Symposium is the latest example of this. For each of the events, we have used and tweaked the inbound marketing techniques we use to promote the events.

Based on our experiences, below are a few guidelines that could help you in promoting your event.

  1. Create a website for your event. If the event is part of a series, such as Digital Media Seminar, feature each event separately within the event series’ website. Use solid SEO strategies describing each event uniquely.
  2. Use a hashtag for your event. Digital Media Seminar uses #DMS2010. Coffee with the CEO uses #CWtC. These hashtages used throughout your Twitter network are easily searchable and provide a nice brand tag for your event(s).
  3. Talk about your event everywhere. When you’re on Facebook, talk about your event. When you’re on Twitter, talk about your event. When you’re on FriendFeed, talk about your event. When you’re on YouTube, talk about your event. And again, be sure to use solid SEO strategies linking back to each event.
  4. Create a following around your event. Create a buzz on the event, its speakers, and its content. Create a group for your event on LinkedIn. Create a Facebook Fan Page for your event. Create a blog for your event. Create a space for your event to be talked about. And again, be sure to use solid SEO strategies linking back to each event.
  5. Advertise your event on Eventbrite and Yahoo! Upcoming. Aside from the SEO advantages of these powerful websites, they have a nice toolset of scheduling, registration, and communication features.

We hope these tips help you with advertising your next event. We are available to assist where needed with your inbound marketing strategies.

    These are all wonderful tips! I would recommend using my company Ticketbud on tip #5. Sell tickets online at http://www.ticketbud.com. Unlike Eventbrite, we are the the original self-service ticketing app that allows you to sell unlimited tickets online to your event for a $19.99 flat-fee. Guests register, pay and print tickets online. You track and manage ticket sales and keep the proceeds. Be smart and save your event a lot of costs by using our application.
