A lot goes into the planning of a corporate event, and that means you want the attendance rate to be as high as possible. Having the event professionally catered certainly encourages employees to attend. How else can you create enthusiasm for the event (as opposed to just making attendance mandatory)? Here are a few ways to digitally promote your corporate event.
Social Media Is Vital to Promoting Events
Creating an event page on Facebooks can allow your employees to do everything from seeing the itinerary for the event to RSVPing online. Getting a head count is particularly important when an event is being catered so that you have enough food without wasting money on ordering enough for three times as many guests as you end up having. You can link to the events page on your company website as well as include the website URL on other promotional materials.
Hashtags can also help you to build excitement. Share your event’s special hashtag on all promotional materials and use it on Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media platform your company uses. Then attendees can later share pictures from the event with each other using that hashtag.
Share Photos and Enjoy a Great Meal
If you share pictures using the hashtag developed for the event, attendees will often follow suit. Post pictures of the speakers giving their presentations. You may even show images of the food. Before you know it, people who didn’t attend may be asking about next year’s event.
