Improving Your Facebook Events

On top of publishing Facebook events, find ways to get your followers excited about the upcoming event. Some ideas

  • A countdown to the event
  • Teasers about the Event like pictures of the venue, profiles on your speakers.
  • Creating an inside Facebook group where you and other organisers can give updates on the status of the planning process.
  • Real time updates help people keep track with you. If your speaker says something insightful quote it, if someone asks a good question put it up as an update.
  • A post event update is a great way to improve the event, it is useful to those who weren’t able to attend and it is a way of consolidating everything that took place for people.
