There’s an App for It ? Part 4 of 10

BEFORE THE EVENT – PROMOTING

You’ve been spending countless hours designing, planning, and coordinating your upcoming event. However incredible these plans may be, anyone in the industry knows it’s time and money down the drain if you don’t get the word out and get attendees through the door. Enter the miracle of promoting!

Happily, with a few clever Apps, a few keystrokes and a little social media luck . . . . your event can become the most talked about and anticipated item on the calendar! Here are the top three Apps that make it a cinch to generate some buzz!

Bizzabo – this amazing free App is designed to connect event organizers with event attendees. Bizzabo divides its services into two camps—those who create events and those who attend them. It walks event planners through the planning before, during, and after! For event creators, the App is a one-stop shop for planning, networking, and marketing—offering a dedicated server, complete with company branding and logos. Messaging, calendars, agendas, polling, marketing and sponsorships are all covered by this game-changing application!

Foursquare – while we’re all used to this location-based social network App being great for our personal lives, be certain to maximize its potential for your event. Add your event as a venue in Foursquare as soon as possible, and create check-in possibilities for each of your event’s unique aspects, areas or gatherings. Foursquare is a fun way to “virtually” guarantee that your event attendees will make the most of the possibilities that you’ve organized. Feel free to engage your attendees’ competitive sides with competitions, giveaways and other special offers that are linked to their check-ins! Let Facebook and Twitter linked accounts distribute the details through hashtags.

Hootsuite – your attendees (or future attendees) need easy access to all of the vital information on your event, as well as teasers to drum up excitement and increase attendance. With so many social media opportunities and outlets, Hootsuite is the answer for delivering your messages simultaneously across all platforms. Some of your guests use Facebook and some may use Mixi, but Hootsuite is the best way to reach your audience at whatever social media platform is home for them!
