Meeting Description:

Online event promotion sites can enable you to reach a much larger audience for practically nothing. These sites can be excellent traffic drivers to your site and enhance your search engine optimization to boot! Combine online event sites with social media and you've got more traffic, better visibility for your event, AND you can channel the energy of your friends, followers, and volunteers through social media sites to help get the word out!

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to find local and national event sites to list your events
  • How to create a network of social and event sites that all drive traffic to your event
  • How to manage and empower your supporters with the assets and information they need
  • Step-by-step event promotion roadmapping and get checklists for event planning and promotion
  • How to create and maintain a social network that enhances your visibility for future events
