Our clients ask: What is the most important part of an event?
There are so many features of an event that are important (fundraising, smooth event, consistent messaging and others) that for this email we wanted to focus on one that makes for a successful and profitable event.
Before, During and After an event the message you send to your audience is very important.
Where do you start?
Make sure your website has the event information prominently displayed on the home page, also devote an entire page to the particulars and why it is an event people want to attend. If you can have the event information on the sidebar of all your web pages this will also help raise visibility.
2. Social Media
Use social media to consistently communicate when the event is, why it is important and the about the organization it serves. Relevant updates about entertainment at the event will help to draw attention to your posts.
Beginning at the concept stage through to execution branding is key to consistent messaging.
Ideas for branding:
- Logo/art specific to the event
- Invitations with appropriate art work and organization information
- Email signatures appended with logo and links for key committee members and office staff
- Updated and information rich online calendar
- Mission Facts incorporated into the event
Information and colorful visuals to support the events purpose must be placed everywhere – even when you have nowhere to place it.
