With social media apps rising on the top communication channels, it’s no surprise that event organizers are utilizing the power of social networking platforms.
Social media apps are flexible tools for marketing events. You can either post pictures, videos, or even directly contact prospects on messenger— organizers just have to be wise about it.
With that, here are 7 tips when promoting an event on social media apps. If you’re an organizer or an aspiring one, make sure to take note of these tips for a much successful event.
Here’s a quick rundown of the 7 tips. But for a better understanding of these tips, scroll down for more.
Hype up your event as early as possible, especially for events that require paid tickets. This to get more chances of getting viral, to spread out the word much evenly, and to allow possible attendees to earn their tickets.
As the event approaches, make sure that you have a series of public materials to post on social media apps. You want people to get excited so just put in a glimpse of the event on the first stages of promotion, then little by little, show what the event has to offer.
This is also to give organizers some time to confirm the guests— you don’t want people expecting someone only to tell everyone that the person canceled his/her attendance.
Encourage the event followers to use a branded hashtag. Do this so that you are aware of the discussions about the event, such as inquiries and requests.
Showing a glimpse of what you’ve been doing backstage, alongside with the main guest will hype people and make the event more legit since there’s actual preparation behind it.
If you’ve started early on the promotions, it’s doable to get organic reach from word-of-mouth. But if you need to get the word out as fast as you can, you can always tap some micro-influencers or even the big ones if you have the budget for it.
This is an effective promotion tactic. Just put like, follow, and share on your contest mechanics, and you’re good to go.
Before you put up promises of any sort, make sure you can give out the expectations of the event-goers. Now that we’re in the social media age, any fails from your event can be posted on social media apps. So before putting anything on the public, make sure that the people involved in it have confirmed and that the event team can handle it.
If you’re attending a wedding, it’s expected that you’ll share it on social media. Event organizers even encourage guests to share their photos, providing them with personalized hashtags for the couple.
But then again, before you pick up your smartphone and start posting, also consider the unwritten social media etiquette at weddings. This is to give the couple, organizers, and other guests a peaceful wedding experience.
It’s normal to get excited about one’s engagement, especially if the one getting engaged is someone very close to you. But never try to announce someone’s engagement on social media platforms. Let the couple have that moment. Don’t steal their spotlight.
If the wedding organizers established wedding rules, follow it. If the couple requested for an unplugged wedding (no mobile devices during the whole ceremony), follow it instead of whining and sneakily checking your messenger.
If you’re one of the bridesmaid/Groomsmen, it can be tempting to share selfies with the bride/groom on social media platforms. But posting pictures of the bride and the groom before the actual wedding might ruin the surprise effect. Just keep those pictures until the end of the wedding.
Here’s the thing: You’re a wedding guest, not the official photographer. Don’t walk around the venue taking shots as if you were paid to do that. Stop ruining the shots. Photographers can only do so much with the post-prod process. Don’t make it harder for them by editing your blocked hand in a walking-down-the-aisle shot.
Enjoy the wedding! The couple wanted to celebrate this important occasion with you. Don’t be plain rude.
Weddings are a private event. You’re supposed to be watching and celebrating it with them, not sharing it with your 1000+ friends and followers. You weren’t there for that purpose– you’re violating their privacy.
We get that you’re super excited to share the photos. But before hitting your social media apps, ask the couple first. Maybe they prefer to have their professional shots released first.
Don’t like the appetizer? You think the bride’s gown a bit tacky for her looks? Annoyed with the groom’s nephew running around. Here’s what you do: Get your phone and do nothing about it. Respect the newlywed couple. Keep those unnecessary opinions to yourself, as tweeting about will only lead to conflicts.
You’re dating this person for months now, always spending time together through dates and social media apps. Your friends and family know that you’re in a relationship, and the same goes for this person.
Everything’s seemed okay, but then, something is bothering you, as you check your profile. Both of you have a single status on your social media profiles.
This got you thinking: should you change your relationship status now? Should you ask your partner? Do you have to make it official?
Well, if you’re still thinking about making your relationship social-media-official, we’re here to help you decide.
We have the reasons why you should or shouldn’t make your relationship known on social media apps.
The thing is, making your relationship official on social media apps isn’t going to affect that much. It may be considered a good step in leveling up the relationship, but posting each other’s faces online wouldn’t make the relationship better or stronger.
There’s also not a perfect time to tell your followers about your relationship. As long as both of you are ready, then you’re good to go.
Let me start here by saying: there’s no such thing as a perfect recipe to create a trending social media post. You may hire the most popular social media influencers and produce the most epic social media post idea ever. But that doesn’t mean you’ll get the traction you want.
However, there are ways you increase your chances of getting viral. By checking out these 5 things, you may produce a trending social media post that could level up your online popularity.
Here’s a quick rundown, but for more in-depth information, scroll down for more:
People love to share posts that resonate with them. If your post is relatable for them, they could most likely tag someone in the comment section, share it on their own profiles, or even share it through Messenger. Either way, you’ll expose your content to more possible followers.
How do you make your content relatable? One of the things you should do first is to assess your existing or target followers. At what age group do they belong? Are they mainly men, women, or from the LGBT? Determining your audience will get you a solid idea of the type of content you should be posting.
The more authentic you are, the more people will relate to you, which will possibly turn to followers. Overedited photos may look “aesthetic” but if your content isn’t genuine, then people wouldn’t be as invested in your personality/profile.
If your content isn’t genuine, then people wouldn’t be invested on you.
Interactive posts consist of mini-games, polls, questions, and other types of post that are tag-worthy. Having interactive posts will get you more engagement as well as followers.
Posting with other social media influencers is also a good step to get more engagement on your social network profile. For this, you can search internet personalities that have related audience and content with your profile. After that, start a conversation with them on messenger and propose your collab idea.
It’s also good to check comments on your posts. Sometimes, your followers leave requests in there. Once you’ve checked all your comments as well as messages, list down all the requests and pick the stuff you can possibly accomplish.
If you don’t have that many requests, you can simply make a post asking your audience as to what type of content do they want to see from you. Make sure you do at least the top doable requests.
There’s no better feeling when you’re being noticed. With that, don’t forget to give a shoutout to the one who requested the content.
And there you go, the 5 ingredients of a trending social media post. Now, if you’re an aspiring social media influencer, join the featured app’s EyesUP Influencer program. For more details, you may check it here.
Calling is indeed is more intimate and authentic than messaging, but not in all cases. There are certain scenarios in life that one must chat instead of call. Wondering what scenarios we’re referring to? Well, we’re gonna list and explain them here, one by one.
From being extremely busy up to being extremely emotional, here are 7 scenarios where messaging will help more than calling someone:
Whether you’re doing chores or doing an important project, we have days where we can’t even take a simple 5-minute break. If that’s the case, communicating with friends and family through messages than calls is better. You can also focus more on what you’re doing and reply when you’re done, compared to staying for a couple of minutes listening to random stories.
If you’re in a public place and you need to discuss something sensitive, it’s better to send a message than whispering on a phone call.
If your train of thought is messy, it’s better to send messages. This is to avoid having a full emotional speech to your partner, family or friend. Messaging also puts things in perspective. This makes you realize if what you’re trying to say is making sense or not. And if you do realize that you’re getting carried away with your emotions, then you can simply not send or delete the message. Good thing is that new social media apps have an “unsend” option for these kinds of moments.
If you’re planning out a trip, it can be fun discussing with through phone calls. Hearing their excited voices makes you more hyped than ever.
But the downside for calls is that you can forget certain details, and that may lead to some mishaps. So discuss it through a call, but still, use messaging to share important details about your plan. Group chat also comes in handy for this, especially if you’re planning with a group of people.
Like a guy from another class? Well good for you because you were born in the social media era. Today, you can connect with someone in just a few clicks. If you’re shy and cannot muster the courage to say hi, messaging apps enable you to say hi in a virtual way, thus helping your awkward self to open up more.
If you’re in a mode of public transport, don’t call someone unless it’s an emergency. Phone calls can be annoying to tired commuters especially if you spend a good chunk of that phone call giggling to your friend’s shenanigans. Just leave them a message instead and let the commuters take a nap or sustain their peace.
Sometimes, we just want to work efficiently, and messaging someone will save you a few more minutes. You can then use those saved time to do what truly matters to you, such as having actual conversations with family or bonding more with your pets.
Can you still remember life before the social network took over? By this time, new social media apps are just being conceptualized– some of it is not even being thought upon.
Everyone is busy checking the newest TV shows, going to comic and book shops for some reads. Some are busy crafting their profiles for classified ads for love seekers/text mates/penpals.
If you would think about it, our life and culture are different the moment the internet and social media came into the picture. Here are the specific changes social media made to our culture:
Before, television ends the discussion when the show ends. We don’t have a channel for all of us to discuss our thoughts about politics, entertainment, pop culture, and such. We can only talk about it with our family, friends, and colleagues.
When social media happened, a big shift happened. Suddenly, all of us have a public channel to say our opinion on every little thing that gets viral. Whether it’s a showbiz story or a major announcement from the Government, everyone has something to say.
Just look at any popular post on popular or new social media apps. Some are sharing valid thoughts, some are trolling around, while others are busy having a social debate with others.
Back in the pre-social media days, reaching out to a foreigner is a rare occurrence. You can’t talk to someone from another country unless you’ve got a hefty amount of money for long-distance calls. Now on the new social media app age, you can chat with someone through messenger apps.
You can also reach out to your favorite celebrities through social network channels. Unlike before, where you physically have to follow your idol around or wait for entertainment news just to get updated.
As time went by, social media (internet in general) is taking over the traditional media. I mean why would you wait for commercials just to hear a news story about your favorite celebrity? You can just open your smartphone, search his/her Instagram, and you’re done.
This is because celebrities changed their ways too. Before, they make major announcements through entertainment shows, but nowadays they do it on photo sharing apps or social media apps.
Aside from interacting with people, social network apps became an avenue for people to shop for. Facebook has a Facebook marketplace, Instagram has ads now on its explore page and new apps like EyesUP that have online seller accounts.
Thanks to group chat, it’s easy now to collaborate with your workmates. Either it’s a School or Business project, there’s no excuse now not to get involved.
Before the new social media app era, getting popular can only happen if you’re an actual celebrity or someone who just showed up on TV, thus getting 15 minutes of fame.
Now, getting quick popularity is possible since you can be viral in just a few hours. Unfortunately, that popularity will fade in just a few hours too.
Social media is still evolving with every feature. New social networking apps like EyesUP are working on reinventing social media.
Now, what can we do about it? All we need to do right now is wait and go with the changes, and be self-aware on how to use social media responsibly.
