How to Promote Your Event, Club, Group or Community

Whether you’re organising an event, creating a community or putting together a club or group, once you’ve signed up to Eventility, there are lots of different ways to promote it. Below is a quick guide to some of the methods you can use to raise awareness, create excitement and encourage people to join your group.

Social Media

With billions of people using social media sites all over the world, they provide brilliant platforms for promoting and sharing your group or event. Here at Eventility, we’ve made it really simple to share on social media sites and you can even post updates directly to Facebook and Twitter from your Promote tab.

Your Website

Your own website is a great way to let people know about your activities and if someone has made the effort to visit your site in the first place, then chances are that they are more likely to be interested in joining any groups you have created. Adding an Eventility Events Plugin enables members and any visitors to your website to see a live feed of your up-to-date events. Use the Events Plugin builder in the Promote tab of your listing to easily create the features you want to show on your website. When you’ve finished, hit Get the Code, copy the code and just paste it into your website HTML. It’s that easy!

Emails

Email marketing has become an incredibly popular and effective way of reaching out to people. Since the introduction of smart phones, users now have the ability to check their inbox regardless of where they are or what time it is. Sending out emails is a great way to thank people for joining your group, keeping them updated with events and encouraging them to alert and invite others. Simply import your email list from Webmail or an Excel file and within minutes you can send out your notification to all your contacts directly from the Eventility site with a few clicks. You can see when emails are sent, opened and if any have bounced. With new member lists you can now separate your members into different lists e.g. beginners, intermediate, advanced, and email and SMS them separately with different messages.

SMS

A study by Nokia found that the average person checks their mobile phone 150 times per day. Sending out SMS messages to your group members is a sure fire way to promote your event and ensure that your community is kept up-to-date with all your latest news. Setting up auto-reminders means that Eventility will send out your SMS reminders at the time you have specified so it’s one less thing you have to worry about.

With everything you could possibly need to organise and promote your event or group in one easy to manage place, Eventility really couldn’t make it easier. If you need any help, why not use our support site which includes FAQs, access to our forums or email support@eventility.co.uk.

So, if you organise any event, club, group or community and aren’t using Eventility yet, why not give it a try, it’ll help make your give a little bit easier.
