  • 6 Steps to Better Social Media at Your Events

    • September 1, 2015

    Every meeting planner knows that social media is an important aspect, but there are some key steps you can take to ensure it's successful. As with everything else for your event, do your research beforehand. It's essential to know ahead of time which platforms are most appropriate for your audience and at what times. Another task included in your pre-planning should be to appoint one person to be your on-site social media guru. Assigning one person to social media during the event removes the possibility of other to-dos taking precedence and keeps a consistent voice across channels.

    If you're going to keep pushing your meeting or event to the next level, a post-event survey can be one of your most important tools. You have to inspire your attendees to respond and provide suggestions. There are many things you can do to encourage that, but there are three major places to start.
