You can use social media to both organise, promote and enhance an event. Over the next 2 weeks our podcast will be showing you how to create events using Facebook and Linkedin.
This week we will show you 4 applications that help you take bookings and help you display tweets at your events and sharing your events presentations.
Eventbrite allows you to set up an event and take payment from attendees. Once you have created your event it is easy to embed a sign up form into your website or even just a booking button.
Similar to Eventbrite but with what seem to be far more customisable pages. EventElephant it’s an Irish company which means customer service will be easier to reach.
The easy way to set up a tweet wall at your event we’ve talked about Twitterfall before but we can’t find an alternative that we like more so here it is again. Add your event #tag to the wall and watch the tweets scroll onto your screen. All you need to do is hook your computer up to a screen or a projector to share the tweets with conference goers. This encourages more interaction amongst your audience and more online buzz about your event.
Using Slideshare you can set up a group or an event where all the presentations from the day can easily be shared. Simply click ‘events’ at the top of the home screen once logged in. Again this not only makes it easier for attendees to catch up with the presentations it also creates a buzz around your event.
