Alongside curating an invite list and nailing down the perfect venue, you also want to make sure that your event stands out from the rest! By engaging with your followers through social media, choosing a theme, and inviting a keynote guest speaker, you are well on your way!
Read on to see the surprising ways to make your next event stand out:
Engage Your Followers Through Social Media
There is nothing worse than feeling like you missed out on a good party. Prior to your event, ensure that you are creating captivating posts through social media so that people feel that it’s a must-attend event. Advertise the venue that’s hosting your event. Consider giving a live tour through Snapchat or Instagram live stories. You could even do a giveaway for a pair of free tickets to the event. Share images from previous events or sneak peaks of what you can expect at the event to increase the level of excitement and to help to spread the word.
Pick an Event Theme
Once you’ve decided on the purpose for your event, settle on a theme. A theme is crucial as it sets the tone for the entire event, attracts attendees, and will build your business’s brand. Next, consider your audience. What interests your attendees? It’s also important to take your venue into account and ensure that it compliments the vision you are hoping to create. A well-chosen theme can create buzz among attendees, help with guests’ focus, and attract a target audience.
Invite a Keynote Guest Speaker
Consider having a guest speaker attend your event. They will create value by increasing the buzz through your advertising campaign. When chosen correctly, a keynote speaker can build awareness for your occasion and even to your company. The purpose of a guest speaker is to change the minds of a group of people and to persuade or educate them on a topic they may not have heard about or seen before. Incorporating a guest speaker into your event is merely a bonus to an already well-executed event.
