Social media moves fast, but nowhere is it faster than on Twitter. If you’re promoting events on Twitter, it means your marketing strategy needs to evolve quickly too.
Twitter may be one of the most challenging networks for social media event marketing, but it’s also one of the most rewarding.
Facebook isn’t just the world’s favourite social media platform, it’s also a powerful events hub. With 490 million people using Facebook events every month, it’s the discovery site many people turn to when they want to find out what’s going on in their area.
With new social networks being created regularly, LinkedIn can be a platform that’s often forgotten about and underused. However, it can be an incredibly powerful tool for marketing your event – especially if you’re aware of many of the platform’s hidden tools that don’t seem to get the attention they deserve.
