  • 2. WHAT WILL WE COVER? • Why Are We Here? • What Do You Need? (Core Elements) • Driving Engagement For Events In The 21st Century – Before The Event – During The Event – After The Event
  • 3. WHY ARE WE HERE? Source: http://www.eightytwenty.ie/blog/social-media-statistics-ireland-infographic/ (Apr 2013) • The traditional way of planning, promoting, running and follow-up for events is DEAD • Social Media has changed the landscape • It provides more opportunity, and reduces workload, but more competition too
  • 4. Source: http://www.eightytwenty.ie/blog/social-media-statistics-ireland-infographic/ (Apr 2013) WHY ARE WE HERE?
  • 5. On average 30% of visits to Irish websites are by users on mobile devices WHY ARE WE HERE? Forget Mobile Web at your Peril! In 2011 smart phones out-sold PC/Notebooks for the first time ever!
  • 6. How Irish Pride and Snap can work together No Mobile Website = Bad Customer Service 30% of 61% = 18% Of All Visitors! MOBILE VISITORS = HIGH EXPECTATIONS
  • 7. Main Drivers For Mobile Usage Email & Social Media... Source: IDC March 2013
  • 8. For Many, Digital Strategies For Promoting Events Is An Afterthought Let’s Investigate How We Might Change That
  • 9. Change Your Mindset – From This
  • 10. Change Your Mindset – To This + +
  • 11. THE ENGAGEMENT FUNNEL
  • 12. CORE ELEMENTS • Events Website – Main site with account creation/sign up – Sub sections with a “microsite" for each specific event – Account creation captures contact information and allows you to promote future events to everyone – Account provides visitors with access to private area and registration for individual events – Ensure that it’s fully mobile compliant (Adaptive Design)
  • 13. CORE ELEMENTS • Strong Social Presence – Setup accounts on relevant platforms: • LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Slideshare, YouTube (public vids), Vimeo (private vids). Perhaps even Facebook • Where there is concern around opening a new channel, then create it just to promote events • Formalise your Social Policies (if not already done) • Content Policies • Nominated posters • Approval Processes • Management Platforms (Hootsuite, Sprout, Tweetdeck) • Define tagging strategy • #snapevents • #webdesign • #snapdigital • In some cases tags may have inappropriate traffic/be too busy, therefore use them but create your own (#snapwebdesign)
  • 14. CORE ELEMENTS • Webcast System – Establish a system for delivering professional webcasts – Ensure the webcast supports most advanced features • Dual window for separate presentation and video feed • Recording of event to downloadable and editable format • IM during events
  • 15. BEFORE THE EVENT
  • 16. BEFORE THE EVENT • Create theme for event and design for sub sites • Define hash tag/s for event & promote them • Create content plan on a calendar – Create events in LinkedIn, etc. – Major points in slides are tweets – Major slides in presentations are posts – Use Hootsuite/similar to schedule tweets/posts – Send series of emails – Send webcast link • Create promo video/s for event • Send email to all invitee/registrants • Track online discussions about event with Google Alerts and Mention • Participate in discussions • BE SURE THE FACILITY HAS EXCELLENT INTERNET ACCESS AND CAN COPE WITH HIGH TRAFFIC!!!
  • 17. DURING THE EVENT
  • 18. DURING THE EVENT • Webcast the event for registered users through login portal • Tweet in real-time • Promote your #tag & ask people to engage – Put tags on all major materials – Add relevant tags in footer of every slide • Post/Send preview of day’s events at the beginning of event/each day • Use a Go-Pro to create Time-Lapse Video • Post/Send highlights of day’s speakers at the end of the event/each day • Assign a person as the Virtual Attendee Ambassador • Virtual attendees can ask questions in real-time using IM, #tag or @profile • Intertwine these virtual questions with the real ones • Have a Twitter wall that shows all tweets on one or more #tags • Have a Photo-Opp Wall with branding & #tag on it
  • 19. AFTER THE EVENT
  • 20. AFTER THE EVENT • Respond to posts & tweets • Reply to @ messages • Follow those you feel are influential in their fields • Create content packages – Documents – Presentations – Video highlights – Full videos – Twitter transcripts • Load content to relevant sites (Docstoc, Slideshare) • Integrate feeds from 3rd party platforms into site • Release content in stages with posts across all platforms to all registered users and links back to site/content • Release it all over 2 to 4 weeks following event • Then create CD and send to mailing list
  • 21. AFTER THE EVENT Don’t Be A Broadcaster! If you want people to engage, you have to engage with them • Be sure to respond quickly to questions and comments • Respond to ALL questions and comments Remember that the event isn’t over at the end of the day.
  • 22. FINALLY • Don’t worry if you can’t do everything from every stage • Choose the most important elements for your business based on your goals and capabilities • But whatever you choose to do, do it completely • Doing this will – Create far larger engagement/attendance than you might have traditionally – Create events that begin and end weeks before and after the event itself – Reduce the need to chase/hound attendees
