  • So, we’re here to talk about eventmarketing. What is marketing?[click to build] At it’s core, marketing is about eliciting a physical and measurable RESPONSE. You want someone to do something…call you, come to your store, donate, or COME TO YOUR EVENT. That’s what’s at the core of marketing, and what is essential to the idea of marketing your business, your organization or your event.[click to next slide]
  • It’s not so much about the people on your list, it’s more about reaching the people on THEIR list. Make sure you are telling people to pick up the megaphone by clicking share and forwarding the invite or announcements, use the share bar and the forward to a friend link tool and ask….. Ask and they will click. Put the button next to the ask.
