2. BE INVISIBLE TO GOOGLE
Most people that search for your event name are going to find your website. What about other things they type? • What keywords are strong? • How can you use keywords to get a better ranking on Google?
LONG TAIL WORDS • More
descriptive = fewer searches = more likely to find you • More descriptive = more interest in you anyway! • More descriptive = costs less if you advertise • EX: Family fun, music festival, animal exhibits
Visitors will engage with your
site if they’re watching videos or listening to music! • Video brings an average of 3 times more visitors to your site per month • Organic search traffic increases by 157% • The average website visitor spends 88% longer on sites with video VIDEO
• Use an eye catching
thumbnail to encourage more clicks - Use what you just learned about photos! • Film “behind-the-scenes” with performers, event organizers etc. • Tour of the grounds videos can be fun and informative! VIDEO TIPS
SHORT AND SWEET Use what
social media has taught us about video. • Vine – 6 seconds • Instagram Video 15 seconds – outperforms Vine • On Facebook, videos can be any length but they automatically play as you scroll past, so first few seconds must be compelling!
