10 Ways to Use Social Media to Promote an Event
Are you wondering how to promote an event with social media? Whether you have a small local gathering or a large conference, social media can be used to get the word out in a powerful way. In this article I’ll reveal 10 creative ways to use social media to increase your chances for a gangbuster event. #1: Create Video People Will Share Because events take place in person, they engage the senses in a way online content can’t. Creating a stellar video with great visuals and sound can not only help drive people to your event, it also increases the chances people will want to share it with friends. Check out this video from Social Media Marketing World 2013 for creative ideas. Here are a few tips for creating a video: Leverage it everywhere, including on your event page, in articles and with affiliates. #2: Give Away Tickets to Create Buzz Nothing motivates people more than the opportunity to win something free! Here’s how we do our contests: Here’s what a free ticket contest can look like.
As a savvy inbound marketer, you're already sold on the value of using social media. But good social media marketing is about more than engagement, lead generation, and wider reach ... you gotta have some etiquette, man. Etiquette? Really? Like pinkies-up-at-tea-time stuff? While social media etiquette might sound like a stuffy practice, this is really just about having good social manners online. Twitter Etiquette Don’t automatically direct message people that follow you. Your followers are smart and already interested in you enough to follow you on Twitter, right? Tip: If you want to connect with people that follow you, do so by sending them a relevant, engaging tweet to start off a real conversation. Don’t over-hashtag your tweet. According to a report by Salesforce, tweets with one or two hashtags receive 21% higher engagement than those with three or more hashtags. Don’t hijack another company's hashtag. Don’t use tricks or bots to get more followers. Don’t only spew your own stuff.

7 Tips for Building a Social Media Audience
Self-proclaimed "social media gurus" are a dime a dozen these days. When it comes to a successful social media marketing strategy, it can be tough for small businesses to sort through the noise, statistics and flurry of misinformation. One statistic we found online, for instance, claims that a Facebook fan is worth about $174 — but ask a small business with 300 Facebook fans if they've seen that $52,200 reflected in their revenues and you're likely to get a skeptical look or chuckle. For small businesses seeking to engage audiences via social media and get the most bang for their buck, figuring out where to start — and more importantly, how to leverage the huge potential of an engaged online audience — can be a daunting task. Let's forget about the statistics and wild claims, and focus instead on good, old-fashioned advice. 1. Beware of "experts" that tout the distorted notion that social media is free marketing.

By now, many of us in the presentation business have heard the mantra, “visual is viral.” But just how seriously should we be taking it? Pretty seriously, it turns out. The proof is in the numbers. Content with relevant images gets 94% more views than content without (images used in SlideShare decks from 2013 to 2014 increased by a whopping 53%, according to CMO.com). So how exactly do you reap the benefits of a highly visual presentation? Be Relevant The photos you select must be relevant to your presentation topic, high-resolution, and captivating. Relevancy is critical because as you would suspect, research shows that irrelevant pictures can complicate learning for your viewers instead of simplifying the comprehension process. For example, if you’re sharing stories from your experiences as a raving sports fan, don’t try to be clever and use a photo of a rotating fan that you use to cool your house.

A közösségi média, és ennek köszönhetően az online marketing folyamatosan változik. Ennél nagyobb közhellyel nehéz kezdeni talán egy cikket. Mégis igaz, ahogy az is, hogy nagyon izgalmas irányok bontakoznak ki. Ha pedig valaki ezekre nem figyel oda, egyszer csak azt veszi észre, hogy lemaradt valami fontosról. 0. Itt van velünk régóta, amit a nagy platformok jól kezelnek, a kkv-k viszont sokszor rosszul. A mobil önmagában teljesen felforgatta a marketinget. 1. Egyre több olyan szolgáltatás olvasztanak magukba a nagy platformok, amiknek a természetes helye a weboldalon volt. Mindenesetre a jövő abba az irányba mutat, hogy egy webáruház csak háttér adatbázis lesz, a vásárlás viszont le tud zajlani a Facebook hírfolyamban egy hirdetésre kattintva. Továbbra is kelleni fog weboldal, de a szerepe átértékelődik. 2. A mobilnak köszönhető ez is: mindig tudjuk, hol járnak a vevők. Vagy olyan céllal, hogy becsábítsuk magunkhoz, vagy azért, hogy sokkal személyre szabottan tudjunk nekik kommunikálni.

The introduction of parking charges on a Poldark filming site where 31 men died nearly 100 years ago in a mining disaster has been defended by the National Trust. Opponents say "public feeling is high" about the ticket machine at Levant Mine in Cornwall. The machine was wrenched out of the ground on 4 February but will be replaced on Thursday. The National Trust said the fees fund conservation and maintain the site. More on the Poldark mine parking fees, and other Cornwall news 'Poldark location' Scenes from the first series of Poldark were filmed at Levant Mine, and the National Trust said there had been a 50% increase in visitor numbers to 100,000 people a year since the drama was first broadcast in March 2015. "Public feeling against this new policy is running very high locally and, to prevent a repeat of unsightly and costly vandalism, I once again appeal to the National Trust to reconsider their parking policy and agree to grant an exemption for this location."

After Comet Ping Pong and Pizzagate, teachers tackle fake news
History teacher Chris Dier was in the middle of a lesson last week at Chalmette High School in Chalmette, La., when a student made a befuddling inquiry: “He raised his hand and asked if I knew about Hillary Clinton using pizza places to traffic people.” About a thousand miles away at Wilson High School in Northwest Washington, distressed students in teacher Eden McCauslin’s history and government classes asked why a North Carolina man armed with an assault rifle had appeared at their local pizza shop, Comet Ping Pong, telling police that he wanted to free child sex slaves he believed to be harbored there, a false narrative conspiracy theorists have pushed on the Internet. [Pizzagate: From rumor, to hashtag, to gunfire in D.C.] Hoaxes, fake news and conspiracy theories have abounded on the Web, spreading with increasing speed and intensity during the recent presidential election cycle. As the Comet Ping Pong incident displayed, such false accounts can inspire very real consequences. local
