At the heart of small business marketing are the campaigns that drive action. One important yet overlooked marketing campaign involves the running of well-organized and well-publicized events.

During this workshop, you will learn:

  • The different types of events you might run
  • How to set a goal for your event
  • How to promote your event (including a sample promotional timeline and activities)
  • How to set up an effective online registration process
  • What post-event activities you can’t forget to do

Please Note: This session will not be addressing best practices around event planning topics, like venue selection, event entertainment or dining options, running fundraising activities, e.g. live or silent auctions, etc. This session is focused solely on helping you to promote your event and to streamline the online registration process.

Join us and learn some great new strategies to help you promote your next event and set up an online registration process that helps your event succeed.
