Planning an Event to Promote? Here's How to Spread the Word

Sometimes planning an event is the easy part. I'm one of those who happens to enjoy the event organizing process (most of the time). The thing is, unless your event is only for family and friends, getting people to come to it can be much harder.

There are lots of ways to try to spread the word, but here's a helpful little list with tips about some of the more useful social media tools from John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing. If you don't have time to do them all, try to figure out which one or two best suits your personality and give those a shot first. If you have time, add another. While it's important to get the word out, it's not important to overload yourself so that when the event does come, you're too stressed to enjoy it or to do well. Do the best you can, see what works and what doesn't and then adjust your strategy for next time.

Good Writing & God Bless,
