How to Promote your Event Trending on Twitter?
Promoting an event trending on Twitter is not about typing 280 random characters with the name and date of the event and waiting for tickets to sell out. As we always say: planning is the key.
1. The Calendar
It is essential to make a calendar with the broadcast dates of the event and define what types of message you will launch in each phase of communication:
Before the event: Although it depends on the type of event (because it is not the same to promote a music festival as a professional event). A good promotion on Twitter should start at least two to three weeks before the event.
You will have to give clues about the content of the event and talk about the people who will participate. And publish related content that meets the requirements to entertain, inform, and encourage the purchase of tickets.
During the event: In addition to counting at all times and real-time what is happening so that followers can retweet and achieve greater reach. It is essential to use a streaming tool (such as Twitterfall or Visible tweets ) participants feel part of your event.
After the event: Keep tweeting about the possibility for at least a couple of days and convince those who did not attend not to miss the next one. It is essential to interact with all Twitter users who tweet, mention, and comment on the event with your hashtag.
2. The Hashtag
- As you already know, the hashtag is the word you and those attending the event will use to talk about it.
- Although it seems trivial, a tip: do a previous search not to use one already being used and make it more difficult for you to measure the results.
- If you organize a recurring event, in addition to the generic one, promote another with the year.
- To see the evolution of using a #hashtag, we recommend using tools such as SocialBro.
- You will be able to identify which people are talking about him.
- And their level of influence (the number of followers they have).
Twitter offers a reasonably affordable and micro-segmented advertising platform, something exciting because.
In addition to having demographic characteristics of the people (age, gender, place of residence), you can direct your communication plan based on the tastes and preferences audience.
There are several types of ads on Twitter depending on the objective (get more followers, collect emails from leads, generate conversation). Still, to sell tickets, it is better to use the one oriented to conversions.
With the objective clear, the following steps are:
- Define the name of the campaign and its duration.
- Select your audience: You have to indicate in which country or region you want to promote your event (for example, Valencian Community),
- Gender (exciting if you organize a women’s fair like Womenalia, for example), type of device, interests, accounts similar to yours or even, by television programs.
- Set your budget: Put a daily limit and a total limit for your campaign. You can leave the automatic bid per click or define a budget per click yourself if you want.
- Add creativity: We recommend using the option to create a Card because its design is more sales-oriented. You will have to write a tweet that summarizes in 280 characters the best of your event, upload an eye-catching photo, choose a call to action (for example, “buy now”), and the destination URL.
- You will see how much potential your ad has depended on the segmentation you have placed and your budget.
