So, you’ve got your event ready to go, but you’re having a little trouble getting the word out. Word of mouth and flyers can only do so much, and telling friends and family won’t bring a large enough crowd. When this happens, it’s time to turn to the internet to help. There are a variety of great websites designed to attract awareness to your business’ event, thus helping you grow a larger customer following and client list. With these websites, you’ll never have to worry about another event going under-populated. If anything, you’ll have to contend with having large crowds showing up every time!
In case you didn’t know, you can use Yelp for more than just rating your favorite restaurants and businesses. In fact, you can create a listing on Yelp to help advertise your event and your business. What’s so great about using this avenue to advertise your event is that you can add super specific details about your business to help potential customers get a good idea of who you are, what you’re selling, and what you’re about. This way, you can build up your brand, get in touch with potential clients and customers, and of course, promote your event. One stipulation, though, Yelp mainly allows you to create events in larger cities. You can, however, search for your city by choosing the “other cities” option in the event creation.
