This Week’s Tip: Ways to Promote Your Event
Do you have an event or promotion coming up? There are several ways to spread the word to get people there. Here are a few free or inexpensive options to consider:
Submit your event to the Terrell Chamber online calendar of events. These events appear on our website, in our weekly email newsletter, and on our two TV kiosks (at The Shops at Terrell and in the Chamber lobby). If you submit them early enough, they will also appear in our printed, bi-monthly Spotlight newsletter.
Set up a Facebook event, then invite all your friends and encourage them to share and invite their friends as well. You can also do a paid boost of the event to a targeted audience.
Let us know if you set up a Facebook event and we'll be happy to share it to our Facebook page.
Share the event to local Facebook Groups you belong to.
Print posters and flyers to distribute to local businesses.
Send an email invitation to your email list (if you have one).
Run an ad in the local newspaper.
Send a press release to regional news outlets.
Purchase digital banner ads with local online news websites.
There are other more costly options that may be feasible depending upon your marketing budget, such as billboards, broadcast advertising, magazine advertising, etc.
If you have questions on any of these methods, give me a call. I'm happy to discuss options with you.
