Social Media Tips

  • Start your promotion ASAP. This helps build interest early, leading to greater exposure for you by the time of the event.

  • Include the official hashtag—#ELI23—in your posts to be part of the conversation.

  • Post to all of your organization's channels one hour before the event begins each day to generate excitement.

  • Provide your Twitter handle and other social media channels in your presentation materials or other collateral so attendees can connect with you after the event. Check your channels periodically to help answer questions and participate in discussions.

  • Go multimedia. Use content marketing, pictures, and video during the event. The more interesting you can make your posts—both content-wise and visually—the more effective they will be.

  • Have a genuine conversation. Talk like a real person in your posts, make sure you reply to others' posts when possible, and thank attendees for participating.

Use your daily emails to let your contacts know they can find you at the event.
