Tips for organizing an event on Facebook
We conclude this guide “in style”, with a series of tips for organizing an event on Facebook. After having seen technically how to create an event on the famous social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg, I am sure you will like some practical “tips” on how to proceed in this direction.
- Use an eye-catching cover – you know, the eye wants its part and this also applies to event covers on Facebook. The cover is probably the first thing others will notice about the post related to the event you are advertising, and for this reason, if you want it to be successful, you must choose one that is suitable for the purpose.
- Not leaving anything to chance – try to be as specific and detailed as possible, indicating precisely the exact place and time at which the event will be held. Use the text field dedicated to the description of the event to enter specific information on what will be done during the program, any guests present and, if you deem it necessary, also give some information on how to reach the location that will host the event.
- Sponsor the event – if you have created an event using your Facebook page, consider sponsoring it through a paid advertisement, so as to give it greater visibility. More info here.
