Introduction:

Business events are essential in knowledge sharing, innovation, and employee engagement. Research by the Content Marketing Institute/Marketing Profs 2022 showed that events produce the best results for organizations over other types of content. Following several years of pandemic-induced virtual events and the de-centralization of the work environment, people have begun to see the role of business events in a new light.  With organizations investing in hosted and hybrid events again, marketing organizations must use the latest techniques in social media, email, and video to drive maximum registrations, attendance, and virality.

Are you maximizing the opportunity of events for your organization? Are you marketing your event in a way that stands out from the crowd? In this Hybrid and Online Event Marketing Masterclass, you will learn how to plan and promote your business event, whether it’s taking place online, face-to-face, or in a hybrid format.

Define your event goals precisely and discover how to create networking opportunities, build customer relationships, support your thought leadership positioning, and more. Take away insights and best practice examples from a course instructor, Luan Wise, who has practical experience in organizing, hosting, and speaking at events worldwide.

Module 1 of the course will take you through the critical steps of planning your online, hybrid, or face-to-face event, from identifying objectives to creating a content marketing calendar that spans the entire event lifecycle. You will receive checklists of everything you need to consider before, during, and after your event, plus checklists for those involved (sponsors and speakers).

Module 2 focuses on how to promote your event across various platforms, integrating traditional marketing with email campaigns and social media. Learn how to increase your event attendance, create FOMO and excitement before an event begins, and keep the momentum going with your community after the event ends.

The course will include references and examples for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and X (formerly Twitter) and discuss organic and paid social media activities. We will also review some tools for hosting online events, including Zoom, GoToWebinar, and StreamYard.

Quick key takeaways:

    • The key considerations when planning a business event.
    • A robust content calendar for the three stages of event marketing.
    • Checklists for event organizers, sponsors, and speakers.
    • The role of email marketing in promoting your business event.
