Congratulations on a terrific event. Now what? Before you jump onto the next thing, what can you do to make that event continue to work for you?
- Post your photos from the event to Flickr and Facebook. Tag them with key words about your event, your place, and all the people pictured.
- Search for event photos from other attendees. Comment, compliment and ask permission to use them to promote the event in the future.
- Get some press. In a small town, you can probably write up your own report and submit it.
- Report on the event online. Post it to your blog, Facebook, and any local forums that welcome event reports.
- Drop a note (email?) to your legislators, especially if you received any state funding for your event.
What online promotion ideas would you add for after the event?
Side note: You know that Tourism Currents, the learning project for social media from Sheila Scarborough and me, is launching soon, September 9. While Sheila and I are busy (seriously busy) finishing up all the details, Sarah Page kindly wrote an overview of it at her blog, Tourism Tech. Thanks, Sarah!
