Our guide will assist event organizers, and marketers manage their social media accounts using a few strategic strategies.
Managing Social Media Accounts:
Select Your Platforms

Pro Tip: Once you choose the right social media channels, it is possible to eliminate having to manage multiple social network accounts. You can focus your event marketing efforts on a handful of channels and save time.
Windows that Allot a Specific Time
Event organizers live off meeting invites and clocks. It’s easy to become distracted when updating event details. This is especially true when you have 20+ notifications from previous posts and an inbox filled with messages you need to reply to.
You should set aside specific times during the day to check and update your event’s social media profiles. You can start by allocating one hour per platform for morning, evening, or night. Make sure you are only working on scheduling content, responding to follower comments and creating new content.
This will allow you to identify the most engaging times on your social media platforms.
You are likely to have an extensive collection of past events you can show off. Repurposing content eliminates the tedious task of creating new content every time you post on social media.
Many event marketers use social media and email marketing to save time and effort.
Keep a few posts in reserve
It’s okay to run out of ideas. It’s okay to run out of ideas on occasion. However, you can always keep some generic posts for those times. You can then choose from various pre-made posts and hit the publish button.
Small Steps > Big Jumps

Keep track of engagement
