After you’ve chosen your event and ironed out the details, it’s time to promote! Make sure you have a process in place for promotions so you’re not reinventing the wheel every time. Connect through multiple social media platforms and always lead them back to your website. With each event, have attendees join your mailing list so that you can reconnect with them for future events. This way, your reach will grow bigger and bigger over time!
