Promote your event using Twitter
Using your Twitter account
If you sign in with your twitter account, you can also share your entry with your very own network, thus doubling the immediate impact of your submission. This happens automatically and will create a tweet that gives your followers a link to the event and a relevant hashtag for the location.
Get your friends and followers to comment and express whether they're attending
You can also ask your friends to place comments on your entry, and of course ask them to reshare your event with their friends. Visitors to your event page, can leave comments and let people know that they are attending. Again, if they are on Twitter then through doing so, they'll also tell their friends and followers!
Here is an example showing how that works.
Through getting comments and visitor commitment, you help build a perception of popularity for your event. People like to feel part of popular things, so help your event gain popularity!
Here is a recent example showing how retweeting works. You can see how people are 'Retweeting' the @eventsnear account in support of their friends/followers recently created event.
Through getting your event retweeted, you get to amplify your message. Through using relevant hashtags, you also help people who look for things around certain locations, identify your cause.
Using our location pages to advertise your event
Our location pages in addition to user submitted entries, also contain references from people discussing events within that location. You can quickly identify people who are doing this and build additional friendships and allegiances through engaging with them. So long as you are adding genuine value, then you should be received favourably.
It's very simple to do so too, you just hit the button as seen in the graphic below, which will sign you in to your Twitter account. You can then tailor your message to person you are communicating with and tweet directly.
