Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Social media is a great way to stay connected to event attendees especially when there are hundreds, if not thousands, of people with whom you want to connect. All ages use social media and the most popular platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn can be used to promote any event.
A good social media plan requires tools to monitor social conversations and a team to support it, especially during an event. In order to deliver great results, here are five social media tips to market your next sports event.
1. An event hashtag is an integral way of engaging your audience during a sports event. Make it easy for players and fans to engage by providing a hashtag for easy search results. The ideal length of a hashtag is between six and ten characters.
2. To create a passionate fan base for your sports event, initiate conversation. Create a story and make sure the narrative is loud and clear so followers are compelled to respond back. No matter how big or small your sports event, it deserves recognition, support and engagement.
3. Follow back people who support your sports event. We aren’t suggesting you need to follow back everyone that follows you, but if their interests are mutually beneficial, then it’s a great way to acknowledge your followers.
