Social Media Tip: Create a Facebook Event

Facebook events are a goldmine…but you have to use them the right way. Create an event, ask as many people as possible to invite their friends, then work that timeline. Every post sends a notification to every person invited even if they have not clicked ‘join’.

Treat the timeline on the Facebook event page as you would the timeline on your Facebook page and let that be one mode of communication leading up to the event.

Used effectively, you will easily reach beyond your current network of friends and connections to spread the word about your event farther.
