  • Create a post on your website with photos, names and details about the event you have just hosted. This will entice people to visit your website. People like to see photos of themselves, so make sure to tag specific people within your post. This will give you more exposure and likeliness.

Offline:

  • Distribute discount coupons as a key takeaway. This will give people an incentive to return to your venue. (We recommend coupons that expire within two weeks).

Reach out to attendees. Get their names and contact information so that you can mail out additional information and promotional services out to them. (Newsletters, offers, discounts etc.) Remember, you want to make them regulars at your venue.
