The top 5 social media platforms will allow you to engage with and stay connect with the event guests. Twitter, Facebook and Google+ all allow you to share in real time, so that you can share your experience as it happens. Just tweet photos of the event guests engaging with your product, share it on Facebook, or upload it the Google+ event page by using the party mode. If you’re tweeting your customer engagement make sure to use the event hashtag. Using the hashtag will centralize your tweet with all other event tweets so that guests who are searching for the event on Twitter, will easily find your tweet.

After an Event:

Using social media platforms after an event will allow you to share and recap your wonderful experience. You can go into all top 5 social media platforms and update them with the photos, videos and reviews, so that you can keep your fans up to date. Using the 5 social media platforms can also help you re-connect with the attendees so that you can then share and promote your special offers with them. This will grow your presence online and will allow you to grow your relationship event after the event is over.
