Anyone of us surely have attended an online event some time in the past; perhaps you might even have attended a webinar on social media moments ago. And others still might be pondering how to host an online event, especially now that social distancing has been pretty much the norm. Here are some insights.

Live tweet your event

Start a Twitter conversation (with the correct hashtag, of course) related to your event. Ask questions. Create polls. Have people join the thread and write their insights on the event.

Use stories

And there are three big names to boot - Facebook Stories, Instagram Stories (the latter two of which can cross-post), and Snapchat. Stories make great platforms to share quick photos and videos about what's happening to your event, right now, and in real-time.

Collaborate with an influencer

And it's way much better if said influencer is the guest speaker or event host. This attracts more audience, giving your brand authority.

Encourage engagement

If you find live-tweeting or posting a story too cumbersome, you can also enable a live Q&A session during the event. You could enable live chat where participants can type questions in a chatbox as they wish, or you can gather 5-10 questions from people and announce them live.

    I can't agree more with "COLLABORATE WITH AN INFLUENCER"

    Here's the kicker: it doesn't have to cost money

    Many influencers (especially up and coming personalities with a fast growing fan base) are pretty HUNGRY for further exposure

    Just play up your existing social media campaigns to promote your events to get them onboard

    Once they are onboard, use their brand power to get even more influencers onboard

  • Virtual events still sound a little futuristic, but they've been happening since 1993 when the world's first Livestream brought us nail-biting webcam footage of a coffee maker in a mid drip. The streaming pot brewed up millions of views.

    In some ways, little has changed in 2020. On TikTok, teenagers have gone viral with sleep feeds, raking in crypto coins as they catch some zzz's. But tech and social media upgrades have opened the door to new ways to connect online, from virtual museum tours to live Q&As with astronauts in space.

    The realtime Q & A chatbox, makes it seem like a live event environment. That usually sets the minds of your event attendees at ease, when you can answer their pressing questions immediately.
