My partner and I are holding an entrepreneurial workshop for women in less than two weeks time in order to raise funds for our startup as we do not have enough visitors and buyers to buy or visit our marketplace. We aim to invite at least 50 people to join this event in so that we could give back something to our venue sponsor as we promised to help them to market their services as well. We can't afford to pay for Google or Facebook ads because it's way too expensive for us, the conversion rate is x4 if converted. (MYR)
What we have done so far to get people to participate:
1. Call and message potential friends and family who is interested in the topic of the event (entrepreneurship for women)
2. Share on social media
Over the 2 weeks we have only receive confirmation of less than 10 participants who wanted to join the seminar because of the free 10 early bird seating. But sadly, it has been fully taken and the late comers are unwilling to pay for a small fee of MYR48 for women and MYR62 for men.
How and what can I do in order to market the event without breaking the bank?
