You don’t need us to tell you that the social media revolution is here to stay. But how can you share an event taking place in the heart of London with the rest of the world? Or share a buzzing festival up in Scotland with your mates in China?
Exposure is often what grows events – but it can be time consuming. Over here at Ticket Tailor HQ, we've decided to bring you some of a top tools for event organisers to share their events with the global community.
Cover it Live allows event organisers (or their bloggers) to blog about their events in real time or “LiveBlog”. This service is great for conferences or any type of business events as it allows readers to interact with content in real time. So if your event involves live coverage of a sport for example, Cover it Live is a great way to bridge the communication gap between your reporters and your audience.
No event is complete without copious amounts of pictures taken, uploaded and shared! If a dedicated platform for sharing your event photos to Facebook with one click sounds up your street – check out Social PIX. Social PIX is an experiential photo solution for Facebook where you can create stories and gain fans by instantly uploading photos to both your page and fan’s walls. The simple to use interface is great for saving time – and gaining fans!
With a similar interface to Facebook, Socializr is an event based social network in its own right. You can add, search other events and invite people to your events. It offers hundreds of customisable templates for you to design and send out invites to your event. Unlike other event invite services, Socializr lets you upload audio and video to go with your invite – perfect!
Have you ever thought about those who would have loved to attend your event but couldn’t be there? Or those who’d like a sneak preview of your event before attending? Well if you’d like to make these people rather happy, Live Stream is the way to do it. Live Stream allows you to literally stream – and watch – events as they happen. This means you can share a party in Glasgow with your fans in India – and all in real time.
So you've got all the sharing tools needed for your event – the last thing to do is to make sure fans and guests can buy tickets to your event directly from their social media. With Ticket Tailor’s Facebook Integration tool, you can make your tickets a click away from Facebook fans. Once installed, our app automatically keeps up to date with your Ticket Tailor box office. What’s more, this is totally free on all of our packages.
