The Ultimate Social Media Event Marketing Checklist [Infographic]

Having a solid social media plan in place around your marketing events is essential to boosting engagement and overall awareness. Before an event your social channels are a great way to spread the word while pulling in registrants that are not currently in your database. During an event social networks offer a unique opportunity to interact directly with your audience while empowering them to share and amplify your message. After an event, social marketing is a fantastic way to stay engaged and have the experience live on through sharing of photos, blog recaps, and session recordings.

Being active on social networks before, during, and after your event is a no longer an option but is now expected by the attendees. Since events are in real time, attendees often use social networks to get updates and to engage with other participants in a live environment. The most important part of your strategy is going to be the planning.

We have put together a sample checklist to help you prepare for the cornucopia of opportunities that events open up to a Social Media Manager. No need to take notes, this one is pulled directly from our Definitive Guide to Event Marketing.

    I agree that planning is one of the most important part of event, so there is something to be oriented at. Great IG provided, very comprehensive, thank you.

    Great info-graphic, however I’d like to add a suggestion: in the pre-phase, writing a news release and target by location and industry, submit to an online press release site; then sponsor a story using Dlvr.it. Finally, the team members can write a short, succinct note outlining agenda, speakers, and registration link and send an email to specific individuals in their Linkedin network based on their profiles as well as post the event in their own Facebook event calendar.

    Dumb question, but what is the standard approach to viewing infographics like this? On my 15″ laptop screen it is either too squished as presented, or if I view the original image I have to scroll up & down and left & right repeatedly in an attempt to read it.

    Great list for events! I wish more events followed this checklist, especially step 4 – Post Event. I feel many organizations don’t realize how important it is to monitor what is being said after an event. It’s crucial for them to see what was and was not received well by the audience and in turn learn from these certain mishaps to ensure they will not happen again. Constant feedback, good or bad, post event helps the event planners adapt to expectations of their attendees.

    Jason: Thank you for compiling this. The Infographic is super! Just one question for Ana (or anyone else): “online press release site” – can you recommend any? Sorry for my ignorance! Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    I would reccommend checking out Vocus, Prnewswire, and/ or Marketwire.

    Thanks

    It sort of depends. If you click to expand it in a new screen, it should not look squashed at all but should render quite nicely.
