Emails packed with information about virtual events. Send impressive emails, creative ones. Everything connected with the event. Right down to changes related to the event. Don’t forget emails and encourage feedback post the event.

    Apart from engaging email content and effective imagery, email marketing strategy for virtual events should use email automation tools such as MailChimp to avoid the likelihood of emails ending up in spam.

    4. Build Up Anticipation

    To ensure the virtual event does not end up begging for attention and attendance, see to it the build-up given to the virtual event is marked with surprises, including the odd sneak preview. Stay engaged ahead of the virtual event, build anticipation, and regularly share information about the event. Think of it as a movie release. Get the teaser trailer ready. Build hype and get people talking about the virtual event. Use social media to the fullest to attract attendance. The excitement should be infectious. People should be clamoring for the event to happen. Share footage of the preparations being made for the event. Include short bios of guest speakers. The sneak-peek previews should pique interest in what it will be like on the big day. Use the training engine.

    5. Let Social Media Work For You

    It’s the age of social media. Promoting events, both physical and virtual, using the reach of social media is the norm these days. Social media ensures information about the planned virtual event is passed on to the relevant audience. Social media is perhaps the most effective and cost-effective marketing tool these days. Sharing information about your virtual event on your company’s social media pages should be the first thing in your virtual event marketing strategy. Also, take advantage of data modeling.

Final Thoughts

Email is the easiest way to publicize a virtual event. Also, the cheapest! Another is website copy. The email, as well as the website copy, should make potential participants feel valued. Also, get onboard experts and influencers to host the event to interest attendees! Optimize the landing pages and use Q&A sessions to engage with the audience. Remember hosting a virtual event does not mean it wouldn’t take time.

A lot of time and resources would have to be invested, and data modeling and pattern building take time. Virtual events are easier to ‘’hold” than physical ones. Also, they enable businesses to access bigger and larger audiences. Thereby helping increase revenues and track important facts about targeted customers. An online event to attract leads and accomplish conversions requires an ideal virtual event marketing strategy.
