You throw a great event.

We’ll take care of your social media.

It’s easy to think that you’ll have time during your event to tweet updates, post pics to Instagram, and answer Facebook messages. The truth is your event will be it’s absolute best if you focus on your logistics, vendors, and guests and leave the social up to the experts.

How it Works

  • 1We meet and talk through your schedule. We set goals, identify key audiences and people who deserve recognition like sponsors or volunteers. We agree on a hashtag and talk about how best to integrate social signals into your event.
  • 2We send you a “run-of-show” so you can confirm our brand voice is on point.
  • 3You give us access to your social accounts and we post during the final weeks leading up to your event to encourage registrations and “ramp up” the activity level.
  • 4We arrive to your event and set-up near your HQ. We handle all posting and most replies, escalating only complex questions to you or your staff.
  • 5Your guests are encouraged to participate on social through giveaways and competitions that we manage.
  • 6You focus on running your event knowing that social is taken care of.

Key Benefits

  • Increased Event Attendance

    For recurring or multi-day events, showing off exactly what’s happening during your events will increase excitement and encourage people to get off their computers and come to your event!
  • Better Sponsorship Satisfaction & Retention

    For sponsored events, you can increase the value of sponsorship by offering more social media exposure. This leads to greater sponsor revenue and/or retention. You can even sell a social sponsorship to have their logo added to the watermarks of all the pictures we post!
  • Engaged Entertainment and/or Speakers

    Working with great speakers or acts? We engage with them during our build-up and make it easier for them to cross promote your event to their audience. Your participants are given the links to help them connect with the talent that makes your event shine.
  • More Social Media Engagement

    Being active on social media during your event inspires your attendees to do the same, leading to more promotion within their networks of friends.

Relax, we’ve got this covered

  • Logistics Questions

    Sometimes there’s no other way to ask a question about parking, hours, or pricing except to reach out to the event’s Twitter or Facebook. We get all those logistic questions from you up-front and then provide quick replies (most within 5 minutes) during the event. If there’s a complex question, we are on-site so we can get an answer.
  • Sponsor Recognition

    You provide us a list of sponsors and their levels or activity promised. We do the research to find their Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts and guarantee the # of posts promised to them.
  • Volunteer Recognition

    Volunteers LOVE to get a digital “Thank You” that they can show off to their friends. Participants like the chance to “like” the hard work your volunteers are doing.
