I blog frequently about the benefits of using social media for event promotion. It's inexpensive, effective, and now, thanks to Cvent's new social media features, easier than ever!
As part of Cvent's August 2009 release, planners can allow event invitees to share event information to their social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. It's great free marketing for your event, and all it takes is a few clicks thanks to Cvent's new customizable options for your event summary website page.
In the page setup, just click on the Share-Save link option.
By checking this option, the ShareThis logo will appear on your event summary page.
Invitees looking at your website can click on Share-Save and update their Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Digg, Delicious, MySpace, StumbleUpon, or Reddit networks with the news of your event.
And keep in mind, because Share-Save appears on the summary page, anyone—even guests who have not registered for your event—can spread the word to all their friends and contacts.
