Join us and learn:

  • How to build a social media strategy that appeals to younger audiences
  • The best times of day to post your event social media messages and send emails.
  • Ways to incentivize early sales through campaigns and promotions
  • How to increase event turnout and donations by making it easy for ticket purchasers to spread the word via shares and tweets, and for those unable to attend to donate
  • Secrets from top-performing fundraisers to get trending on social media before, during and after the event

This workshop is co-presented by Darian Rodriguez Heyman and KC Fox
