60 Second Hacks to Grow Your Business: Creating a Facebook Event

In today's 60 second hack to grow your business, we will show you how to create a Facebook event.

If you've ever hosted an event for a business, you know how important it is to properly market your event. Social media is a great way to spread the word of your event.

Facebook has an event feature tied in with business pages that makes marketing your event extremely easy. Once you navigate to your business page, click on events in the left hand column. Once you are in the events tab, click create event.

Once you have opened up a new event, you can start filling in the details of your event. Be sure to add in the name, description, date and time, location, and you can even choose if it is a recurring event or one time event. We suggest adding a photo or graphic for your event as well. Make sure the size is appropriate and if you have text on the graphic that it is completely readable. If you are hosting the event with another person or company, you can add them as a co-host so they can share and market the event to their followers as well.

If your event requires tickets, you can add in the link or create tickets through Eventbrite. Once you have finished filling out all of the information for your event, you can click publish or save it as a draft if you're planning on revising it later. Be sure to invite your Facebook friends to the event and share it on your business page a few times before the event!
