At your core, Live Events are all about bringing community together. Whether this was once only in a physical sense doesn’t matter in this day and age. Digital communities are integral to any kind of live event. While the rise of social has enabled live events the opportunity to connect with their audience outside their one-time, live moments, it also comes with its own challenges.
Social has democratized live event’s reach on a worldwide stage, which has also brought an onslaught of competition and noise. How do you stand out? How do you connect 1:1?
Additionally, your community is so diverse that your messaging can’t be too broad, it won’t relate to anyone, but it can’t be too specific either. Or can it?
Social commerce confronts all the challenges, introducing the new era of connection that is seamless, instant, and completely personalized.
It doesn’t matter if you are a small bootstrapped venue for indie bands, a virtual meetup, or a 100,000 person festival, anyone can leverage conversational marketing, to boost their audience size, retention, nurturing and bottom line, conversion.
