The benefit of sharing your event online are many. Mostly it’s free to post your event online. I started my search by simply searching for “submit your event” or “post your event” and way too many choices came up.
While writing this article, I searched through and posted to around ten event posting websites. My only complaint that it was time-consuming! On the other hand and it was free.
Best places to share your event online
While I did not find a true best place, I did find some that might be better than others. The real trick here seems to be to match your audience with the king of event posting site. That turned out much harder than I thought it would be because my audience would likely be into rock music, plays and Christian music. So I found places like:
Christian Concert Alerts – Lists only Christian events, and is owned by AttendStar. You should also list with iTickets.com, which is a competitor of AttendStar, but we like them anyway
Your local radio station – I did find out that most local radio stations have an event calendar
Local blogs and websites – I found a few in almost every city, I searched for “Nashville event listings” or “Nashville Calendar of events.”
The more I work with events, the more I learn how hard it is and how detail oriented it becomes to get great publicity for your event. The hard thing it seems is trying to figure out where people hear about your event. Targeting your message seems to be the hardest part.
Sometimes it might be best just to brainstorm with someone. Kim Mangels is a team member here at AttendStar, and you are welcome to call her regardless if you currently ticket with us or not. She can be reached at (615) 823-1169.
