Before the event
- Share link to join the event within your communication channels
- Personally reach out to members of your group and ask them if they are available - don't just assume that other members have seen your event and are going to show up
- Provide updates before your event within your communication channels (Meetup, Whatsapp etc.) to excite those who have signed up or tempt those that are on the fence.
- Livestream your event or post stories up
- Take photos/ group selfies
After the event
- Post the photos up in all of your communication channels so other members can see what they missed out on - Social proof is often all they need to turn up next time.
- Celebrate - thank those who came out publicly by giving them a shout out
- Personally thank those members that make up the core of your group
- Ask for input into the next event... what can be done to make it an even better experience next time - bring other members on your journey!
