Three Ways You Can Utilize Social Media and get the best out of your After Dinner Speakers

It is easy to get complacent once you have booked after dinner speakers. You will be excited about their appearance and believe everything else will fall into place around them. If you really want to get the most out of your after dinner speakers, then you should utilize their appearance through social media channels. Here are three ways that you can do this.

1. Facebook

If you want to get the best out of your after dinner speakers, then it is imperative that you establish a presence for your event on the world’s largest social network, Facebook. To get an idea of how big Facebook actually is consider this: if Facebook was a country, in terms of population it would be the third largest in the world. It is now the cornerstone of your average person’s online activity. Set up an events page for your night and invite your guest through here. This will serve as a platform for people to converse about the event, as well as another channel for you to communicate information.

2. Twitter

Twitter is the hot new platform in social media. Its growth rate has been astonishing. The number of Twitter users increases by 300,000 each day. You can utilize Twitter by creating a hash tag for your event. Publicise this hash tag before, during and after your event, getting your guests to tweet about what’s happening and what they’re looking forward to. There is a chance that the after dinner speakers you have booked are on Twitter and have a lot of followers. Why not ask them to get the ball rolling on your event and send out a few ‘tweets’ about it?

3. LinkedIn

Once you have booked after dinner speakers, invitations to your event will be among the hottest in town. The event itself will present some excellent opportunities for you to network. For one night only, you will be the toast of the town. You can capitalise on your status and networking with LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a business orientated social networking site. It is one of the oldest social networking sites on the internet and is mainly used for professional networking. Make sure you make LinkedIn connections with all the people you meet at your event.
