You can also partner with nonprofits. -Hold competitions on things that your audience are interested in. -Example: Costume contest -Leverage social media presence -Be sure to cater to right audience (example: younger people tend to be on instagram over facebook) -Hold a session in the beginning and end to integrate ways that your audience to check in and get a run down of the day -Play interactive icebreaker games to get the audience to feel comfortable -Examples: Among Us, Jackbox.tv, Scribble.io -Even with live events coming back, there will be integration of virtual events to make the audience feel safe -Update your website -Display everything that will be needed during the event -Keep everything organized because the event can get crazy with all the components -Make it easy for the audience to find the links needed -Communicate a lot! -Promote through giveaways to get fans excited about the event -Divide the content for the ease of audience to pick and choose what they want to tune into -Virtual sales to help struggling artists and vendors (check out Eventeny’s virtual marketplace) -Have a good mix of pre-records and live streaming -It is critical to have components that are engaging for the audience to have a strong experience -If there are no engaging components, then people do not have that fear of missing out -Need to create that moment that gets audience to come back -Give them a reason to have a conversation.
