Link Share Friday – March 6, 2015

CustomNEWS, Inc.Social media, marketing and strategy are the topics of this week’s link share post.

  • This article talks about the importance of visual elements in social media posts. Other than the suggestion to use a mascot, show daily content can be turned into social media posts. Rather than posting a blog entry without a photo, or a stock image, scroll through the images from your last conference. Find a photo of a presenter speaking on a related topic. Turn your “Man on the Street” interview into a slideshow with quotes and images. Keep the art of repackaging in mind when determining what questions you will be asking attendees.

  • Association executives often tell us that their conference doesn’t generate enough news to warrant publication of a show daily.

Publishing a show daily creates a tool for increasing the buzz about a conference, before, during and after it concludes!
