~ EventElephant Creates A Buzz For Event Organisers with its Facebook integration application~
Dublin, London, 13 July, 2010
EventElephant, a leading European online event registration provider, launches its new Facebook integration application. Event organisers can now quickly and easily upload their events to their Facebook pages.
“Word of mouth has always been the most effective and low cost marketing strategy for event organisers”, says Eamon O’Brien, CEO of EventElephant. “Now, “world of mouth” and social networking are great ways of letting lots of people know about your event.”
Whether you are a professional event organiser selling tickets online for your music festival or seminar and conference, a university managing alumni events, a training company marketing your training modules, or a sports organiser planning a sports event or fund raiser “socialising” your events will help you increase your ticket sales. With just one click you can upload and publish your event on Facebook. From there, event planners can invite their friends and spread the word.
Social Networking platforms like Facebook are powerful tools to help event planners promote their events. Facebook is reaching more and more users every day and it’s a great way to spread the excitement about your event and reach your target customers. Fernando T. Martin, Life Festival Director comments, “EventElephant’s new Facebook integration is good news for Life Festival and music festival organisers. Our attendees are aged between 20 and 40. They all use Facebook. They all talk to each other about the gigs through Facebook. This is a great opportunity for us to be able to promote our festival and provide a direct link to sell tickets from Facebook.”
Eamon O’Brien, EventElephant’s CEO explains how technology is both revolutionising and democratising the event industry. “You don’t have to be a techie to take advantage of these tools. EventElephant’s easy to use and affordable online event software means all event planners can have professional looking websites, can invite attendees automatically and sell tickets online. With our Facebook integration event planners can now upgrade their marketing into viral conversations and create an online buzz about their event”.
