How to Create an Event on Facebook
Let’s start with the basics. Here’s how to generate an event on your Facebook page.
Log in to your personal Facebook account, or the one associated with your club. On the sidebar located on the left, click on the “Events” tab which is underneath the heading “Explore”.
On the next page, click the “+ Create Event” button. A drop-down menu will give you a choice between creating a public or private event. Choose what works best for you (we recommend public).
Fill out the form as prompted. When you’re finished, click “Create”. It’s that simple!
Marketing Your Club Events
Knowing how to make a Facebook event is only half the battle. If you want to reap the rewards of your efforts, you must market the event in the proper ways. Here’s how.
Send Invitations Wisely
Instead of inviting every person on your Facebook friends list, only send requests to people who you know are local and likely to come. This way, you won’t get a reputation as a pushy institution or individual.
Scrutinize Your Event’s Name
Consider what your event is all about. Is it a sports event like a pickleball tournament? Or a social event like a wine and cheese mixer?
Whatever it is, make sure that your event’s name is advertising the specifics. Keep it simple and you can’t go wrong.
Make Sure to Choose the Right Images
Test out different pictures. The goal here is to entice people! Choose photos that are relevant to your event and that make it look fun.
Pad Your Event Page with Important Details
Since you’ve done such a great job of attracting people to your event page, finish things off by giving them all the information they need. Be extra clear and make sure that you include every possible detail. People appreciate knowing what to wear, the exact street address, and what to expect from your event.
Purchase Ads for Your Event
Want a little boost to get things going? Purchase a Facebook advertisement for your event.
For even better results, make sure you take advantage of the ad targeting options. This will guarantee Facebook event success.
With more guests in attendance, your country club events will be even more fun. Enjoy meeting new clients and friends as a result of your new marketing efforts!
And remember, for the best results, make sure to be super clear with your event details, to choose attractive and enticing photos, and to send invitations wisely. If you’re having trouble gaining traction, try purchasing an ad for some extra help.
