Ayloo is connected to Facebook to make it super easy for you to grow your gathering’s attendance.
If you’re not syncing your gathering to a Facebook event, you’re missing out on increased distribution via the Facebook news feed and an increased attendance rate due to conversation on the Facebook event wall!
Let’s explore how to leverage this tool to maximize your gathering’s impact on the Ayloo network.
Create a synced Facebook event for your gathering
Did you use our iPhone app to create the gathering? No problem! Simply hit this button on the gathering’s profile to create a synced Facebook event:
If you prefer the web creation form, just be sure to leave this check box checked:
Be sure to post your gathering at least 5 days before it starts to give it time to soak on the network.
Build a following
Facebook RSVP = Ayloo watch
People are more likely to watch gatherings on the Ayloo app if others have already watched it. By using Facebook to market your gathering, you’re increasing the appeal of your Ayloo listing since Facebook event RSVPs are pulled into the Ayloo app as watchers!
Slow and steady
It’s tempting to invite everyone you know to your gathering’s Facebook event all at once, but if you want to optimize attendance you should take a more strategic route.
Start by inviting a handful of friends you know will be into your gathering. Having a few Facebook RSVPs before others are invited is a good way to establish credibility. Then, slowly invite more people to maximize the news feed coverage for your gathering’s Facebook event!
Engage potential attendees
Conversation encourages attendance
Create an active conversation space on your gathering’s Facebook event wall to maintain news feed coverage over time and to provide further information for on-the-fence attendees in an engaging way.
Remember: everyone invited to a Facebook event gets notified whenever something is posted to your gathering’s Facebook event wall!
…and that’s it!
At the end of the day, Ayloo allows you to reach your audience where and when they care most about gatherings. Using this process, you can leverage the Facebook networks of your watchers to improve your gathering’s appeal to this mobile audience.
