Your event, your hashtag

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Wondering how to promote your event or how to unify all the information about it? We got the perfect idea for you.

Yes, you can create an official account in every social network for your celebration. We know you thought about it. Nevertheless, the key is to come up with a great hashtag in order to group all the information, photos and videos through a simple filter.

A hashtag is a label used in social networks to find, easily, messages with a specific theme. That’s why it’s a perfect tool to track all the content that surrounds your event.

For example, during the latest Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) the hashtag #E32016 was introduced and now the label #Euro2016 is used for the Eurocup France 2016. Those are huge events, but you can take the idea for your wedding, bar mitzvah or birthday.

Concept

Nowadays there are lots of hashtags ideas for weddings. One of the most popular is to add the last name to Mr. and Ms. (#MrandMsOldman). Another idea is to mix “Happily Ever” with any name or last name: #HappilyEverHarrison. Also you can just use the common “#MeganLovesJustin”.

When you are creating a crafty hashtag, less is better because long labels are difficult for users.

Remember that hashtags don’t support spaces, punctuation marks and special characters, such as $, %, ^, &, *, +, etc. Meanwhile, don’t forget to use the symbol “#” before the group of words.

Hashtags are compatible with the Big-3 of social networks: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

If you think this idea is silly, we leave you a significant statistic taken from the last eMarketer report: “Approximately 2.34 billion people, or 32.0% of the global population and 68.3% of internet users, will access a social network regularly in 2016”.

Facebook new hand-picked event listings

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The human hand has a particular touch. That’s why Facebook decided to hire a group of new employees that are now in charge of this social network’s new addition: Featured Events List for iOS users.

What’s that about? Well, Facebook’s curators will search for the top events in 10 American cities and then they will make a filter with the best ones, so you can find them easily in your phone.

This new feature is now available for Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington D.C. Soon more locations will be added.

Previously, Facebook used algorithms to sort events in sections (Ex. “Popular with Friends” or “Suggested for you”). Now, the human hand has the last word.

 “What we do is have a team of people who are basically looking at events on Facebook that have broad appeal, that a lot of people could go to, and they’re highlighting ones they think will be good to list out,” said Facebook Events product manager, Aditya Koolwal, during an interview with Tech Crunch.

In a few words, it’s a nice feature that will allow you to see the coolest events in your city. It’s also a perfect way to promote the cultural offer of any spot in the world.

For now we’ll have to wait until the list of cities is expanded, because remember that around 550 million people use Facebook Events each month.

5 simple steps to plan your party

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Planning a good party is quite a challenge because you need to take in consideration several matters. From the number of guests to the decoration, there’s lots of work to do. So, don’t lose your mind and follow these five steps to create a perfect atmosphere for every single person that will accept your invitation.

1.- Calculate your guest list

Sit down with patience and start writing the names of your guests. Meanwhile keep any social network open (Ex. Facebook) to easily find people you could invite to your event. Also think about your different social circles to avoid forgetting someone. We suggest the use of applications to save the name and contact of every guest (Ex. Attendium). Later you will have the final number to move on to the next step.

2- Define your budget

It’s easy to avoid spending money arbitrarily when you know what you want. Just define if you will include furnishing, decor, staging, lighting, live music, D.J., catering, liquor, staffing, etc. Once you got the checklist, stick strictly to it and then investigate prices. Take your time because being in a hurry will only cause trouble.

3.- Pick a date

This stage is vital. Remember to choose a date that is convenient for your guests. Also try not to coincide with other important parties. In conclusion, make sure you take in consideration holidays, other events and work hours.

4.- Choose a location

Depending on the budget calculated, elaborate a list of places where you would like to organize your party. Avoid exceeding the capacity of the location and also avoid choosing a big venue for just a few guests. Remember the existence of neighbors, in case you are planning to use a house or a building’s party hall.

5.- Hire security

Your guests want to feel safe. That’s for sure. Always try to hire security, especially for the entrance. The guards should have the list of invitees and it’s better if you give the command to deny the access to anyone that’s not in that paper.

D.J. or band at your party? Why not Both?

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

When it comes to throwing a fabulous party, putting great elements together equal success. That’s why the music for your event should come from two different sources: a Disc Jockey (D.J.) and a cover band.

The D.J. brings the art of mixing and spinning music. The host or hostess can work with him or her, to choose songs for specific moments of the night or to build a playlist based on the target of his or her festivity. These are all a “must” at every event. However, this man will not work alone because a set of flashing lights, maybe some fog and a bit of fire will add a fantastic mood to his or her services. It’s simply instant fun.

On the other hand, live music is a golden treasure. When it comes to this kind of entertainment, there’s no better feeling than hearing a song played live by a good cover band. Also, it’s perfect for the audience to be able to interact with musicians, something that will cheer up the crowd. In a few words, a cover band is practically an undisputable victory. Just make sure you hear them live before taking the step of hiring them.

So… aren’t these two options a perfect fit for a party? Yes! Let the D.J. set the tone during most of the night and also bring high peaks of emotion with live music (two or three sets). We guarantee that you will not regret it. Just take in consideration that hiring both services increases the cost of your event.

Remember: variety maximizes the experience.
