As a follow up to our most recent post, we’ve decided to give a few more shout-outs to three more awesome social media tools for easy event planning. The tools that we are about to mention will help you and your organization with content organization and sharing, evaluating your event, connecting with attendees and helping involved parties get around town.
Let’s get started!
Google My Maps
This tool is especially great if your event involves more than one venue, or if your attendees are travelling to you from out of town – make your attendees happy by creating a map for them! It takes the guesswork out of their day and they are more likely to visit each venue.
It’s easy (and free!) to create a custom map using the My Maps tool, but if you’re feeling stuck or confused we highly recommend checking out this support page. It will walk you through all the necessary creation and sharing steps.

Slideshare is a great tool for events that make use of presentations, so this is right up your alley if your organization is holding an arts education or theatre management conference featuring multiple speakers and presentations. By creating an account for the event you can gather and host all of the speakers’ presentations in one place – easy to find, easy to share!
With over 60 million unique visitors a month, this tool also offers a unique form of advertising through the sharing of knowledge. Users have access to presentations, infographics, webinars and so much more! Best yet, it’s completely free to use and easily linked with your organization’s other social media accounts.
Make use of your social media channels and current connections by engaging with potential attendees before your event, and actual attendees afterwards. This allows you to go straight to the source to find out what your attendees hope to see, where your event excelled, and also where there’s room for improvement.
PollDaddy offers a few different levels of subscriptions, which range from free personal accounts to corporate accounts at $899/year. There is truly something for every person and organization, so start asking those questions!CC Image by secretlondon123
