It’s been quite some time since our last post, things have gotten pretty hectic in our office. Since we’ve last chatted, we hosted a great Spanish Wine & Tapas dinner and an awesomely successful Oktoberfest.
In an effort to create more event awareness, we did somethings a little different with our social media for this event. Instead of just promoting the event prior to the actual festival, we did live postings throughout the event using the tag #BCOKTOBERFEST. In order to let our guests know what we were doing, we asked them to join the conversation on facebook, twitter, pinterest and instagram. You might be asking how we our guests knew that we wanted them to post to these outlets. If you are, below is a photo of flyers that we made and distributed throughout the event.
I'm not sure how many people actually used the QR codes but I did notice increased traffic to our pages in both likes, posts and photos throughout the day. I am deeming this effort a success, it allowed me to tell the story of the event through photos and posts, and I had a great time too. So, if your planning to attend this weekend's Fall Festival or the Harvest Wine Festival on October 21, keep an eye out for more social flyers and the other eye on our social pages. If you're luck you might even find me wandering around the event posting, tweeting, pinning or taking photos! PS- If you plan to attend Fall Festival, post on our pages using #BCFALLFEST
