If you are a business or an entrepreneur, you want to jumpstart your career with the help of marketing. And, there is no better way to raise awareness of your brand or company than with a corporate event. Corporate events are a great place to make contacts and sell your products and services. But, you have to get the guests to show up before you can reap the rewards. To do that, you need to understand the tricks of the trade. The following are several ways to raise the attendance at a corporate event.

Invite The Right People

Your guest list is essential. Why? It is essential because you need to invite the right people to get a response. If you aim too high and invite the great and the good of the industry, for example, there is a good chance they will be a no show. After all, they have better things to do than attend your party. So, you need to invite people that are interested and accessible. Your peers are a good place to start, as are your current clients. Make sure you only invite guests that add value but are also likely to turn up.




Send Out The Right Message

Believe it or not, the type of invite you send out has a bearing on your attendance. The reason is that certain people respond to certain invites. The younger guests on the list, for instance, will respond better to an e-vite or Facebook invite. In that case, you just have to set up a low-cost virtual mail box to send out the invites or A Facebook group. Younger people are more likely to use social media, which makes electronic invites more responsive. Someone older is likely to prefer an invite via the email. Make sure you tailor your invites to your guests.

Create A Buzz

The key to a successful event is making everyone think they want to attend. That way, your guest list will skyrocket. The best way to achieve this goal is to create a buzz around your event. In short, you want to make it seem as if it is the best party of the year. Social media is the place to start because anything on social media can go viral. And, once it goes viral, the term popularity will take on a new meaning. But, don’t be afraid to print out flyers and put up advertisements. Not everyone uses social media, and you want to hit as many people as possible.

Add Value
How do you make your event the talk of the town? You do it by giving the people added value. Quite simply, you need to give them something they want that they can’t find elsewhere. A band is a good example. A famous or semi-famous band is a good excuse to attend a party because at least they will enjoy the music. Plus, the band will inevitably bring their avid followers. Entertainment, in general, is the best idea regardless of the form it takes.

Follow these tips and your next event will have a much bigger attendance.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
