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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

Exploring The Sea Cruise Royal Caribbean

CRUISING ALONG.... Once we deposited our bags in our cabins, we had our buffet meal at the Hammerjack restaurant and exactly at 4pm, we heard a loud Horn signal...  ITS TIME TO SAIL ALONG THE PACIFIC OCEAN! And while the ship started to sail, we humans started to walk and explore.... to familarize ourselves inside the ship....  Elevators on each side of the ship....  Making my mark....  On another side....  We walked along to check out our food outlets... This Promenade Cafe  had became our regular joint .... We like to sit there enjoying our hot drinks and desserts... Free flow of food day and night.... Passing through the bars to the casino... The casino will open only when the ship is in international waters...  At one of the jackpot machines... I wonder if they are real?? But they are only $1 bundles... Then we went up to the highest floor.... The swimming deck.... Taken against the sun.... Nice sunset in the evening.... The Happy Trio!

First Day In The Royal Caribbean Cruise To Mexico

ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT.... gently down the sea....  Royal Caribbean, it is my second time following this giant vessel, the first time was from Singapore to Phuket, that was a very nice cruise.  So when my son mentioned that he found a good deal online, this time to Mexico, I agreed without hesitation.  Let's Go! A three nights stay with food and lodging only cost around $250 per person with at least one senior in per room.  Meals were either buffet style or fine dining, we can choose and cafes were opened 24 hours for us to rest and relax.  How not to resist... LOL...  And so here we are... just one week after landing in US, I was on the sea....  Looks small from afar...  It was a giant vessel with at least 14 floors.... On the way to embarking after Custom Clearance...  Our room for the next three nights....  Small and cosy.... And adjoining to my son's family room through a door...  The one with balcony cost a bit more...  A short briefing about safety after we checked in....
