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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
