5 Marketing Tips and Best Practices
- Email your post-event video directly to attendees with a thank you message recapping event highlights. Ask attendees to share feedback on their favorite moments and what they gained from the event. Always include a call to action to view additional event content or provide a testimonial.
- Post your event recap video natively on social media platforms where your audience is most active. Develop social copy and captions that use specific language and hashtags to stir recognition from past attendees as they scroll through their feeds.
- Keep the momentum by sharing your post-event video in the weeks following your event. Repurpose snippets into ads and sponsored social posts. Integrate the video prominently on your event website and in your event follow-up emails. The more you share, embed, and promote your event video, the more opportunities for attendees to re-engage.
- Partner with influencers or speakers from your event to share the recap video with their networks. Enlisting them helps expand your video reach.
- Have your sales team follow up with past attendees interested in your company or products. Your event video gives a convenient pretext for sales calls, emails, and demos while event memories are still fresh.
Leveraging your event video strategically reminds attendees of your event’s value and strengthens their connection to your brand.
Crafting messaging and campaigns around your event video boosts engagement long after your event.
