Three Ways to Incentivize Blogs to Talk About Your Event!

10 Sep

The best and easiest way to get the word out about your events is to get other people talking about them. By rewarding fans for sharing, FanFueled ignites peer-to-peer marketing throughout the entire social graph. We’ll get fans talking about your events, but there a bunch of other voices and channels out there that can help accelerate your marketing efforts as well. Here are a few tips on how to incentivize one of these avenues – blogs – to promote your events.

1. Embeddable Checkout Carts w/ Promoter Tracking.
Every event on FanFueled comes equipped with a small line of code that allows event organizers to embed a checkout cart on their site. We can assign promoter tracking to these carts so that blogs can add it to their site and receive credit for every sale that they influence. Instead of simply asking a blog to promote your event, you’re adding them as a promoter and honoring their reach with a percentage of every sale. (And you’re providing them with all of the tools to complete a transaction)!

2. FanFueled Referral Links.
If you do not want to allocate the resources to assign commission percentages to blogs, allow us to do that for you! Purchase a ticket for your event and give the blog the referral link. For every sale that comes through that link, FanFueled will give a percentage of the service fees to the account holder.

3. Engage Action.
As an incentive, tell the blog that we’ll promote them on FanFueled Engage. We’re always happy to introduce our fans to new blogs, so we’ll add an action that prompts our fans to share the blog with their friends.

We’re here to help you get the word out, so please let us know if you have any questions on these and we look forward to working with you!
