  • Charm your audience:Think about your guests and what they like in general. Knowing about their interest, lifestyle and daily schedule can help you to plan an event that they will enjoy.
  • Team up: Team up with a business that is not in the same sector as you so you can help each other out by sharing your customers and also by promoting each other’s businesses.
  • Choose the ideal time for the eventCheck with your audience and see the best time that would suit them before finalising the date of the event. If your audience consists of parents, they might have other commitments with their children so choose a time and day that fits in with the majority of the crowd’s schedule.
  • Ensure the location is perfect for the event: The location is a key focus of any party or function so ensure it’s the perfect location to showcase your business and products. The food, décor and ambience must compliment the theme of the business and your event so keep that in mind before selecting your venue.
  • Deliver excellent customerservice: Throughout the event, ensure your guests get nothing but the best in terms of customer service so hire an experienced team of people to look after your guests. This will showcase your business and its ethics so make sure it’s top-notch.
  • Get the contact information of all your guests: Get the contact details of all your guests as you never know when you might need them. Keep them updated about your business via your Facebook page or email newsletters etc. on a regular basis. There is a fine line between keeping in touch and spamming so make sure you stay within the limit. Encourage them to share your business details with their friends and families and you do the same for them.
  • Get feedback after the event: In case you need to host another event, it is important to track how you went with this one so contact your guests after a week or so and get some feedback on how they felt about the whole thing. This could help you to decide what was good and bad and plan your next event much more precisely.

It can be a nerve-wrecking task to go about it alone so have a trusted friend or two to help out. Even better if you are able to hire an event planner who has ample experience in putting together events like this.

Make sure you plan everything a few weeks or at least a month in advance in order to avoid last minute disappointments.
