Facebook and Outdoor Movies
When it comes to outdoor movies
, facebook is a great tool to promote your event or movie in the park series. Creating a facebook page for your organization or film series will spread the word about your events, and will provide a framework for creating facebook events and advertising related to your outdoor movie events. If you create an event for each of your outdoor movie screenings, your guests can invite their friends to the outdoor theater screening, and they'll be reminded of your event each time they look at their facebook calendar. You can provide special prizes such as a free bag of popcorn or discounts to concessions for those who have joined your facebook page, or who are on the guest list for your event. There are many ways to advertise and spread the word about outdoor movies on facebook, so make sure to include this priceless social media outlet when planning your event or next outdoor movie film series.
Twitter and Outdoor Movies
Tweeting about your outdoor movies is a really great way to bring out the crowds. Increase the frequency of your tweets as you approach your event, and you'll be certain to get additional people in attendance at your screening. Be creative about how you use twitter to promote your event. В For instance, you can have a live twitter feed on your inflatable movie screen before the event, with a feed of posts that feature the name of your organization or your event in a hashtag. You could have a live trivia game, and encourage audience members to tweet their answers in reply on your twitter page. The winners of the game could receive prizes from local businesses or others who wish to donate to your cause. Twitter can provide some fun and creative ways to keep your audience participation alive at your outdoor movie event, and can also help you in drawing out a big crowd, so make sure to also include twitter in the planning of your next movie at the park film series.
Foursquare and Outdoor Movies
are the perfect place to utilize foursquare, as the social media outlet requires participants to check in at a specific location. Encourage audience members to check in at your event via foursquare for a chance to win a prize. You can hide special tokens or simply choose a random participant who has checked in for a prize from a local business or sponsor of your event. When an audience member checks in to your event, their entire network will see that they are at your outdoor movie screening, and you'll be advertising your event to many people who aren't in attendance. This will help grow your events as they progress in your film series, and pretty soon you'll have thousands in attendance. Foursquare has the potential to make your outdoor movie series fun and exciting, so make sure to use it during your next event.
There are a handful of other social media outlets that are useful to incorporate in your outdoor movie event series, so be creative when planning how you'll reach out to your audience before, during, and after your events. You'll reap big rewards when using social media outlets. You'll see your attendance grow, donations increase, and the image of your organization boosted when you plan a media campaign that effectively uses a variety of social media campaigns.
