Promote Your Event
Want to promote a public event? You have options!
Marketing is the best way to promote events and sell tickets, and there are lots of ways you can market campus events to internal and external audiences.
Below are recommendations and options from the Office of Communications and Marketing:
Add Your Event to the Events Calendar
The University of Minnesota Morris has a webpage showcasing campus events: events.morris.umn.edu. This Events Calendar is the place to post a campus event and provide details to an audience of students, staff, faculty, and the public.
Visitors can search the site by category and date to find an event. Submit your event today!
Promote Your Event on Social Media
Social media is a great way to amplify event information, and there are official and unofficial social media channels available to all of us to help share event details.
Social handles and hashtags help the target audience find the event. You may also consider tagging the campus official social accounts with information about your event:
Tagging these accounts does not guarantee amplification, but it does help us identify your event for potential amplification.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more and ask about co-hosting Facebook events.
Work with Public Relations to Alert Media
Media outlets may be interested in covering events that are topical and noteworthy to their local audiences. Contact Jenna Ray at email@example.com for guidance on how best to engage media around newsworthy events.
Submit Your Poster to the Digital Signage
If you are looking for ways to create posters, there are online resources that can help you make eye-catching designs. Any posters produced can be shared with Kari Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org for upload to the digital signage.
Share your event with the campus community
Faculty should share information with their classes and colleagues. Experience has shown the best way of getting a Morris campus audience is word-of-mouth. Encouraging classes to attend through extra credit or just talking about the relevance of a lecture brings out more students.
Finally, let campus know about your event with a good old-fashioned email. Learn more about campus lists and how to use them.
