Before setting up the date, do a little research first. Check your calendar and make sure that there are no significant holidays that would interfere with attendance. You might want to check the analytics also to see when your target audience is usually online.
2. Utilize social media. If your goal is to gather more audience and participants for your digital event, you need to promote it.
