Tips and Tricks for a Successful Online Event
The coronavirus pandemic caused a halt to large events worldwide, so organizers are looking at different ways of continuing business as usual by resorting to virtual events. For this reason, the number of virtual events shoots up since the start of the quarantine period. These online event platforms are designed to duplicate real-time activities such as registration, certification, participation, and interaction. If you are looking for tips in looking for the ideal virtual event platform in the Philippines, this article will help you.
- Identify your objectives.
Planning is the key to a successful online event, much like an in-person event. Begin with thinking of a strategy in mind because your goals will dictate which platform would be beneficial for you. Which objectives are you trying to achieve? Consider whether you are driving awareness about your brand, expanding customer relationships, or simply communicating with your participants. The most important point to consider in planning virtual events is to prioritize audience engagement. A fun way to do this is through Instagram and Facebook Augmented Reality filters (https://youtu.be/RASboMpnZus).
- Think about convenience.
Many of your attendees would want to participate in using their mobile phones so it is important to consider this as well. Choose an online event platform that supports mobile devices for their interactive features so your attendees can join wherever they are.
In the Philippines, Webplay Virtual Experience by Waveplay Interactive offers the most convenient virtual event tool.
