Facebook is a great place to create events because you can invite all your friends and see exactly who will attend your event and it really helps with planning the perfect event.

How to create an event

  • Head over to your Facebook Page, Select events on the left-hand side menu and then click the “+ Create Event” Blue button.
  • Head over to your Facebook Page, Select events on the left-hand side menu and then click the “+ Create Event” Blue button.

This opens a page where you can enter all the details about your event, Add a photo, Enter the Name, Location and Start and End times. You can also add details and Keywords. If your event requires tickets you can also add a ticket URL so people can go directly to your ticket vendor. Once you have complete your event, click Publish to create the new event.

This event is now published and can be seen by followers of your page or anyone you invite to the event. You can write posts in the event to update anyone who is coming to the event and also you can create polls.

Ask attendees a question via a poll

Polls are a great way to get feedback on different aspects of your event. To create a poll all you have to do is click Create Poll in the Write Something.. Section.

Events are great on Facebook and allow us an easy way to have people RSVP and to gage numbers that might attend. We use them for our Digital Elevate workshops if you are in Mildura you should pop in and join us Tuesday Mornings at 7.30AM, see digitalelevate.webdivision.com.au for details.
