  1. Give users a reason to sign up! 
  2. Re-engage your past customers and current community.
  3. Create buzz around your event on social media channels.
  4. Partner with influencers to promote your event.
  5. Leverage your site’s organic traffic with a popup on your site.
  6. Share a recap of the event afterwards to build awareness for a future event, generating a clear “FOMO” effect for next time!
  7. After your event, retarget this high-intent audience through specific social media ads and emails.
