If you’re an active Twitter user, you’re probably aware of the ability to reach out to a large audience with the power of a single tweet.
During the days leading up to an event, it is increasingly common to see both confirmed and prospective attendees exchange information ranging from activities on the event day to discussing, or tweeting about why people should definitely consider attending. If the event’s a conference or one that has a panel of respected speakers, such online discussions add substantially to any pre-event marketing effort due to the increased level of communication related to the event.
doattend Live is an extension of your event page, that streams live tweets and photos tagged on Flickr. Collate what everyone’s talking about into a web page that’s accessible to anyone through a web browser.
Take a look at the Live page that’s been setup by one of our event organizers, for the NASSCOM Product Conclave 2010 conference, to see what’s on offer.
Visitors to the Live Page are immediately presented with tweets from the specified twitter handle:
Scrolling down further, latest tweets with the official twitter hash tags for the event are displayed along with photos from flickr. Visitors to the Live page can then join in on the conversations by making use of the tweetbox to tweet about the event.
Live page content is automatically refreshed so visitor’s can merely gaze at the page without having to hit the refresh button on their browsers.
Live is an excellent add-on for conferences and other events taking place in enclosed venues, such as a conference hall. By displaying your event’s Live page on plasma/LCD screens across the venue, your attendees can stay updated on all event related buzz.
To setup your Live page, just login to your account, navigate to the Promote Page from your event dashboard and select “Live Page”.
