Next thing you gotta do is invite EVERYONE. It’s like a coming-out party. It’s a way to say, “I’m really in this. It’s really happening.” It’s scary. It could even be terrifying. But if you put the work in and you do your best, you can get over it. Letting people see you perform is only an awful experience if you don’t give it your all. So, here goes.
Start with Facebook. Make a Facebook invite. Put the date and time and at the VERY top of the info, put a ticket link. Then put the details. Then put the extra stuff. But make sure that when you click on the event, the very first thing you see in the description is the ticket link. Next thing you do, put a great picture up as the banner for the event. Choose a picture people can’t refuse smiling about. Make it look GOOD. Professional.
Then, invite everyone you know. Unless you know like 5000 people. Then, invite just the people in your physical area. You can do a search in the invite panel that shows you who has said they live in your city. If you invite too many people who legitimately can not actually come, Facebook starts to limit your invitations. Careful on that one. Got it? Go!
If you use Twitter or Google Plus or any of those other magical computer applications, post the event there, too, but point the link to the tickets, not the Facebook event. Go!
Stay tuned for the next step!
