The new buzzword for everything is that there’s an App for that. Overused fer sure!
I could always share using the LINK function (and I did). Great for immediate response and social reach but it falls down the wall as time passes.
I could setup an Event on my page directing them to the Eventbrite registration but there’s an inherent problem when you promote an event yet have event registration outside of Facebook. Since Facebook allows you to say that you are attending – many people miss the part about having to go to the registration page as well. You end up with people showing up at the door, not on your list, who swear that they RSVP’d. That’s never a good thing, right?
Down the road I might make it fancy, might make it jazzy, add some social interaction (comments, share) but for now I think I’ll just leave it as is.
You could click on either of those titles to see the Eventbrite for each or better yet… http://www.facebook.com/MikeMuellerConsulting?sk=app_195451307146320
BTW: Did you notice the icon for the App?
Yup, that’s a little yellow school bus! Pretty special, eh?
