Last night, I attended a fabulous event hosted by Wix. Wix is a cloud-based, drag and drop website building platform with 59 million users in 190 countries.
Each month, Wix hosts a user meetup to educate entrepreneurs on ways to grow their business. This month was all about event marketing- how to make it successful, why you should do it and how to attract sponsors.
Ashley Gallman Williams, the US Community Partnerships Manager for Wix, and Adriani Leon, Community Outreach Manager for Wix, hosted the event and provided a welcoming environment for entrepreneurs to engage with one another.
Ashley's presentation covered the how-tos behind attracting sponsors and awareness for your brand.
Representing Constant Contact, Elyse Tager, broke down the necessary pre and post action steps to throw an amazing event.
Yelp representatives, Abbie Schwarz and Morgan Remmers, shared the importance of building direct, off-line relationships and the free support that Yelp provides to small businesses who want to plan local events.
