Time management is essential when planning an event. In this article I’ll share some tips to help you maximize your productivity.
- Set goals before you begin to execute. Keep your goal brief and clearly defined, and distribute them, as well as you event guidelines, to all your team members. The clearer your goals, the more you can narrow down your options and thus effectively shorten the decision making process.
- Set clear target dates and deadlines. A fixed time limit will create the pressure needed to keep you and your staff on target so that you are not scrambling at the last minute.
- Work with an online ticketing system (like Yapsody of course) that is simple to use, has all the flexibility you need to manage your inventory and sales, and allows you to collect your money directly without the hassle of dealing with ticketing company surcharges.
- Social media marketing is one of the easiest, least costly, and most effective promotional tools available for helping you to connect with thousands of fans within a very short period of time. The ability to instantly post your Yapsody events on Facebook and Twitter is available at the time you create your event and takes practically no time, thus leaving you with more time to complete those last minute items on your to-do list.
Using these tips and suggestion will help you to manage your time and increase your chances for a successful event. Hope you like this article and suggestions.
