WHAT ARE THE BENEFIT OF USING FACEBOOK EVENTS?
Save Time: One advantage of using Facebook events is that it can save you a lot of time. When you want to set up an event on Facebook, the process takes only a few minutes -- you simply create a new event and enter the details for it. You also have the option of notifying certain people about the event. This is much easier than trying to call a number of people individually or send a batch of invitations in the mail.
Save Money: It is FREE to use. You simply create the event on Facebook and then send it out to your online contacts. They will see the event without you having to spend any money.
All Information is Right There: The Facebook Event will show all the needed and pertinent information - dates, times, location, cost and event schedule. And if there is a change - it is easy - change the Facebook event - and the change is global where ever that event post has been shared or added to a page.
Public vs. Private: When you set up a Facebook event, you have the option of choosing whether it is a public or private event. For Tombstone AZ community events - you want the WORLD to know about the event. The event is searchable through Facebook. The Chambers Facebook Events page is Public.
Number of Viewers: Tombstone AZ, and all the Tombstone Facebook Pages (Individual and Business) have THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of followers. The Facebook Event can be seen by an exponential number of people. The Facebook event stays relevant and current from the time it was posted until the event has ended.
Event Schedules and Information: This information can be added right to your Facebook Event in the Discussion section. It will update globally.
Posting the Event: The event can be used as a Facebook post - and all the event information is contained in one place.
CAN NON-FACEBOOK USERS SEE THE EVENTS? YES!!
OK, I'VE CREATED A FACEBOOK EVENT - NOW WHAT?
Share it: Share the event on your Facebook Business Page, and ALL different Groups and Pages that you follow.
Event Schedule and Updates: All event schedules, event updates, and other related information about the event SHOULD ALWAYS be posted on the FACEBOOK EVENT - See the image below. Post all the related information about the event as a POST. This keeps all of your information in ONE PLACE - and there is not confusion and people don't have to HUNT for an event schedule.
