Are you struggling to create content that grabs the attention of your event attendees and serves for a more extended period? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
As an event host or a marketing ace, you must have heard the famous Bill Gates’s statement on marketing: “Content is king.” If you are running events, you have to give kudos to Gates for setting up a top-notch standard for content that every event marketer agrees to.
These days, with most event organizers relying on virtual event platforms for their brand or product marketing, everyone involved in the event’s success heavily relies on content more than ever.
The real question is how to choose the right tone or theme for your event content. In addition, what can you do to maximize your content to increase ROI before, during, and after the event?
To help you with this, we have mentioned tips for creating content for automation, repurposing, and better ROI.

Content promotion is effective for businesses looking for ways to reach a wider audience for their event. You certainly have a similar goal associated with your virtual event and its success. Here are some ideas that can help you create and promote event content.
No matter how interactive you think your event is, the attendees will not have the energy to watch every session of your virtual event. Here is when you can curate essential content for them. For instance, you can grab critical quotes from each virtual event session and put them in a round-up. This process will help your attendees capture all the relevant insights into the event and give your content a second life.
During the event, excellent points or anecdotes can wow the audience. But what happens a week after the launch of the event? You must ensure your content reaches the right audience and grabs the limelight it deserves. Therefore, turning data points into social objects like videos, images, or text items can spread your content further.
The atomization does not stop with your recent event. Instead, hashtags like #ThrowbackThursday or #Blastfromthepast offer the opportunity to bring the content back to life. With the previous content, you can also market your upcoming events by simply attaching a popular hashtag.
Like other marketers, you must also put a lot of time and effort into creating an online event. With so much hard work, you can not simply be satisfied with the engagement only during the event. Instead of letting the work vanish to a mere flash in the pan, you can repurpose your event content on other channels to squeeze the appreciation juices to the fullest.
Repurposed content is relatively popular these days and also highly beneficial. If you are stuck on the idea that only original content is king, you might need to think again. As per a survey by Databox, repurposed content often yields better results than the original content.
So now that you’re aware of how important it is to repurpose your event content to other channels, here are some ways to do it.
With a blog post you can do wonders for your content. You can create a much easier blog post with your content. All you have to do is download a recording of the event and transcribe the audio. Lastly, publish the transcribed blog post on your company website.
There is no denying that videos are ruling the content world. Landing pages containing videos tend to grab better traffic and deliver a better conversion rate than text or images. It is primarily because videos are more engaging and interactive.
Therefore, you might want to step out of your comfort zone and put some effort into creating a video to repurpose your event content.
Social media is a fantastic place to keep your content alive for a long time. You can share the repurposed event on your company’s social profiles in video, text, or images and attract a larger audience.
You can post a short video compilation of funny bloopers or backstage preparation before your event. Furthermore, you should share the best pictures from the event on your Facebook or Instagram.
You might have heard of this idea before, but never really got the time to push your first podcast for production. Well, now is your chance to join the podcast revolution. Podcasts are in demand, and with your repurposed video content, you can also become part of the hype. You must download the audio, use a sound editor, and export it as an MP3 file for publishing.
Creating excellent content takes a lot of time. Therefore, your event content should not be a one-use wonder.
When it comes to creating content for virtual events, you have to go beyond creating stuff that will be used during the event. Pre-event content is necessary as the content used during and after the event.
Pre-event content should generate brand awareness before the event launch, drive registration, and build anticipation.
Whether creating content for social media marketing, email campaigns, or ads, you must keep the goal in mind: generating as much event hype as possible.
Following are the pre-event content must-haves:
Finally, the big day is here. On the event launch day, you must position your content to deliver the experience you promised the attendees.
You not only have to choose the right virtual event platform, but also make sure the content created leaves the audience amazed. Your content should be able to engage your audience with the brand.
While popular virtual event platform like vFairs handles your event’s management, engagement, and other factors, here are the critical elements for creating content during the event:
By now, you have put some backbreaking work into planning and producing content that will promote your event and keep it interactive. However, with post-event content, you can keep the magic alive.
Here are the post-event content tips for you to maximize your efforts:
There is just so much you can do with a fantastic event. However, the key is to ensure you create content that comes to life before the event launch and stays alive for an extended period. The above mentioned tips and tricks will help you achieve this goal, and make your event useful well beyond its running time.
