One thought on “blog on blog

  1. Hi there couldn’t help but notice this post! Great ideas here ad obviously many you can insert into the sidebar with widgets so it all interlinks (Twitter, Faceboook, etc.) A fan page can work quite well on Facebook and you can get an RSS feed from the blog feeding into that, so fans can read updates that way. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Js9Xhui32UA)

    Created in Birmingham have made their fan page at http://www.facebook.com/CreatedinBirmingham work particularly well.

    I’ve found Twitter worked well for me with @digbethisgood, it’s a good way to come across information and make last minute announcements (again, readers of just the blog an read Twitter updates in the sidebar).

    Foursquare – I’m unsure of how effective this is, although it can work quite well for venues looking to get more numbers. People who become Mayor http://www.urbancoffee.co.uk/ (who have a great web presence) get a free coffee, that type of thing, which encourages visitors to ‘play’.

    Like the use of the Flickr group – perhaps you could arrange Flickr walks of the area with group members to make it a more social thing like http://www.flickr.com/groups/birmingham_flickrmeets/ ?

    Also think about creating a unique hashtag for your event (#caldmorefest ?) and encouraging people to post updates online – tag their tweets, Flickr photos, Audioboo’s, etc. and crowdsource peoples’ experiences of the festival.

    Hope this helps. Nicky
