What’s a seminar without an audience right? If you are looking to get more attendees for your seminar, the best way is by sending out invitations to inform people of it. However, sending out invitations can backfire at times if you are unaware of your target audience. Therefore, you have to always ensure that your invitation works in your favour. Here are some steps that might assist you in creating an attractive invitation.
Firstly, the size and formality of your seminar has a crucial role in deciding the type of invitation that you create. For example, if the seminar is an informal one, you could just use Microsoft Words to design a simple invitation. You could also make full use of social medias such as Facebook and Twitter to create a public event and invite people to join. However, if your seminar is leaning towards the more formal side, then you might have to make a few changes. A more professional invitation by a proper designer would be appreciated better. You can still use social media, but in a different way. Instead of creating an open public event, you might want to advertise your event instead. This will come across as more professional.
Secondly, if you are sending out your invitations, do not wait till the last week to do so. If possible try sending the invitations out a month before the seminar. This will provide your participants with ample time to make plans for it and also get back to you on their availability. It is important to remember not to send out the invitations too far in advance. This may cause some of your participants to totally forget about the seminar when the actual date arrives.
Thirdly, it would be extremely helpful to give your participants a reminder call two or three days before the seminar. As some of us are too busy with work or simply absent minded, the seminar date could totally slip from our minds. A reminder would ensure that attendees remember to show up. At the same time, it will also allow you to confirm on the number of attendees coming just in case you might be required to make additional preparations.
With a proper invitation, you can expect the turnout of your attendees for your seminar to be higher. This will ensure that your time and effort used to prepare for the seminar doesn’t go to waste.
