5 ways to market an event

Make a page for your event

This is the landing page that can describe the event and allows people to sign up. I like Eventbrite, though it takes a  commission it’s really easy to use and people can book themselves in. You don’t have to manage a spreadsheet of attendees, it takes care of payment online, and it sends reminders a day before the event to those who have signed up. It also lets you modify the URL of the event so you can use this when sharing the event on social media, in emails, and in your email signature.
