You want your next event to be perfect. You want to make sure that you are including everyone that you can so that you are making this party the best that you can.The only way that you can do this is if you include all of your internal and external customers.But how do you do that?
1.Notify them early enough
From the first step to sending out invitations, it is essential that you keep your external customers in mind. Make sure they are notified early enough so they can make arrangements and feel good about attending a special event of yours!
2.Make them feel special
You need to work hard on making your customers feel special. Give them a reason to want to come and give their support, but don't make it so that they have any other choice in the matter! You can do this by giving them something extra for free; or offer discounts up front if you know people are coming from out of town, etc. This will help ensure more success at your party as well because they'll be feeling valued before even walking through the door!
3.Make them feel a personal touch
When you send your VIP guests a personalized letter, make it clear that they are an important part of the event and not just any other guest. Make them feel special by writing to them personally with how much pleasure their presence will bring to everyone at the party.
4.Be in constant contact with them
In order to stay ahead of your competition, it is important that you keep in contact with all the external customers. You can gain a competitive edge by staying on top of their feedback and input so they feel as though they are being heard too.
5.Give them positive feedback
Ensure the needs of your external customers are met effectively. You will want to stay up on their current status, and keep in contact with them so that you can know what is going well for them or not. Stay in touch with positive customer feedback as much as possible! Invite these people into your events, make them feel special all while keeping things moving smoothly through communication efforts from any angle at which they may come about- whether it be an email newsletter every month, a Facebook post once a week or even just taking the time to ask how someone's day has been.
Stay connected with those who give positive reviews by staying updated on their progress frequently and making sure anyone receiving negative remarks knows there is room for improvement available if given constructive criticism.
6. Use advertising and publicists
The party is going to be great, but you can't just rely on word of mouth! Make sure that your event has the right promotion and marketing strategies in place. You want people who have never been before or didn't know about it last year to show up this time around so they're able to adjust their schedules accordingly, invite friends from out-of-town if need be.
Generally any event needs to be well publicised for it to have external attendees and people who have maybe not heard of your company before. This can be achieved by early notifications, constant feedback and the use of advertising. All these combined will ensure that your event is filled with people. Good luck.
