PROMOTING YOUR EVENT
MMC distributes thousands of flyers and postcards across the city, has an active social media campaign and offers a searchable map/schedule and app, but we have over 200 events to promote in only one day! Help the effort by spreading the word about yours.
An excited and enthusiastic audience makes an event fun! Here are some suggestions to get people excited and informed:
• Tag #makemusicchicago on all platforms.
• Tag @makemusicchicago on Facebook and @makemusicchi on Instagram and Twitter
• Keep text brief and always include a visual.
• Videos are best, so people can see your performers in action!
• For budding smartphone photographers, horizontal shots look best!
• Post small and post often to keep audiences engaged.
• Download posters to post around your venue.
• Try parks, cafés, community centers, music schools, senior centers and local businesses.
• Always ask permission before placing a poster.
