Promoting your event

Now you’ve picked your date, it is time to invite everyone so they know all about your virtual Go Red Day and share your JustGiving page! We’ve put together some top tips below to help you promote your event:

Send an Email
You could include the digital Go Red poster in your email with details all about your virtual event – and don’t forget to ask work if you can use their intranet to let all your colleagues know about your Go Red Day!

Social Media
If you use social media, this is a great way to invite everyone along. We recommend using Facebook as you can create an event but you can also private message people on Instagram or Twitter if you’d prefer. Remember with social media, always think about safety first – public events can be seen by everyone with an account.

WhatsApp
So many of us rely on this great app to stay in touch, so why not use it to let everyone know about your virtual Go Red Day? You could message everyone individually or set up a group.

Make a Phonecall
Not everyone uses social media, WhatsApp or checks their emails regularly, so why not pick up the phone and let them know all about your event? It is the perfect way to catch-up with people you haven’t spoken to in a while.

Contact your Local Media
Contact your local newspaper or radio station to spread the word in your community about your event. We’ve put together a press release template for you to use either before or after your event.

We are more than happy to talk through the different ways in which you can promote your virtual Go Red Day. Do just get in touch either by emailing fundraising@eveappeal.org.uk or by calling 020 7605 0100.
