Fast-Track Your Social Media Marketing Efforts With In-Person Events

Get your notepad out. We’re about to give you 10 ways to boost your offline experience by leveraging your online presence. 

Industry events have always been an excellent way to network and spread the word about brands and services, especially for small businesses. And, for some time, we thought these gatherings would become a thing of the past. But as the world evolves, in-person events are also making a strong comeback.

Events are a powerful business development tool that turns into a game-changer when partnered with a strong social media marketing strategy. 

Here’s a comprehensive guide on how you can seamlessly integrate the power of social media marketing to propel your B2B business growth through industry events:

1. Pre-Event Promotion: CREATE A BUZZ

Leverage your social media marketing skills to build anticipation before the event. Craft visually appealing posts across platforms, announcing your attendance and sharing event details. Engage with potential attendees, fostering interest and excitement.

2. Research and Targeting: KNOWLEDGE IS KEY

Identify key players and companies attending the event. Dive into their social media profiles to understand their interests, recent activities, and pain points. Armed with this information, you can engage in more personalized and meaningful conversations during the event.

3. Engage in Conversations: BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT

Actively participate in discussions, workshops, and sessions related to social media and business growth. Share your insights, ask thoughtful questions, and showcase your expertise. This engagement not only positions you as a thought leader but initiates valuable conversations.

4. Live Social Media Updates: REAL-TIME ENGAGEMENT

Keep your audience in the loop by posting updates or going live from the event. Focus on sharing valuable takeaways, quotable moments, and interesting discussions. Use event hashtags and tag relevant attendees and speakers to amplify your reach both at the event and online.


Create a content treasure trove during the event – short video clips, photos, and quotes. Post-event, repurpose these assets into engaging social media posts, blog articles, or videos. This not only reinforces your event participation but highlights key learnings and connections.

6. Networking Opportunities: QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

Engage in one-on-one conversations with industry leaders. Discuss how your social media strategies align with their business goals. Diversify your interactions and avoid tunnel vision on a single individual. Use your expertise to offer valuable suggestions and solutions.


After the event, capitalize on the momentum. Connect with those you’ve met on social media platforms. Send personalized follow-up messages referring to your conversations. Share relevant content that aligns with their interests, fostering the growth of these newly established relationships.


Based on the insights and connections gained from the event, create content that addresses the challenges and trends discussed. This not only demonstrates your expertise but positions you as a thought leader in your field.

9. Measure Results: QUANTIFY YOUR IMPACT

Utilize analytics to track the engagement and reach of your event-related social media posts. Measure any increase in followers, interactions, or website traffic attributed to your event participation. This data provides valuable insights into the impact of your efforts.

10. Long-Term Relationship Building: NURTURE CONNECTIONS

The relationships forged at the event should not be fleeting. Continue nurturing them through ongoing social media engagement. Share their content, comment on their posts, and stay updated on their business activities. Consistent interaction solidifies these connections into long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.

Matching online and offline strategies is an effort that demands personalization, careful documentation, and methodical adherence. 

In the dynamic realm of B2B business growth, integrating social media marketing with industry events can propel your company to new heights.
