If you use Showpass to add tickets to your Facebook event it will be a ‘Official Event’ and get preference in the Facebook algorithm for better visibility to a larger audience.
Once your Facebook event is live, make sure to take advantage of the free exposure and RVSPs when you invite friends to your event. You can send up to 500 direct invites. You can even invite groups of users that have attended previous events.
Facebook's strategy is to keep users on their platform as much as possible. So, if you run Facebook ads directly to your Facebook Event page you can save on your cost-per-click.
You can add other Facebook pages like DJs, artists, and performers, to co-host your event. Then your Facebook event will reach all their fans in the city of your event.
After you make your event on Showpass it only takes a couple clicks to build your Facebook Event because Showpass will push details from your existing description and photos.
Did you make your Facebook event before your Showpass event? No problem, you can also add ticketing to pre-existing Facebook Events.
