During my first few days of working at Jennifer Baker Consulting Ltd., I learned a new trick which is great for Facebook business pages.
You may have noticed that a number of Facebook pages you follow contain a list of events hosted by other organizations. Or you may have seen updates on your Newsfeed of pages adding events. Here’s one example.
Both of these events listed here are offered by two different organizations. Having these events available on your page is great for two reasons: it gives your followers the chance to scroll through all the events that are relevant to an organization and it allows community partners to have their events added to your page. Basically, your followers and community partners are happy.
How to Add these Events
Now that you know the importance of this practice, I’ll show you how you can do the same for your page. The first thing you want to do is click on “Events” under the “Explore” tab on Facebook’s home page.
Next, click on the event that you want to add.
You will then have the option to choose which page you would like to add.
Once you’ve selected the page you wish to add, click “Add Event.” The event will be populated into the Events section of your page.
There you have it. This handy trick is a fantastic way to showcase the various partnerships you’ve established throughout the community and it gives your followers options to choose from. Most of all, it’s another way to show your organization’s values and areas of focus.
