Have an event coming up but need new ways to market it? Take advantage of the Chamber’s weekly Events at a Glance email blast.
Every Thursday at 10 am, the Alexandria Chamber sends the Events at a Glance email blast that consists of 10 days of upcoming Chamber and Chamber member events. There are several ways to ensure your event gets listed in the weekly Events at a Glance email blast.
The first and most popular way is through the Douglas County Community Calendar. All Chamber member events are automatically pulled from this calendar to be added to the Events at a Glance. This calendar is not only an easy way to ensure your event is added to the Events at a Glance but is also a great tool to reach an even larger audience. All events that are pulled from the Douglas County Community Calendar to be added to the Events at a Glance will link back to the calendar listing for more information. Visit www.alexmncalendar.com to submit your event to the Douglas County Community Calendar.
If you’re a Chamber Member hosting an event outside of the Douglas County limits, reach out to us at the Chamber with your event information and we will be happy to include it in our Events at a Glance. Be sure to include somewhere we can link it to such as a Facebook event page or a website where they can find more information. Or if you prefer, we can link it to an email address or even a PDF flyer.
A couple other ways to get your information added to the Events at a Glance includes, sending a Chamber member email blast – we will add any qualifying events from previous chamber member email blasts. You can also drop off a flyer for our bulletin board located at our Chamber office and we will be sure to include that information as well.
All submissions for the Events at a Glance email blast must be received by 3 pm on the Tuesday prior to that Thursday’s email blast.
The Events at a Glance is a quick and easy way to market your event without spending a dime! For more information on how to submit your event for the weekly Events at a Glance email blast, reach out to Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 320-763-3161.
