06 Apr How to Write an Event Blog Post That Doesn’t Make Readers Feel Like They Missed Out

One of the newest ways brands are choosing to stand out is by hosting exclusive events for influencers, as well as including influencers on media lists. When a new ride opens at an amusement park or a festival comes into town, bloggers are often invited to preview it. The goal is to reach audiences who read blogs looking for insight and exciting events. Our community members have covered the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans and the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival in Atlanta. As an influencer it’s important not to get caught up in the exclusivity of what you’re experiencing. Instead add value to your readers when you write an event post. Here’s some insight to help the next time you’re covering an event.

How to Write a Winning Event Blog Post

Make it personal

Does the event you’re covering bring back memories of your childhood? How does this experience enhance your life? Did you bring a guest along who’s getting to experience this with you? Add personal details to your event post on how this experience is affecting your life.

Be timely & relevant

Pay attention to the news headlines. How does this event relate to what’s in the news? Does this experience include something trendy like virtual reality? Is there an expert on site who can provide context on how visiting this venue or event will help your readers’  lives?
