Promoting your event effectively can drive up your attendance -- and draw attention to the world-changing power of great ideas.
Covered in this section
In this section, you'll find guidelines and best practices for promoting your event. The extent to which you promote is up to you, but we recommend you start with social media services such as Facebook and Twitter. Organizers of larger events might consider building a standalone website or offering a free webcast.
- Your event profile on TED.com
- Using social media
- Creating a website
- Talking to the press / issuing a press release
- Offering a webcast
Example: TEDx teaser videos
This playlist contains a sampling of teaser videos made by TEDx organizers for their events. Watch them all -- perhaps one of them will inspire the great concept you'll use to promote yours. (Use the video player's left and right arrow buttons to navigate.)
* If you create a promotional video for your event, only use your TEDx event's logo (never the TED logo or the generic TEDx logo) and include the tagline "x = independently organized event".
