How to Add your Event to Facebook

We all know Facebook is one of the top social media tools right now, and it’s one of the best ways to market something, especially events. In this blog I’m going to go over the few steps it takes to add your WhenNow event to Facebook and have it link to your event page to purchase tickets.

1. Make sure you have a “Page” created on Facebook

If you’re an organization of any kind you should have a page created on Facebook. Having a page gives you the ability to post updates about your organization and is a requirement to linking your WhenNow event URL to a Facebook event. If you don’t already have a page created for your organization or business, you can visit the link here to learn how to do so.

2. Create your Event on Facebook

Head to the Events page on Facebook, once on that page you’ll want to click Create Event and choose Public or Private.

3. Add info from your WhenNow event to your Facebook event

You’ll copy over all of your information over from your previously created WhenNow event. Date, time, image, title, everything. The most important addition however is copying your Event URL into the Tickets section.
