The final part of the Workshop explored ways to use images, Instagram polls and reels to promote your events.

A good tip if you are creating an event on Instagram, you can use Instagram polls in stories to promote the event during and before the event.

Twitter polls are a great way to get an idea of the type of content your library or followers are interested in. Adding a tailored hashtag to your poll will get engagement in your social media pages and events.
