#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – driving online engagement from offline activity

September 15th, 2011Posted by in Events, Top tips for journalists

This post on the 10,000 Words blog acts as a useful reminder about the importance of offline meetings and events to connect those who have previously only met online before, and help drive future engagement on the internet.

… instead of reflexively throwing together an “awareness campaign” via Facebook Ads, consider how an off-line event such as a meeting or organized outing to a relevant event might impact the page.

When people who have interacted online, are suddenly brought together in an offline environment, often there is a stronger bond that is created. People feel more connected to the cause or the topic that is bringing them together, because they’re being connected with other like-minded people.
