Community Meets for business is not just a slogan. It’s a maxim that can help your enterprise grow!
If you’re a business or organisation looking to build your profile and create a culture that reflects your values, then sharing your events to our What’s on list is a surefire way to reach out and achieve penetration across all levels of the community.
Here we will explore how Community Meets can help you run and promote an attention-grabbing show. It’s quick, simple and, more importantly, effective.
Connecting people. It’s what we do. It’s what you do.
The Human Touch in Business
Businesses come in many forms, but they are all defined by their relationship to their customers. Studies, and common sense, show that clients are more loyal and more likely to stick around when they feel valued as more than a means to turn a profit. Furthermore, companies are increasingly aware that people identify them with lifestyles and concepts, and what better way to forge that than to organise events that reflect your values, for the benefit of your staff, employees or clients.
The cliche is of deals being struck on the golf course, but times have moved on and chin-wagging and hand shaking take place via the Twitter sphere and the meet and greet. It’s time to sell yourself. Community Meets can help.
How It Works
So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of how Community Meets can help.
In a nutshell, we help you connect you with your audience through the magic of activities. Human interaction is a wonderful thing and bringing people together is what we are all about.
At Community Meets you can list events of all shapes and sizes.

Once an organiser or group page is established, you’ll be able to;
- Post one-off and recurring events

Promote, Promote, Promote
Once an event is posted, you’ll find plenty of smart tools to further assist you in spreading the word.
Members can follow you to receive automatic invitations to upcoming events, they can also share event details with their friends and others.
Social media is an important tool when it comes to advertising, ideally you should engage with potential attendees before, during and after the event!
There will always be a lot of last minute details to be tied up before any event.
When things change, you’ll be able to edit the activity form or post updates. Members that are registered their interest on the activity page will be notified, which is a useful detail given how even the best-laid plans often go awry.
In addition to updates, you can message those following you or post comments directly at the Activity pages. Keep the communication flowing to keep members engaged, and when the event kicks-off, it will make it is easier to rub shoulders when everything is up and running.
That’s our brief run-down of how Community Meet can help business. Businesses have lots of opportunities for building stronger connections inside and outside the company.
