Adding People to Your Event

You need to send them your instagram username, once they request to follow you, you will need to accept their follow request.

Please reach out to people individually. You do not want to post the event username on your story for everyone to see. This isn't just a page to follow, this is an event! (The ask to invite people to your event is listed on the posts document)

When you're telling them what Instagram username to follow for your event, tell them to turn on their "Post Notifications", that way they will get a notification, which will pop up on their screen every time you post.

Once everyone is accepted and is following your account, it is time to make your first post!

What to do after your event is done

1. Once your event is done, click on "followers" and remove all of them!

2. Archive all of your posts

Click on your post, click the three dots located at the top right of the screen. Click "Archive"

Now all of your posts will be archived, but please remember when unarchiving something it will not give your followers a notification. For your next event, just copy and save your photos and then re-upload them. Keeping them archived is just a good way to remind yourself of what content to use and what worked for future events.

3. For your next event, remember you can keep the same username, or you can change it up depending on what your virtual event will be.

Now That Your Event Is Closed You Are Ready To Host Your Next One!
