The internet is an absolutely invaluable platform for promotion and there are many ways to make use of it. Even if you can’t afford print adverts or you don’t get time to contact lots of journalists, you can reach many potential audience members via the Internet. You can set up your own webpage for your event, or you can make use of the platforms that already exist to let people know what’s happening.
Create a Facebook page/group/event
If you set up a page for your event, you can invite all of your friends to share it, ‘like’ it and attend it, and you can email the link to journalists if you don’t have time to put together a full press release.

Why not use hashtags on your main Instagram posts to reach new audiences?
