Interacting with a remote audience becomes much easier if you use a live social media feed as part of your virtual conference setup. Take audience questions using hashtags which will then show up on the wall for everyone to see and create a dialogue between presenters and viewers.

Here’s a quick guide to setting up your next virtual conference, including a live social media feed, using Slayte & Walls.io

Why add a live social media feed to your virtual conference?

A live social media feed will open up a whole new world of interaction and help you reach a new level of engagement at your virtual event. Most importantly, it will help you raise awareness and interaction before, during and after the event by spreading the word on various social media channels.

Using a social wall for your virtual event will:

  • Enhance your promotional reach
  • Create a sense of community
  • Engage your audience
  • Boost revenue with sponsored posts
  • Enhance your virtual conference setup
  • Increase ticket sales for the next event
