a2z’s ChirpE mobile app solution comes with a built-in messaging feature which enables event managers to broadcast important messages to attendees in real-time. Unlike tweets, ChirpE buzz does not have an inherent character limit. And since you control the number of buzz messages that are posted for your event, your message does not get lost in a crowd of messages as it can on Twitter. The ChirpE Premium package has a number of additional buzz features, such as the ability to send notifications to native iOS app users and generate a RSS feed for all your buzz, but even with the basic package, users can make the most of the buzz feature. Here are three tips to get you started.
1. Promote your sponsors
Posting buzz to promote sponsors and featured exhibitors is a great way to give them exposure with a targeted audience.
Example: PACK EXPO 2012
2. Broadcast changes
At times, even the best laid plans go awry, and you have to update attendees on a changed schedule or cancelled session. Buzz is handy for notifications of this type.
Example: MGMA 2012
3. Share important information
Attendees often struggle to find housing or travel info while on the go. Buzz is an excellent means of sharing key info and links of this type with registered attendees.
Example: SVC Techcon 2012
