Spread the word about an event: This flyer gets around

Online invitations are a great way to spread the word about a party you’re planning. There is a cavalcade of online invitation services that do a great job of that, but what happens when your event is bigger than the average birthday party and you want as many people to come as possible?

If you’re having a public event such as a charity picnic or a bake sale, you’re not just in the business of inviting – you’re in the business of promoting! And if you’re promoting, you need a flyer.

In Elizabethan times, a sheath of parchment tacked to the largest tree in town would have done the job. But nowadays, it’s all about the web – with its easily spreadable pages through social media and its analytical tracking. The problem is that most of us don’t know how to code or design our own web pages or have the budget to hire a nerd.

Luckily, there’s a new site called Smore. In mere minutes you can create a custom digital flyer for your event and include all the promotional material necessary to make it really stand out.

Smore is currently running in private beta which means you’ll need an invitation to “get in” for the time-being. But don’t worry! Digitwirl is hooking you up! Just mention Digitwirl when you request an invitation and you’ll cut right to the front of the line. Once you’re ‘in,’ you won’t believe how easy it is to make a flyer.

Whether you’re spreading the word about a book club event, a small business, a networking event or a bake sale fundraiser for your local theatre, Smore is a great way to create a compelling online flyer, share it through social media and email, and track how many people it’s reaching. Creating a flyer is fun, fast and looks so professional everyone will think you have a design nerd on staff.

Can you see yourself using this website? For business, personal, school events?

Spread the word!
