Looking to host a virtual event that will impress and wow your audience? If you’re not sure where to start, the following tips and tricks are the perfect place to begin brainstorming. Let’s get started!
Host your virtual event on your website, with a twist
Adding a RumbleTalk chat alongside your virtual event not only helps with engagement. It also increases interactions between presenters, attendees, and speakers while encouraging live discussion on both topics. It adds another layer of dimension to the overall experience.
Imagine your attendees expecting the same old online event, and be surprised with a lot of gimmicks along the way.
If you’re looking to run an event online, there are plenty of game-centric options to boost engagement and sales. For example, create a flash or word puzzle as part of the event. This game allows your audience to connect with other users. Also, you can use this game to give them a chance to unlock prizes or coupons they can use to purchase from your website.
Another example would be hosting a trivia event with questions about your brand. For each question answered correctly, one person who answers gets a point for their team—and then some bonus prize at the end. Furthermore, this also helps incentivize participation throughout your event.
One of our favorite methods for creating excitement for an online event is to set up a speed networking experience. This gets users to interact with one another, which builds a strong sense of community.
Creating multiple chat rooms for online networking events allows you to keep different sets of people separate. For example, hosting a professional event, like a speed networking session or online dating.
Likewise, a business conference might benefit from separate rooms. How? They can use the private rooms for online meetings, consultations, or brainstorming. In addition to that, they can also use the video and audio calls for free.

Health and Wellbeing Activities
Online health and wellbeing activities are a great place to start if you’re looking for an engaging afternoon with a group of people. Host a slew of valuable activities such as learning about nutrition, weight training, active lifestyle, healthy meal plans, and more. There is no shortage of online health and well-being community activities. It is much more enjoyable when you share it with like-minded people.
Some of these community groups are also focused on helping others. They do this by donating proceeds made from selling certain products back to charitable causes. They can also monetize the activity through pay per admission.

Influencers are becoming an essential part of any marketing strategy. Even if you’re just getting started, it’s never too early to start building relationships with key influencers in your niche.
Offer them a seat at your upcoming online event and they’ll be sure to spread the word—and likely share some insights as well. You can also ask them to be one of your speakers. Moreover, you can easily host a moderated Q&A session where your speakers can interact with your audience.
Surprise your virtual event attendees with delivered giveaways
Handing out branded giveaways to conference attendees, customers, or clients helps build a positive association with your brand. Surprise people with a gift they weren’t expecting. For example, something fun like a stress ball, stickers, a fun pen, even candy. Or why not something from your product line?
People may not remember what you say during an online chat but they’ll definitely remember how you made them feel. If your budget approves, go ahead and take that extra mile!
