Social media is almost an essential component of any event, large or small. But for an event the size of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™, it is critical.

How can such a huge event with so many moving parts successfully build a strong online community that interacts year-round? Betsy Ellison has helped do that and more with the various social media channels for this huge traditional Houston event, with over half a million collective followers.

She will share with us how she does it as the sole social media manager, and how the Rodeo is leveraging other resources to create content and connection with its huge fan base with such programs as #RODEOHOUSTON Unplugged.

You will hear about:

-How to use hashtags to build a unified online community

-Tips on keeping social channels alive year round for a once-a-year event
-Using contests to maintain engagement and participation, what works and what doesn’t
-Setting up a strong editorial calendar
-Growing the resources to develop content
