Ep 56 The social media opportunity that most hospitality and events businesses are ignoring with Sabrina Meyers
Show Notes

You'd think that event profs and hospitality services aimed at business events would be lighting up their social media with their offerings and experiences. But while many have social media accounts, most of the feeds offer irregular and lacklustre content. Sabrina Meyers' mission is to inspire confidence in the industry with strategies to optimise their social platforms and win more clients.
 
Sabrina Meyers is a visibility coach and strategist to the Event Industry on all things social media. She is the Founder of Hot Hospitality Exchange and The Get Visible Collective, an online community for event and hospitality professionals learning how to level up their social media to maximise online engagement, reach and growth. Sabrina is also an experienced speaker and event moderator for in-person, hybrid and virtual events.


Quotes from Episode:

"Do not post and ghost. You need to start engaging with people. You need to start going to other people within your space, within your industry, and say hi... It's still the same rules. If you're not going to engage with other people, they're not going to follow you."

"(When it comes to social media with our industry), I want to say we're at fetal stage. That's bad. And I'm honest about it because I've been banging on about this for years. I don't think we  come anywhere near comparable to business travel or leisure travel."

"It doesn't take that much to be visible, considering where our industry is at, in terms of adoption to social media. It's very low hanging fruit."
