SOCIAL MEDIA FOR SOCIAL EVENTS
Facebook is a great way to both promote an event and share with friends after an event is over. By choosing to use a photo booth at a school prom, students can help collect memories for a lifetime and then upload pictures, and video clips (from video capable booths like ours) to Facebook to share with their friends and family.
This makes the event more interesting and tons of fun. Everyone attending the prom will have an opportunity to sit in the photo booth and get their photos for free. This is especially good at proms where students are often strapped for cash.
Even better for the students, they can capture serious moments with thier best friends or act silly and pose in groups. Masquerade props would be a great idea to use in a prom setting.
Imagine all the fun and excitement you could generate by having a time capsule at the prom. By having a photo booth at the prom you’re getting precious memories on a film strip. If students run through the booth twice they can keep their favorite strip to take home and place one in a time capsule!
You can also use all the pictures from the night to help fill the class yearbooks with interesting and entertaining pictures. Just imagine all the endless possibilities these strips would make in a yearbook “remember when?”
CONNECTING WITH DECISION MAKERS
Just like any form of government the student council and class president will make all the important decisions (with the schools approval). The first thing students need to do is run the idea by the student council and explain the facts. Help the parents understand the process and create instructional literature they can give to students to help get you hired for their prom. If you help them understand the benefit of having a booth and how to go about getting it approved, why would they not hire you?
The reason to go for prom instead of a school dance is that they normally have a larger budget and more importance is spent on entertainment. A prom will be much more likely to have the budget to afford a photo booth rental than a school dance.
USE FACEBOOK TO SPREAD THE WORD
So how do you use a Facebook ad to promote this idea? Consider placing a regional ad in Facebook that targets female, teens 16 – 18 for your given area. It’s easy to see how many audience members your ad will reach and from there you can determine if it is worth it for you to run the ad.
Next, hire a graphic designer to make a cute ad (spend no more than $50 on this) and give your ad a test run!
TALK TO YOUR PEERS
You can also mention your idea for props or get ideas from other students. Props could be made in art class for the event to make it even more special.
Just imagine how cool it would be to have something so fun and exciting at the prom! All the ridiculous moments caught on film strips to cherish forever.
There will be a line of people waiting for their turn and quite possibly the highlight of the evening. Facebook will help spread the word about the photo booth being at the prom.
