    Clearly outline the details and benefits of attending the eLearning event. You should also include a call to action and brief guest speaker bios.
  • Give it a catchy title
    The title must pull readers in and make them want to learn more about your eLearning event. Follow this with a brief explanation of eLearning event highlights, such as the discussion topics.

3. Can I Include Links?

You can incorporate links in your eLearning event, provided that they have suitable extensions. This includes jpeg, png, gif, tiff, bmp, pdf, doc*,xl*, ps, rtf, ppt, mpeg, mp3, and mov formats. However, use them in moderation and avoid HTML tags, tables, line breaks, and other special formatting characters. Ideally, the eLearning event announcement should have a maximum of 2 links in the body of the content.

4. When Should I Start Promoting My eLearning Event?

The answer to this frequently asked question depends on the nature of your eLearning event. If you're hosting an eLearning event at a physical location, you need to give your guests plenty of notice. For example, start marketing your eLearning event at least two or three months before. This is because they need to make travel arrangements and adjust their schedule accordingly. If your eLearning event is online, such as a webinar, you may want to post a few weeks prior. Another consideration is RSVP deadlines. You must give your attendees fair warning before the cutoff date.

In some cases, you may need to obtain written authorization for quotes and cite statistical data.
