Hi Tiffany,

We currently use Event Brite to Promote, Manage and Host our Events. Its a nice and easy tool to setup and communicate with your intended attendees. You can then share your Event on Facebook, Linkedin and Google.

We have found it to be a nice and easy platform to use for Events.

If you have a client database a email out is essential and also some actual phone calls to generate attendance is vital.

All the best.

You may also want to checkout Nvite, https://nvite.com/features , it has pretty good pricing as well.

However for actually spreading the word, it may depend on your audience. If it is professionals LinkedIn would be good. If it is consumers LinkedIn is probably not ideal.

If you are trying to up the anticipation you could try live streaming in the lead up to the event with, Periscope, Meerkat, Youtube Live (I think Facebook even offers something now).
