Whether you’re new to town or have lived in one spot your whole life, meeting new people can be a challenge. For those who already have a set group of friends, going out without them can be intimidating, even if you’re dying to meet someone who doesn’t already know everything about you.
If you’re new to town, well, you may not know where to even start. For one, you have no idea where the good spots are, and two, you have no one to head out and explore with. But, that may just be a good thing.
The new world of influencer marketing has many business owners stumped. Even well-thought-out and interesting campaigns partnered with major, high-profile influencers can flop, leaving an entire marketing team scratching their heads wondering where they went wrong. Due to Instagram’s ever-changing algorithm, influencers with more than 30k followers have a lower engagement rate than that of who we now call “micro influencers.”
It’s seven o’clock. On the dot. No drop tops are in sight anywhere on your street, but your group chat is blowing up. You’ve all had a long week and just want to go blow off steam – aka sip on a delicious cocktail (or three) and maybe even feel the heat and dance with somebody.
“Don’t judge me!”
It’s a common phrase we hear (and, admittedly, say) all too often. By showing favor to something deemed unfavorable or doing something we feel merits a little ribbing by friends, we’re concerned that our peers will “judge” us. It can be argued that this anxiety is rarely as heightened than when we consider attending a social event– gasp— alone!
More goes into throwing a successful event than the average attendee could ever imagine (unless, of course, they also have been tasked with throwing an event in the past). What they see is the finished result, and the hours and hours of energy and work that go into it are typically nowhere on their radar as they munch on hors d’oeuvres and sip champagne. After all, your attendees are there to enjoy the event– not to worry about the details.
