Promoting Local Events

Any ideas how to use the web effectively to publicise local events?

Weve done all the social networks, local tv, radio & magazine websites, local google groups and email sigs to all our networks.

Any other creative/guerrilla tactics for low cost/high impact marketing on the web? This is something that happens every month and the budget for ads is US$200 per event which is usually spent offline on leaflets etc.

Thanks.

Have you listed the event(s) on the various event calendars on related sites, if there are any for the type event?

$200.00 per event? And most of that spent offline? Doesn't leave you with much, huh?

Its working well on facebook networks at the moment. A little tip someone gave me is to get all your contacts to change the status daily to variations of [name] is looking forward to [event name] as they post updates on all your networks and contacts , a pity you cannot use html in a status

Google Maps is pretty easy to optimise on but it only seems to show up the listings on Google maps...

>Have you listed the event(s) on the various event calendars on related sites,

Im doing this manually, copying and pasting from facebook, its a lot of work each month, a pity they cannot read the facebook events directly but even if you make them public they cannot be crawled.

Yep its a small budget! Its a non-for-profit thing.
