Power Hour: Event Strategy
Dec. 9, 9AM
$10 per person

Putting on a big event – a concert, a conference, a lecture, live theater – costs a lot of money and a lot of time. Unfortunately, the lesson from the movie “Field of Dreams” – “Build it, and they will come” – doesn’t usually apply. A quality event needs a quality marketing plan behind it, or … bad news, NOBODY WILL COME.

This class covers:
– Schedule: How soon before an event do we need to get started?
– Marketing strategy: How much do we need to be willing to put into advertising our event? What advertising platforms (TV, radio, print, online) are best for my particular event?
– Sponsors: Ideas for how to develop marketing partners to help with the costs of your event
– PR: How to leverage media opportunities (TV and radio interviews, newspaper stories) to increase visibility for your event
– How to use social media: And how much is too much?
– Create a buzz: Get people talking about your event weeks and months in advance
– Online ticket sales: Use that buzz to generate early dollars, with ideas for how to incentivize those early purchasers
– VIP: Ideas for creating multiple ticket levels (VIP experiences, etc.)
