How to promote a show
Promotion is King to having a great mentalism show.
Everything you can do to get more people through the door is good for both you and the mentalist.
Spread the word where ever possible.
Get your publicity material up in highly visible locations
Get advertisements in local what?s on listings
Consider leaflets in prominent positions or delivered door to door. A good source for cheap printing (even FREE!) also useful for making your own tickets is www.vistaprint.co.uk .
Use social media like Facebook to spread the word and most importantly ask everyone to share your post, so the message spreads. (tag me into your posts and I will share it on my timeline too)
Websites ? put the event on your website or if you don?t have one, get one!
Adverts in local shops, like newsagents, are usually very cheap and get lots of local passing trade.
Newspapers ? most have a what?s on section and are reasonable to take paid adverts in, but plan ahead.
Build a list -Put out your own sign-in sheet at your shows and events to get people?s email addresses. A good email list is a very important thing in show marketing. Build yours any way you can. But don?t send more than a couple messages a month. A very useful program to help you with this is the free version of Mailchimp available at www.mailchimp.com
If this is a fundraising event for a charity or organisation, Gather a committee, or have the entire membership sell tickets to their friends, family, co-workers, neighbours etc. This way there will be little or no advertising costs!
Use your current show to market your next show ? plan in advance and if you have people in who are having fun, tell them about what is coming up soon, give them leaflets, even try and sell tickets there and then whilst they are in the right mood.
