Shoestring Marketing and Publicity Workshops

Thursdays, January 25 – February 15 7-9 pm

They’re Back!!... And registration is limited!

Whether you want to promote your burgeoning non-profit, sell more of your art or take your rock band to the top, the key to success in any small enterprise is shrewd Marketing and Publicity!

If you ever wanted to put on a show, but didn’t have the faintest idea how, or want to raise your profile in the public eye, here’s your chance to learn how to creatively stretch your meager advertising budget and hit your target audience all at the same time!

We’ll look at all aspects of promotion including:

  • Name and logo branding
  • Press releases
  • Poster and handbill design,
  • Internet tools and resources
  • Guerilla Marketing
  • Niche marketing

We'll also cover event planning, looking at real life events from the point of view of both consumer and promoter. Then we'll brainstorm as a group to build our own arsenal of advertising secret weapons.

Classes include course-specific material and are backed by my renowned reputation for friendly customer satisfaction long after the class is over!

Steve, I'd like to add one area of marketing that is critical to creating your image: Quality Control. Most artists are not marketers...by nature. If you can't control the quality of your books and cd's, have someone else do that job. Get a proof reader. Test whether or not there actually is sound on the cd's you sell for $20 a pop. From a consumer viewpoint, there's nothing more frustrating than buying a cd of one of your favourite artists only to get an empty plastic disc. And, poets, if someone writes to you or calls you and says they got a defective cd or book, fer chrissake, give them one that doesn't prove your words are hollow. Unless, of course, you just need their 20 bucks and don't care what kind of press you get on your integrity.
