    ill keep this short. got a job as a barback at a new spot opening up in a couple weeks. Being in the IM game and taking ideas from some interesting reads on consulting with local business. I see an opportunity to put into action some of the skills I have learned here at BHW and prove that if you set your mind to a clear defined goal than you can achieve success.

    I want to start from scratch here a journal here on my experiences. looking to promote this establishment inhouse. Depending on where you live, promoters can make a wide variety of pay structures and can be quite lucrative given the right business plan.

    Iam going for the "per head" structure where its a flat fee for every warm body i put in there. In my area $5-$7 is industry standard. Plus we also have bottle service, so a percentage of those sales is also written into the contract.

    This gives you an idea of the potential payout. This is no different than you doing a cpa offer that converts for the advertiser. Just now we see the end result offline.



    Below begins the journey:

    Mission: Establish through any mean necessary a dominate fanpage presence to maximize promotional effort

    what i need:

    -10-20 female facebook acct with pictures for local targeted friend building to suggest to fanpage (any suggetions on images?)
    -consistent yelp reviews and various other local blogs on my business with link backs if applicable to my fanpage
    Script for selecting all friends to suggest to fanpage


    From here i start building out the fanpage to keep its users engaged with a low bounce rate.

    Once an established local fanbase is reached, your promotions and marketing is now only an update away from reaching thousands of targeted consumers.

    right now the "official" fan page has less then 50 likes. Not a bad argument for me to promote for them when my fanpage reaches over 1000 likes.

    Currently I have 0 likes

    1st Goal: reach 1000 likes by the 1st of dec.

    I would like suggestions on quality providers for fb accts and yelp accts or review service.

    If anyone wishes to donate for my cause gratitude is given!

    thats a good idea...we have like 80 hot girls working in this place...put it this way...even the ugly ones are hot. I was thinking about this already put i need to create a following first...otherwise mgmt will feel that their girls made the page not my efforts.

    once i have over 1000 likes i will look to bring in the in house talent and create "company profiles" for each of them to use in friend building

    if you do it right, you can make WAY more than $5 - $7 a person.]

    you should look into getting a huge fanpage ... and a huge contact list (niches help alot)

    like a mature 25+ niche
    or a college 18-21 group ya know ...

    and basically .... talk to club owners to let you use the venue for free (maybe on a thursday when another party isnt happening) and throw your party ...

    if you take that route, you dont get paid per head, but instead you get paid for everyone who pays cover .... aka you take 100% of the door

    but it is impossible to fill a venue alone if you have no experience, so get in contact with popular people and promotional teams and pay them generously to promote your party.

    you can make an absolute KILLING if this is done correctly.

    think about it. lets say you throw a weekly thursday party and you take full door cover ..

    lets say you are able to pull even 200 people every thursday with everyone paying $5

    that is $1000 every thursday
    - DJ expenses
    - promoter expenses...

    which is still a good amount.

    Your party will continuously grow to the point where you may start doing 400 every thursday

    400 x 5 = $2000 every thursday
    - DJ expenses
    - promoter expenses
    - flyer print etc etc


    I am wishing you look in your journey. i am actually in the industry of throwing parties, i am new to the game but i have made a good killing off a couple parties.

    To select all friends to invite to your fanpage, click ''suggest to friends''

    then in your address bar type J and copy and paste this in

    Code:
    avascript:var x=document.getElementsByTagName("input");for(var i=0;i<x.length;i++) {if (x[i].type == 'checkbox') {x[i].click();}}; alert('Done, all your friends have been selected');
    it will select all your friends :)

    wherever you are advertising already and inside the club/bar with promo cards,flyers, posters scan this qr code for VIP specials or text that to get promo/specials on your phone

    we set our clients up with mobile sites, the specials page says text vip to long/shortcode to get vip specials sent direct to the phone

    when they text vip it auto subscribes them - then the owner can send a message to the subscribers whenever they went

    we have been using twilio to do all this for a while now

    recently created some bad ass promo materials getting a good number signed up - owner very pleased

    hey guys. kind of got side tracked on this with another project.

    also got fired as the barback...lol but heres a little update.

    so i went a new direction and found myself a DJ that also happens to work in the kitchen. Last Saturday (st paddys day) we seized the DJ booth and played our set for 3 hours.

    No pay but we are starting to gain momentum. We are in the process of negotiating terms and compensation for resident DJ for Sat nights.

    I expect this to be a better way to gain a following behind the DJ

    cheers
