Thanks for sharing, I am guessing one has to have really good social skills in order to spread the word out?
good idea and opportunity
that job already exists; club promoters....
Theres a ton of easy money offline
Brilliant post, have bookmarked for future reference when I might be in a position to do something like this! Do elaborate on the brand you partnered with... what niche were they if you don't mind saying and how did they know how much of their product you were selling? Were they paying you straight up for sponsorship or were you making an affiliate cut, or both?
Yes, you can make some good cash with a party biz.
We used to hire small clubs but even better was hiring River Boats on the Thames.
Used to be easy to promote and some good returns could be had.
Haven't done it in years. might be worth having a look at the local competition.
Thanks for the reminder.
Social skills are always beneficial. Use your friends, colleagues and other people you know as multipliers and word will spread rapidly.
Now put that useful post in every BHW Thread to push your post count... as there is already an existing job for every method and money making strategy here!
Fantastic story, great recap of your experience.
Any tips on how to get bouncers and guys on the inside of these parties to get onboard as affils?
Awesome thread man, I am starting my first venture right now, Or actually 4 days ago, and updating the thread to show my progress!
i don't get how this has to do with SEO? i understand its offline marketing but still, what does this have to do within the context of promoting clubs?
Think about it, U use SEO to obtain customers for your client via search engines, page optimization etc
In this business, U use social media, social interactions to obtain a customer base for yourself of which you use to benefit both you and your clients.
Good method if you have some nice upfront cash and are ready to take risks. Chances are nobody will come to your party no matter how hard you try since your parties will mostly be settled between monday and thursday (those days the clubs usually do not open). Besides this, if you fuck it up at first chance, most likely the club owner will be screwed and wouldn't want you to come back. But this is just theory. Give it a try yourself.
I agree with IMpossible, Don't be afraid to lose money in this business because it can be a huge payoff or a loss on investment. There are plenty of variables such as other events going on and of course the weather depending on where u live.
The method that Cyril gives is a much safer alternative to just throwing a party and hoping people show up. The method is leveraging college students that seem to be popular into selling the tickets to the event 6 weeks prior to the event. As long as the theme is good and you make sure that your team is working, you will have a successful event. Weekly events are a LOT more risky, U should be able to get a good thursday night special event as long as there are no better events going on, the weather is fair, and u build enough hype to the event.
Didn't even think about the weather or "competitor-events" that pop up at the same time of your event.
Starting in college is always a good approach. Learn the ropes while you do not have a lot of (financial) obligations.
You need have certain talents to do this.. Not everyone can
Planning to put this plan into action. Thanks for the guidance!
