What else does your organization have to offer? Think about collecting donations & putting together a basket—everyone that attends your event gets entered to win your grand prize basket for supporting your cause. For example, perhaps you are a dance team, maybe everyone that joins get a discounted ticket to your next dance event!
These events may seem like they require minimum to no-work but that just isn’t the case. Without your organization working together as a team, your event won’t be quite as successful as you’d planned. Designate volunteers to pass out flyers, share information on social media & contact your supporters—handing out vouchers & explaining the event…
Don’t leave all your promoting to the very beginning, weeks before your event, and not reach-out to remind your supporters! You can collect your family, friends & fellow supporters email addresses when you originally start to promote your event and send them a reminder email the day before!
One week is not an adequate amount of time to prepare for these events. Plan to book your event AT LEAST 3 WEEKS out and start your planning & promoting from the start!
