What are the best ways to promote. Below are what we are doing now. We are the only people in town that use flyers for events. It worked well in the summer but now i feel like people are taking it as spam. I tend to come back to the same spots the next night to find flyers layin around in the parkinglot at certain places. We are promoting tues nights, and 2 diff venues for thurs nights which are the hardest night in town due to a bar that has held it for a while. The tues night venue has a bad rep but in the summer while running a beer pong tourney/bikini contest weekly party did very well. Once summer was through it got old. Then thurs night we do another Ladies Night at a well known venue but not known as a dancing venue. We are on week 3 this week with last week having double the people from the first week which got no promotion. The owner says sales were up 20% from first week which i feel with double the people isnt good. I also Dj this night im finding it hard to get people dancing. It is a venue with a jukebox that normally plays rock and country. I start out with rock/country then go into pop/top40. I mange to get a few people dancing but not alot. Im really trying to figure out new ways to promote that will draw a crowd. We put out around 1200 flyers a week of all the nights. Is putting 2 dif flyers on a car car good or bad? Goto my myspace page to see the flyers.
