How Advertising on the Back of Music Festival Tickets Can Benefit Your Business

MUSIC-FESTIVAL

Music festivals have become much more than cultural events where attendees share common interests and identities, they have become increasingly popular among many companies’ key marketing demographic of young adults. By advertising on the back of tickets for festivals like Coachella, sponsors can easily gain exposure to a million or more target clients at one event. With the cost of advertising on festival tickets averaging just pennies per ticket, the small investment in marketing is well worth it, especially considering that many concert-goers keep tickets stubs as sentimental keepsakes long after the event.

Even if your business isn’t large enough to sponsor tickets at a super event like Coachella, you can apply this idea to a smaller business as well. At EventD8, we offer blank, bulk music festival tickets that can be personalized with your unique message. With rates as low as $.05 per ticket, the cost to local businesses such a restaurants and stores bear very little cost in exchange for reaching hundreds or thousands of potential customers, especially when working in conjunction with us to personalize the tickets. Utilizing the back of the music festival ticket is one of the easiest ways to promote your business and to a great way to get your brand directly into the hands of your target market. Our tickets are 2″ x 5.5” and the otherwise unused space on the back of the tickets can serve as a mini-billboard for your business.

With summer approaching, tourism will soon be in full swing and your town’s calendar is sure to be brimming with music festivals. Start planning your ticket marketing campaign now, we can help you find the venue or target market you want to reach and reap the rewards!

7 Ways to Fundraise for Your Summer Camp Program + Advertising Tips

Summer-Camp
If you are an organization that offers summer camp programs for children, now is the optimal time to start thinking of advertising and fundraising options. The kiddos will be out of school for summer break in a few short weeks – which means parents are already making their list of summer camp options. It doesn’t matter what type of summer camp program your organization offers, the goal is always the same, to give children a fun place to enjoy the summer while being supervised, giving parents the peace of mind they need to go to work. The second part of that goal of course, is to bring money in for your organization. April is the perfect time to start looking at your fundraising and advertising options, this way you can ensure that you have enough children attending your program to keep it in business for the upcoming summers. Read on for my 7 favorite ways to fund-raise and advertise for your summer camp program and get started today.

#1: Bookmark Bonanza

It doesn’t matter what kind of summer camp program you have – if it is fun and people know about it, you will get children enrolled. I recommend ordering personalized bookmarks with the activities that your summer camp has to offer, along with your organization’s contact information. You can give these bookmarks to all of the local schools and children’s libraries in your area – it’s a great way to get your program in front of parents and children alike.

#2: Magnetic Personality

Much like bookmarks, personalized magnets are always a great form of advertising and fundraising. Almost everyone will put a good looking magnet on their refrigerator – and when yours has information about your popular summer camp program, parents will hold on to it, knowing they are going to need a summer camp come June. You can give these magnets to schools, day care centers and local children’s gyms and music classes to stick to the entryway of their office or any other magnetic surface. Parents can pick one up as they drop their child off to class, taking it home to stick it on their refrigerator.

#3: A Year’s Worth of Memories

Once you have children enrolled in your program, a great way to raise funds for your organization is by selling goodies that the parents can’t turn down. I love the idea of having someone snap photos of the children having an amazing time at your summer camp, then using those photos to create personalized calendars that can be sold to the parents at the end of the summer. Not only is it a great way to raise funds for your organization – it’s a fun way for the children to have a memento of their summer camp experience. Parents can hang the calendar in their home and hopefully it will remind them all year long to sign up for your summer camp again next year!

#4: Loud and Clear

If your organization hosts a sports themed summer camp, a great way to fund-raise is by hosting a big game at the end of the summer. For example, if your organization hosts a soccer camp, bring all of the children back for a big tournament at the end of the summer. Invite your students’ friends and family members to attend the game and offer personalized megaphones to cheer on their favorite players. You can of course also include raffles and sell food and drink to further your fundraising efforts.

#5: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

If there is one thing that every parent loves – it’s a great photo of their child. During your summer camp have someone snap a few pictures of each child having a wonderful time. Then, at the end of the camp, ask the children to put together a personalized photo frame to give to their parents. You can add your organizations name and contact information to the photo frame and as it is displayed in their child’s bedroom all year, your organization will stay fresh in the minds’ of the parents all year long.

#6: Roll with It

To get the word about your summer camp out to even more people, consider wrapping your car with a giant vinyl sticker. The sticker of course will provide all of the information about your summer camp, including activities and contact information. Depending on how much driving you do each day, you can get your organization in front of thousands of people. You could even hire individuals to place a giant sticker on their car, furthering your efforts.

#7: Memory Lane

One of my favorite ways for children to remember all of the fun they had all summer is through journaling. Your organization could order personalized notepads to be given to each child at the beginning of summer camp. Then, give the children a few minutes at the end of camp each day to write about all of the fun that they had. Parents will always keep a journal that their child wrote in, it is a personal keepsake that will be cherished forever – and lucky for you, this one will be branded with your organizations information.

Powerful Posters

“I could create my poster on the fly and actually see it being designed as I made different choices.”

I was asked by my church to organize a fundraising event for victims of the storm that ravaged our community. Many different ideas crossed my mind, such as a walkathon, community dance, golf tournament but what I wanted more than anything was to help the people of this small town. I knew I could send emails, list the event on Facebook and tweet about the event, but what I was looking for was a visual advertisement of the event. That’s when I found EventD8.com, an online company that specializes in everything you need for an event.

After settling on a golf tournament, I found a golf themed design, perfect for advertising the fundraiser. What made it even better was the fact that I could create my own design, by uploading my own image, select a background theme from their library, and type in whatever text I needed. Further, I could create my poster on the fly and actually see it being designed as I made different choices. I could try different text, adjust the font type, size and color, all before agreeing to the proof and placing my order.

While in their website I saw a fundraising thermometer, perfect for showing everybody the goal we had set and the progress we were making to help. It was a great way to show community support.

Creating event products online was easy and helped my efforts in making this fundraiser seamless and successful.
