Are you taking part in Museums at Night with an evening event on 27, 28 or 29 October?
Have you registered your Museums at Night event yet? The final deadline is 5pm this Friday, 7 October to be included in our last PR blitz. Here’s a step by step guide explaining how to register your listing.
Once your event is registered in our database, you’re warmly invited to take advantage of a free 15 minute event marketing surgery phonecall. This opportunity is open to all Museums at Night participating organisations.
What does an event marketing surgery consist of?
We’ll have a chat about how your event listing appears on the Museums at Night site and your own site, making sure the copywriting and promotional images are as helpful as they can be; we look at whether the ticket booking process can be streamlined; what you’re doing in terms of press releases and media outreach; how your social media is going, and whether there’s anything else we can do to raise awareness of the event with your target audience.
Book your surgery as soon as possible!
If you’re interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or simply give me a ring on my direct line, 01273 523982. I understand working on an extremely limited budget, and I’m here to support you and suggest new ideas you may not have considered. So if you’re concerned about your ticket sales, don’t delay – call me today!
