Hyping any promotion, from a band’s gig to a themed party, is essential to the success of any nightlife venue. If you can’t create a sense of excitement or buzz, your promotion is as good as dead. With the right strategy and following top promoters can take an ordinary nightclub promotion and make it an experience customers will remember.
Here are some steps promoters can take to create a legitimate following and successful business:
1. Register the business. If you take the business seriously, you should be putting your money in the bank, writing checks and writing off your expenses.
2. Stand by what you say. Your word in nightlife is everything. Your reputation will spread like wildfire, so make sure to be honest and do what you say you're going to do.
3. Have every partnership agreement on paper with terms and conditions. Make sure everyone signs off on it.
4. Don't take shortcuts. Make sure that quality is held high. Put time and effort into everything you do, from business cards to websites; the first impression is a lasting one.
5. Business development is key. You have to be able to see opportunities when they present themselves. Always see the bigger picture.
