I know it may seem like a lifetime away, but in business, next year’s plans should already be well underway. The festival season for 2017 is already in full swing which means it’s time for any of you that missed the boat this year or simply want to attend again next summer to get a head start with the planning process.
These things take time and you will want to have a plan together and be ready to pitch yourself for the line-up of festivals that you want to attend.
Here at VerriBerri, Essex marketing and PR agency, we know what you need to do, the preparation that festivals require and the best ways to pitch yourself to the event’s planners in advance. Here is a short but informative guide to explain what should be first on your festival check list.
- To begin with you will need to create a fun, dynamic and engaging campaign to kickstart your festival plans. A brainstorm with your team is a great way to bounce ideas off each other. If you have a small team, our marketing team will be happy to help. We can be used simply as idea generators or help to implement the plans and manage the campaign.
- Once you have decided on your killer campaign, you will need to work out what you need to make it a reality, what platforms you will use to market this campaign and how you’re going to increase following and engagement throughout.
- If you need a festival design, VerriBerri, are always on hand. We have an in-house designer that will be able to whip you up some incredible graphics in a flash. We can have as little or as much input as you need so don’t fret if you’re short of ideas.
- Once you have all the above ready to go, it’s time to pitch. You will need to get in touch with the festivals that you wish to trade at and send them an email containing all the information required and follow up at a later date to see if they’re interested. Our services can once again assist you in this process if needs be.
If you would like some more information about our team and how we can help you become traders at your chosen festival, then give our office a call today on 01376 386850.
