    Keep them Coming Back - Marketing to the Art Fair Patron

    in Business

    The interested parties have come to your party: that Art Festival you have been planning and marketing for 364 days. How do you make sure they love the show, bring their friends, buy art, spread the word about what they found there and can't wait for next year?


    Sharon McAllister, Executive Director of ArtFest Fort Myers (FL) and Jenny Wright, Festival Director of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival (TX) join the conversation and share their best tips for building a memorable experience for their patrons.


    We'll learn about their decisions on:



    public relations
    marketing
    community relations
    sponsor building
    artist relationships
    plus what works and even more interestingly what they've done that doesn't work!


    Connie Mettler presents results from her 2014 Best Art Fair Survey of art fair buyers where she gathered data about what makes them come to a festival and why ... plus ... why there are formerly favorite shows that they no longer attend.


    Both of these events were chosen as Top 50 Events in the survey.

    American Daily Review: Divide & Conquer

    in Politics Conservative

    Constitution Corner: Overriding vetoes; Rand Paul emphatically demonstrates that he is, after all, his father's son; Senate GOP backing plan to extend ObamaCare subsidies...in exchange for gutting ObamaCare itself; Of course: Unions seek exemption from Louisiana minimum wage hike they shoved down Louisiana business's throats; Barack Obama nationalizes water, or "Our puddles belong to him"; Yet another Greek bailout is imminent, which illustrates, metaphorically and literally, why the term "Greek" is a salacious double entendre; Another "negative GDP" quarter, another set of the same old Obama excuses; Terrorist Cuba off State's terror list, North Korean cyberwarriors, and Red China annexes the South China Sea; Leftist dhimmis redefine free speech and the First Amendment as "terrorism"; The inherent nature of bipartisan free trade agreements, and whether what we gain in economic growth is worth the price of what the libs insert into the fine print.


    And, in the third hour of the Saturday Afternoon Extravaganza (4PM Eastern/1PM Pacific) on Constitution Radio with Douglas V. Gibbs on KMET 1490 AM:


    If a federal appellate court upholds a lower federal court injunction against an illegal, unconstitutional Executive amnesty order that the president continues to ignore, does it make a sound?; House Republicans grovel before Loretta Lynch over Lois Lerner, like they did Eric Holder before her; The "Is Obama incompetent or malevolent?" question re-arises over live anthrax shipments and IRS hacking; Do we have equality before the law or don't we?  Not if the Black Klan gets its way; and how the Left and the Right commemorate Memorial Day.
