Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Calendar Listings (newspapers, radio, television)
  • Emails
  • Posters/Flyers
  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Calendar listings and flyers were best for reaching audiences that we normally don't communicate with. So they were helpful in getting a more diverse crowd
