WHEN HANDING OUT FLYERS:
· Always have a smile and try your best to engage
people in conversation. Putting
up posters is advertising for the masses, but handing out flyers is much
more one-on-one communication. Try
to make people laugh somehow and maybe ask them if they have ever heard of
OM Trio. Or, you can ask them
if they even want the flyer. If
someone doesn’t look interested, don’t force the band on them. Move on and look for a more open-minded individual.
It has been scientifically proven that smiles are contagious, and it’s also been proven that smiling makes people feel better. If you give off good “vibes” as people walk towards you, they will probably smile back and will be more receptive to a flyer. It works.
BE PREPARED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS.
People will ask you questions about the show. You should be able to answer their questions intelligently. They will appreciate your helpfulness, and of course answering their questions will make them more likely to go to the show. We will try to get you all the info about the show ahead of time.
Some of the most common questions:
What type of music is it?
What venue is it?
Is it 21+?
Who’s the opening band?
What day of the week is the show?
How do you get to the venue?
How much are tickets?
How can I get advance tickets?
ENGAGE PEOPLE IN CONVERSATION.
As people come out of the show, ask them if they had a good time. Make small talk and find out what music they like because it may relate somehow to the show you’re promoting. The stronger the personal connection you make, the more likely they are to pay attention to your recommendation.
DON’T BE TOO PUSHY.
Offer people the flyer but don’t stick it in their face.
UNDERSTAND THE AUDIENCE TYPE.
If you’re flyering at a show with an older crowd, saying “Hey dude, this show is gonna be, like, the sickest shit ever, man!” won’t make them want to take a flyer. But that may work with a young crowd.
