Marketing Advice

 

Marketing a Comedy Club

You have to be light on your feet to stay ahead of the curve these days, especially when you're promoting a comedy club. We have the information you need to create a nimble, yet effective marketing strategy for your business.

Still looking for a way to effectively market your comedy club? Although there is no single way that's right to market in this industry, there are a lot of wrong ways.

The marketplace is constantly shifting to accommodate consumer demand and that means businesses need to adapt their marketing requirements accordingly. The consistent application of solid marketing principles is one of the few business requirements that has stayed the same.

Media Monitoring

Some marketing initiatives lend themselves to simple measurement while others are more challenging. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. But how do you go about measuring your brand's marketing footprint in geographic and demographic sectors? Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your comedy club a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. Although media monitoring is not the only tool for measuring intangible brand qualities, it has the benefit of highlighting negative PR, giving your comedy club the ability to control bad buzz when it appears in the marketplace.

Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is one of the most elusive marketing techniques in a small business owner's arsenal. Viral marketing takes guts and if it is incorporated in the marketing strategy of a comedy club, you ultimately have to cross your fingers and hope for the best. Even though total control is impossible, the right actions at the right times can encourage the viral distribution of brand messages. Social media and other online vehicles can seed a viral marketing campaign, but you'll need to nurture their development through direct customer interaction as well as other techniques.

Technological Expertise

The field of marketing has embraced the digital age with enthusiasm and vigor. Although that doesn't make the marketing fundamentals that applied twenty years ago invalid, many marketing principles are being reinterpreted through the lens of today's technology. One of the things that needs to be considered by comedy clubs tends to be a search for news to leverage technology to scale up the organization's promotional firepower. Despite the initial cost associated with many technological solutions, the long-term payoff for the right technologies almost always outweighs the upfront expense.
