the idea girl says
working on my niagara region ontario canada news for various blogs from music, movies, film, entertainers and a little of everything.
I’ve sent a message back to NIFF Niagara Integrated Film Festival (were chatting back and forth on facebook) me – asking a zillion questions them – asking me for my ideas for different marketing, sales techniques
last week they asked me to give some input into the smallest film festival in the world and I did that and blogged it. This week it’s ticket sales, so I blogged my 6 pages of stuff I wrote while at the hairdressers!
yes I got my hair blonde roots done (goodbye grey!) for 2 hours, so what else could I do but sit there and write down my ideas while eating my latest favorite dish – pizza pizza’s chili and garlic toast (I swear I’m addicted to it now!)
all those beans are good for nutrition and vitamins plus they help to ward off colds and things like that.
So tonight I did a cross marketing theme.
First I looked at the newest venue Stratus Vineyards Facebook wall – I look for connections, who and what do they do, besides having hundreds of bottles of wine for sale in their winery and loads of space as a VENUE in June 2014 for NIFF?
Well on the facebook wall I found Patrick from Barbarosa – a cool band that has ties to Brock (filmed by Brock) and attended and played for a BROCK Alumni night at the mansion house pub in st catharines ontario canada.
So there’s 3 connections. The winery, the band, music videos and brock.
Actually that’s 4, and then I add NIFF’s announcement for ticket seat sales limited to 500 @ $9, with it being $12 at the door!
So cross marketing, I do music, entertainment news – this band played at the winery and at mansion house – target group – brock university students, niagara college and local adults in st catharines that LOVE this band’s music.
I’ve posted a note on LINKEDIN to recommend them to be AT NIFF as part of the entertainment in between films (during meals etc) if possible, and as a soundtrack country music style idea (western song) for a film soundtrack 🙂
cross marketing is fun, it’s a challenge and you get out several things in one post
now the cool thing is this
mansion house and stratus vineyards have weekly music events, so people will check out the blog post because it’s the most recent post on GOOGLE
they will see the message about the film festival, links to facebook pages, and the note that they can purchase a ticket on INDIEGoGo
I’m not allowed to have LINKS to things that are for sale on wordpress so I have no other choice but to blog it that way and with that i’m pushing it. 😉
hopefully because i’m blogging arts, music and film videos along with it, I wont get my blog shut down (it’s happened before.. sigh..)
anyways, keeping fingers crossed, the CROSS marketing will target the college university students in the niagara region until someone else does a blog post for those two businesses 🙂
now I’ve done the LINKEDIN groups today (the final 5), tweeted to magazines and media persons involved with screen writers, filming and movies, and I’ve looked at ONE OF the venue’s and I’ve been doing it now for 2 hours.
taking a break now!
I have other things to upload and blog.. at least one good thing came from all this! I have lots of content to blog that I don’t normally blog, but I will definitely return back to their youtube channels and blog other things they do in the future (I subscribed to each of their channels. i hope they do the same to the idea girl says yt channel or one of the other 4 channels i have for music, films, research, travel. tourism and community event news)
