A couple weeks ago, I helped a Client host an open house at their new office space.
An open house is a great marketing tool. It’s an excuse to reach out to your Clients and to show them how much you appreciate them! Offer door prizes or prizes that can be won in a drawing. Always have refreshments and be sure each individual leaves with marketing materials and a small, branded gift.
I’m not sure, but I just called myself one in a Proposal!
One of the things I pride myself in after being in business for five years, is being able to provide custom solutions for my Clients.
I was approached a few weeks ago by a group that wanted to produce a large community event. After learning more about their needs, it turned out that they didn’t want me to produce the event for them; they wanted me to work alongside them so they could learn to produce their event for years to come.
Who does that?
Earlier this year, I had trouble sleeping. Christmas had just ended and I was infatuated with the German-inspired Christmas markets (Christkindlmarket, Christkindlmarkt, Weihnachtsmarkt,) that I was seeing displayed all over Facebook. Having lived in Cologne, Germany for two years, I was able to experience these markets first-hand.
The nostalgia, the smells, the history, the culture. This is what kept me up at night. With my event planning/marketing experience and my knowledge of the Christmas markets, I thought Des Moines could use an event of this type. And I was the one to make it happen.
