Promoting your event

megaphone manUse local media:

Local newsletters, daily papers, radio stations and television in your area are always keen on covering events for a good cause, so make them aware of the details of your event in good time! Some ingenious advertising of your own can also increase your audience.

Hand out flyers:

A cheap, effective way of promoting your event is to hand out flyers a few weeks in advance. Make them as interesting as possible: include all the key information such as the date, venue and type of event you have planned. Make sure people know about your event!

Smile for the camera:

Think about photo opportunities – local papers love to use fun, entertaining photos as a basis for covering of local events. Book a photographer, because a good photo is a great way of generating media coverage and makes an excellent memento of your successful event.

Write a press release:

Why not send out a press release too?  It’s an excellent means of promoting a good oral healthcare message through your local media outlets to a large, local audience. In the words of Blue Peter, here’s one we made earlier!
