Springboard Marketing – There are numerous events and festivals in the calendar for spring across New Zealand and if you haven’t already done so, why not look into ways of using these events to promote your own business? Here are a few ideas:

  •     Promote local events on your website home page for a short time to help market your own business off the back of interest / search queries generated by the events.
  •     Ensure you include a link to the event website so people can find more information and use relevant tagging (e.g. if you are an accommodation provider in Auckland, add a title to your promotional paragraph reading ‘Accommodation for the Auckland Blossom Festival’).
  •     Find out if you can advertise your services in marketing material (website, brochures, email newsletters) distributed by event organisers.
  •     Develop an ‘event-special’ with discounted rates for visitors attending the event or booking via your website for a limited time only.
