Promote Summer Festivals Now

Seeking new publicity opportunities for your summer events and festivals? Consider major magazines. However, they usually have a 4-6 month deadline to receive your information.

Sometimes magazines will include contact information in their calendar section. Others will provide a phone number in the front part of the publication. Find out what kind of information the calendar editor needs - and the email address. More often than not, the only information that will get printed will be the name of your event, date, Website and phone number. So there's no need to go into a lengthy disseration describing your event.

But keep in mind, editors may only be able to use a couple of events from your region. So yours may not make the cut this time.

MARKETING TIP: If you've got a summertime festival, start promoting it now.
