I found out they will come. Even if in small numbers. I’d rather take a few versus none! So its fall now folks. Time for cold, dew filled mornings with frost on the windshield and scarves wrapped tightly around the neck. I’m hoping that also means folks will be searching for fun things to do inside. This is where I get my chance to shine. If you’ve wandered around my page here, you may have noticed that I held my very FIRST art party event!!! Last month was the inaugural Crafts @ Cocktails.
Here’s how I got things moving. With all things being tied via social media apps, I made a decision to begin a MeetUp group, which I creatively dubbed Crafts & Cocktails. Within a few short hours of the group’s approval 40 plus people had joined the group. What a fabulous way to directly reach my target audience without spending tons of marketing $$. Now, not even a month later I have reached nearly 90 potential crafters through MeetUp.com and over 300 via Facebook. Not too shabby for a measly $20 MeetUp group organizer fee!
Only a couple of days of the MeetUp, posting I received an invite from a local bar to organize an event at their location. Next thing I know, VOILA! I have two more events scheduled with the anticipation and goal of it becoming a regularly scheduled event. So here we come Fireside Lounge, see you tomorrow!
