"Everybody has a compulsion; cars, shoes, jewelry, food, clothing, motorcycles, video games, cheerleading, sports, books or music, American's passions are boundless and most people have had an idea for a concert or a music festival tucked away in their minds for many years, now is the time" Davidson says.
With a broken and stalled economy, many people feel empty and lost. They feel the need to reinvent themselves and fulfill a longing that's been incubating for years or decades, With nothing to lose, many wannabee promoters would rather gamble on their own drive and ability to start-up a new event than bet on their chances of finding a job that pays. Finding employment that pays and one that is also meaningful? Forget it.
"Promoting a major event in your town makes you the center of attention and renews the virtue of what could be." Hal said. The task is daunting if you don't know what you are doing, how to plan and organize and event, but with some instruction and a good plan, dreams can materialize in a few months.
It starts with a solid concept designed for the right time of the year, then finding the right venue (indoor or outdoor), developing your event plan with an accurate cost and revenue sheet. "If it can't make money, it doesn't make sense to apply all of that effort." Hal said.
"But it really comes down to relentless, tenacious promotion. Getting the word out far and wide with professional marketing- that's advertising promotions and public relations, both online and conventional, that's what most determines your odds of success." Davidson continued.
Once you feel the freedom of promoting an event which provides work to others, creates tourism, uses local contractors, provides increased sales taxes, and promotes your town, you become the founder of an annuity for the community, and you've found the answer to finding meaning in life while earning an income from your own hard work.
Regardless of what type of event, thousands of new promoters with that burning desire have resorted to Davidson's comprehensive manuals on promoting found online at www.concert-
