Event marketing strategies

Event marketing “Creativity vs. Logic” battle.

Do you ever wonder which side of your brain truly runs your business marketing?

Many times when I meet with a company or non-profit about their event marketing I find that they do one of two things: (1) they are too creative and the event/program has no direct correlation to their products or services or (2) they are so laser focused on their mission that the event is boring or bland.
This is what I call the “Creativity vs. Logic” battle. Do you ever wonder which side of your brain truly runs your business marketing? How do you think when it comes to your products or services? Is it more logical or creatively? In the world of business events, which makes more sense: being lead by logic or creativity? Keep reading and learn how both are useful to your reaching your end goal.
Creative: Everyone loves the creative side of events! For most that’s the FUN part when you get to use your imagination. People often think this is what planning events are all about: the color scheme, the entertainment, the food! In most brainstorming sessions the creative side is 90% of the conversation.
Logical: This side of events is the science. Budgets, event purpose, attendee demographics, tickets prices and even how many porta-potties per guest is discussed. This is the thinking that only a few (or one) in the room is concerned about. Although it’s only 10% of the discussion it’s probably 90% of what attendees remember if executed inefficiently.
Creative Reasoning: This is how you should think when forming an idea for your business event. It’s a way of looking at your products, services or situations from a fresh perspective that suggests unorthodox solutions. Unorthodox for you is “new event idea unique to your business.”
So which side of your brain should you use when planning your business even? That’s right: both! If you want it to be successful, your event must appeal to the reason behind the event (your products or services) and the presentation of your event (the creative way in which you represent your business).
Remember people want to attend events that are creative and entertaining, but as an organization you need your event to make sense. If it has no purpose then what’s the point?! So during your creative brainstorming session never forget WHY (logic) you are hosting your business event. Use creative reasoning instead of just creative and logical thinking alone.

Proven Ways
To Get Along Better With Everyone

Before you say anything to anyone,
ask yourself 3 things

     1.  Is it true?
2.  Is it kind?
3.  Is it necessary?
Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully.Never miss the opportunity to compliment
or say something encouraging to someone.Refuse to talk negatively about others;
don’t gossip and don’t listen to gossip.Have a forgiving view of people.
Believe that most people are doing the best they can.Keep an open mind; discuss, but don’t argue.
(It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.)

Forget about counting to 10.
Count to 1,000 before doing or saying anything
that could make matters worse.Let your virtues speak for themselves.If someone criticizes you,
see if there is any TRUTH to what he is saying;
if so, make changes.
If there is no truth to the criticism, ignore it
and live so that no one will believe the negative remark.Cultivate your sense of humor;
laughter is the shortest distance between two people.

H. L. Mencken’s Creed

     I believe that religion, generally speaking, has been a curse to mankind – that its modest and greatly overestimated services on the ethical side have been more than overcome by the damage it has done to clear and honest thinking.

I believe that no discovery of fact, however trivial, can be wholly useless to the race, and that no trumpeting of falsehood, however virtuous in intent, can be anything but vicious.

I believe that all government is evil, in that all government must necessarily make war upon liberty…

I believe that the evidence for immortality is no better than the evidence of witches, and deserves no more respect.

I believe in the complete freedom of thought and speech…

I believe in the capacity of man to conquer his world, and to find out what it is made of, and how it is run.

I believe in the reality of progress.

I – But the whole thing, after all, may be put very simply. I believe that it is better to tell the truth than to lie. I believe that it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe that it is better to know than be ignorant.
