So you’ve finally posted your FunGig, and now you’re ready to start earning some cash while helping others enjoy some of the best things to do in San Diego. Before you start really making some money you are going to need to let other people know about the experience you’re offering. Fortunately, we’re here to help with a few easy ideas of how you can spread the word about your new business.
Obviously you need to harness the power of your social media connections if you really want to get your FunGig the most exposure. Post awesome pictures and enticing descriptions of the activity you’re selling on Facebook and Instagram, and tweet about it on Twitter. Make sure these posts are public so when you’re friends comment or like the post it’ll show up on their friends’ feeds too. This is an easy way to get a lot of exposure.
Send out an email to everyone in your contacts list and encourage them to help by sharing with friends of theirs who might be interested. You’d be surprised by how quickly chain emails can spread and before you know it you can have dozens of people interested in your FunGig. Be sure to include pictures or imbedded video, along with a link straight to your FunGig in your email to attract attention.
Talk… A Lot
When you’re out with your friends, talk about the cool new way you found to make some extra money, maybe it’s even what’s paying for your food and drinks that night. If your FunGig is something you’re truly passionate about, you’ll enjoy talking about it and your enthusiasm will shine through as a great marketing tool. When you’re out in public strangers might even overhear your conversation and become intrigued. The more you talk about the experience you’re offering, the better you’ll get at selling it, and the more exposure you’ll get.
In short, make sure everyone you know is aware of your FunGig and ask them to help spread the word. It may be shocking just how far your social circle reaches. Before long you’ll have people booking your FunGig left and right, and the best part is that the people you know will most likely leave you stellar reviews which will further help drive business your way.
