Here we are, Day 3 of our FREE Live online painting event! This event is leading up to the 3 year anniversary of Paint Party Headquarters. I’ve had so much fun teaching you the Sunflower Landscape painting and how to teach a paint party. So, today I’m teaching you how to contact venues for your paint party events. Not just any venue, a popular venue in your area! I promise, it is super EASY and QUICK. It just involves a quick search on Facebook.
Facebook is basically a search engine!
Seriously, treat Facebook like google when you are searching for venues. All you need to do is go to the search bar in Facebook and type in your city (or a surrounding one) and the word “restaurants”. It is going to bring up a bunch of restaurants in your area. Just kind of scroll through and select on you think might be FUN!
Now you want to do a little research on their page. You want to make sure they are active on social media. How many people have liked their page? Are they posting on a regular basis? Are their followers interacting with their page and posts? This is especially important if you are just starting out and don’t have an audience yet. If this all looks good and promising you will want to message them on Facebook!
What to say in your message
Before you message the restaurant make sure it isn’t dinner time. You want to message them in earlier in the morning or before the dinner rush like two or three o’clock. And all you want to say is this:
Hi, my name is Heidi and I teach paint parties. I would love to come to your restaurant on a slow night. Do you have time to talk this week?
You are keeping it short and sweet and the question at the end, SUPER important. When you ask a question our brain automatically goes into answer mode. If you introduce yourself and then give a bunch of information (i.e. what you do, prices, etc.) our brains get overwhelmed. So remember, short and sweet and add in that question.
Now, you don’t just have to contact restaurants, you can use this to contact country clubs or really any possible venue in your area.
Time for a little homework
Follow the exact script above and message 5 restaurants (or country clubs or some other venue). Don’t message more than 5 venues. Why? Well, first if you send 20 messages and then get instant reply’s for a couple of them you will be FREAKING OUT! So, send 5 then wait a day and send 5 more. This way you can shift your focus from sending the messages to getting butts in seats!
Text me at 817-373-5478 when you have completed the homework! I want to know what happened! Did a venue get back to you? Did you book a paint party? Wasn’t it easy to contact those 5 venues for your events?
