Julia wrote, “I need some feedback on a little sign pollution issue I’m having…
I represent a local retailer that offers a TON of free and paid special events, and weekly events and they all have different organizers….In addition to that, we help promote community events, so we also have those all over the shop as well. Not to mention actual sales related promotions…Any suggestions?”
Miranda posted, “Hey, Carnies! I’m working with a high-profile celeb to host a Virtual Tasting, and one of the key things that keep coming up in calls is marketing not driving enough support to these IG Live events. While we do everything we can think of, I’m hoping for some out-of-the-box ideas that are low-no budget that can be implemented quickly (within days). Any ideas? HELP.”
