Successful promo ideas for outreach events?
Posted 17 July 2013 - 12:32 PM
We've brainstormed and are considering the following:
Send an email to the science teachers within our clubs district asking them to post it to their students. Most High/middle Schools in NC have individual websites.
Putting out flyers on the community bulletin boards that a lot of grocery stores now have.
Social networking via our Facebook and Google+ pages.
Definitely try and find the few retailers left peddling scopes and see if they'll let us post a flyer near their displays.
List our event on the community events bulletin boards on our local NPR station and family events sites. We have a local group called "My Winston-Salem" that does a "Weekend Round Up" listing of the best events locally in several categories.
Promote our event on Cloudy Nights here in the "Starparty" and "Outreach" forum posts.
Can anyone suggest other ideas that they have found to work?

The luck-of-the-draw situation with your 10 & 2 sounds like our community calendar for TV. It cannot be counted on at all.

We do a daytime indoor event once a year at the library (with solar scopes outside)as well as some moon and planet viewing in the busiest park in town in the evening.
