1. Use Social Media Judiciously

People expect to be able to find your art online and learn more about you there. That's not a bad thing, but you want to be judicious. Don't make the mistake of trying to cater to every single platform out there. If you aren't careful you'll wind up with a full-time social media job and you won't have time for creating art!

Food Truck Brand Marketing

The Essence Of Food Truck Brand Marketing
By Richard Myrick for Mobile Cuisine

Facebook Twitter More...

Branding doesn't create, build or strengthen your brand. You read that correctly. First and foremost, your food business brand marketing must always be a reflection of the quality of your menu and service. There are really no exceptions to this rule.


Food Truck Brand Marketing

To understand why, it's first necessary to define what is part of a food truck's "brand." Most people think a brand consists of exterior elements: the truck's name, it's logo and the tagline. To get a general understanding of a brand, think about it in the simplest terms.

Application Deadlines for next month from FN

by Festivalnet Dot Com, posted 12/02/19 01:01:02

Hello FN member,

This is your free bi-monthly deadlines reminder
from FestivalNet.com.

Note: The links below go to a page showing event deadlines only.
Visit Advanced Search to view all FestivalNet listings.

View Artist & Crafter Deadlines

View Musician & Performer Deadlines

View Food Vendor Deadlines

View Commercial Vendor Deadlines

To search All events in our database, go to FestivalNet.com.



This bimonthly Deadlines Reminder is a service of FestivalNet.com. Below are some common questions about this newsletter.

How often is the Deadlines Reminder updated?
The web page is updated daily and this reminder is sent to you by email twice a month (if you selected this list in your E-lists settings).

Why are events showing old dates?
We include these events to maximize your chances of finding a great show and not missing the deadline. When it comes to deadlines, they are usually around the same time each year, so the old information is usually very useful. We do not publish deadlines over two years old. FYI - We make an intensive effort every year to get event updates, but some sponsors simply won't respond to our many requests.

Do I need to join FN to see full contact details?
The basic info is free, but full contact details require paid Pro Member access. This is the service we provide. We work very hard to collect, research, edit, and compile detailed information on thousands of events.

FYI - There are helpful tips about sorting the data on the deadlines page! Just look for the question marks at the top of each column.

Good luck with your work!

Holiday Markets 101

How to Successfully Sell Your Art at Holiday Markets 
Steff Metal for Empty Easel

The truth is, not everyone can afford to buy large pieces of art or craft for their loved ones, so it's critical to your success this season to offer a variety of price points.

1. Display both expensive and inexpensive work

Arrange smaller, more inexpensive items alongside your larger, more expensive pieces. These might include prints, greeting card sets, and smaller scale sculptures or wall hangings.

When I set up a stall, I like to choose 3-5 of my larger, more impressive pieces to attract people to the stall, and stock the rest with smaller items. Direct people interested in your larger pieces to a photograph book or your website.

Get the MOST from your Stage

by Festivalnet Dot Com, posted 11/19/19 10:42:08

Get The Most From Your Stage
By Greg Whiting with The Sound Guys

Facebook Twitter More...

As you're planning your event, here are a few steps you can take to maximize the entertainment value of your stage.

1) Allow time for strike and set

Even with a professional, two person crew (average for most festival/fair stages), it usually takes 15 minutes to get one act off, and the next artist ready to start. If you’re scheduling each act for 1 hour, their set will actually only be 45 minutes.

Also, communicate! Knowing what acts are coming up, and being prepared for them will help the crew to be prepared.

2) Rent a backline

Setting up and micing a drum set takes a good bit of time. Many production companies offer rental of a drum set and/or bass guitar amplifier. If all of the acts know they’re required to use what is provided, it will minimize set up time.
