This weekend, we’re looking forward to the St. Pete Beach Corey Area Craft Festival, where we’ll be checking out many of our favorite crafters and artists sharing some of their latest work. We anticipate seeing many of you there. Will you help us spread the word?
There are many ways you can help us do that:
Our Facebook page is one great way to share information with your friends and followers about American Craft Endeavors events. If you are an ACE participating crafter, it’s also a wonderful way to share your latest works, booth number at the next show, or any sales or promotions you’ll have going on a show weekend. Don’t forget, this page helps to spread the word about you, too!
On our Facebook page, you can also RSVP to our shows through the Events tab. Every week, we create an event for the show of that following weekend. This is a great way to share information about the show with the folks on your Facebook feed as well as with anyone you’d like to email or reach out to with the information. The RSVPs also give us an idea of how many people on our social media communities are finding those events and sharing them with the world.
Instagram is a tool that’s become increasingly important for us over the past few months and you can easily see why. Visual encouragement to attend our shows and get to know our crafters more personally can be a great motivator for people to spread the word about our shows. Plus, our hashtags for the shows let the world know that it’s easy to see our shows from a multitude of perspectives. Add this weekend’s show tag, #StPeteCoreyCraftFest , to the captions of any photos you take at this weekend’s craft festival and post to Instagram, and give others a glimpse of the festival from your eyes.
You can also be an active part of spreading the word by simply looking to your media outlets and sharing info about the show with them! Our amazing ACE family does a great job of marketing the shows and spreading the word as far and wide as possible, but sometimes we miss blogs, event calendars or other media outlets. Do you know of any online or offline places that would want to know about ACE craft festivals? We’d love to learn more! Post some ideas in the comments section of this blog or shoot us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org .
At ACE, we work very hard to ensure that our craft festivals are enjoyable for patrons, profitable for crafters and inspiring and fun for all. Please share your thoughts on how we can achieve these objectives today, and don’t forget to spread the word about the St. Pete Beach Corey Area Craft Festival this Sat. and Sun. April 5-6 from 10-5. As always, check out our online communities for more information and www.artfestival.com for show calendars and online artist or crafter show applications.
