Thanks Sandra: Yes I wrote it.... I know Cec the publisher very well and he was at our first gathering last month. He took some pics for us too.
Marketing your club is so important to give it a good chance of getting off the ground.
For example our local newspaper, the Lakes Mail, which I sent information to, looked after us very well with a story and photo (twice, before and after, in the paper and online), and we have online mentions at NBN TV and the local ABC. In addition we had a good mention in the Newcastle Folk Club magazine. It is in the Folk Federation's Cornstalk listings and also in the Folk News email which goes out regularly to lots of people. The Hunter Scots Club, which we hire the hall from, gave us a good mention in their newsletter. We also had brief Community Calendar mentions in two other Newcstle based weekly newspapers plus the Saturday Newcastle Herald. Then there's my bulk emails to people, phone calls and word of mouth etc.
Now all we have to do is ensure we run the club properly with a good mix of musicians and singers etc and keep at it for the future.
Let us know if you are ever coming up this way and a seat in the front row will be reserved!!
