Owning your own entertainment business can be pretty exciting. Not only do you have all of the benefits of being your own boss, but you get to make your money by entertaining others and putting a smile on people’s faces. For many people, this is a dream come true – a million times better than doing a dull 9-5 office job.

However, the marketing industry is fiercely competitive and one of the hardest industries to crack. With an abundance of other entertainment companies out there, yours needs to stand out above the crowd.  To do that, you need to think carefully about marketing, and that is what we are going to look at in more detail in this post.

Sell the experience

Entertainment differs from other services in that you are literally trying to sell an experience. You also have to compete with some huge competitors such as TV, YouTube, and social media. Consumers are increasingly wanting to play an active role in their entertainment rather than passively watching something. Think about the success of reality shows are encouraged to phone in to cast their vote or Tweet along in real-time, using a dedicated hashtag. The more you involve potential customers in the experience, the better. Let them know what they can expect if they decide to pay for your services and what kind of experience you can offer.

Think outside the box

Entertainment, by its very nature, is a creative industry, so you have the perfect opportunity to think outside the box when it comes to marketing methods and do something that will stick in people’s minds. You could think about using pens to promote your business – everyone loves a free pen, and when they come to use it, they will immediately be reminded of you. Alternatively, you could do something really out there and flashy – look at projecting an advert onto the side of a building, for example. 

Know where your audience is

Businesses have a huge advantage these days in that there are a plethora of platforms on which they can advertise on social media being one. This is mostly free and can reach a vast number of people very easily. However, it can be tempting for businesses to try and be active and engaging on all of them. While the effort is commendable, spreading yourself too thinly quite often means that you aren’t as effective as you would like to be.

Think about your target demographic and where they are likely to be hanging out. If you are thinking along the lines of age – the millennials can generally be found on Twitter and Instagram, the youth are on Snapchat and the Boomers on Facebook. 

Keep your followers engaged

You don’t just want new followers; you want to keep your existing ones as well. Most entertainment companies thrive on loyal subscribers, which keeps acquisition rates low and retention rates high. To do this, though, you have to work to keep them engaged. Let them know what is coming next, give them sneak peeks, and offer them exclusive discounts. A happy and interested customer is a loyal one.
