Ignite Your Creativity
June 19, 2012
You've probably heard the expression, "There are no new ideas, just recycled ones." Well, it's true in many ways. So in that spirit, I want to spark your creativity by sharing a couple of idea starters from my lured.com database that you can use as is, or even better ... localize and customize them as something uniquely you.
Ugliest/Most Beautiful Bartender -- Simply place collection jars in participating bars, nightclubs and restaurants asking consumers to help find the (cities) "Ugliest/Most Beautiful Bartender." "If you would like to vote for the bartender you are looking at right now, please put some change in the jar." All money received benefits a charity.
Feature the bartenders on your website and social pages where people can also vote with a "Like," etc. You can even have the bartenders spend 30 minutes on Facebook, through a Google+ hangout session, etc. on a designated day/time to answer questions and so on.
**A great promo item. Create cardboard coasters that feature your logo on one side and have the other side include name and phone number input lines. Give them to client bars and hot spots around town.
Rock for the Ages -- A lucky guy scores an ultimate rock & roll adventure, complete with a limo (stocked with cans of domestic beer and tequila), and beautiful women to accompany him and his guest for an evening. First stop, a massage parlor. Next stop, a run through a fast-food drive-thru. Then, off to a cool place to act like a rock star, like great seats at a sporting event, or to a concert to hang out backstage your station. Finally, a late-night visit at a tattoo parlor for a complimentary tattoo, and a stop at a gentlemen's club on the way home.
Your social pages are a great way to share the pictures, do check-ins along the way for other people to join/follow, tweet from backstage, etc.
What ideas are working for you?
