Hi Everyone - I came up with what I hope is a fun promotional idea that I want to run by my TB peeps, something to go hand-in-hand with our CD sales. My Beatles group has 2 gigs coming up in September (our first gigs since December 2019 due to COVID.) Both gigs are free and at venues we've played at before - one is a municipal gig, and the other is at a brewery. Background: The band has been around for 10 years, but this is a secondary band for most of my 6 bandmates; band plays 10 times a year tops due to scheduling challenges. 2019 was a good year, as we played our largest gig for a new audience (4,000 people,) and played our most lucrative gig to date ($5k.) The money is a bonus, but it's not our primary focus - we enjoy performing together and like to bring people joy. We expect about 300 people at each of the upcoming gigs. Here's the idea: There are several cool, limited edition Beatles items which have hit the market from different companies over the past few months. To add a bit of fun, my thought was to purchase two of these items (one for each gig) and give audience members the opportunity take one home (items are a $40+ value.) The idea is simple - for every CD purchased a raffle ticket is issued (CD's are $10, and sold for not much more than our cost), and during the final break a winning ticket will be chosen. The winner must be present. We'll have a voluntary sign up sheet as well for gig notifications (we've been doing this for years,) but this will not be a requirement to win. Anyway - is this a good idea, or is there a negative angle to this I have not considered? Your feedback is welcome. Thanks!
