24 Hour Creative Marathon

I enjoy attending and supporting local events, especially tech-oriented or socially-conscious ones. However, I often find that such local events have poor or inconsistent attendance. When I ask some of my tech-oriented, socially-conscious acquaintances why they don’t try to attend these events too, I often get the following two excuses:

1. I didn’t know about the event.
2. I didn’t want to pay the cover.

Okay, those are two valid excuses, which I’ll try to eliminate right now for this weekend’s 24 Hour Creative Marathon. Here’s the deal: If you significantly promote the 24 Hour Creative Marathon, I will pay for your admission to the Gallery Show. And since not everyone has the means to do significant promotion, I will pay half your admission cost for even minor promotional efforts.

Since I often complain about idle talk and lack of action, I’d be a total hypocrite if I didn’t put my money where my mouth (or at least my blog) is. Plus, after discussing this with Josh Sager, I think this allows us to solve two problems at the same time. It allows people to earn free admission to the Gallery Show (which includes live bands, food, and drink) while increasing awareness of this great creative arts marathon that benefits the Creative Treehouse.

This offer is valid starting now until the beginning of the Gallery Show at 8 PM, Saturday, September 29th. Please let others know about this offer and this event. Hopefully, it’ll spread virally amongst the local social media community and we’ll have high attendance and participation.

Finally, here’s some brief thoughts about the difference between significant and minor promotion, plus how I plan on tracking/rewarding the people who take me up on this offer:
Significant promotion = Blogging about the event, printing and distributing flyers, getting mainstream press coverage or placement on a major site, etc…
Minor promotion = Emailing, twittering, social networking, and/or talking about it with friends/coworkers/family/etc…

Those are just some suggestions, feel free to suggest more ways of promoting the event. Also, the easiest way for me to track this is if you link both http://edeify.com/2007/09/28/promote-24hourcreativemarathoncom-earn-free-show-admission/ and http://24hourcreativemarathon.com from whatever you do. Otherwise you’ll have to either leave a comment or email me about what you did. Right before 8 PM tomorrow, I’ll take a list of your names and give them to whoever will be covering the door at the Creative Treehouse. And if you see me during the evening, I totally owe you a hug and/or high-five!
