4 Keys to Successful Event Promotion
By Jonathan Reynold
In this age of information overload, it is becoming harder and harder to get people to attend your events. The same person is receiving invitations to say 20 different companies. Thus, it doesn't really matter whether you are organizing a fundraising campaign or a business dinner; your ultimate goal is to attract maximum people to your program and get them to actually show up for the same. Let's discuss the R.S.V.P. approach. It is one smartest tool available by which you can innovatively promote your events.
R - Repetition
You have to repeatedly hammer your message to the target audience. Most people are extremely busy nowadays; they ignore or simply delete emails from unknown senders. But if you send it a couple of more times, they may just become curious enough to open and check what it's all about. Thus, if you have the money and the staff, try to include a series of effective communication strategies to market your program. You can simply start with a mini teaser promo and then send out a "Save the Date" message. Your email headline should be eye-catching plus the text should be short and to-the-point for people usually don't have much time to sit back and read a lengthy emails.
Prehistoric Mammoths in Films

Prehistoric Mammoths in the Cinema
No prehistoric movie or television series which is set in the Stone Age seems complete without at least one Woolly Mammoth being included. Normally it is the dinosaurs that dominates the movies, but if you are going to write a script about the Ice Age or about early mankind then a Woolly Mammoth seems a prerequisite for film makers. Now that CGI has come to the fore, depicting these large elephants with their long shaggy fur coats is not too much of a problem. Although we have been told by technicians and CGI operators that getting the fur to look realistic on screen is quite a challenge, at least with dinosaurs (feathered ones excepted), the computer experts are not encumbered with these skin features and dinosaurs are to some extent a little easier to re-create for the big screen.
