Hi folks,

 

First, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

Second, I’d like to add to Bob’s comments, to request that flyers always 
include complete information that doesn’t assume local knowledge.  In a 
addition to the TOWN, a complete street address (with STATE and ZIPCODE) is 
helpful for us out-of-towners.  Including a PHONE NUMBER (with AREA CODE) and a 
complete URL for more information is beneficial as well.

 

In the San Francisco Bay Area, hardcopy flyers are still distributed and used 
as needed, but most of our membership and associates take advantage of our 
electronic publications (“epubs”) web page, which doubles as an online flyers 
table (see a sample at http://bacds.org/current-mailings).In addition to 
the visual component, being able to link back to event or organization web or 
facebook pages seems to be helpful.

 

This is rather easy to set up if anyone’s looking for something similar for 
their community. 

 

On a separate note - I’ve had a back-burner project in mind to create an online 
repository of flyers to which folks could upload .pdf submissions, and if 
enough folks are interested and/or have suggestions of what would be helpful, I 
might move it to a forward burner.     I had been think in term of making it 
searchable by region, organization, dance genre, date/time, lead organziers or 
staff, event type, text on the flyer itself, or other things that come to mind. 
  If this is of interest for your group, please contact me off-list.

 

Thanx, Ric Goldman

Hi all,

At the Rochester NY monthly Contra Planning meeting, I took the action item to 
post here the following requests:

1) Please make sure to include the TOWN where your event is happening, 
prominently listed on any flyers
2) Our flyer table is getting very, very busy...can people consider 1/2 page 
flyers?

We purge flyers weekly (I use the scrap, if I can, otherwise recycle it.)
How do others manage the growing tide of paper?

For out Meet Me in St Louis weekend flyer this year - I formatted it as a full 
page - 2 sides - but folded in half to make a smaller 4 page booklet.  Takes 
less space and divides up the info more so it is not as cluttered 
I can send an example to anyone who wants one - and you could see how easy it 
is go use and maybe end up dancing with us.  I will send one separately to Bob.

Doing our part to stem the tide of paper, we have eliminated our own monthly 
dance's paper flyer. (We stopped making one, although not really to stem paper 
tide... did it purely to save our promo team time, as it seemed like hardly 
anyone was taking the flyers at dances.)
We do have business cards for our dance with email/website contact info on 
back.  Those are regularly taken.

We do still receive flyers from other series and special events.  We display 
them until they've expired.  We also have a bunch of flyers/brochures from 
CDSS, DEFFA (our Maine folk arts org), and other non-dance local community 
orgs.)

Some time ago we traded a flyer table for a hanging display inspired by 
something done at a festival (NEFFA maybe?) where flyers were inserted into 
clear pockets on wall.  Our imperfect system uses a shoe organizer with clear 
pockets.  (Imperfect b/c the pockets are narrow and don't fully display full 
page flyers. Otherwise it's perfect, b/c it takes no table space and very 
little time since most of the flyers just stay in the pockets and it gets 
folded up and put in a cabinet from dance to dance.)

Cheers,
Chrissy Fowler
