On September, 24, 1998, Joshua Bloom, program Associate for the National Main Street Center came to our local Main Street program to help with promotional ideas.
Participants brainstormed ideas for improvements to future events such as the annual Lancaster Street Fair.
Some ideas for street fair tie-ins were discussed:
If you're a local person with ideas or are in a Main Street Project elsewhere, would you please zap any ideas you've thought of or used to us. I'll post them here for all to see.
Cross promotional ideas:
Have cross promotion between two compatible businesses.
SS to mivie theater: Create some options for the mechanics (a menu) of how this would work. Explain idea to both parties. Perhaps a dollar off on theater tickets from SS Reataurant, and a free food item in return via a certificate for the reataurant. If a pre movie dinner get a buck off on the movie. Movie theater displays menus for restaurant, which in turn displays movie info.
Problem - not having ideas fall apart on the way to making them happen.
