T'was the night before the event. We've worked like crazy promoting it, getting it out to the media, handing out brochures everywhere we've been in the last month, posting it all over the internet, telling people, shouting it from the roof tops and whatever else we could think of to get the word out there. The goodie bags are filled, the rooms all set up, foods ready, bookings are in and now we wait. Tomorrow the day finally arrives when we get to sit back and watch the day unfold.
This series of blog posts have been to show you what strategies we've used to promote this workshop. It's very easy to tell people what to do but to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself is a whole different ball game. That's when the rubber hits the road and you really learn to practice what you preach.
We've got to be honest, there's nothing like having only a few bookings a week or two out from an event. Have any of you experienced that? We're pretty sure it's fairly common for most people to get their bookings in the last few days. It's a huge test of your faith and certainly tests your stress levels as well. For this event we would have liked perhaps twice the numbers we have but we are also extremely happy with what we've got. The women coming are really excited and it's going to be an awesome day. It really has come together nicely.
There are a couple of BIG events on The Sunny Coast this weekend that many women we know are going to plus we have realised a Saturday event for women, especially Mums is very difficult to get to. Most of them have family committments and find it hard to get away for a whole day.
So we've learnt alot and this being our first big event, we have actually pulled it off really well. I'll let you know how it goes. It's going to be a brilliant day. Thanks for coming on this journey with us.
