  12. 12. Marketing Strategy Host parties • Who do we invite to these parties? We need people who will get us gigs to bartend at. *Idea: what if we contacted active Yelp.com reviewers and threw/bartended a party to get to know them? -this could get us connected to their online “outgoing/party” community and a lot of great reviews *Idea: what if we threw professional “networking” events? If we did them right, maybe the networkers will find us other gigs too.
  13. 13. Success Metrics (for now) • Increased # of bartending gigs • Increased # of Yelp reviews
  14. 14. Competitive Analysis • Less than 10 bartender companies in Bay Area – Main Competitors: Drinksf.com, baytenders.com, allan-brown.com • Mostly service 100+ guests events • Don’t aggressively cater to smaller events • Poor image: – Bad websites – Unprofessional on phone – Don’t follow-up with emails
  15. 15. Competitive Advantage • Price: We do it for FREE!!! – (Make money off tips, for now) • Aggressive promotions: – Promoters actively promoting service – Large personal networks (Fernando, Jireh, Marcy) – Hosting events

  17. 17. How can we be better? Potential ideas: • Aggressive, innovative promotions – Hand out flyers at SJSU – Connection to Bay Area club/party scene – Sponsor parties to get name out • Better marketing materials – Website, backdrops, flyers • *Expand service offering
  18. 18. Expand Service Offering (idea) What if we also serve smoothies and coffee? Coffee-mobile Smoothies-mobile Alcohol-mobile Starbucks Jamba Juice bar This way, if people hire us for one, they’re more likely to hire us to do another.
