  4. 4. <ul><li>GENERAL MARKETING PRINCIPALS </li></ul><ul><li>The development of an effective marketing and communications plan is essential for the delivery of a successful festival. </li></ul><ul><li>The key is to match your festival concept (the theme, programme, etc) with the appropriate audience (those who will attend or participate in your event). In order to do that, you must have a strong idea of what the event actually offers and to whom. You also need to have an effective plan of action and the necessary resources to implement it. </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
  5. 5. <ul><li>SPECIAL FESTIVAL MARKETING CONSIDERATIONS </li></ul><ul><li>Festival are, in general, special annual or one-off manifestations </li></ul><ul><li>that take place in a specific, relatively short time-frame. </li></ul><ul><li>You have a finite period to plan and action your marketing activity and a one-time-only chance to mount your festival. Remember, attendees that you attract to your festival as a result of your marketing activity are themselves key to the event’s success. If you attract the right type and level of attendees, this will help create the special atmosphere and experience that the Festival aspires to offer, not to mention any financial or other targets that you have set. </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
  6. 6. <ul><li>FESTIVAL MARKETING </li></ul><ul><li>Where to start: the situational analysis </li></ul><ul><li>The first stage of devising your marketing plan involves what is sometimes called the ‘situational analysis’ . </li></ul><ul><li>It basically means taking a step back and having a good look at all the available information that relates to the festival before devising a plan to move forward </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
  7. 7. <ul><li>SIYUATIONAL ANALYSIS </li></ul><ul><li>The existing audience for the event ( i.e. who comes, where from, how many, level </li></ul><ul><li>of repeat attendees, level of first time attendees, has the audience profile changed </li></ul><ul><li>over the years, etc?) </li></ul><ul><li>If there is any existing research ( i.e. do you hold any hard information on your </li></ul><ul><li>audiences, have you closely examined it, what does it tell you, is it recent, what </li></ul><ul><li>else do you need to find out, etc?) </li></ul><ul><li>Previous marketing activity and resources ( i.e. what has worked in the past, </li></ul><ul><li>what could be developed further, etc?) </li></ul><ul><li>Available resources ( i.e. budget, staff, stakeholder support and amount of time </li></ul><ul><li>available to deliver the plan, etc) </li></ul><ul><li>Competitor analysis ( i.e. does the event have any competitors, can you learn </li></ul><ul><li>from them?) </li></ul><ul><li>Income targets ( i.e. what level of return does the marketing activity aim to deliver </li></ul><ul><li>by way of ticket sales, what are the other sources of potential income and can </li></ul><ul><li>marketing activity influence these?) </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
  8. 8. <ul><li>MARKETING RESOURCES </li></ul><ul><li>When preparing your Marketing and Communications Plan you must keep the available resources at the forefront of your mind. </li></ul><ul><li>There are three key resource factors to consider: </li></ul><ul><li>> Budget – you need to establish the basic marketing budget at the outset. 5-10-15-20% </li></ul><ul><li>> Time – you need to be aware of what’s actually possible in the time available – GETTING EASIER </li></ul><ul><li>> Staff – you need to agree who’s responsible for what and identify if there are any sources of additional assistance </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
  9. 9. <ul><li>Identifying Target Markets </li></ul><ul><li>Identify in detail the types of groups that you will actually spend time and money trying to attract: specific and realistic. </li></ul><ul><li>Who are the Target Markets?: Residents and Visitors: these may include previous attendees; new audiences; special interest and community groups; schools; specific age, socio-economic and ethnic groups; families, couples, tourists, future sponsors, the media, stakeholders, key influencers </li></ul><ul><li>Where are the Target Markets?: for each entry in the WHO category you should identify WHERE they are likely to be drawn from, i.e. the local community, the wider region, Vietnam, Asia, the world.

You need to understand your current audience profile in order to maintain and develop it further. </li></ul><ul><li>Audience data should be captured at every event and trends analysed and compared to previous years. Your existing audiences can be useful ambassadors for your event. They are important in spreading positive word-of-mouth and should be nurtured in order that they will return. </li></ul><ul><li>In accordance with budget limitations, remember to concentrate on your existing and ‘potential new audiences’ and don’t spend valuable time trying to convert groups that your research and experience tell you may be indifferent or unlikely to attend. </li></ul><ul><li>The more you understand about your current and potential audiences, the more sophisticated you can become in using different techniques to target specific groups </li></ul><ul><li>Remember to talk to them regularly – mailings, offers etc. Build relationships </li></ul>British Council Vietnam Festival Workshop 17-20 March 2010
