About the Book

This workbook is designed to help newcomers to the world of performance and exhibition become successful! The secret is “marketing know-how” and this guide is designed to take you step-by-step through the business of finding funding, getting an affordable location, working out a budget, a game plan, and then attracting an audience who will ensure success. Whether you are a small art gallery, dance company, little theater group, comedy club, local museum, start-up opera company, or dance theater, this book is for you. It has already proven successful with all these groups as well as being successfully used by a landmark movie theater threatened with demolition, unless it paid its bills, a local PBS station faced with falling viewership and pledges, and even a zoo in one of America’s best loved cities. Simply said, whatever you have to offer can be marketed successfully.
