Plan a speed dating event
This should cover most of the marketing and pay you a nice wage for the evening of the event.
In the letter, advise the venue owner that you will call for a personal meeting.
With all the pertinent information in hand, the venue owner should make a final decision after meeting you personally and developing a working relationship based on your common interests.
At the event, make sure all of you guest have a name badge (Alias's are ok and suggested) and assign them a unique number for easier match results.
Have them complete a registration form with contact information, email address, their real name, and Alias (if using one) for matching purposes. During the event, every 6-8 minutes you ring the bell and the daters switch dates.
Offer to hold one event as a test for the venue to see firsthand the results of your efforts.
Offer to set up a regular schedule of events in advance if the first party is successful.
Come up with a logo for brand presence and to gain the feel of a professional company. But approach the age group you are most comfortable dealing with and can establish some type of common ground with. Talk to the owners/managers at local restaurants, coffee houses, and such about hosting an event at their space. Even though it is important to advertise your event, remember to invite singles that you know to your event.
Decide how you can be of benefit to the venue and how hosting a speed dating event will help them AND you so everyone can make a little extra cash. After you secure a location(s) you'll want to set a date and begin marketing your Event, the Venue, and your company (yourself). Let them know a little about the venue you selected, the types of people you anticipate on participating, and ask them to attend. Prepare a Speed Dating Kit for your events with the following: · Pens/Pencils · Name Tags · Note Cards · Table Tents/ Table Markers · Bell/ Whistle 8.
Additional Info **Assure your guest that the events are for entertainment.
