A Spectral Street Team?May 20th, 2012
Hi everyone. I’ve been out today hanging up fliers up for the Downtown West Bend Ghost Walk. If anyone would like to help, here’s how!
I’ve uploaded a print-ready PDF file of the flier. If you’ve got a business, a break room, or a bare spot on Granny’s fridge, consider printing one off and putting it out.
Everything about this Washington County Paranormal project is very punk rock, very DIY. The book is being self-published, the funds raised by the walks are going to publish the book, hell, I’m guiding the walks, booking appearances, sending out press releases, et al. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not attempting to tug at your heart strings. This is exactly how I wanted it. I wanted complete creative control, and I wanted it to succeed or fail based on my own performance and skills. Of course, I’m not so headstrong that I can’t accept help should someone want to offer it. Even if you print off and hang up just one flier, that would be a huge gesture, in my humble opinion.
Keep in mind though, always get permission before hanging up or leaving one of the fliers laying around. And don’t print a bunch off and toss them off the roof of your house in a phony ticker tape parade, “Simpsons” style. Littering is bad.
Also, if you can’t be bothered with this, just bring up the walks or the book around the water cooler. Word-of-mouth is just as, if not more so, effective.
Thanks again everyone, you’ve been making this project a big success!
