Happy Friday and a warm welcome back to the blog. I hope you found yesterdays ideas on Social Media bookings useful and I have much more to say on the subject so stay tuned for future updates on attracting more business via social media!

Today we are going to look at a different kind of situation altogether and that is the need to create the wow factor at your event. I have said on this very blog time and time again that perhaps the biggest challenge you face as a trivia host is the competition of other rivals and the fact that there are many many trivia hosts but not as many venues to have everyone working as much as they would like. So to ensure that you are not the one to miss out and that you are the one who gets all the bookings what you need to do is make sure your night stands out and what you are aiming for is that “Wow” factor.

Why create the wow factor?

At the end of the day, the presentation of the quiz is all important. If you are using little scraps of paper, tired old pens, torn answer sheets and a dodgy microphone then it doesn’t say a great deal about you! You need something that’s inviting, exciting and makes people want to play. It will help impress the managers of the venue, help get you bookings and make your customers come back.

Plus, if you are thinking of ways to attract new players, then people who maybe enjoy the fun element more than the content of the trivia being asked will be much more drawn towards something with flashy lights and banners. It also makes people aware from outside that the bar is hosting trivia and makes for great youtube videos and social media pictures.

What to use?

Banners are always useful or some sort of stand to have your details on. Maybe your name, company name “John Smith – Smiths Pub Quiz” and some contact details will do. Don’t overload it, keep it simple, invest wisely and get something that looks professional. You can buy cheap items like this from Ebay but you will only end up buying them again in the long run so find out a professional company and get something useful.

I always also find TV displays good to use. If the bar has a lot of screens ask to have your logo displayed, powerpoints, you can play clips for question, you can have the picture round displayed there for extra viewing…all manner of things. Make use of everything that’s available and if the TV;s are already there this is not going to cost you a thing!
