Hints for Appearances
you are planning an event at your church or center, the following
ideas are provided to help promote attendance and bring new
people into the organziation for the lecture and/or workshops.
books on hand well before Patrick’s appearance. Have
at least 5 on display. Create a display so that the books
stand out and people can connect the book with the upcoming
Have a point person at the center/church that is familiar
with Patrick and the workshop who can answer questions and
enthusiastically talk up the workshop.
Tie in the appearance with the intention and announcement
of offering a class based on The Magic of the Soul.
Include information in weekly email announcements leading
up to the appearance.
flyers (congregants and board members can get involved in
this too) on bulletin boards and in local businesses—doctor’s
offices, dentists, beauty salons etc. Half page or smaller
versions of the flyer work especially well for this purpose.
local radio stations to have Patrick on as a talk show guest
using the same pitch listed above for TV spots. This is
especially effective with stations with more liberal programming.
Public supported broadcasting stations are often very open
to Patrick’s message and have listeners who will be
drawn to the event. If you don’t have staffing for
this purpose, propose a list of news shows, radio interview
shows, and radio stations with liberal programming, and submit it to us, and our staff will make the contacts.
- Contact local TV news shows (or submit list to us) to have Patrick (if he will be in town early enough for this) on a news segment.
Many news shows will do a 2 to 5 minute spot.
tickets to listeners or viewers as part of Patrick’s
media events as well as to other local fundraising efforts.
- Create a press release and send it to local papers.
Contact local holistic publications to do an interview with
Patrick or run and article by him.
Attach the press release to an email to congregants.
Offer a pair of tickets as a raffle prize or silent auction
item at local fundraisers for other organizations or charities.
