club promoter

I know to be a promoter for a club, you sorta need to be decent outgoing and know alot of people in order to get the job.

In the scene, they may appear to be pretty ballin but at the end of day are they broker than you and i?? most of the money goes to the club owner?

Maybe on some basic subjects as only a handful of people visit that thread or periodically.

But, for something more specific I still feel making a new thread is acceptable.

Never give your facebook name to the doorman. I had it a couple times in Europe where the promoters hand out flyers where if you like them on facebook you get free entrance, which you do, but its not worth the trade-off of all the spam e-mails and facebook posts until you finally unlike them.

every club i ever worked in the "promoters" were just the bartenders and girls with big tits who handed out GC's and got people inside

i'd say being an actual "promoter" as a profession is a pretty lowly job lol..

I was one for 7 months. We ran the nights entirely. Everything from advertising to booking the DJs, to providing and setting up the gear and manning the front door.

The club wasn't popular and the owner wasn't any help. We lost money overall. Long term, we started turning the place around and it's a lot better than it used to be. Good learning experience.

I did it on top of my dayjob, sort of a hobby. Started co-hosting a radio show after that, met the host promoting the club nights.

PS: You can block invites from anyone on Facebook when you decline the event.

i like how every few months someone makes a thread like this on RS asking about a sales job and if you can make a quick buck. Do car salesmen get lotsa cash? Can i get lotsa money selling cell phones?

The answer is ALWAYS the same - a sales job is a sales job no matter what you're selling. If you're good and work your ass off, you get tons of money. If you suck and are lazy you get canned. Most people are the latter, some people are the former. Stop asking the same damn question - it's not a get rich quick sceheme, it's sales!

LOL not a good job. You get 3-5$ profit per ticket and have to meet people at the spots they want. Remember that gas costs money too. Really a waste of time.. Might as well get a job unless being a promoter is something you do on the side

I have been in promotions for a while now, and I can tell you that my company makes just a bit more than $3-5 per ticket. Depending on the structure of the business model you choose to use, being a "promoter" can be a pretty profitable career. I am not saying that this is my career, I am into building and development, but I am saying it has provided me with a fairly stable way to pay bills and to meet a lot of great people. "Promoting" has been a way for me to obtain a degree in marketing, my real estate license, several investments and much more.

The lifestyle is not for everyone, and yes I hate being called a "promoter", but there are definite perks and plenty of experiences that I wouldn't trade for anything. I also think that people throw around the term "promoter" too quickly to make themselves feel more important in the given scenario they are in. People that sell tickets in my eyes would be "ticket sellers" and people who hand out flyers or tickets would be "flyer girls/guys".

Sorry if I sound whiny, but I am around this daily and it is a relevant theme to me.

In addition there is a stereotype around "promoters" which carries a negative connotation to slimy, greasy, shady, low life people. In my opinion there are two types of "promoters": the ones who are only in it for the money, and the ones who strive to offer a superior product (something different, worthwhile, desirable, etc) for the consumer.

The number one goal of my company is to ensure the happiness of people at my events, and when I see something I don't like I attend to the matter and fix it. I believe I am at the same level as my guests and I treat them with the respect that I wish to be treated with. There clearly are the "promoters" who believe they are above everyone, but in my experience they do not last very long.
