This guide provides useful resources and signposting for carrying out effective tour marketing in collaboration with venues. You’ll find a checklist of tips – such as sharing the effort between the touring company and the venue – along with online links to other guides such as how to develop a marketing plan when your work is on tour.
Always have your copy read by someone not expert in marketing or your artform - think about the messages that will appeal to non-artform specific audiences or first time attenders
- Use social media intelligently – it’s about building relationships
- Evaluate experiences between companies and venues
