Episode Info

Episode Info: INTRO     Do you go on cafe or bar crawls? This fall in Madison, Wisonsin I got to do the CaffeineCrawl.com event, big event with a lot of logistics and moving parts. Lots to organize, great exposure for local cafes and super fun for the local community. For me as an attendee it was a great chance to see the whole local scene at one time, stopping into shops that I haven’t been into before.     This episode can be thought of as an extension of the Yelp (episode 54) podcast we did, making a special event and getting people out to see you. TIME 2:55 : Local coverage…     Sadie from CaffeineCrawl.com took to getting local coverage for JBCCoffeeRoasters.com and all other cafes, reaching out to all media know about. It was important to have a killer after party to end the whole day off on a great note as a whole group of coffee crawlers, all were invited. TIME 3:35 : Levi’s comments…     If you’re going to setup an event you may not be able to get TV coverage, but what about at least setting the event up on Facebook/Yelp/CouchSurfing/MeetUp/Twitter #YourTown/other sites like local paper? This is SO IMPORTANT.     Think of the next thing, what is the next event you want to promote? The Crawl had a TNT, then after the TNT a local bar to grab drinks? Make sure to leave off with a “Thank you for visiting our cafe and don’t forget about our next event…” TIME 4:45 : Cafe-Collaboration…     When planning make your first goal to have shops shine in the way they feel comfortable and proud of and is unique to them. Make sure that the samples being served are totally delicious and wonderful, also test to make sure the team can make multiple samples back-to-back-to-back. TIME 6:00 : Levi’s comments…     Work ON your business not just IN your business.     As Sadie talks to cafes she learns about different roasters who want to have a small pop-up because they don’t have a local retail location. Like JBC, hosting a party because they don’t have retail space at this time, it was perfect for them to open the roastery and welcome people in.     Serve a drink you’re proud of and make sure the other spots aren’t serving that drink as well. TIME 7:10 : Putting together routes...     Pair businesses that work together well, could be a few surprises along the way, especially little snacks to eat.Read more »
