I am working on this years marketing program for my haunt and I'm lookoing for some help or advise. Last year me and my business partner worked the last month prior to opening to ensure the haunt was ready to go and ensure the best possible show was provided. The area I feel we neglected was advertising / marketing as we were so busy doing the things we enjoy we did the bare necessities on advertisement and it showed. Previous years in the past we had better attendance but also had more help with marketing. My question to everyone is have you ever hired a marketing / advertisment person just for the halloween season and if so what would I expect to pay. I have also thought of hiring someone and pay a commission based upon attendance or a pay-per-person. Anyone done any of this?
