I didn't start this post to stir up a political can of worms, so in an effort to bring it back on point, I think Randy is really the only one who answered some of the orginal questions. Not to discount the discussion, which has been interesting, but perhaps a new topic "Haunters Political Views", that one should get some action!
So here are the original questions again.
"So, the reason for this post is to propose three questions that may give haunters some assistance as they plan for 2008.
First, what impact do you think the economy will have on attendance this year?
Second, what are you planning to do with your advertising this year, in light of the political environment? Advertise more? less? the same? differently?
And, last, how has your attendance typically been in a general election year?"
Randy, thanks for the feedback, I agree with you on securing your advertising well in advance this year. How has your attendance typically been in an election year, have you noticed any trends?
