Actually Marketing and Promoting begins.
We started off early buying coffee from Starbucks and then driving all the way to the KOA in Salt Lake City, Utah. Since this was our first RV trip, we had a lot to learn. Last night we turned on the generator – only having it shut down after 15 minutes. Today, we were determined to hook up the RV correctly so that we had electricity, heat, and water. Arriving at the KOA, we asked for the maintenace dude to give us a RV-hook-up 101. We had a brief black water incident (see video) – black water means shit water for those who were not familiar with the term. We showered, organized our things, and then headed off to the Utah-California football game.
We were unclear how to approach promoting Eventsfy at a college football game, but we had some thought in mind – beer pong, keg stands, tequila shots, labels out, etc. We arrived at Rice Eccles Stadium at 6pm, an hour and a half before the game. We immediately went to the least obvious place to go – the tailgating parking lot… OK, maybe it was the obvious place to go.
Turing into the tailgating parking lot, we were met by two parking attendants who denied us access. We pushed our luck a bit more but was still denied. On we went to find alternatives….
We began driving around the stadium attracting attention to our moving billboard – the RV. When I say attracting attention, I mean honking the horn multiple times. We were determined to drive up to the front of the stadium and then to park there – kinda thinking that this wouldn’t be possible. So after finally driving to the front of the stadium with thousands of people walking to the game, we were quite surprised that there was an area to park right in the front. We were a little apprehensive at first to just park in the front of a “no parking” area…but we did it anyway.
We were able to park and advertise Eventsfy for about a half hour in the front of the stadium handing out flyers to the masses – see video. All-in-all, after an initially difficulty marketing day, it turned out to be a pretty good one.
We ended the night at Red Iguana Mexican restaurant. A MUST GO if you ever visit Salt Lake City.
