The third and fourth stages are based on finding the most accessible location for the attendees and then starting a chain of the events to increase the sale of the tickets.
Stage 3 | The stage is based on a search to find out the most accessible location for the audience that can also help us in tickets sale.
Cost: 5000PKR (under $50): since we went applied through the university students, and were given the discount.
Date: December 16 & 17, 2014: (last month of the year always bring more audience)
Method: We selected a hall with 300 capacity that was located in the heart of the city, University of Peshawar Pakistan. Two volunteers were hired from the academia through an interview process. These volunteers along with one of the organization members were assigned the task to use their resources to book the hall with the best price. In return, the organization will provide them free tickets along with mic endorsement.
Result: Thought the university hardly allowed outside organizations, but the above strategy helped us to confirm the venue for our event.
Goal: To sell out more than 90% tickets of the event, and create hype by getting the news channels attention. (Picture: University of Peshawar, Pakistan)
