11 February 2010 No Comment


We want everyone in the Fort Wayne tri-state area to know about our fantastic show and we’re pulling out all the stops to make that happen. We promised you we’d spend at least $50,000 on advertising. We are actually spending over $60,000. And here’s what we – and all our exhibitors – are getting for that money.


–   Ads on FOX-55, WANE (CBS affiliate), WISE (ABC affiliate), WPTA (NBC affiliate) and Comcast/Viacom Cable Network (124,000 households).

–    More than 500 thirty-second commercials and more than 50 ten-second promotional spots in the two weeks leading up to the show

–     TV sponsor FOX will feature OLSCS on their website for 30 days, make us a sponsor of their Scavenger Hunt, give away 200 tickets, email 9,000 opt-in subscribers about the show and host the show’s welcome booth.
