B.D.A. and audience development

I’m starting a new series called Monday Minute.  These will be short entries based on quick thoughts.

Today I want to talk to  you about B.D.A. What is B.D.A.?  I go into more detail in my new eBook, but basically it is the complete experience you give to your audiences Before, During, and After your event/offering.

You want the entire experience to be memorable in a good way.  If the B is lacking due to terrible marketing or customer service, if the D is is flat and people have a hard time connecting with the art due to lack of creativity, quality or care, if  the A is non-existent and you do not follow up after to thank your audiences and/or offer them a thank you “gift,” you will not be giving your audiences your best.

So, are you offering B.D.A.?

Cheers to happy and loyal audiences,
