Restaurant entertainers must be aware of activities occurring at the restaurant. Owners are always looking to promote their business and can quickly overlook entertainment especially if the event is off-site. Aggressive restaurant owners will schedule promotional events at malls or business expos to market their restaurant. Entertainers can use these opportunities to help the restaurant draw attention to its booth and be able to promote their business while at the event. These off-site restaurant events provide opportunities for entertainers to garner public exposure and to pass out business cards.
Expanding management’s interpretation of your entertainment potential can only come from the entertainer. By participating at an off-site event, the entertainer will draw crowds and their knowledge of the restaurant, along with their people skills, can greatly benefit the restaurant marketing.
Restaurants participate in seasonal events from local business expos, community carnivals, holiday gift certificate drives to promotions in malls to name a few. So, talk with the restaurant owner, let them know you are available to work all events, not just kids night. Expand management’s perception of entertainment and show them the possibilities of using the restaurant entertainer at other events.
