The 10×10 plan for marketing options for your club! Your club’s marketing and PR programs are important for the health and success of your club. The more people hear about your club and your activities, the more they will be interested in participating with, or joining your club. A marketing plan for a club doesn’t just lump all the marketing and PR efforts into 1 single program, like a website. Instead, take a look at the following options and choose 10 of them. Each part constitutes 10% of your total marketing effort. But, don’t panic!! Start small and build up. Out of your ten choices, pick 2 to start with and add a few new marketing options each year until your club has a well-rounded program over a couple of years.
New Club Building. Are you the only club in town? No club can be “everything” to its’ membership. Sometimes projects or programs (like new Key Clubs) come along that might call for a new club. This is a GREAT way to get local publicity, plus you have a partner Kiwanis club to participate in your big events. Your district has a huge New Club building team chaired by Past Governor Susan Hennum. If you would like to know more about building a new club in your area, send her a note at Susan.Hennum@hotmail.com
