Mistakes Prom Planners Make: #6 It’s a Recession, After All!

Stop right there! Did you know that many products we have today that your kids are buying in droves were developed during the recession? It isn’t the recession it is the perceived value. Unless you get in line with Beats by Dre, iPhone 5+, or Jordan you are getting beat to the punch of funds your students have. Yes you will have to work hard to build the momentum for your event over a few years of dances but blaming the economy isn’t the reason you aren’t selling every ticket. Something is wrong in your approach. Get with your student committee and find out how to reach the students and get on it. The life of their prom depends on it. Read more of Firefly’s Blog to help give your ideas that will help you. If you would like a copy of our helpful pamphlet “Elements of the High School Dance” we can send you the eBook version upon your request.
