Marketing Director

J.A.B. Promotions

Our company was typically hired on contract by entertainment venues, earning an agreed fee. We structured  a simple percentage of the door and/or food and drink sales.  We allowed for various expenses, or limitations (e.g. only drink sales after midnight).

We also operated independently by renting venues for a fixed fee or under a revenue sharing arrangement with the building owner or tenant, and keeping all of the additional profits from a successful event.  Occasionally we worked with several promoters  for a large special event, e.g. a New Year's Eve party in a hotel ballroom. We would have "hosts", who essentially would market the events to their circle of friends in exchange for special treatment or free admission to the event. 

We managed the  publicity and advertising. Depending on the arrangement we would also handle security, ticket sales, door policies, decorations, and booking of entertainers.
