Hi, my name is Richard Buccola of Starlite
Karaoke here in New York City and on behalf of Expert Village, today we’re going to show
you how to start and run a successful karaoke business. I’m going to talk about advertising.
In advertising you’ll be surprised a little thing like this, these are the sheets that
I use to handout for people to write their name on for them to come up and sing and for
their song title. But you’ll notice here on the bottom here I have your email. That had
to be one of the biggest things that I’ve done 7 years ago, because now 7 years later
I have over 3,000 emails of people right here in the neighborhood. I utilize the web by
having my website of course, but what was great there were websites like cafepress.com,
which let me put up all of these things that I could sell as far as merchandise like my
shirts and hats, coffee mugs and they did all the work. For all these website that I’m
talking about I will put something in my bio that you can have a late to so you can go
and check them out. I recommend reading as much as you can and that was one of the main
things I did, I started typing in karaoke in the computer and I started doing everything
else that everyone was doing.
