Running Advertisements at facility..

In my conversation with a couple local business owners (Non Paintball), a question came up as to how much I would charge for businesses to put up banners at the facility, on the fields and in the parking area.

I never really gave it much thought.
Do you guys have any set price for this on your fields?

I know it has been discussed before, but I don't recall much of the conversations. (did you search?)

The biggest thing would be setup and planned exposure. If you don't plan on having an "arena" with a good amount of events I would look at another way to advertise with them. Depending on how many different filed you have you could name them like a stadium is?? Like "Bob's Transmission house field", "The Outback Steakhouse woodsball field", or "The Hooters Mounds field" .

If you are expecting large numbers of people and have an arena, maybe look at how much local sports groups charge to hang banners, then compare exposure numbers. Keep in mind most of that marketing is aimed at the spectators, not the participants, that might matter to a potential company.

See, that's just good marketing.

Don't forget taking the opportunity to invite the fields namesake out for a little trial run/charity event.

I'm wondering if it would be more advantageous to work out a cross marketing agreement, to where they promote their name sake field at their business. Swap banners, or putting fliers at their register. Might bring in more revenue than the actual ad revenue could.

There you go coming up with a better idea again! I like it.

Thanks Larry.

O.P.,

The only field I am aware of who actually did this was Challenge Park in Joliet, Illinois back when Forrest Brown was running it. They had local business (banks, etc.) signs attached to the various pavillions in their staging area.

I don't know how much they charged for these.

It must have been a while since you have been to my field. Hooters Mounds are more like Chia Pet Mounds now. Maybe I can get them to advertise with me? Oh by the way my metal posts for my netting work great. Let me know if you need my contact.

Hey Cliff!
Yeah.. really enjoyed playing at your field. How is it going?
I do apologize for using your picture, but when they were talking about mounds, I remembered the mounds of doom at APP..
