Okay, so it’s not the most romantic experience in the world and the odds of you finding your soulmate are slim. But with the right setting and the right volunteers, a kissing booth can attract a lot of attention to your cause!
Where to Set up a Kissing Booth
A kissing booth works well in fairgrounds, carnivals, large parties, or in schools as part of a fundraising drive. The kissing booth is perfect for these settings as they are already filled with your target audience: large groups of fun-seeking friends ready to spend their money!
Tips for Setting up a Kissing Booth
Here are some tips to help you make the most of your kissing booth:
- Pick the right venue. As mentioned above, the venue for your kissing booth is very important. You want somewhere with a great atmosphere, a lot of foot traffic and people ready to hand over their hard-earned cash.
- Pick the right people. Know your target audience. A kissing booth usually attracts a younger clientele who don’t necessarily want to be locking lips with their grandmother! Try getting some local celebrities involved: radio DJs, news anchors, athletes from local sports teams, the high school football team, and anyone else you can think of that will make the people of your town want to lather on the lip balm!
- Advertise. For maximum profit you need maximum impact. Put posters up around your town, school and work place. If you can get local celebrities involved then also get them to mention the kissing booth on their radio show or news spot, and ask your local newspaper to place an advertisement too. Most importantly, make sure your signs are informative and clear. They need to show when and where the kissing booth will be and who the public can look forward to locking lips with!
- Sponsorship. It’s always a great idea to get local businesses involved in charity events. Think of businesses that would be useful to your specific event. For example, talk to businesses such as local pharmacies, who could promote their brand of lip balm in return for a donation to your charity.
