I can do this. I once promoted a dinner party that got 15 people. So, I just need to do that again, times 100.

I suddenly find myself in a position where I am trying to promote an event to get thousands of participants. But I have never promoted an event before, and I have no budget! Help me get some ideas on how to get the word out. [more inside]

Interview driving traffic to a website?

I have a two part question. I've just interviewed well known performer who has just released his first solo CD. He owns all of the rights to the lyrics and music, and his own company published the CD. A radio station I'm associated with plans to put the interview online, as well as broadcast it within the week. If the musician is OK with me putting it on my own website, how might it drive traffic to his site and my site? And is there anything extra I can to make it attract listeners and drive that traffic?

How can I attract clients when I am just starting out in professional dog training?

I am currently finishing up a program to become a certified dog trainer, and will soon be thrown out into the world to do what I will. I am not assuming that this will be a full time gig to begin with, and figured that I would do classes or private lessons on the side for a while. How can I do a successful job of marketing myself for these kinds of things? I have a couple of specific questions. [more inside]

You scratch my back, I... hate everything you stand for?

You have a business. One of your customers has a business. He wants to cross-promote, co-produce events, etc. He subscribes to the "there's a sucker born every minute" business model, charging way too much for crap. He could bring you lots of new customers, but you don't want to give him any more "marks." How do you proceed? Or do you?

Are there craft blog events?

I have a blog that used to have some readership. I think I got people interested mostly by participating in food blog events (where someone hosts on their blog, names a theme, and then everyone makes something, blogs about it, and gets a link in the event post. There are so many of these that there are even blogs that aggregate all the food blog events). Then I had to move my blog and lost most of my visitors. Also I now post a lot more art/craft content than food. I assumed there would be similar things for my new topics, but I just can't find them. Do you know of any recurring art/craft blog events with open participation, or any websites that catalog such things?
