Since 2003, Eight Marketing has had the privilege of providing marketing services to the attractions and tourism community. Now, in honor of its 8th anniversary, Eight Marketing will be awarding eight non-profit organizations eight hours of complimentary service. It is only fitting that this opportunity would launch on August 8.
Our Services. One organization will be selected for each of eight marketing services: attractions marketing, brand positioning, new markets development, partnerships and promotions, public relations and media relations, social media, sponsorship development and strategic planning.
To Apply. Applicants will be asked to complete a straight-forward two page application, focused on the impact of the organization and the project, and the impact an eight hour day of marketing services can make. Suggested projects and guidelines and regulations are also available. All submissions must be received by September 8, 2011 for consideration.
Selection Critieria. Applications will be reviewed by a team of Eight Marketing staff and industry professionals including Tom Kaiden, President of Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance; and Patricia Washington, Vice President of Tourism for Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation. Submissions will be judged on eligibility and on the ability of Eight Marketing to make a significant impact in the allotted eight hours.
Our Promise. Eight Marketing is undertaking this project as a way of thanking the communities we serve. For this reason, we will not take on projects through this program that would require an organization to purchase additional services, nor will we be soliciting business from organizations submitting proposals.
Our Goal. Our goal is simple - we want to make a difference for non-profit organizations that make a difference. It's our way of giving back and saying thank you for eight wonderful years.
