Marketing Your Event

When marketing your event, you should consider a number of different advertising outlets including local newspapers and listings, radio stations, posters and social media.

Newspapers:

Revelstoke Mountaineer – offer advertisements and advertorial opportunities.

Revelstoke Review – purchase an ad in the weekly printed paper and online. Consider buying in bulk to save money.

Both newspapers have free ‘What’s On’ listings, just be sure to get them the details of your event a couple of weeks ahead of when it is happening.

Radio:

EZ Rock (Astral radio) – It is very effective to do a week of ads with 4 or 5 a day right before your event. Consider going on their morning show to help promote your event.

Stoke FM – Revelstoke’s local radio station offers reasonable rates for advertising packages. Consider going on their morning show to help promote your event.

Stoke FM also send out info bulletins about what is happening in the community, again be sure to get them your event info well ahead of time.

Posters:

Posters – you can have posters in town from Lakeside Printing. We suggest you print size: 8.5” x 11” (standard letter size) so that they can easily be put up on the notice boards around town.
