So you've figured out all the details of your church retreat… Theme Speakers Location
So your job is done, right? Not so fast!
Now it's time to promote your retreat to ensure you achieve the attendance and participation you are hoping for.
Promote from Within Of course, you want to start promoting your event as early as possible in order to reach the most people. It's best to start promoting as far out as 4 - 6 months ahead of your event date
Great idea to create a special page on your church website. Be sure to include the following information Theme Speakers Location Dates Pricing Scheduled events
Irresistible Incentives Not everyone can afford a large, one-time payment for your church retreat. Also, not every adult is as comfortable investing "family money" on themselves
For those slow to invest money up front in a retreat, consider offering a monthly payment plan option
Draw a Picture, maybe literally Create a visual picture for potential attendees. With the use of brochures, slides, and photos from previous retreats
Be sure to show how needs will be met during the retreat, include attendees of all ages, as well as, retreat veterans and first-timers
