All requests should be submitted 30-days prior to the start of promotion (i.e. the date you want to begin spreading the word about your event). If your event requires registration, then please submit your request 30-days before registration begins. There is an automatic downgrade for requests that fall outside of designated time frame.
Quick tip: If you don’t have all your event details as needed, feel free to peruse the form to know what information your team needs to gather before submitting your request. (If you don’t have full details we cannot fulfill your request, i.e. a heads up, TBAs are not details. We can’t make assignments to team members or to outsourcers without the details. If we are outsourcing your project, we are charged when there’s more than one revision to the content we submit to them.)
Your campaign will fall within one of the three levels (HIGH, MEDIUM, OR LOW). Each group shows available promotional items you can choose from. Your campaign may not require all items, so please select the items that best fit your needs, and a team member will work with you to confirm your selection. (The Promotional items are the typically suggested methods; however, we can help you determine the best course of action for your Marketing & Media needs.)
NOTE: Promotional levels apply to events and initiatives--NOT adult, students, and children's sermon support elements. Those elements are worked out during sermon creative collaboration meetings.
