02 Sep Promoting Your Bar Using Beer Buckets During the Slow Season
Now that the summer season is winding down and tourist season is over, many bars see a big decline in patrons. Traveling slows down with school in session, which means less vacationers filling your bar and buying drinks. So, how do you attract new customers? It's time to switch gears and target your locals and here's a great way to do it.
Bars can attract locals with great music, fun events, and drink specials. Vacationers may not even blink an eye at paying $8-$10 for a drink while visiting your bar; however, locals won't do it. So, offering reasonably priced drink specials is certainly a great way to attract a bigger local crowd.
One very successful promotion for bars to offer is to sell buckets of beer and offer a better deal when 5 or 6 beers are bought at time. After that sale, you bring out the beer bucket that is iced with the beers inside. By offering this choice, you will attract more local patrons and increase your beer sales.
But you don't have to stop there. If your establishment sells wine, why not offer a bottle of wine iced in a bucket? By offering this additional service, you will also promote to the ladies who want to have wine rather than beer.
