To re-brand and enhance the Jefferson Street Jazz and Blues Festival in its 16th year; also allowing the organization to compete in a crowded music market.


We developed a comprehensive marketing and public relations campaign that included:

- designing of all graphics including a save the date, tickets, posters, social media images

- strategy and implementation of social media

- manage marketing initiatives including email marketing strategies and strategic marketing partners

- manage owned and earned media including traditional and blogger/influencer placements

- develop strategies for greater ticket sales including the launch of bundled weekend ticket and weekend successful negotiation of Groupon

- weekly reporting including google analytics, social media reporting, and email marketing campaign analytics


Tickets sold out twice before the weekend, doubling attendance from year's past. The weekend ticket sales were estimated to have resulted in $119,000+ for the nonprofit.
