With the help of social networks like Facebook, Myspace, and A Small World, it has become easy to start promoting nightclubs/lounges. In the past you used to have to know people to promote, but now with friend requesting gone wild, promoters of all ages seem to be popping up all over the place – which brings us to our question: How old is too old to promote?
We often see promoters in their late 20s or early 30s STILL PROMOTING. This is only understandable if you’re trying to own your own place in the near future – but we think unacceptable if you’re:
1) Bringing out a crowd that is 8-10 years younger than you.
2) Not running your own “Marketing/PR Company” of some sort.
3) Bringing out an undesirable crowd to New York’s B and C Parties.
4) Called a creep behind your back by the girls you bring out.
5) Salary comes solely from promoting.
We understand nightlife is addicting – there are many opportunities for anybody who really wants to make something out of themselves by having your contact list grow daily. We’ve seen the nightlife industry help those involved in: music, fashion, art, drug-trade, etc – but we’d like to see some promoters leave the game and do something beneficial for society possibly. Sure, showing people a good time when they go out is great and all, but how about a charity event? We haven’t seen any older promoters (who aren’t club owners) throw any parties or events for a charity or cause of their choice. Wouldn’t you think some of the “top promoters” in Manhattan would step up and throw one – even if the reason behind it was to improve their own image over the actual cause? Just something to think about.
Wow, an actual article from A.M. Lifestyle; who would have thunk it?
