FlipPhone Drag Brunches have become a big hit in Minneapolis. Tickets sell out as soon as they go on sale, attendees have a blast, performers make good money, and it all raises money for local non-profits. It’s a win-win-win for everyone! And it’s all coordinated by the owner of FlipPhone Events, Chad Kampe. He is the mastermind behind the drag brunches and the numerous other shows and parties throughout the year. In this episode we sit down with Chad and talk about what it’s like to manage the marketing, social media, event production, and even host some of the events. He really does it all – from Facebook event promotion to video marketing to influencer marketing, and he talks to us about what he’s done to succeed with all these events.

Netflix and Hulu both recently released documentaries on the same subject: Fyre Festival and its creator, Billy McFarland. They each tell the story differently and are fascinating to watch. Fyre Festival was marketed so well with video and flashy photos along with big-name social media influencers and models like Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski and more. People bought tickets to this one-of-a-kind music festival and expected to have the time of their lives. But in the end the whole thing fell apart and was a big, public flop.

In this episode we talk about the marketing of Fyre Festival and how they were able to make the marketing a success and build such a buzz around the event. We also discuss what went wrong and try to take a few lessons away on community management and influencer marketing.
