Class Marketing FAQ

What does Hugo House do to promote classes?

As a baseline, Hugo House promotes its classes through the following platforms:

  • Printed quarterly class listings mailed to ~4,500 households
  • Printed quarterly brochure and flyers at local businesses (such as Elliott Bay Book Company)
  • Digital catalog on the Hugo House website
  • Email marketing to an audience of ~28,000
  • Advertisements (print and digital)
  • Social media promotion for the overall quarter
  • Sharing of instructor’s social media posts (Tag us in your posts!)

Can I design my own marketing materials for my class?

We encourage instructors to utilize the templates we’ve provided, but we understand that they may not fit your purposes perfectly. Please feel free to design your own marketing materials with the following in mind:

  • Include the Hugo House logo somewhere in your marketing materials.
  • Incorporating Hugo House branding (colors and fonts) is strongly encouraged.
  • On your promotional materials, be sure to include necessary information that will be helpful for your audience to decide to engage. It’s important to answer the questions Who?, What?, When?, Where?, Why?, How?, and, sometimes, How Much?
  • Consider the context in which your promotional materials will be seen and how that affects what information you need to provide on your materials. For example, if you’re posting on your social media accounts in which you typically promote your writing work, your audience will likely understand that you’re promoting a writing class. A flyer in a coffee shop will reach an audience without the same context clues, so you might consider adding more information to that flyer.
