CATCHING CLIENTS ON THE FLY - #TXFlyFishingFestival

Towards the end of 2016 we formed a wish list of upcoming events that are local, family-friendly, and of course, incredibly fun to experience.  Next, the introductions were sent via email to contacts with simple requests to merely start a conversation about their on-site coverage. Two weeks later, proposals have been sent, reviewed, and one approved by a new client!  

The League Lady is thrilled to announce that we are honored to provide the digital marketing, advertising, and on-site coverage for the 1st Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival.  Executive Director, Beau Beasley manages the Virginia Fly Fishing & Wine Festival that is now celebrating 17 years and an iconic event within the industry. Texas has been on Beau's wish list for awhile and after vetting the metroplex he selected the Plano Centre as an ideal venue for the first year.  

Mark Thompson, Director of Visit Plano, told MidCurrent writer Erin Block, "This unique event is a first for Plano and should attract attendees from all over the region. We look forward to helping Beau and his team make this another signature event for Plano." The full article "Inaugural Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival" was published in June 2016, officially announcing the event.
This month Louisiana Sportsman published their annual "Best of 2016" list including: "Notable Events coming up this Spring: March 11-12 - the first ever Texas Fly Fishing and Micro Brew Festival at the Plano Centre in Plano, Texas. It's already generating a ton of interest on social media." 

It's true, we've been busy and super excited to reveal the new social sites for #TXFlyFishingFestival to follow, tag, like, and share content: 




Coming up will be a newly developed #TXFlyFishingFestival YouTube channel to showcase the many pro-angler speakers slated to present during the festival weekend. This will include live-streaming folks paddling around in a kayak in the water inside the Plano Centre. Fly fishing and kayaks are like peanut butter and jelly in Texas.  The Lone Star State is blessed with over 70 parks offering fresh or saltwater that include more than 150 lakes - a fisherman's paradise awaits.

Simple Booth Shines at Downtown Plano Art & Wine Walk

There were 18 wine samplings on the route at the Downtown Plano Art & Wine Walk held Thursday, September 14, 2017. And while The League Lady did not partake in the liquid tastings because we have three events in the next three weeks, it was an interesting event to attend for the first time. As a marketing agency, we think that Simple Booth outshined the 80's band, tasting notes, and shop discounts. In fact, hundreds of people took pause to stand in front of the nearly blinding HALO light that also happens to create a glowing complexion for all posers. 
In doing a bit of research we discovered that Simple Booth is a pretty cool concept for small events. We've already downloaded the app and requested information on how to acquire the whole set-up. It appears to require a tripod, attachment for the iPad, lighting, and the optional on-site printer. As with all technology we always purchase extra batteries for wireless devices. They recommend a professional backdrop but most o…

"DxO ONE Camera Cuts Social Sharing Time for Photography & Video"

Time is more than a measure of events when we as storytellers attempt to archive sequential moments through photography. It takes time to plan the album in advance.  Time spent making sure that we are standing in the exact spot to capture the sunrise before it shines, the hot air balloons as they glow under the stars, and the adrenaline smirks of a rock band when they walk off stage.  

The real challenge of time is the delay between capturing and sharing those photographs.  My Nikon D3100 originates more than a thousand photos in 48 hours at the InTouch Credit Union Plano Balloon Festival. On-site coverage requires timely delivery which means I have to pause to download, edit, and post pictures to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google Plus. 

Last September I read an article in The Wall Street Journal titled "DXO ONE Review:  Finally, an iPhone Camera Good Enough For a Pro."  I immediately thought of the hefty Nikon that becomes an extension of my hand during client events.�…
