It may seem odd on paper or even when you first hear it, but you want to make the most of your spot. If you are creating a spot for an event, keep the branding going but be sure it’s clear when your event is and what the big offer is. Mentioning your phone number is important, especially if it’s a memorable one, but people will look up your number or simply come to your location anyway.
