Welcome to WellAttended. For the past six years, I have been a professional mentalist and have produced countless events including meetups, fundraisers, and theater shows. My current show, An Enchanted Evening – Mind Reading and Mystery, runs once a month throughout Oklahoma.
As you know, producing events (fundraisers, classes, shows, etc.) takes time, work, and dedication. Our goal is to help you make the process as simple and straightforward as possible. In the past six years, I have used numerous techniques and strategies to promote and sell out performances. I learned the best ways to promote not only by trial and error but also from working with other theater, comedy, and improv producers. As a self-producer and self-marketer, I have learned how to get great results from my efforts.
