They will be good for non-strategic jobs at your event.
Money handlers for the vendors,you must have a tried and true,personally vetted, paid staff that will show up on time,and ready to work.
Extra money can be made at a volleyball tournament with t-shirts,snacks,and recruiting service that can provide information for college bound student athletes.The vendors can either pay you for being a vendor at your event or they create and supply the merchandise to sell,and pay you a percentage of sales at the end of the tournament.
How do you get people to buy tickets and come to your event? You promote the happening by talking about your upcoming event on the radio and TV. It's not hard to get interviewed on stations listened to by your target audience.You give away tickets to the event,you drop names mentioning that college scouts will be their looking for talented student-athletes.Talk up the tournament at other events and this will help you sell tickets.
When you go on an interview program you will announce that the official list price of the tournament is $175 but the first 50 listeners who send in just $25 each for their tickets get in at a $35 discount. Then regardless of how many call, they all get $25 entry fee! You name and address of all ticket buyers so they become your customer list in the future events.
Contact every radio and TV station in town, especially call-in and talk radio shows, and have the stations give away free tickets to every seventh caller, every hour on the hour for your event. This works like crazy.The hollischapmanshow promotions does this very successfully,and through these give-away ticket promotions received Free publicity worth for more than the retail value of the tickets.
