During the last three months I've contacted every University in the United States and personally talked to their Activities Director. I compiled a detailed list of everyone's general contact information (over 1,500 Universities) and now I want to publish this information for others to use as a stepping stone (similar to the Hollywood Creative Directories). With that said, I'm trying to get a general idea on 1) how much to charge for this information to make it profitable for my time spent & 2) how many people would be interested in list like this?

Also, I'm working on a list for comedy clubs, Casinos (with Talent Booker's contact information), Country Clubs, Resorts, Fortune 500 companies, and other organizations that budget for yearly entertainment junctures. Please let me know which list(s) you would be interested in.

Have a Great Day!!

A membership to NACA or APCA gets you this information and keeps it updated.

Without the updated part, your list is only valid for a short time. The turnover in campus activities offices is fairly high.

You can buy the NACA list, ask them how much they charge.

Last year there was a guy on Chucklemonkey.com that sold a list with 200 emails for

"for comedy bookers, comedy club owners, TV show bookers, room runners, Military bookers, and corporate and college bookers. They all book over 1000 total gigs!"

for $200. That might give you a ballpark number to consider.

May be a lot of work to find the right people but if you are industrious here is a good start.

This may work too.

Those lists I put up are just the beginning of a LOT OF WORK if you intend to use them. It is well paid work it is nice work when you land it but to find it is TOUGH WORK.

What I am saying is it is just the beginning of one heck of a lot of phone calls, emails and "no thank you" calls to be certain.

NACA is the way to go..they keep the list current because as noted, it changes alot. In any case, once you have it, the work starts. I really suggest attending one of the smaller regional conventions to promote your act.
