We understand and support your primary commitments and priorities whether you are a student, employee, or have a family, however, we expect dependability and up front communication about your schedule, availability, or any conflicts that may arise.
  • THE APPP BLOG - One blog entry per month with the exception of an occasional second entry for larger APPP events we want to promote through our blog. Our blogs feature local business owners, organizations, artists, or musicians. This is a place where we get to go behind the scenes with our local creatives and entrepreneurs to share their story. Please visit our blog to see our interview style. We will provide you with assignment options and contact info for each blog entry, however, we would love to hear leads for any good interviews. We will provide you with purpose and direction for each interview, however, we want your voice and personal language to be used to deliver the interview adding any questions or comments that naturally come about through your conversation. You will be responsible for coordinating and scheduling the interview, delivering a complete interview in written question/answer form, and produce 8-10 edited photo images for the blog entry.  It's possible you will have admin rights on our social media platforms to publish a post and tag all participants when we launch the blog. It's possible you will be responsible for uploading and editing the blog on our website as a draft before it's final publication, otherwise you will submit your work to info@apeoplepartyproductions.com. The deadline is always dependent on everyone's availability. The goal is to have one blog entry per month. All work must be spell checked and about a 3-5 minute read.
  • PRESS RELEASE WORK - Produce any short press releases for any local media we may need for upcoming events, special highlights, or any other inquires by the media.
  • EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY - APPP has several different options when it comes to event photography. This is something we'd love to have in-house, however, we also work out trades with photographers in exchange for our marketing and credibility on all the countless platforms and times we'll use their photos to promote our brand and our events, including magazines publications, social media, our website or other marketing platforms. Occasionally we can offer compensate for event photography depending our budget per each event. We have been featured in Hispanic Life, The Optimist, Abilene Scene Magazine, soon to be Texas Living, and endorsed by Texas Monthly online.
  • SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGES - It's possible you may be sent on an occasional field trip to shoot images of other local events, locations, or products we want to talk about on our platform. You can also submit any photos you think would be a good share for our local promotions brand. All social media posts must be approved under all circumstances and will most likely be administered by Jen. Photos can be submitted via text, google shared photos, or emailed to info@apeoplepartyproductions.com.
