A club promoter is someone who works for a nightclub and is responsible for making sure that the club is a popular and well-attended place. There are numerous ways in which this is done. Effectively, a club promoter is a chief marketer for a nightclub. However, instead of simply launching advertising campaigns, a club promoter may be responsible for going out into the public to talk about the club and encourage people to attend or hosting special nights or parties at the club intended to draw more people to the club.

One way that a club promoter might garner the interest of the public is to hold a special event at the club. Perhaps he or she will rent a mechanical bull one night a week and host a Western-themed bull riding party. The recent trend of speed dating has also become a popular nightclub event. Speed dating seems to be the revamped classic "ladies' night" in which women are admitted for free but men have to pay a cover price. Club promoters often work closely with the person on staff who books performances. Live music and popular deejays can potential draw big crowds to a nightclub.

In order to get the word out about such events, club promoters may make appearances on radio shows that play music which is also popular at the club. Promoters may also attend events similar to the ones held at his or her nightclub. For example, if a promoter is working for a nightclub that is known for its great R & B performances, then it would make good sense to go to events where R & B music is being played or performed and talk up upcoming events at the nightclub.

In order to be a club promoter, it is important to be willing to keep late hours. Many nightclubs, especially those in major cities, stay open until four in the morning. Some go even later than that. Furthermore, club promoters need to have good people skills, as much of the job involves networking, setting up events, planning events, and communicating with media outlets and the public. Of course, for someone who enjoys the nightclub scene, being a club promoter can also be a very fun job; not only do club promoters get to plan great parties, but they also get to enjoy them.
