How to Participate in SWIG406
It's easy to start a SWIG406 profile
That all takes less than a 1/2 hour to do and after that, you are encouraged to spend 5-10 minutes a week keeping your profile intriguing to draw more customers in.
What kind of events should I add to my profile?
The possibilities are endless! Do you offer food? Do you have daily specials? How about bands? Game nights? Drink specials? Mixology classes?
How is SWIG406 advertised?
MTA takes the lead in advertising SWIG406. We supply participating taverns:
Off-the-Wall Advertising frequently features SWIG406 ads in their monthly rotation.
All SWIG406 advertising outside of bars is done digitally. We run multiple internet and social media campaigns a year focusing on the demographics that are most likely to use SWIG406.
When you want more promotional material all you need to do is contact MTA (406.442.5040) and let us know what you need.
How many free drinks will I have to give out?
The short answer is not as many as you think! Hundreds of people download the app to see what's happening at bars around the state but not everyone subscribes. What's the difference? You have to subscribe for $5/mo in order to redeem your app for a free drink. To date, bars have only redeemed a couple free drinks a month. If this starts to grow, we'll keep you posted.
