Event marketing is the promotion of your product, brand, or service through in-person interactions.
There are many forms of event marketing and each can be catered to address a specific goals. You can host your own event, attend one or be a sponsor at an event.
Online events, such as webinars, vary in scope and prove to be just as impactful as live events.
Whatever the format, event marketing is an incredibly effective strategy that builds long-term value upon relationships with clients and partners alike.
An event has to be unforgettable to have the impact you want for your business.
Depending on your goals for the event, you want it to be more than just an ad for your brand. You want a targeted audience to experience what you offer. Leaving a powerful impression. An event will allow you to interact with customers, get feedback and make a memory for your prospects.
1. People Become Aware of Your Brand
A major reason to have an event attached to your business is to establish and build your brand. An event puts you in front of people who can experience what your brand’s message is. You can share your ideas in the exact way you want to be known. Media is also a big part of events. This can be an opportunity to grow your social media content, be seen in local print and online.
2. Generate Leads
A huge reason to have an event is to generate precious leads. You will have interested clients/customers right in front of you. You can interact, grab information, make connections. Grow your email list, get numbers. Use hashtags created for your event so people can share, and search for you later on social media.
3. Engagement and Up-sell
An event is a great way to build loyalty. Introduce customers who already love your brand to new products or services at your event. Build on your already established customer base and continue wowing them with more of you awesomeness. You want to create brand ambassadors who will spread the word about you - this is how you do it.
People love to learn new things. You can take the advantage of an event to teach people about your product and service. Also have information for them to take with them. Use demonstrations if you product needs to be seen before it can be bought. Show your audience how things work, what value you can bring to their lives. Event Marketing is a must have for any product or service you offer.
