Event marketing involves different strategies and tools to help your business stand out from the competition and connect with its customers and clients. Depending on what type of business you run, an event marketing plan may include:
Event Planning – This is all about how you design and organize an event, from the invitation to the rehearsal dinner. It includes the planning of the venue, such as a restaurant or club; registration, if required; and the logistics, including guest list and transportation. You’ll also need to make sure that the food and drink will be safe for consumption and adhere to food safety standards.
Presentations and Exhibits – Promotional Items and Promotional Merchandise – These are used for making a good first impression. They are sometimes only used at the event and sometimes at the next to create awareness of your business and brand name.
Direct Sales – This includes selling products and services, using the event for advertising and sales, and making a profit from it. This kind of marketing allows you to make a lot of contacts and get your business out in front of potential customers.
Event video – Video marketing allows you to show off your business in a way that doesn’t require audio and visual equipment. You can put together a short clip or music video that will summarize your business and potential customers, and then use that clip or music video to introduce yourself to them. This is a great way to get your business out there.
Event ticketing – By using ticketing, you can let people know when the event is happening and what it is about. It can be useful for getting people into your event and also for selling tickets after the event.
Physical Space – Creating a physical space in which your event can take place is key to having a successful event. This is how you get people to meet you, talk to you, and see you.
Conference Tables – This can be an option for some events, and a requirement for others. This lets you hire tables and chairs for your event.
Meeting Places – Places that get potential customers to come to your business are important. You want to be able to invite your visitors, greet them when they arrive, and even give them directions, such as putting a printed map up at your venue.
The most important thing to remember is that certain types of businesses can do very well without the need for any of these, while others don’t work as well. Businesses that deal in food or beverages for example, don’t always benefit from the above event marketing strategies.
