Going to a major, promotional event should be an exciting experience from start to finish. If you haven’t been having much success in event marketing, you may not be giving your crowd what it wants. Following are several things that you can do to make these affairs much more amazing.
Avoid placing your entire focus on selling. Efforts to get people to open their wallets, even for a worthy cause, can make them a bit nervous, this is a natural and protective response. The beauty of a marketing event is that it gives you the chance to put people in a buying mood. Thus, you should invest a lot of effort into ensuring that all those who encounter you feel relaxed and that they aren’t aggressively pursued.
Give the crowd something for free; this doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, you don’t have to part with anything tangible. If you sell massage chairs, let your spectators take a quick sit in one of your best models. So that they can feel firsthand the pain and stress-relieving benefits that this unit provides, this is a service that people pay for at shopping malls, and it is one that they will love getting free of charge from you.
Offer your crowd something that they can’t refuse and then make sure to let people know that the offer is available only for a limited amount of time, this is an excellent way to increase your event sales. Limited offers generate a sense of buyer urgency by making people feel as though they might miss out on something worthwhile if they don’t act fast.
Always have an online component to you presentation that people can refer to after they have left the physical venue behind, this allows interested parties to ask questions about the materials that were presented in your presentation and to learn more about who you are and what you do. It also gives you the perfect opportunity to start building stronger relationships with your latest customers and those who are poised to convert.
