If you’re running a lifestyle business, brand awareness through events such as trade show displays will go a long way in fast-tracking your success at a relatively low cost. Since it’s not enough to just show up and expect everything to sail smoothly from there, some pointers with which to increase engagement have been extracted from the manner through which trade show experts at ExpoMarketing run their operations in support of businesses that have realised the importance of this kind of marketing.
Don’t Skimp on Your Branding Design
Because of the relative ease with which the graphic design process seems to form part of the core construction of branding material, it’s often taken for granted and the urge to skimp on this aspect sometimes creeps in. It’s important to have eye-catching and effective branding, because at an exhibition, potential clients come into contact with your branding as their first impression of your lifestyle business offerings.
Keep Things Open and Accessible
It would be a nice problem to have if potential customers who were attracted to your booth on account of your attractive branding couldn’t all make their way to the interaction point with your team. However, should the “problem” arise, you should be able to solve it on-the-fly. Have the booth dynamically set up so that interested parties can gain access from multiple sides.
Create a Reason for Attendees to Stop By
Whether the booth is well-designed or not, which it should ALWAYS BE without question, existing and potential customers who are sure about their intentions to complete a purchase will naturally be drawn in, but you should cater to those who are on the fence as well, perhaps even more so than you cater to those who are already sold. Give them a reason to at least stop by so that you can work on the residual methods to further persuade them, such as simulating a fun and interactive demonstration, interesting them in a giveaway which they can enter into or anything else which they can actually physically do in an interactive manner.
Demonstrate and Showcase Your Offering
You lose a potential customer for life and make it hard for them to ever consider coming back if they’re left to their own devises in trying to figure out what your offering is all about and eventually walk away not able to do so. If you have the welcome headache of your team not being there to engage with everybody and explain what everything is all about due to being occupied with doing the same with other interested parties, the value of your offering should be showcased as visibly and clearly as possible. It shouldn’t take too long for customers to know what they’re looking at and why it should matter to them.
