Branding is an essential aspect of marketing, and trade shows are an ideal place to establish your brand name. The challenge lies in looking for ways to establish positive connotations within the target market in a simple but memorable manner. Here are some tips on creating a buzz around your business that can lead to more customers.
Making Brand Awareness an Essential Part of the Exhibit
Exhibitions can be a powerful extension of a firm’s advertising and public relations as well as enhance brand awareness. Ensure your marketing and promotional materials around the booth, like retractable banners, are consistent and have the same logo, typeface, colors, and characters. People’s perception of a brand is subjective to personal experience, and this can be established by consistently emphasizing its qualities through several exhibits of different types.
Create an impactful message on all sides of your booth especially for exhibits located in a central area that can be viewed from all sides. Having a 3-D display allows you to get the maximum traffic and impact for your brand. You can then convey the product’s personality and the company’s logo to everyone who passes by. Exhibits that keep changing shape or colors and are visible from a long distance are most likely to grab viewers’ attention.
Bring Brand Ambassadors
Get your most vocal employees to exhibit your brand and discuss its features with potential customers. Employees that talk about products and services in an engaging manner through Q & A sessions and games act as brand experts and have the ability to create a positive and lasting impression on the visitors.
Trade shows are a great way to reach out to key audiences outside your immediate local area specifically if the product is for a competitive industry or for a new vertical that is outside your comfort zone. They can help to connect with a new group of potential buyers and expand the market, making your business more successful.
