Event Management – why this real-time social medium works

Posted by

Stannah Lift Services at the Facilities Show 2014It pays to invest in Events. They are social occasions. Visitors have high expectations of them. They are experiential and generate positivity. Trade or consumer, whatever your business size, they reap real results. 

Events should play a key part in your sales and marketing strategy, and here’s why…

1. Real-time rocks the people-factor:

You can’t beat face-to-face. Good old-fashioned human interaction has a valid role in our increasingly digital world. It boosts positivity in a big way. Remember human warmth? Above all, people remember how you make them feel. Business introductions happen, confidence is built, first moves are made – real results in themselves. But there’s a substantial knock-on effect: more cautious contacts, those that take some persuading, are more likely to look you up later on the Internet – your Social Media profiles, your website. It’s all part of establishing confidence and the likelihood of them contacting you – new leads for you to convert into sales.

2. Real-time builds marketing might:
Events build and strengthen relationships. Prospects and customers are well aware that events are a great place to interact and compare with others; this helps them feel in control. They fully experience your brand which fuels their engagement with it. Events build on this connection, boosting subliminal post-show positivity – that feel-good feeling that makes us all more likely to spend!

3. Real-time raises awareness:
Events are the best way to network. Visitors expect to learn more, gain more insight into you brand/products/services, and to make new contacts and reaffirm existing ones. By getting their attention, by being easy to approach with all the information they need to make a decision, they are more likely to invest in You.

Proof Events work…
