Does your organization participate in event marketing? Event marketing, unlike traditional avenues, has the ability to link brands and audiences together in a unique way. These events create experiences that last much longer than a passing glimpse at an ad. Instead, they forge deep memories in the minds of the viewer and tie their positive experiences directly back to the company or organization who provided the interactions.
When done well, events have the ability to create a powerful impact of your organization’s potential. By allowing your guests to interact with your employees and mutual network, you are allowing people to experience and interact with your company instead of just viewing it passively. While companies choose to participate in events for various reasons, the most common motivations include building brand awareness, lead generation, customer engagement, and education.
Depending on your goal, there are several options for your company to participate in events, from online like webinars, virtual events, and live streaming, to real-time, physical events like trade shows, conferences, and private networking events.
No matter the form of event you choose to participate in, there are 3 rules you should follow when planning and organizing the event.
