While social media and digital marketing get the biggest buzz these days, we have discovered that client programs centered around an event get the best results. Event marketing tops the marketing agenda for the year by providing an organizing principle that can be supported by all marketing channels.
Whether it’s a seminar, webinar, user conference or trade show, the three most important factors for success are:
- Compelling Theme (simple research can help a lot here)
- Solid Planning (realistic deadlines and defined responsibilities)
- Progressive Promotion (start early and pick up the pace closer to the date)
When planning the frequency and mediums for the promotion, keep in mind that email inboxes are so overloaded these days and spam filters are so hard at work that a high percentage of your message will not get through. If budget allows, a validated database that enables mail and phone contact as well as email blasts, is an effective way to reach a lot more of your target.
The value of event marketing goes way beyond the number of attendees at a given event. The promotion builds awareness and positions your company as an industry leader. It also compels you to refresh your sales messaging strategy so that it’s relevant in an ever-changing competitive marketplace.
