Marketing a new business takes time. Unless it is done in the right manner, the target may not be wowed with the product/service. To get it right, trade shows work rather well for reasons cited below.
Basis for Promotions
As a podium where promotions are the basis, trade shows work rather well. It could be done through the prism of sponsorships or participation at the event itself. Giveaways also work well for a brand that energizes people over to the counter that offers something interesting for the avid consumer. Create a pitch and slogan well before the event so that people organize their day and head over to the stall that has a great deal of promise.
The right flow of colours and imagery sets the tone at a trade show. It lets on that the new entrant in the realm of barter has something promising with a visual stimulus that entices the target. It provides the upcoming brand with potential, as varieties of visitors throng trade shows to visit stalls and purchase goods that are interesting. Sebastian Greenwood once quoted Og Mandino who said, “Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later”.
Make Your Presence Felt
Trade shows usually take place over a couple of days and using this time is critical to show off a new product by a new entrant or an established player. Using this to the advantage of the brand encourages visitors to stay put in the stall. They can opt to purchase the product or order in, based on the right pitch by the sales team. By being the best host at an amazing stall, people are bound to come back for more, because at trade shows the best brand usually wins a huge amount. It helps in establishing a suitable presence for the brand
If the brand has an ambassador who is remembered for the product that has been around, bringing in the key person makes a huge impact. It is likely that many may just flock to the stall to catch a glimpse, but with the right play by the sales team and the ambassador, the brand will rake in the big notes. Get people to order and avail discounts and the brand equity will be at an all-time high.
There are plenty of advantages in brand participation at trade shows. Sebastian Greenwood once quoted Ayn Rand who said, “A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others”.
