It’s not enough to attend, sponsor, or exhibit at a networking event. Whether the plan is to participate in a local chamber of commerce event or be a part of a conference that gathers people from all across the nation, it helps to contact a modelling agency and arrange for the right type of promotional staff to be along. Here are some of the ways that those professionals can help you make the event a greater success.
Promoting Your Brand
Having staff to promote your brand with the other attendees is a great way to build connections and ensure more people recognize the company name and logo. By circulating through the area while the conference, trade show, or other type of event is in progress, they have the chance to talk one on one with others about what your company has to offer. Even if all they do is smile and greet people, the fact that they are there wearing something that has to do with your company will motivate more people to seek out information later.
Getting a Feel for the Crowd
Many people who work as promotion staff at events develop a sense of how to read people. That makes it easier to identify individuals who are likely to be interested in whatever you have to sell. Instead of waiting for those people to discover your booth at a trade show or learn about you because of a presentation you make, your staff can arrange for a faster and more casual meeting.
That reading of the crowd is also a great way to gather some feedback on what others think about your business. For this reason, some of your staff will not be wearing anything that promotes your brand directly. Instead, they will be there to initiate conversations, steer them to the subject of your company and the products you have to offer, and listen to the responses. The feedback collected, whether it be positive or negative, will help you hone your marketing plan and future attempts to network.
Adding Some Fun to the Mix
When you hire prom staff, you are adding some fun to whatever the event happens to be. Perhaps some of the staff will make sure a prominent client who is in attendance has the best seat for a presentation, or does not lack for charming dinner company. Others can pass out promotional items that are designed to bring a smile to the faces of the recipients and cultivate more good will toward your business. These and other applications, when handled by professionals, will increase the odds of coming away from the event with some important contacts as well as reinforcing connections with others.
Start making plans to include promotional staff in your next event. Talk with an agency representative about the type of event you will be attending or exhibiting at and come up with a plan of action that is sure to capture the right type of attention. Rest assured the investment will pay off at the show and in the months to come.
