FOCUS ON CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
There’s a lot of opportunity at a trade show, but there’s also a lot of competition. You’ll be among some of the top building and construction professionals in the world, all offering their own unique appeal, so you have to give your business an edge.
Presentation is everything, and you want customers to immediately gravitate toward your booth and engage with you so that you have an opportunity to offer them information of value and an experience that keeps them coming back for more. Make your booth inviting, refine your pitch, keep a list of new contacts and talk to anyone and everyone.
Free stuff is great, but it tends to be left in the trunk of a car or the bottom of a bag. Give away something of real value to your customers so they remember you.
Marketing for a trade show is more than simply posting on social media. You also want to post live streams and status updates during the show, which will draw people to your booth and keep everyone engaged with the show’s events.
After the show wraps up, post follow-ups and reach out to the contacts you made during the show. Put a sign-up sheet at your booth and make sure to contact each individual or business after the show. Additionally, hand out business cards and encourage people to follow you on social media, all of which will give you a chance to convert these leads into sales long after.
