On With the Show - Targeted Tactics

  • Aug 12, 2015

Targeted tactics for trade show marketing set the stage for long-term success. Many exhibitors fail to think of retention and reuse when selecting products for trade show marketing.

Do you hand out trinkets to everyone who walks by? Does the whole activity resemble Trick-or-Treat? The first step is to stop regarding this as a giveaway. To avoid just throwing away money, start by asking yourself a few questions. (It's OK to look up the answers.)

  • When and where will the show be?
  • Who is attending the show?
  • Will every attendee be a qualified buyer, or should you be targeting a select group?
  • What do you sell? Any gifts you distribute should be relevant to your business.
  • What are your goals for the show? (Perhaps the most important question!)
    • Lead generation?
    • Conversion?
    • Branding?

Once you answer those questions, it's time to get assistance from a promotional marketing firm like APTCO. We can help you select the right gifts, ones which will be worthwhile, to give to those visitors who are worth your while. If you approach this properly, you'll have a way to separate these from the rest. Those who qualify will receive a nice thank-you, and you will be that much closer to your goal.

Trade shows can be a most effective means of marketing, or they can be a complete waste of time and money. APTCO can help you make sure it's the first one.
