Once upon a time, in a bustling metropolis, a grand exhibition was about to take place. The organisers meticulously curated a collection of remarkable products, innovative services, and awe-inspiring experiences. There was, however, a rather large problem—there was no crowd to witness it.
The success of any event hinges on the ability to garner attention for it, and in the digital age, leveraging content effectively is a game-changer. Read on to explore the realm of exhibition marketing, where captivating content reigns supreme.
Chapter 1: The Art of Storytelling
The magic of storytelling lies in its ability to captivate hearts and minds. As content creators, you must amplify this power to infuse promotional materials with narratives that stir emotions and build anticipation. In the case of the exhibition, craft compelling stories that highlight the essence of it, weaving in the triumphs and challenges of the participants, and painting a vivid picture of what the attendees can expect. Why? Because 55% of your consumers are more probable to remember a well-crafted story than a list of facts.
Chapter 2: Allure ‘em with Visuals
In the digital landscape, 70% of marketers are aware that content supported by visuals is more captivating and reaps better results. You can juggle between images, videos, and infographics to transport potential attendees into the heart of the exhibition. Create visually stunning content that showcases the most intriguing aspects of the event. Highlight the mesmerising exhibits, the immersive experiences, and the interactions that attendees can look forward to.
Chapter 3: Unleash the Force of Social Media
Social media is a portal connecting audiences, exhibitors and attendees alike. Content creators must weave a web of captivating posts, engaging videos, and shareable content to spread the word and generate excitement. Ensure that you engage with the audience, respond to inquiries, and make attendees feel like active participants in the journey.
Chapter 4: Ally with Influencers
With respect to content marketing, influencers possess a special power to sway the hearts and minds of their followers. About 50% of millennials claim to trust influencer recommendations for purchase decisions. So, collaborate with influencers in your niche to cast a wider net of influence and enhance your exhibition's visibility.
Chapter 5: Keep the Cycle Going
Content marketing for your exhibition may begin with the agenda of awareness through announcements, but it’s not limited to the beginning of the exhibition. If you’re hosting a repetitive exhibition, you need consistent attention, eagerness, and excitement for the event. If yours is a one-time exhibition, you would want to make it a memorable experience for your visitors. In both cases it is essential for you to create hype before the event, keep up the excitement during the exhibition, and acknowledge the success after the affair. Some of the key ways to do so are by showing BTS shots, posing consistently, and hosting LIVE sessions.
While social media marketing for your exhibition may sound the same as any other brand, the goals you set to achieve and the content you share make it stand out. Begin with putting together a robust strategy with answers to ‘who, when, why, and how’, follow it up with enthralling content, and you’re all set to market your exhibition.
