Trade shows are an opportunity to not only showcase your company’s latest products, but also meet with other partners in the industry and develop relationships with potential customers. You’ll want to come prepared to connect and advance your business, though, and one of the best ways to do that? Through trade show promos.
Why do they matter?
One of the earliest promotional products was Wrigley’s gum. Back in 1891, Wrigley just sold soap and baking soda. Then, they put their logo on packs of gum and started giving it away for free, hoping to build their customer base and brand loyalty. The result? Wrigley’s is now a $5 billion gum company!
And that’s an example of why promos matter.
Good trade show promos will make a lasting impression on the recipient, so that they will think of you later on and purchase your services or products. A promo should be something of high value to the recipient and low cost to you, so that you can afford to give it away for free. It should also be something that complements your other advertising media – perhaps through referencing it directly in an advertisement or by giving it away during an informational video at a trade show.
