What is experiential marketing?
Experiential creates a closer bond between consumer and brand, unlocking many doors that allows customers to positively engage with a product or company, driving key messaging with a specific end goal that delivers ROI. When consumers interact with a brand they have had little awareness or association with in the past, they often overlook its value. The action of engaging people with a physical experience that positively evokes variants of happy emotions, increases the likelihood of consumers associating these happy emotions with the brand itself, in turn improving the chances of peer to peer recommendation and the likelihood of the consumer seeking to find out more. In fact, according to a report by Event Track, 70% of users become regular customers after an experiential marketing event*. It is a common mistake to believe that Experiential Marketing is merely brand in hand promotional work, the term spans many types of unique offerings from product sampling, brand interaction, immersive events, guerrilla marketing, in person service offerings, theatrical engagement and so much more including online or digital…It’s pretty creative actually.
