What is Experiential Marketing? Everything You Need to Know

Are you looking for a way to improve your marketing strategy? Experiential marketing may be the solution you never knew you needed.

A growing number of companies are turning to experiential marketing to boost their customer engagement, brand image, and sales in 2023.

Before you dive into it, though, you need to know how to create a winning event with the help of a street team. The right activity and strategies, like sampling, can help you to create an unforgettable company image.

Here’s a rundown on everything you need to know about experiential marketing and how the company AUCTUS can help you to further grow your business long term.

Let’s dig in!

How Experiential Marketing Works to Build Your Brand

This type of marketing is aimed at providing customers with hands-on experiences to boost their awareness of your product or service. The goal of this type of marketing is to also build their understanding of your offering. In this way, you can increase your sales.

Note that experiential marketing experiences can be both online and offline. Online events range from conferences to webinars. Meanwhile, offline ones include demo days, trade shows, and live events.

Benefits of an Experiential Marketing Event for the Street Team

Experiential marketing offers several benefits to companies, including its ability to help you to connect more deeply with consumers and turn them into paying customers.

By delivering authentic experiences in person, you can drive up the demand for your offering. This will help with driving sales conversions at your business.

Benefits of an Experiential Marketing Activity for the Customer

Customers love being able to try products before they buy them, and that’s exactly what experiential marketing can do for them. After experiencing your products firsthand at your experiential marketing event, prospective customers will be more inclined to buy your products and therefore increase your sales revenue.

Experiential marketing activities also benefit customers in that an in-person experience is generally comfortable and unintrusive. With this type of marketing, you can reach the consumer where they are — as well as where they desire to be.

Sampling and Other Tips for Creating a Unique Sales Experience

You can use a variety of strategies to make your experiential marketing campaign a winning one. For instance, you can use sampling. This is where you give consumers complimentary samples of your products to generate leads.

You can also host a pop-up store. This is where you take over a space temporarily to showcase and sell your services and goods.

Other options include product demos, workshops, and even an augmented reality (AR) experience. AR may help customers to better experience your product before they buy them.
