Have you ever stopped to consider the very real business benefits you can achieve by planning and carrying out an outstanding and memorable event? The kind of homerun success that every small business owner dreams of? So, you want to plan an amazing event to promote your business?
The bottom line is this. What do you, as a small business, get out of it? Let’s uncover for you the benefits of mindfully planning your business’s event and why you should begin planning without delay.
Awareness of Your Small Business
Is your business seen as a leader in its field? Do your potential customers know that you exist? The solution to reaching more clients, getting more prospects and improving your bottom line is to make your target audience deeply aware of your presence in the marketplace.
You want to be in your prospects’ radar constantly, making sure that when a buying decision is about to be made, you are the first port of call.
Now, consider how much more effective a carefully planned, successfully ran, high profile event would be at raising awareness of your company.
When thinking about what type of event to host, you may want to consider building the entire event around a particular brand. With mindful event management and planning, a memorable event can be an excellent platform to build and reinforce brand awareness – particularly for a new product/service launch.
Outsell Your Competition
As a small business owner, ask yourself this question: “How many of your competitors are organising successful events?”
If the answer is none, then you clearly have the opportunity to raise your small business head and shoulders above the competition, putting yourself in the best possible position to outsell them.
If the answer is some, or all, then you definitely need to be organising events to give your small business the chance to compete. The key is to organise a more professional, more memorable event through superior event management.
Collect Potential Customer Information
A major benefit of properly structured event planning, is that it gives you the ideal opportunity to capture potential customer information, such as email addresses, in an acceptable and, more importantly, legal way. (We’re assuming you already have contact details for existing clients).
Gaining a reputation as a “spammer” could be disastrous for your small business, but… when people attend and are impressed by your event, they will happily divulge their details to stay up to date with your next offering.
Popularity by Association
When you plan an event, securing the services of a well-known personality to speak or cater your audience can result in major benefits for your small business.
If your audience has a truly enjoyable and memorable experience, they are bound to associate your company and brand with that experience. They are far more likely to think of you, rather than the competition when it comes to order time.
