When it comes to marketing a small business, it’s often easy to commit to small marketing efforts – like boosting a social media post, buying a small ad in a local paper, or tangible things like printing business cards and brochures. You might even boost several posts a month with the end result being a lot of “likes” but not a lot of action. But it’s easy to spend $20 here, $50 there – even if the return isn’t that great.
For some small businesses, investing in a tradeshow booth is a little out of their budget comfort zone. $500-600 for a day of marketing can seem like a lot. But participating in an expo is not the same as media marketing or boosting social media posts. You have to ask yourself, “how much would I pay to meet potential customers face-to-face?” Potential customers who took time out of their day to physically come to you. Our shows average over 2,000 attendees, and all of them are there because they are interested in what our exhibitors have to offer. Not only do you get to make a first impression or make a sale right there on the expo, but you also get to see how your customers react to your products, services, or marketing. And our shows are a great way to get rid of that stack of brochures behind your desk that haven’t moved in months.
