It seems like almost every industry has shifted to accommodate online events. From zoom meetings to webinars, remote learning, and business or marketing video conferencing. Putting together events – large and small – whether in person or virtually, means a lot of preparation. Starting with the big stuff like where and how, all the way down to the tiniest details, marketers and event coordinators and planners put a lot of hard work into creating the perfect experience for everyone involved. One of those details, and one that may be more impactful than some think in these unprecedented times, are the member gifts or welcome packages – the “swag bags” – your event gives to presenters and attendees.
Putting these packages together and sourcing all the promotional items that go in them can be time-consuming, and without the right networking and resources, can be costly. The good news is that by utilizing a service like ProList’s fulfillment division, virtual event fulfillment for your business or organization can be relatively easy and painless.
As is the case with any seminar, conference, or event where a few dozen to hundreds or even thousands of attendees congregate to learn and network, you’re going to need a plethora of event handouts, brochures, informational material, sponsor materials and probably much more. Because of this, it’s common for attendees to receive swag bag with these items, plus other takeaways like branded promotional items and gifts, too. These items can be personalized or generic, and usually relate in some way to the messaging of the conference or organizing entity. Examples include pens, notebooks, keychains, USB drives, webcam covers, hand sanitizer and pretty much any other helpful and useful items that the organizers can brainstorm and come up with! These items are fabulous take-aways, that reinforce your brand, your event, and leave a resonating impact with anyone who attended.
But do you really need swag bags for your attendees? Is the cost worth it? Is there an ROI on handing out gift bags full of goodies to people who have signed up for your virtual event? The short answer is yes; the delight of receiving something without any cost is universally cherished, and the greater your generosity with sharing your treats is, the more you will sow feelings of fondness and the likelihood of generating a good lasting impression.
It is not just about making your brand more recognizable, but also about creating favorable associations and memories in the minds of the people who could ultimately help to take it to the next level.
