Professional tradeshows are great opportunities for small businesses. Tradeshows allow small businesses to promote product/brand awareness, boost sales, increase their customer base, and promote their company.
Yet, small businesses are always competing with large companies that have the resources to purchase huge displays and exhibits. Bigger, however, is not always better. There are still ways for a small business to attract passersby at the tradeshow.
Like exhibitors, those attending tradeshow have also invested time and money to attend. Like exhibitors, they also want to develop business relationships. So, they want exhibitors to charm them. That’s great. They, however, decide whether to approach a booth in less than one second. That’s not so great.
The less-than-one-second time limit applies equally to both big and small businesses. The playing field is equal in that regard.Small businesses can take advantage of it.
If you own and/or manage a small business, here are some tips to get for getting passersby to notice your professional tradeshow booth:
o Smile and greet people. It may sound obvious, but friendly greetings are underrated and many forget to offer them. Warm, personable approaches also welcome people in and open up conversations.
o If possible, let attendees handle/interact with/demo your products, or use or display videos showcasing others using your product. Anything you can do to allow attendees to somehow experience your product is good.
o Stand out. Wear brightly colored tee shirts that advertise your company or product or dress in a manner that brings attention to your product (i.e. if you’re selling sports related merchandise, wear sports jerseys).
o Feature a fun activity. Hold a raffle and give away a prize or conduct an educational event about your industry.
o Give away free merchandise, especially items with your company name and/or logo, or food.
