Have you ever attended a blogging or online marketing conference? Hopefully you have, as they are now all over the place and happening in various countries around the world.
No matter if you are attending as a visitor, a brand, or even a sponsor, there are plenty of ways to get extra attention for your website name or business logo. Outside of the traditional methods like just relying on business cards, websites like https://www.helloprint.co.uk/ make it extremely easy to upload your logo, pick an item, and them have your custom printed product design and shipped in no time.
Stickers and Pens
If you’ve ever been to a conference before, you will find that pens are always a winner. Whether you are going to purchase the cheap ones or high end ones, it seems like they will always get tossed around and shared by the audience. Heck, some of these pens may make their way across the country by just getting passed along. Best of all, they will have your site name or logo on them the whole time.
Stickers are also fun. While everyone might not want to stick your brand name or logo on their car or desktop, they are definitely cool to have as the owner of your blog. Also, if you can come up with a fun and exciting way to make a sticker design that people like, then they will be that much more likely to keep them and stick them on something of their own.
Tshirts are another big winner at conferences. Not just to give out, but also to wear.
If you are going to be attending an event, this is a must for blog owners and any companies that might have a team going along with them. It’s just way to easy to get your tshirts printed in a matter of minutes, then sent to your home within a few days.
I personally have a bunch of shirts with my name and logo on them that I wear all the time. It sure beats wearing another shirt with someone else’ brand on it!
Booth Banners and Flyers
If you are going to be attending an event as a sponsor or speaker, it’s a great idea to have some flyers or banners created as well — this is especially true if you are going to have a booth.
With so many different conferences and events taking place these days, it’s important to make a good first impression and having the right visuals with your brand name and logo on them is key. As usual, the printing process for banners and flyers is pretty simple. All you need to do is select a pre-made template, upload your logo and then you are pretty much good to go!
How to Make the Most Out of Your Next Big Conference
Whether it’s a blogger conference or one that is focused on offline/online business, it’s very important that you network as much as possible. Through the use of a fancy shirt, having out some sticker and pens, or even having your own booth… it’s all about making that immediate connection and offering something to your audience of value.
