Everything you wanted to know about Experiential Marketing.
How can an Experiential Marketing Agency help a B2B brand grow?
B2B is probably the fastest growing area of our industry. At least, it is definitely for our company. We love B2B programs! Probably the biggest advantage for a B2B client is the ROI is so much crisper and more clean and more transparent than B2C.
Sometimes with B2C you’re there at the point of sale which you can see product moving off the shelves but sometimes you’re at a fair or festival and you’re creating awareness and you’re creating that trial but you don’t know exactly what they do after you’ve engaged them.
With a B2B brand, you know you’re talking to decision makers, you’re talking to customers.
What we really love designing a mobile trade show for a B2B client. – you are taking their products or services directly to the parking lots of their customers. A B2B program is so much cleaner from an ROI standpoint.
We’ve never had a B2B program that didn’t repeat at least one more year, and based on what we hear from our clients, B2B programs really work. They really do sell incremental product and they really do create ROI that’s so great that it just makes sense to continue investing in this area.
So, we love B2B and B2C.
The biggest advantage of B2B is how clean the ROI is.
Can a brand integrate an Experiential Marketing program into a bigger program?
An integrated solution means that a brand is promoting its products and services in a lot of different ways. There may be TV ads for the product, website ads, social media, experiential marketing, and there may be a PR push. The integration of all of those different media formats provide the same talking points and make sure that the program gets the biggest bang for the buck and opportunity to get out and reach as many people as possible.

We feel it’s important to hire the best people out there who are really excited and passionate about working with your brand. All of our training is face to face in our office or the client’s. We build trust quickly with our field teams so they know we’ll be there for them and they will be dedicated to us and the client’s brand.
