They represent invaluable opportunity to meet face to face with your customers and prospects, and present an avenue for increasing brand recognition and market share.
Define your goals for the event
For your event to be a success, you need to define what your metrics for success are. It’s difficult to measure how successful your use of branded products was if you don’t know what you are trying to achieve by using them at the event.
Set a budget for your event
Set a budget that you can stick to, then prioritize where your funds are most needed based on your goals for the event. For example, if one of your key goals is to get your brand name out there, having business cards and branded products for attendees to remember you by will help to build your brand’s reputability.
