Marketing That Gets Noticed

Experiential gets your brand, product, or service out in public and creates an exciting and fun event for people to enjoy.  This means that consumers are invited to interact with your brand on a live and in person level instead of just having traditional marketing such as commercials.

We all know that any time you flip on the TV, radio, or open a newspaper there is a enormous amount of advertising. This means that your brand can get lost in the sea of radio spots, TV commercials, and newspaper ads.   When the marketing is done in person by highly trained and excited live people it makes it personal, fun, and something that gets notice and motivates your audience.

What Is Experiential Marketing?

Experiential marketing is known by a few names such as “Live Marketing”, “Engaging Marketing”, “Participation Marketing”, “Event Marketing”, or “Special Event Marketing”.  It is characterized by inviting consumers to participate in person with your brand and engage with or help evolve your brand.  The major characteristic that defines experiential marketing is that consumers are active participants instead of passive receivers of your message.

When people get to see it live, touch it, and experience the quality of luxury of your product in person it makes a deeper connection with your brand.  All of this leads to increased revenue, greater consumer loyalty, and increased word of mouth advertising.

Why Experiential Marketing?

Simply stated experiential marketing makes your brand a live and in person experience.  Which is better, seeing a picture of an island paradise, or visiting an island paradise yourself?  That is the difference between simply seeing your product or service on TV, and getting a chance to sample it or see it live through experiential marketing.  Experiential marketing succeeds through three key facets, connecting, interacting, and retaining.  Read below to see how each of these keys works.


When your brand is live and in person people can connect with it in a more meaningful way than simply seeing it on TV.  They connect with the product, service, and with the excitement.


Consumers get to see the product, sample it, try it out for themselves.  When they get to experience the superior quality of your product live with their senses it becomes more real.


When people have experienced something live they remember it better and experiential marketing helps them create long lasting positive impressions of your brand and quality.

Commerce is emotional and people tend to indulge their wants only when they are excited.  The emotional bonds people make from interacting with your brand live are much more significant than those created by commercials or other advertising. Experiential marketing helps increase awareness of your brand, increases revenue, and provides unmatchable consumer loyalty.

Internet, TV, and radio commercials all lack the live and in person aspect of experiential marketing.  Traditional marketing and internet marketing clearly have their place to maintain brand awareness they will never be able to provide your prospective consumers with the live and in person excitement that experiential marketing delivers. Today’s consumer is virtually all but blind to traditional advertising with the enormous amount of offerings they are exposed to via all media streams and outlets.  Our experiential marketing service will create a fun and exciting live event that people will notice, interact with, and remember.
