Experiential marketing is a strategy that markets a product or service through tangible, memorable, and inclusive experiences.

Audiences are invited to participate in demonstrations directly so that they may touch and view products or services in a physical space in real time.

Whether you are exhibiting at a trade show or hosting an in-store event, engaging brand ambassadors are a crucial component to any experiential marketing plan.

Prior to an event, brand ambassadors will sit down with you to learn everything they can about your brand, products, values, and goals. By the time they meet your customers, they will be able to speak to your brand with confidence.

It doesn’t matter whether your offering is food, perfume, or a home cleaning service,brand ambassadors will bring it to life in front of any audience.

They’re perfect product samplers because of their friendly attitude.People are drawn to their charisma and their passionate belief in your product.

Face-to-Face Interaction is good for Business

Brand ambassadors are approachable event marketing professionals who are there to educate attendees about your brand or service not just through sampling, but also through one-on-one discussions.

With experiential marketing there is a great deal of face-to-face engagement with customers. You’ll need individuals who can interact with all sorts of peoplefor long periods of time.

Consider the Swedish retail giant IKEA’s PJ Party.

Last February, IKEA stores across Canada hosted a sleepover where 10 to 20 customers spent the night in a bed of their choice in the showroom. They participated in activities such as meditation and yoga, and went home with a swag bag of IKEA goodies.

All of this was facilitated by enthusiastic brand ambassadors who engaged with loyal IKEA fans throughout the night.

Participants developed a stronger connection to IKEA, immersing themselves in the brand’s retail space and interacting with knowledgeable and personable brand ambassadors throughout the night.

Increase your brand’s loyalty by integrating brand ambassadors and experiential marketing into your retail marketing campaign. You’ll be surprised at how much fun you will have!
