Looking to get more engagement from your virtual meetings? One of the best ways to accomplish this is with branded swag. You can use this swag to encourage people to attend your meetings, engage in discussions and even remember what your brand stands for.
Getting more virtual participation and engagement is especially important right now, as most businesses have shifted their in-person workshops and meetings to a virtual format. And, it’s likely that we’ll be doing this for a very long time. So, it pays off to be prepared and have a good rapport with your staff and employees.
Let’s look at some of the ways that you can use branded swag to improve your virtual meetings.
Whether you’re hosting an online training seminar or a virtual conference, getting people to attend events is a challenge. However, you know that people are home right now, so it’s a matter of making your event look interesting and worth people’s time. After all, many are struggling to balance work and family.
To help your event stand out, give a swag box to everyone who registers for your event. This will help improve attendee anticipation, as people will want to get their hands on some new swag. And, if possible, choose products that align with your meeting and deliver them in advance. For example, you can send out personalized pens and notepads so attendees can take notes.
VIP Speaker Swag Bags
Another way to make your online meetings more enticing is by inviting guest speakers to speak at your event. These speakers can share industry insight and offer objective feedback, motivating your employees to work on various goals before they return to the workplace. Provide your guest speakers with the necessary tools to deliver a compelling on-screen presentation like a name badge, branded backdrop and other personalized goods.
Attendee Appreciation Gift Bags
If you don’t have the time to mail out swag bags before your event starts, you can send them out after your virtual event. This is a great move if you have a highly targeted audience that shows up and participates in your meetings. After the conference is over, send attendees corporate swag that lets them know you appreciate their continued participation. Choose products that will help people keep productive at home, such as noise-cancelling headphones, stationery, comfortable corporate apparel and insulated tumblers.
Contest prizes are guaranteed to motivate your teams – even if they’re working from home. Just like kids, adults often need some bribing, too. If people know that they have a chance to win a pour-over coffee set or luxury food basket, they’ll be more likely to engage in your discussions and work towards your business goals. In turn, you only have to send out a few contest prizes, and you’ll have plenty of feedback to apply to your business.
