In Store Experiences Still Matter - Make Them Work for Your Brand

By Jenn Cringoli on Nov. 5 2020, 11:30 AM

Just because people aren’t going to stores as often as before doesn’t mean in-store experiences are any less important. Actually, in a time where most retailers have to defer to their e-commerce arms, in-store gatherings and events yield a valuable boost to the overall customer experience retailers provide.

For starters, they’re a human way to help retailers bolster their brand awareness. Even events before the promotion help get more eyes on the brand, while invitations, promo material, and marketing collateral even help make headway with people who decide not to attend the event. Plus, in-store events can nudge customers toward making a purchase decision, either on or offline. Inside a store, customers can interact with the products, staff, and aesthetics that help inform a customer experience that shoppers are too eager to share.

Verizon wanted to draw consumers into its event space, which is why it partnered with Snapchat last year for an augmented reality treasure hunt. Whiskey distributor Glenfiddich aimed to wow its audience, which is why it developed a personalized, digital app-enhanced tasting. And to help its messaging cut through the clutter and competition, lifestyle brand Refinery29 designed its 29Rooms event as a way for brands to do just that.

Why Logistics Is the Real MVP of Any Experiential Campaign

By Jenn Cringoli on Apr. 4 2019, 12:21 PM

When an experiential campaign soars, few people remember the logistics. Attendees focus on the event’s buzz, the overall atmosphere, and how the experience made them feel. They remember the vivid scenery and the engagement components.

Many marketers overlook the coordination necessary to pull such an experience together. Logistics — i.e., scheduling, staffing, and venue management — are the gears that help an activation come together. Clients aren’t likely to focus on them, but they play an important role in bringing programs to life.
