Trade Show Marketing Tip
A small home builder told me that they had attended a local home
show for years.
They set the booth and received lots of leads and always knew what
was happening in the industry as competitors and suppliers made
announcements for the audience.
In recent years they noticed that the traffic started to drop off.
The volume and quality of leads felt like they were dropping.
They felt anxious that they weren't quite getting the value they
used to but didn't want to drop the show as it was one of their
primary means of new leads.
Their question? What do we do?
The answer lies not in what you feel, but what you can measure.
Do you track the leads from your show? How many total? And how
many become business?
This is one area that companies seem to be very lax at. If you
pick up a 100 leads and close none, was it worth it? If you find
10 and close 5 was it worth it?
Do you think these numbers are an accident? Not really.
Your decisions on what shows to attend (or not), what offers to
make (or not) and how to qualify prospects (or not) are one key
to show success.
So don't forget. Measure, measure, measure.
And when you are faced with the decision on whether to drop a show,
add a show, or change tactics at a show, you will have confidence
based on data, not fear.
