Keep scrolling for a few tips and tricks that’ll help your product gain the attention it deserves.
Step 1: Nail the Venue Hire
Choosing the right venue can literally make (or break!), your event. Who wants to head to a boring function room with no character? No one! Make sure that when it comes to venue hire, you pick somewhere that provides a sense of atmosphere and complements your brands identity. The location you choose will have a huge effect on marketing your product, to the right people. Make sure your venue speaks to your demographic, and supports your brand, so that your product can do the talking.
Step 2: Become a Social Media King/ Queen
Since you’re actually marketing your new product at the launch event, you’re going to need to market the event itself, too! Make sure that you and your team put together a strong marketing strategy in the weeks before the event, involving everything from social media posts to sending out email newsletters to your database. You’re also going to want to enlist the help of some PR professionals to get as much press coverage as you can!
Step 3: Think Outside the Catering Box
Since everyone loves a canape, and no one really knows how to say no to a free glass of champagne… creating an interesting menu for your guests could be a real game changer for your event. From quirky food trucks to modern twists on traditional cuisine, a theme throughout your product launch is the perfect way to unify brand identity and make those taste buds tingle.
Step 4: Get the Party Started
Since it’s all about making it ‘one to remember’, take advantage of your chosen venue space and amenities by hiring some entertainment that’s bound to get some shares on your guests Instagram stories. Whether you find a skilled DJ, musical act, or even a stand-up comedian, ensuring you enlist the help of some fun entertainment will keep your attendees excited throughout the whole night.
Step 5: End on a High
Now that you’ve nailed venue hire, your entertainment has created the coolest of atmospheres, and people are loving your product. What now? Keep on giving! Everyone loves a freebie, so giving away gifts or goodie bags at your event could just be the cherry on top. A perfect way to thank your attendees for coming, they’ll definitely walk out the door with a sweet taste in their mouth (although that could be down to the cocktails… ).
