The IPA Bellwether Report – What Did We Learn?
The IPA Bellwether Report looks into the marketing spend intentions across the UK, with the latest report looking into Q2 2022.
So what can we learn from this report? Well, we know that now isn’t the time to relax your marketing efforts; around a quarter (24.2%) of companies raised their marketing expenditure during Q2.
There was a key driver to this growth in marketing — events. As daily life continues its recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, companies’ confidence in organising in-person events is returning to a ‘normal’ level. Events spending saw a rise of +22.2% according to the report, the strongest-performing Bellwether category by some margin.
Events are once again an excellent way for firms to relaunch their brands in a post-pandemic world. Don’t fall behind.
Events in a Post-Pandemic World
With events back on the up, there’s a chance they’ll be more impactful than ever. After experiencing much through our screens during the national lockdowns, face-to-face interactions now seem to hold more meaning. COVID-19 made many of us appreciate the importance of human connection, and events are no different.
Events are a great way to build business connections and promote your brand, — and there’s a momentum you should take advantage of. With events on hold for so long, people are now remembering how effective they can be.
There’ll be many businesses at your company's events with the same intent — to grow their brand. That’s why you need to stand out from the crowd.
Events and exhibitions give you a great chance to:
- Add credibility to your brand
- Gain brand exposure
- Interact with your audience and other businesses
- Introduce new products or services
- Market to new clients and customers
Brilliant exhibit printing can help you achieve these goals more effectively. Whether it’s a brochure promoting your products, flashy business cards or a bespoke exhibition stand, quality print can help your brand stand out. Here’s how…
Showcasing Your Product
By highlighting your products or services in print form, you’ll be able to supply potential new customers or clients with a tangible, professional message. A unique brochure or poster could separate your product from another and, with a QR code, you can convert face-to-face meetings to a visit to your website.
Educating Your Audience
You know your product or service best and print is a great way to educate potential customers about the benefits your business can bring to their lives.
Even if you don’t close deals or sales on the day, print is long-lasting. Handing your audience a tangible message means they’ll have a takeaway that details all the great things about your product and how to get in touch with your business.
Print’s Suitability for Events
Print and events go hand-in-hand. People enjoy having something to hold rather than looking at something on a screen or smartphone. With brochures and flyers, there’s no need to wait for something to download; just simply take it from the stand and have a look. Plus, if the flyer is of high quality, your business will look better as a result.
