So you have seen the cars and trucks riding around town with a wrapped logo of some sort.  Often these autos are filled with loads of samples and it the job of the promotional teams in the cars to go from location to location, giving out free items to help promote the product. For instance, think of Red Bull.. Their teams ride around in little cars giving out samples to people that look thirsty or tired. A brilliant idea! Do you have a product that you would like to get into the consumers hands? If so, have you ever thought of trying this out for your product? 9Charleston, SC is a great place to do such a type of an event. One of the main reason for this the ports that are located in Charleston.  Hundreds of cruise ships fill the dock each year, bringing millions of happy tourists. These tourists are confined to a small area. Since the historical area is a very small place, they are pretty cramped into the city.  . IN addition to the city goers and shoppers, there is usually  a 2-3 hr wait to drive about 5 miles to get to the beach. .Charleston was ranked the number one place to get married recently. So,  If you are looking for a new area to do sampling events, Charleston is the place.  Charleston offers a great opportunity for sunblock companies giving out samples, drink or beverage companies to give out samples (because it gets hot), Fishing and kayak companies, or even fishing lure companies. Charleston is a fishing mecca! The ideas and products are endless! If you need help with auto promotions feel free to send us a email. We would love to help!

 

Recently we provided event teams for Rachel Ray’s booth at the world famous Charleston Food and Wine Festival.

The In’s and Out’s of Comic Con San Diego 2017

Comic Con San Diego is the Largest Comic convention in the world that takes place every year in sunny San Diego. It brings in Comic fans, art fans, and culture fans alike into one city to celebrate all things from new television shows, movies, comics, and art and lets everyone celebrate together in every way possible. This year, it takes place July 20th- July 23rd.

Comic Con isn’t just for those in the convention center either like most of these shows that take place every year. At the San Diego International Comic Con, The entertainment flows to the outdoors so everyone can partake in the excitement. I have personally had some of the most fun in some of the events going on outside.

Originally SDCC began in 1970 and it was primarily comic books and science fiction/fantasy related film, television, and similar popular arts in the time however the convention has since now grown to include a range of popular culture and entertainment in television and movies across all genres, not just comics. This includes horror, animation, toys, collectibles, card games, video games and more. Comic Con has even now been known to create special edition collectibles that are only available at Comic Con and can only be picked up second hand by everyone else who did not attend.

Comic Con is known for all of the special events that take place during the weekend. These include special panels, previews for upcoming feature films, review sessions for upcoming comics or video games, workshops for comics, and more. At night, many events include evening parties held by some of the upcoming film and game teams (some even open to the public if they get special tickets handed out at the convention), award ceremonies, costume contests for those in Cosplay, short film views, and feature length movie sessions that may not have a full distribution deal.

Many people inside the convention space also get to go experience all the exhibitor events and activities. The comic book writers and artists set up booths where many people can go and see their spaces and speak to them in person. This is called Artists’ Alley. You may even be able to walk out of here with a little personal sketch to call your own, all while having a conversation with your favorite artist.

Many major TV networks set up booths and people get to experience a scare space and up front time with the dead, like on the Walking Dead booth, which is a top hit year after year. This booth even has the cast come to it to do the panel instead of having it in a separate room, which is always a hit. You can even see many of the movie memorabilia that you would never think you could see anywhere else. In 2015, when the Batman vs. Superman movie was filming, they had the Batmobile out for all to see up close and personal.

In the back area, you can pick up those collectibles you are after and get some that you will never find outside of Comic Con. You can even get a steal depending on when you are in the booth. Want a comic you cant find in your own state? You could probably find it here.

Comic Con San Diego brings out the young and the old and it brings out everyone just looking to have a great time. There are activities there through out the days and nights alike. If there was one major event in the US that I would recommend anyone go to if they got a chance, SDCC would be it. There is something for everyone.

When your promotion company asks for ‘Business Casual’

What does Business Casual mean?

“This one is the murkiest for our customers and for other people we speak to. Part of the problem is that there are so many trends that are so casual,” Dorie Smith, cofounder of women’s workwear brand Of Mercer, recently said to Business Insider.

Organizing Street Teams

I hear it all the time. A new client calls and asks a ton of questions; then they say the following to us: “Sounds easy enough! We’ll just do this ourselves.
Every single time I hear this, I make a note to myself of the date this client called. Without fail, I will generally hear back 2-4 weeks later, with the headaches and sometimes horror stories, of how poorly their event was executed. Unfortunately DIY event planning often falls apart before it even has the chance to be executed at all.
I urge our new clients to take consider the opportunity cost of using a DIY approach to their marketing plan as it pertains to guerrilla marketing and event staffing. Consequently, by attempting a DIY plan, you run the risk of the need to ‘double up’ on the activation to get the results  you seek.
In general hiring an event staffing agency costs less than attempting to create the event within your organization after you take into account the expenses related to time from alternate support departments.

Furthermore, here are the primary reasons you should hire an experienced agency over taking a ‘DIY’ approach. 

  1. We handle all screening, vetting and hiring of our brand ambassadors. We use the same brand ambassadors over and over so we know their individual work ethic and have formed professional working relationships with them. What this translates into is: They trust us. It doesn’t sound like much, but it gives them the peace of mind to focus on their work – getting your activation off the ground.
  2. We have been in business over 15 years. We have a strong internal database of knowledgeable and experienced staff.  That is priceless and it’s on another level compared to social media or using a site like ‘craigslist’.
  3. We assign an account manager to each client (at no additional charge) that will be your one go-to person for the duration of your event; much easier than communicating with everyone on the team!
  4. We handle all legal paperwork and accounting procedures for each staff member brought on, you’ll never have to worry about your staff calling you about paychecks or event specific logistics.
  5. We pay our event staff quickly, with a 2-3 week turnaround. They will not be forced to wait and make their ways through your accounting department’s NET30-45 day system.
  6. We take the stress out of executing your event. We know the procedures and have a positive reputation in the industry, ensuring only the best brand ambassadors represent you in the field.

If you’re still not convinced, or you’re READY to book your event, give us a call! You’ll be surprised how affordable hiring an agency is. Let us get to work for you!
