AMA & Score Promotions: Influence Consumers Through Experiential Marketing

ama__Facebook

Score Promotions has a proud to be partnered with the American Marketing Association – Toronto Chapter. It is Score’s mission to inspire the world’s brands to discover the possibilities promotional marketing creates. The American Marketing Association provides an amazing opportunity to connect industry leading marketing professionals and their brands to unlimited marketing potential. Promotional Marketing is a key leader in maximizing brand awareness and strengthening consumer relations.

There is no doubt we are living in a world where everyone is connected, and consumers are aware of this digital phenomenon. In a world where social media, digital communication, and connectivity allow us to express desires, needs, and feelings at any given moment, the marketing landscape for brands changes completely. To maintain a high level of brand awareness from a desired demographic, no matter how big or small – it is imperative to keep consumers loyal and happy! Score Promotions is here to open the doors of the promotional world and help brands create opportunities for strong consumer-brand relationships.

In addition to supplying the AMA Toronto Chapter and its’ members with custom promotional opportunities and ability to purchase products at a VIP price, Score Promotions will be providing on-site consulting and product demonstrations at a select number of AMA Toronto events.

Last Wednesday May 8th, Score Promotions took part in the AMA Event: Influence Consumers with Experiential Marketing. Speakers included Matt Lewis from Momentum Worldwide, Claire Adams from Notable Life, Mike Mallory from Lumency Inc., and Neil Covant from IMI International. All touched upon how the experiential marketing approach to brands and advertising is the leading source of conversion as a result of ability to have 1-1 meaningful conversations from consumers. Below are our top takeaways.

1. What’s what brands DO that matters.

The “do” in marketing has involved in the sense than experience and event are no longer synonymous. In order to “do” as a marketer you must embed what matters most to your consumers into your marketing messaging.

2. From advertising to connecting. 

Our job as marketers is to bring consumers closer to the things they care about and put our brand at the forefront of that connectivity through authentic sponsorships & partnerships.

3. Make life better. From Utility to Inspiration; from Materialism to Meaning. 

People reward and align with brands that are useful and improve their everyday lifestyles. Humans value utility and what makes your life easier. Now, people expect utility – brands need to make people feel better as well. More than 80% of people are searching to eliminate anxieties and break out of their routines. Purpose based marketing such as campaigns by Nike, Adidas, Chevrolet, etc. inspire consumers to do something authentic. The question of every campaign should be “are you helping your audience connect?”.

Experiential Marketing enables brands to connect their consumers on a scale larger than ever before. We believe that promotional marketing is a tool that can be leverages to continue authentic consumer feelings with your brand after the experience occurs. We at Score are proud and excited to introduce innovative, creative, and custom promotional strategies to those passionate about the possibilities of marketing. The marketing industry is boundless in terms of it’s strength and power to sway driving business decisions – those who understand this are already ahead of the game.

Stay tuned for more Score Promotions insights from AMA – Toronto Chapter Events!

Score attends DX3 Retail, Marketing, and Technology Tradeshow:

At Score, we pride ourselves in constantly staying up to date and educated on how we can best help your company enhance brand awareness and marketing efforts. At the DX3 tradeshow, Score had the privilege of listening to multiple speakers who are experts in the field of marketing, retail, and technological commerce. These industry leaders shared insight on how their companies achieve success and think outside of the box. We would like to share three key takeaways from this tradeshow that we believe can help your company #Score2Win.

  1. Know your brand and company values

Bringing it back to basics, the importance of knowing your brand and its’ values are key when trying to figure out the best way to market yourselves in this hyper-competitive society. Axel Schwan, Global CMO of Tim Hortons, stresses that understanding your brand values is the key to strong filtering for marketing execution. This will ensure you are building the right bridge to connect with your clients and consumers. When you embrace your company values, you are differentiating yourself and providing business value to your clients. Values are crucial to establishing a positive relationship with your target audience. Marketing these values and displaying with full transparency creates a culture of openness and information sharing that consumers appreciate.

  1. Focus on enhancing engagement

It is proven that engagement has the largest relationship to conversion. Creativity boosts engagement and contributes to 47% of advertising. Utilizing this knowledge, we recommend your company places a heavy focus on innovation and differentiating themselves in a unique way. The use of unique swag products to market your company will increase brand awareness, recognition, and engagement. Rob Scott, Marketing and Research VP of Contobox, states that, “creating higher engagement ads increase brand awareness significantly.” The four elements that were highlighted to make an engaging experience are: elevation, pride, insight, and connection. By focusing on these four elements when constructing your marketing tactics, you can assure higher engagement for your company and boost conversion rates.

  1. Emotional connection

Building an emotional connection with your audience is a notion that has now become a necessity. Connecting on an emotional level through your company’s marketing strategies creates customer loyalty and pride. Consumers want to support and identify with a brand that has positively impacted them. The key is understanding your target audience in order to effectively communicate in a way that speaks directly to them. This allows an emotional connection to be established and prompts engagement between the company and consumer relationship. Emotions play a huge role in decision making, so being inclusive is vital to a successful implementation strategy.

In the end, knowing your brand’s values, creating engaging ads, and focusing on building an emotional connection with your audience will strongly influence your company’s success. Score’s talented specialists work passionately with your company to help elevate your brand creatively and contribute to your success.

Once activated, the data can be transferred between the two in proximity without the need for internet connection. In layman’s terms, you can scan something and get instant access to personalized content.

This technology enhances the experience of the user and can boost sales as it is a noninvasive way to inform and persuade individuals. Consumers can talk directly with brands via their products when the NFC chip is scanned on product packaging.

NFC technology can be leveraged in the promotional marketing world by driving awareness and increasing interaction. It can be used to: make payments, reservations, direct to a website for information or video, as well as link social pages such as Facebook and Twitter.
