FUNDRAISING AND CHARITIES

FUNDRAISING AND CHARITIES

We love working with non-profit and not for profit organizations. While we would love to serve, sponsor, and work with each and every one of you, we receive requests on a daily basis. We came up with a win-win situation that would still provide a complimentary or highly discounted photo experience for you and your organization.
 
Our suggestion would be to reach out to individuals and companies who have expressed interest in donating/sponsoring or are already doing so. In essence, you could have one or multiple companies cover a portion or all of your photo expenses. When you reach out, pitching the possibility of branding opportunities with the photo booth is an excellent way to have one at your event. We provide many branding touch points that potential sponsors may want to take advantage of.
 
Branded Photos
Admit it, people love taking pictures and even more so when they can take home a physical copy. We design customized templates with different text and/or graphics (logos), so guests go home with branded photo strips or postcards that they hang on their fridge. This can be done for multiple sponsors.

Branded Social Media Messages
– Email
– Text Message
– Facebook
– Twitter
– Instagram
– Data Capture
 
Social Media Kiosks
With social media kiosks guests not only receive a print but can also instantly share it on social media. We offer the option to add a personal message to the photo when your guest shares it via the kiosk. For your sponsors/donors, we can include a custom message that might have #hashtags and/or @userids to generate more social media buzz or collect emails for data capture purposes.
 
Custom Banners
Custom Banners such as step & repeats provide a broad canvas for visual brand awareness at the event. Physically,  having a step and repeat with your client(s) logos as a photo booth backdrop can be an excellent way to attract sponsorship. We can have one or multiple companies logos printed onto the banner.
CUSTOM BACKDROP
 
Another thought – Is your event a ticketed one? Try including the cost of the photo booth in the ticket sales. Adding in a few extra dollars to each ticket is an easy way to generate funds to pay for your photo experience.

MICROSITES

WHY A MICROSITE?
 
After hundreds of events, we’ve realized that privacy issues and passwords tend to be problematic. Simply put, some people (including ourselves) just don’t remember their social media passwords. One of our aims is to eliminate password issues at the kiosk, because who can ever remember their Facebook password anyway? Many of us do NOT know our social media logins (and you may be nodding as you read this). Guests not knowing their password leads to a bottleneck at the sharing kiosk (which is why we sometimes recommend having more than one). You can eliminate this headache by only enabling email or text so that guests are presented with a preview and a link to the microsite. From the microsite and within the comforts of their own computers they will have the option of sharing to social media.
 
 
On the flip side, other users tend to have objections with entering their social media information. By creating a microsite and encouraging people to email or text their content we’ve resolved this issue. Besides, a staggering 98% of individuals would prefer to email or text their photo anyway.
MICROSITE SHARING STATISTICS copy
 
Also, a microsite can provide support to your brand and drive further awareness of products or services. Microsites help maximize the exposure of your event and provide a seamless experience for your guests. Since it is much like a web page, we can integrate logos, backgrounds, color schemes, etc.. Microsites are invaluable and an easy way to increase your reach beyond the event. We even see individuals still downloading and sharing their images weeks afterward.
 
Since the microsite is a web page, after all, one may harness the power of HTML to enhance the guest experience even further.
 
Things we’ve done previously include:
 
* Added a “Call to Action(s)”
* Embedded videos
* Google Analytics script to get more detailed analysis
* Additional branding
* Additional data capture and impressions
 
IS A MICROSITE RIGHT FOR YOU?
 
If you are looking to promote a particular campaign, new product, increase brand awareness, or just want more interaction in general then yes! Now that you have a clear understanding of a microsite and its importance why not have one created for your event?  Here at Splendid, we can help guide you to the best course of action in implementing one. We can create one for you, work with your team to create one or provide you with the necessary information to have your in-house team take care of it. The choice is yours on how you would like to handle the design, but if you would like to get get a move on it then contact us today to get started.

Great reasons on why you should use a photo experience for marketing and corporate events

PHOTO BOOTH FOR MARKETING

Visual marketing is no longer a suggestion, but vital to the success of any marketing strategy Whether it’s a photo booth, GIF or a picture snapped from your iPhone the power and value of visual content are impossible to ignore. The way people, especially the younger generation, consume content is forever changing. It is vital for you as a marketer or planner and us as a creative agency to adapt and stay relevant. There is no better time than now to start incorporating images into your social media strategy.

photo booth for corporate events

The statistics are eye-opening when it comes to the impact that photos and video play. Simply put, visual content is 40x more likely to be shared on social media than other types of content. Not only that, but photos showing faces get 38% more likes than photos not showing faces. Photo booth pictures and GIFs are the perfect kind of visual content that garners engagement and reaches audiences. Investing not only in a photo booth or experience, but the right strategy is a worthwhile cause. First off, set a goal for your event. Have this discussion beforehand, and you will know what to expect along with the myriad of capabilities you may have at your disposal. Some things to consider, but not mutually exclusive:

  1. Social Reach and Measurability What social platforms are most relevant to you? Do you need to measure it?
  2. Unique and Novel Photo Experience Are you looking for something to strictly act as entertainment?
  3. Brandability and Customization How customized and branded does the entire experience have to be for you or your client?
  4. Throughput Is it imperative to get as many people in and out as fast as possible? Time, guest count, type of media, and the number of booths will play a role.
  5. Incentivizing a Call To Action Is there anything else the user should do? (Example: Download this app or subscribe to this newsletter)
  6. Lead Generation / Lead Capture (data capture) Do you want to collect emails, phone numbers, or need custom reporting? (Onsite and post-event engagement)

With the use of a photo booth for marketing, you will create a content shortcut for yourself. It is a lot easier to produce photo content at volume than to create the equivalent text-based content. A photo experience can create the type of material that helps stay at the top of your customer’s minds. We at Splendid Studio have customized and curated custom social media packages that fit a variety of needs. These type of packages include:

  • Custom social media messages
  • Microsites
  • Sharing Software Interfaces
  • Photo Booth Software Interfaces
  • Post Event Reports (analytics, web analytics, engagement)

Do you have an event that could use elements of our social media package? We’ll personally work with you to set up a goal for your event. CONTACT US and see how we can best utilize a photo experience to make your event a success.
