Printed media is still an indispensable factor in any event promotion strategy. It’s one of the best ways of reaching the general public and those who may not have otherwise heard about your event. Here are a few examples of how and why you should invest in printed media for your event!
In the age of social media, you would think that business cards no longer have their place. Yet when it comes to promoting your next event or networking whilst at your own event they can be invaluable.
They are incredibly important for any form of person-to-person networking. Business card aesthetics are incredibly valuable for company representation and 72% of people still judge businesses from their cards
Event flyers are one of the most traditional, creative and interesting ways to attract people to your event. While they’re talked about less thanks to the dominance of digital channels, they still play a vital part in many organizer’s event promotion strategies.
There are several ways you can go about distributing your event flyers to maximize your exposure:
- Local shops and services
- Direct Mail
- Door drops
- Street distribution
There are a variety of ways to communicate with your target market, but one of the most beneficial is by using large scale posters that can clearly display your message. When used correctly, posters can catch the eyes of people and make them aware of an event they wouldn’t otherwise have known about. This powerful ability to stick in people’s minds can have huge advantages for events looking to create brand awareness.
Banners are a great promotional tool as they are instantly noticeable because of their size or their color, which draws the eye. In busy areas, banners can be used to separate your event from the rest of the crowd. People have been trained to associate large banners with an exciting event. They have been used throughout history at fairs, markets and many other locations. People know that when they see a banner, something is going on that deserves their attention. Which why they are perfect for advertising your event!
Stickers are an inexpensive and easy way to get your event and brand out there. They are perfect for guerrilla marketing your event (Guerrilla marketing is an advertisement strategy in which a company uses unconventional communications in order to promote a product or service.) You can use them anywhere you think will get peoples attention or hand them out for others to share for you.
For all of these items we can customize them to any size and specification you may need, with more options on paper finishes and sizes upon request. From there we can create a bespoke package to meet the needs of your event!
- All artwork is to be supplied by you. If you do require artwork to be created we can look into this upon inquiry.
- We can provide you with templates but it will be your responsibility to ensure the quality and sizes are all correct.

Social media moves fast, but nowhere is it faster than on Twitter. If you’re promoting events on Twitter, it means your marketing strategy needs to evolve quickly too.
Twitter may be one of the most challenging networks for social media event marketing, but it’s also one of the most rewarding.
Facebook isn’t just the world’s favourite social media platform, it’s also a powerful events hub. With 490 million people using Facebook events every month, it’s the discovery site many people turn to when they want to find out what’s going on in their area.
With new social networks being created regularly, LinkedIn can be a platform that’s often forgotten about and underused. However, it can be an incredibly powerful tool for marketing your event – especially if you’re aware of many of the platform’s hidden tools that don’t seem to get the attention they deserve.
