Creative communications are vital to any meeting, event, or incentive program, let’s talk about how to make them matter. People are exposed to between 6,000 and 10,000 commercial messages a day – that’s hundreds upon hundreds of messages coming your way every hour of every day! How can you create messaging that possibly breaks through? Here are a few ways to give it your best shot.

Know your audience

One key to creating relevant communication is personalization, and the only way to do that is to truly define and understand your audience…put yourself in their shoes… find out what matters to them.

Theming is critical

Your event’s theme should be unique, ownable, and repeatable. It’s easy to say, but it’s certainly not easy to create! Telling the right story with your theme can make all the difference — just be sure to keep it clear, concise, and credible.

Consistent, compelling engagement

Ensure that you are communicating with your audience before, during, and after your event, to inform, inspire, and keep the momentum going long after the event occurs.

An approachable tone

As long as it works for your brand, keeping your copy in a conversational tone will it make it much more appealing and engaging for your audience. (In fact, you should think of your copy as a conversation, keeping it fun and lively.)

Fresh tactics

Consider using unique communication channels and devices to stay connected with your audience. Does anybody really pay attention to the email onslaught anymore?

The greatest program or event in the world will not succeed without creative communications support. The right program marketing campaign will not only drive interest and participation, it can even help your company increase sales.
