Do you or your Clients ever run events for customers, prospects or employees?
Booking delegates on to conferences and seminars – and then getting them to turn up – can be a challenge at the best of times. But if they are well planned and executed, they can be an extremely effective way of engaging with prospective customers.
Bluestone has many years of experience in event booking strategy, delegate engagement, getting bums on seats, post-event follow up and sales support.
As a small and agile agency, we can mobilise and scale up at very short notice, and cost-effectively in comparison to most of the larger outbound contact centres.
So if you’re up against the clock, don’t panic – we can quickly get a team in place, trained up and on the phones to make sure you maximise the ROI of your event.
And if it’s your Client’s event, having and experienced and trusted partner on board is a great opportunity for you to strengthen your relationship with them and potentially provide an additional revenue stream for your business.
For one of our Clients (a leading UK investment bank) Q1 is typically a very busy time, with multiple corporate events planned over the months of January and February. This year, they over-exceeded themselves and having booked several venues realised that they had a shortfall in attendees.
At exceptionally short notice, Bluestone was able to put an experienced team in place to promote the benefits of the events to a list of IFAs; an exercise which resulted in an additional 40 attendees and a return of £1.3m in sales.
