Designers are usually in high demand these days for just about everything. Web design, exhibit design, hair design; you name it. But, one thing that tends to get a bit lost in all of this design focus is the importance of the written word. When we’re talking about marketing your brand and your company, we’re talking about copywriting. Good design can really do wonders for your brand image, but the best way to communicate to your audience is to speak to them. And if you can’t do that verbally for every single one (we hope you have a larger audience than that), you need to rely on copywriting to reach them.
Copywriting is the art of writing to sell. Not just to sell products, but to sell your brand and your image to your potential customers. To do that, you need to make sure that the written materials at your next event or trade show are as compelling and engaging as possible. You should make sure to contract with some good copywriters, just as you will likely hire a graphic designer or exhibit design specialist. Design really helps to convey brand message and a lot more subtle queues, but there isn’t anything that can really match effective copywriting for getting your message across and really reaching your audience.
To effectively market yourself, you need to make sure that you have quality copywriting on all of your marketing materials and display graphics at your next event. You should also make sure that your PR materials are written well, because they will be an important representation of your company. In concentrating on written materials, you will design effective marketing and promotional items that, combined with effective design, will allow you to most effectively convey your brand message to your target audience.
Don’t forget the importance of the written word on your display graphics and as part of your exhibit design at your next trade show. The more effective your written communications, the more effectively you will be able to communicate with and engage your target audience, and that is a major part of being at a trade show.
