Keys to MPA’s Success in Event Marketing and Expo Media

Establish Clear KPIs and Performance Metrics

For all events, it's crucial to establish a clearly defined set of KPIs and performance metrics.

Digital Marketing Strategies

    1. Define Target Audience: Identify the target audience, how and when they consume media, what media they consume, and when they will most engage with the message.
    2. Utilise Data: Use 1st and 3rd party data to create ‘like’ audience pools.
    3. Campaign Lifespan Analysis: Ensure the campaign duration is optimal. Too long, and the budget is diluted, and urgency evaporates; too short, and you miss the consideration list.
    4. Optimised Landing Pages: Set up landing pages correctly with content and information flow, tracking through analytics.
    5. Creative Consistency: Ensure creative is on brand and on message. Use multiple ad sets across Video, Native, and Display to create urgency.
    6. A/B Testing: Test and retire underperforming creatives.
    7. Retargeting Strategies: Have a suite of creatives for retargeting and set a frequency cap in line with your budget.
    8. Daily Optimisation: Report and optimise daily. Assess what’s working, what’s not, and what tweaks can increase performance. Monitor time on page and the value of traffic.

Offline Channel Strategies

  • Media Channel Alignment: Identify media channels that align with the event date to avoid wasting valuable media dollars.
  • Optimal Campaign Length: Determine the optimal time in-market for the campaign.
  • Creative Assets: Assess what creative assets are available.
  • Proximity Media: Consider proximity media placement.
  • Low-Cost Mass Media: For consumer events, identify low-cost mass media options, including TV, Radio, Outdoor, and Transit.
    Promotional Opportunities: Identify promotional, competition, and PR opportunities to extend reach.
