Sarah Ball, client strategy director at Balls2 Marketing & social media expert for the glazing industry talks about FIT Show and how to make the most out of your visit on social media.
It’s that time again – FIT Show 2019 is upon us.
This year, the theme for FIT Show is ‘Be a part of FIT’, and what better way to do this than getting involved on social media.
If you haven’t already, make sure you let people know you’ll be at the NEC from 21-23 May by announcing on social as well as posting your registration link.
Once you’re there, it’s a great opportunity to post some live content. Live posts are always a hit on social as they give your followers an insight of what you’re up to in real time. Post photos of who and what will be on the stand, record yourself walking from the entrance to your stand to show people how to find you or even go live on Facebook or Instagram for a few minutes.
Visitors can get involved too.
One of the things so many people love about FIT Show is that it’s a great place to catch up with other people in the industry. If you bump into any industry friends or visit your customer or suppliers’ stand, make sure you grab a quick photo or video and post it online, remembering to tag them in. – and FIT Show too.
The same applies for if you attend any seminars. If you visit a talk that you found interesting or inspiring, shout about it on social and tag the company or speakers are tagged in – they’ll really appreciate your comments.
Lastly, don’t forget to hashtag #FITShow2019, and keep a bank of all of your photos and videos from your time at FIT Show – they will be great #ThrowbackThursdays in the weeks to follow.
Balls2 Marketing is exhibiting on stand D30 and we are hosting a PiGs party on Tuesday evening, so make sure you join us, get a selfie and tag us in.
