  2. Event Marketing
  3. Experiential Marketing

There are three main benefits of hiring a experiential marketing agency:

Experiential marketing is a form of marketing that engages customers through branded experiences and live events. Experiential marketing is sometimes referred to as “engagement marketing” because audiences interact with a brand in a real-life situation. An example of experiential marketing is when Volkswagen turned a subway staircase into a giant piano to support its branding of “The Fun Theory.”

Companies should choose an experiential marketing agency based on its portfolio of work and the creativity it demonstrates in suggesting engagement marketing ideas for your business. Throw a couple challenges and scenarios to your shortlist of experiential marketing companies during intro calls and see how they respond.

We created a directory of experiential marketing companies to help you compare and connect with companies. Use client review ratings, services offered, and client focus to create a shortlist of experiential marketing companies. If you want personalized recommendations, share your project details with us.
