Increase Early Bird Ticket Sales With A Promotional Product

  So you are hosting an event, what is a sure fire ways get people to register early? Early bird registrations help in planning and saving money in the long run because of more accurate ordering of supplies, meals, etc.  A knowledge of the numbers expected also decreases stress in planning for rooms, layouts and signage. Not having early bird registration makes you essentially work in the dark, and not knowing how many will be coming makes it impossible to plan accordingly. Obviously, the more individuals you can get to sign up ahead of the event, the simpler your day will be! But how?  One of the best ways to do this is by offering a product as an incentive to register early for an event. This will increase your event’s registrations because of the perceived increase in value with the combination of the gift and the product.  People will perceive that they will lose a bonus gift if they register later. This is an amazing motivator, and will ensure people take the time to sign up promptly. Nervous about making the decision of what promotional product will be best?  Work with your promotional product consultant in order to choose your perfect item, and set the registration deadline so you have enough time to order the exact quantity and have the product on hand at check-in. This will allow you to please your clients that have taken the initiative to register for the gift.     Check out some of these products to get an idea of what might be best for your event…. Cube Shape Portable Speakers, Full Color Digital: This speaker allows your guests to enjoy their favorite music wherever they want.
