Targeted Sampling Campaigns

Sampling campaigns are successful simply because it places your products right where your customers are.

That could be a stall at the end of an aisle in a large supermarket, in a university canteen, in a city centre shopping mall, a music festival, a sporting event or at a show at the NEC.

And there is research to back this up;

  • A study by Arbitron & Edison found that 35% of customers went on to buy the product after sampling, although other studies state the sampling-to-buy ratio much higher.
  • A 2017 survey by EventTrack found that 65% of consumers bought a product they had sampled at a specific event, with 78% saying that the reasons why they bought the product was because “they let me try it first”.
  • From the same survey, 58% of customers said they would buy the product again.

In other words, investing in sampling staff is a cost-effective means of raising not only brand awareness but sales too. And it seems that repeat custom could be on the cards too.

And yet, so many brands fail to invest in sampling and demonstration opportunities. Why not buck the trend and hire a team of samplers and demonstrators from NEC Exhibition Staff?
