The challenge :-
A UK-based company specializing in Christmas-themed
corporate events wanted to encourage its customers re-book
for the following year.
These large-scale events were attended by up to 1200 guests
from various different companies and typically only 20% of
attendees would rebook for the following year.
There were two key challenges – firstly, to increase the
number of re-bookings and secondly, to gather useful
information on other types of events that could be used for
future marketing campaigns.
The event organizer of each company attending was sent a
personalized postcard with a photo of their group at the
previous year’s event.
The postcard also contained a call to action to visit a
personalized URL .
This led the event organizer to a unique landing page that
contained two more pictures of their group at the event,
details of the next year’s event, an online booking facility,
plus a free gift for the organizer.
There was also a survey page to gather more information
about any future requirements such as team building days,
corporate hospitality and marketing events.
50. Results :-
84% of people visited their personalised
URL(uniform resource locater).
56% rebooked the event for the following year
(almost three times more then the previous year.)
Significantly increased database and knowledge
of prospects for other types of events.
