A virtual photo booth (VFP) brings together your event, staff, guests and potential customers together for an enjoyable online virtual photo booth experience, all in one place. In today’s technology-driven world, a VFP is the perfect solution for virtually any corporate promotional activity. VFPs can be used for a range of events, including trade shows, product launches, seminars, fairs, meetings, training sessions and conferences. By providing attendees with a unique online experience, a VFP allows you to capture, display and share your images with anyone around the world.
Many companies are using VPPs to create exciting and unique virtual photo booths experiences. The idea behind these events is simple: rather than just printing out pictures at the end of an event or conference, attendees are able to quickly share their photos with family and friends via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. A VPP will often contain a “selfies” feature that allows people to post a picture using a smartphone, tablet or computer. The system then merges the image with the URL of the social media site that created the image. For example, if an attendee uses Twitter to share a photo of the event, the URL to that photo will be posted by the VPP on the Twitter timeline.
Another use of a VPP is as a marketing tool for events. You may want to feature some special offers or discounts for your guests or offer a “membership” discount to encourage attendees to become members of your online event. A virtual photo booth can be integrated into your online event to allow attendees to take a self-guided tour through your facility.
If you have a guest speaker come to your business, a virtual photo booth is an excellent way to engage your audience and help them to remember your event. During the presentation, ask attendees to “tag” themselves in their photos and share the image on social media. This will encourage your guests to share their images with their networks and get others to know about your event.
The purpose of a VPP is not to sell to your guests, but to create a lasting memory that will last long after the event is over. Providing attendees with customised backgrounds, using unique software and creating a sense of camaraderie are other ways to benefit from a virtual photo booth. These are all ways to connect with your guests while taking them on a trip down memory lane at the same time. The images posted on your VPP could also act as promotional items for future events as well.
Using a virtual photo booth is a great way to generate buzz and gain attention for future events. Creating unique content, allowing attendees to upload their own images and providing a chance to view digital props will help to generate interest in your event. However, it’s important to remember that you need to ensure you don’t use this opportunity to sell your attendees or share confidential information. The use of multiple experiences, unique backgrounds and promotional items can all help to increase customer engagement and create memories that will be remembered.
