Social Media Campaign

For Tradeshow – With Direct Mail

This Social Media campaign was designed by Hypno to generate pre-show excitement, and to drive traffic at the show for our client. It also served to help brand the client to show attendees, creating a consistent branding message, and also to create social media presence for the client, as a side benefit, outside of the show.

Posted to the various social media sites using hootsuite account for management. Posted to 2 Linked-In accounts, and 1 Facebook, and 1 Twitter account.

Direct Mail – Postcard

Sent to all registered attendees via mailing list purchased from the Tradeshow:

Direct Mail

Sent about 3 weeks before the show, the direct mail postcard offers an enticement to come to see CMG at the tradeshow.

A Special Registration Page was also set up on our client’s website to collect Pre-show signups:

Pre-Show Social Media Teasers:


These two social media teasers were sent at 2 weeks before, and 1 week before the show.


At the show we scheduled 3 times a day to post to Social Media, once in the morning, just before lunch, and near the last hour of the show that day. Some after show postings also went out.
