What is Brand Experience?

A brand experience is the experiences you have with the people that interact with your brand. It is literally everything you have seen and heard - or even felt, smelt or tasted - about a brand. Most commonly Brand Experiences tend to be an event or live interaction with a brand.

What does a promotional staffing agency do?

A promotional staffing agency is here to help you get the most out of your marketing campaign. They have a large pool of amazing professionals who are on hand to use their skills and experience when needed to promote your brand. The staffing agency will select the best possible candidates to match your needs and will take care of everything staff related from A to Z. They will make sure your promotion goes as smoothly as possible.

What costs do hiring promotional staff incur?

When hiring promotional staff, like in many other industries, a few elements are involved. This can include: - Staff wages (these include allowance for holiday pay, NI, tax, pension contribution and payroll costs) - Staff travel – if your promotion is out of major metropolitan areas - Agency management fees

Why do I need promotional staff?

Whether you are planning a simple one day event or something more complex (several days and/or several locations), whether you are a National brand or a small business, hiring promotional staff is always a good idea. They are experienced professionals who are trained in engaging with customers, demonstrating different products and generally represent your brand. Promo staff are generally outgoing, well-spoken, upbeat and always ready to give 100% of themselves. They will help bring new costumers, spread the word around and present your brand in the best way possible.
