Reasons for giving out virtual swag bags at your events

Many companies are using virtual swag bags as a way to give out freebies, coupons, and promotions. These can be sent through email or the company’s social media page. Companies have found that this is an effective way to collect contact information from their customers and potential clients without being intrusive.

Virtual swag bag giveaways also provide a great opportunity for brands to stand out among other online vendors in the same space by offering something unique and memorable with each giveaway.  The key is making sure that your virtual items are relevant to your target audience so they will use them later on down the line after the event has ended. This article will explore what are some reasons for giving out virtual swag bags at your events.

They’re completely customizable and simple to setup

A virtual event bag is completely customizable to your needs. You’re in complete control over what’s included in it and how your attendees interact with the bag and its contents. And you decide when your audience members get their event bags — you can give them access before, during, or after the proceedings!

Event organizers will love that they can easily design branded digital swag without the hassle of sourcing, organizing, and distributing thousands of pens or other physical gifts. There’s no worrying about running out of gifts while event planners have to deal with a surplus when not used at all!

Attendees will find these useful

A digital gift bag is a perfect solution for today’s busy people. Physical events provide us with so many distractions, and lugging around a physical event bag can be one more hassle to add on top of it all. With this new technology, attendees don’t have to worry about carrying bags at all! In fact, they won’t even know that their company has given them an awesome present until they open up an email or visit your webpage after attending your conference!

They are eco-friendly

Virtual events are a sustainable way to connect and collaborate with colleagues, friends, or the general public. The CO2 emissions from in-person meetings can contribute up to 40% of what is produced by an individual person per year. Virtual swag bags help alleviate this problem because attendees will not dispose of them into landfills after they receive their gifts at your event’s virtual gift exchange.

They offer data that can be tracked

Digital bags are a great way to track how your guests interact with the goods they bring home from events. Event hosts and sponsors can find out when digital bags were opened, what was purchased with discount coupons or virtual gift cards, which discount codes were used most often, and much more. That kind of data is invaluable for future event planning.

As we saw above, virtual event bags have several advantages over the traditional physical goodie bag and are more convenient for attendees. The production process is also easier which means you can make a swag bag with less hassle. Plus, your next event will be even better because of it too; people love getting gifts regardless if they’re digital or not so don’t let that stop you from including this in your strategy to delight them.
