That’s what experiential marketing is all about. Of course, unlike Google, you probably don’t have millions of dollars to test out on an experiential marketing campaign. So, how do you know make sure those marketing dollars get put to good use and that your experiential marketing tactic will be a success? Not sure if experiential marketing is right for your brand? Entrepreneur: How has experiential marketing helped your business? Everything from the way you talk to clients, to what they experience visually, to the feeling they walk away with.

From guerilla marketing tactics to tapping into the world of influencers, it can be hard to stand out from your competitors today. Companies are having to find unique and out-there marketing strategies to get their brand names known. One popular method that’s picking up traction is experiential marketing.
