Marketing Monday Tip: Experiential Marketing

Artist Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, used iOS Airdrop at Coachella to share his Adidas collaboration with festival-goers. Those who accepted the Airdrop received a free pair of his unreleased shoes to wear at the concert all weekend. Glover and Adidas are only two of the many who are taking advantage of experiential marketing.


Brands are going above and beyond to connect and engage with consumers. Nowadays, consumers value experiences over products. From Chanel’s Le Rouge Pop-Up to Refinery29’s 29Rooms funhouse, experiential marketing is transforming the industry landscape.


Consider how your property can bring guests into rooms in a new and creative way. Whether that be as extravagant as choosing people at random for a free night’s stay or as simple as incorporating 360-degree views of the property onto your website, be sure to set a clear experiential strategy beforehand. When thinking about incorporating this into your next marketing campaign, keep these tips in mind:

  • Think about what your guests want.
  • Set out a distinct goal.
  • Consider available and appropriate resources.
  • Deliver with precision.
