The New Trade Shows: Using Buttons At A Hybrid Trade Show

A graphic of someone working a booth at a trade show with a small crowd around them.

Trade shows have been around for quite some time. This past year, we have seen many changes in how things are done, including trade shows. Virtual events have become the new in-person. As we work towards getting back to normal life, hybrid events have started becoming more popular as well. With hybrid events, there are many positives that can come out of them. Using buttons at a hybrid trade show is helpful in getting and keeping visitors’ attention to your booth. For those visiting your booth online, it can be a little more tricky

Reaching A Large Audience

When trade shows were all in-person, there would be an issue with the number of people that would be able to attend. If it was necessary for an attendee to travel to the event, that can be very time-consuming. Some people don’t have the time to travel to all the trade shows. With hybrid shows, this gives those unable to make it in-person a chance to still attend the event from wherever they are located. 

Buttons are a product that can help you reach that large audience you would be dealing with. Handing out buttons with your product or a specific design on them will help pull people into your booth. They also can continue pulling people in after sending the online attendees their very own button. The button is also a low-cost promotional product, handing them out to a large group of people won’t put a big dent in your pockets. 

Crowd Control

Even though more events are starting back up again, not everyone is comfortable being around big groups of people quite yet. Having the hybrid option allows a sense of control in that area. Being able to split up a group of people as big as the group that would normally attend a trade show makes the event easier to handle for those running it and would create ease for those uncomfortable.

Creating buttons to display to those coming to your booth that you have been vaccinated or are still trying to social distance is a good use for them. Keeping the audience up to date on how you and your other booth members are handling this situation. Buttons are something that is easy but can have a big impact in this way

Promotional Products

Promotional products are big in the world of trade shows. Every booth you would go to has some kind of product with the company name. Having a smaller in-person crowd can help ensure that everyone who comes to your booth or walks by gets one. Buttons stand out more than a pen and have the capability of being bigger and easier to read.

Using buttons at a hybrid trade show can work for both the in-person and online crowd. For those attending the event online, they too can get a button. Collecting a mailing list of the attendees and sending them your button can help continue the interaction after the trade show to remind the visitor of your business or products. 

Face To Face Interaction

With a hybrid event, you are still getting some face-to-face interaction with those attending in person. This type of interaction is more impactful than over a screen. Even though you still will be having guests attend via computer, the small group of individuals that choose to attend will be able to make those connections again.

It’s easier to have a conversation in person about something you are trying to sell to others. A hybrid event takes some of the pressure of getting your product across to people by being able to show them the product in real life. With that being said it is still important to devise a plan on including the online group and make their experience as similar to the in-person group as possible.

With hybrid events on the rise, it’s important to have your game plan figured out. Knowing who will be monitoring the online group of people and who will be speaking with those who are in-person. It is also important to plan out how the people attending online will be able to receive their promotional button. Keeping both crowds engaged and interested can be done by using buttons at a hybrid trade show.

How Custom Buttons Can Be Used for Marketing

If you have ever seen someone walking down the street wearing a custom button pin, you have probably wondered what it’s for and what it says. Being able to Express Yourself is the biggest appeal of buttons, and what better way than by customizing your own! They stand out from the rest, and when someone wears a custom button pin, you know they have something to say to the world.

We are Hard at Work Making Custom Button Pins and Magnetic Buttons!

What is a A “pin-back button”, “pin button”, “ button pin”, “tin pin” or “button badge”?  It is a metal shape with a jewelers pin or magnet attached that can be temporarily fastened to the surface of a garment.  When you order your custom buttons from Everyone Loves Buttons® you will receive stunning buttons that are made with the highest quality parts.

What Can a Button Do?

“Your Silent Salesman”

Custom button pins are the perfect way to get your message out from a safe distance of 6 feet or more.

In this era of digital marketing, something personalized and tangible such as a button pin, can go a long way to make you more memorable to a customer or client.

Buttons are visual – A custom button worn by staff or supporters gives a company the opportunity to engage anyone they come across. A fun, vivacious company will want a button design that really pops with bright colors and images. Even steering away from the traditional round button and choosing a square or rectangle shape can help you say: “we stand out.”

A company that is more traditional, and perhaps even subdued, can use a branded logo or imagery they feel represents them well, along with basic or neutral colors. Not using bright colors and loud images does not mean the company is “boring”, but instead helps give the visual impression of being professional.

Custom Buttons are a voice! A button or custom pin gives a company the opportunity to tell people who they are in a few short words or with a picture. A simple mantra like “Carpe Diem,” or a strong word like “Believe,” can make a strong statement to everyone who sees your button. A short company or campaign slogan is something that can go a long way as well. A strong image or a slogan that stands out will keep people talking about you and your button pin. They may think about it and laugh, or it may cause them to go deep into thought, or simply jog a happy memory.

Where and How Can I Use Buttons?

There is a plethora of ways to use buttons as part of your marketing strategy, some ways you can use buttons are more basic, but others will help you stand out from the rest.

Button Pile showing different designs

Give Away a Button

Give button pins away at a trade show, while walking down the street, at schools, anywhere you can to get your message or your information out there.

Use Buttons for a Prize Drawing

Include a code or number on your button pins and have a drawing for button-holders to win a prize. This will ensure that they hold on to them for at least a short time.

Use a Button Magnet as a Business Card

Print your business card on a button magnet and hand it out in meetings or conferences. People will never forget who you are and they can attach them to any metal surface.

Wear Your Button

Wearing your button pin will raise questions about you and why you are displaying the logo or slogan. You never know who will approach you to ask about it.

When you think of custom buttons and pins, you might think of political campaigns, or even Jennifer Anniston in Office Space sporting buttons on her suspenders. Whatever comes to mind, personalized custom buttons stand out and are a unique way to market yourself, your company, or a cause to the world.

Using Custom Buttons as Your “Silent Salesman”

Have Something to Say? The Best Place is on a Custom Button!

Our pin-back custom buttons are perfect for your giveaways, advertising, fundraising, or promotions. Buttons are a perfect conversation starter for your customers to ask about promotions they may not be familiar with, or other questions they may have about your business.

Think of your buttons as your “silent salesman”. When your employees wear buttons it helps notify your customers about promotions both in-store and/or online. Plus, when customers wear your buttons, it is a way for them to be a walking billboard for YOU.

Backpack with buttons

People put buttons everywhere! They wear them on their clothing and accessories, and advertise your business for you when when others ask what they are for. The more that a business can get advertised out of the brick and mortar setting, the better!

First-hand anecdotes from customers are a powerful tool when it comes to advertising. Genuine conversations from your current customers to potential customers about your business leads to “word of mouth” discovery. Buttons can help begin these conversations, with loyal customers encouraging others to support the brands they display and love.

Buttons are Perfect for Retailers, Grocery Stores, and Small Businesses

Pile of buttons for advertising

Pin-back buttons can let your message travel fast! Pin-back buttons are the perfect size to “express yourself”, and they come in many sizes, both small and large. Companies love to use them for marketing their brand because they are “silent salesman” for employees. The button does all the talking for your employees, especially if they are not directly interacting with a customer. The more the customer can see your promotion, the better your sales will be.

If buttons are given or sold to customers, they become mini billboards being paraded through town by your satisfied customers. And people can take them wherever they go: on their backpacks, jackets, hats and more! What’s a better consumer endorsement than seeing your brand on others?

Custom Buttons are Super Affordable

Display of buttons used for advertising

Businesses big and small love to purchase pin-back buttons because they are inexpensive and are very effective to get the word out about your promotion. In fact, the more you purchase the more money you save with our quantity price breaks.

Buttons are not just for political campaigns, they are also popular with retailers, grocery stores, and small businesses. One of our clients, Cabela’s, uses buttons to notify their customers about the deals they are featuring for the month. After visiting a local Cabela’s, we have seen not just one employee who is wearing the button, but all their employees are wearing buttons. They are using the buttons to share their message and promote their current sales. Custom buttons are an economical choice that produces great results time and time again!

Custom Buttons are Part of History

Keepsake boxes with items from days gone by will likely have a button or two that mark an occasion in a person’s life. For many people, buttons hold the memories of their first rock concert, campaign election, and other events they participated in.

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of going to an antique show or state fair, you probably stumbled across some pin-back buttons from years past. Collectors love to assemble a collection of buttons that were used in promoting products like cereals, tobacco, and gum.

Today’s businesses still see the value in advertising their products with buttons because they are high demand collector’s items. While the businesses of yesterday may not have anticipated this collectability, they successfully used pin-back buttons to get the word out about their products. The more original and unique your artwork and catchphrase is, the better your chances are of having your buttons become a timeless piece of advertising history.

Using buttons to mark your business’s special occasions is a great way to keep track of your company’s history. Use the same design or update it every year, we are ready to help you begin the next chapter of your business’s success!

Custom Buttons are Just Plain FUN!

Let’s not beat around the bush, pin-back buttons have had great success because they are fun for young and old alike. Whether you are advertising for your small business, fundraising for a worthy cause, or raising awareness of a new policy, customized buttons are sure to communicate what you want effectively. Plus since you can use your logos and favorite sayings, you can show more of your company’s personality to your customers. Buttons are the perfect “silent salesman”, and let you relax while it does the talking.

Pocky Day buttons

Pin-back buttons are not the only option that we offer for “walking billboards”. We also have clothing magnets and bulldog clip buttons for those who do not want to put a tiny hole in their clothing. While these backings may be a bit more expensive than the traditional button, they are worth it for the ease of the button being able to be applied and removed to clothing. There is a huge variety of sizes with over 10 sizes to choose from. You are sure to find what you want. Anything that you can imagine, we can make for you.

Custom buttons have evolved to be the ideal way to quickly communicate an idea to others. With more and more new policies being enacted by small businesses, retail, and grocery stores, all in-store shoppers need to be quickly notified to make shopping experiences smoother. Sometimes all it takes is a simple button on an employee to explain your policy changes, or to prompt customers to ask for more information.

Buttons are a simple hands-off way for your business to share vital messages about your business, promotions, and specific policies in a quick and easy way. Plus, with the option to fully customize the design, the opportunities are limitless to what you can do with your customized buttons! Ready to order buttons for your business?

One of the best parts of being in the button business is seeing people’s creative ideas come to life. Recently, we have seen an influx of beautifully designed button packs being ordered from our clients. These are a great way for companies to market themselves during special events. The button packs include a customized button (or buttons) with a custom backer card. These backer cards can be embellished with logos, sayings, or even promotional discounts.

Button packs are also a great tool for promoting your upcoming events and productions, and make great keepsakes for your customers. Each button becomes a collectable item for your customers to show off by pinning to their jackets, backpacks, hats, and more to express their support for your events. The Broadway Musical Sing Street used their button packs to provide merchandise for their fans, and to show them how they can connect via social media to encourage continued engagement with their fans.

Button pack for Sing Street

Not only are button packs great commemorative items for events, but button packs are great for companies with upcoming promotions. Bijou Basin Ranch, a yak fiber and yarn company, made excellent use of their button packs. This specific button pack had a backer card that informed the holder that they would get 25% off at the trunk show that was at a later date. However, the individual would have to wear the button at the event to get the discount. It was a great promotion to put the brand in the mind of the consumer; especially since there was an event was coming up where the company would be and the customer may attend. 

Button packs for Bijou Basin

These custom buttons had several positive effects for Bijou Basin Ranch. They were able to receive free advertising through their fans wearing the button around the event, and letting others know about the brand and promotion when asked by curious observers. This would let other fans of the company know they are in attendance at the event, and promotes brand discovery by others who might otherwise not find out about their company. The button also incentivizes the individual by giving them a discount in return for wearing the button. The customer may not have thought about using the Bijou Basin Ranch’s fiber or yarn before receiving the button pack. However, now since they are receiving the discount, they may opt to use it instead of other companies.

This blog features different way your can wear your custom buttons and our other button backing options.

When you are creating or designing your custom button, most business owners don’t think about one crucial detail…how is anyone going to wear or show off their buttons?

wear your custom buttons pinback buttons

Wearable Button Backing Options

Traditional Pin-Back Button

The standard backing choice is the pin-back button style, which allows you to wear your custom buttons with the clip of a jewelers pin.

A pin-back button can simply be fastened to a shirt, hat, or bag using the jeweler’s safety pin mechanism. Cool fact, the first design for a pin-back button was patented in 1896. Modern buttons are modeled after that patent in very much the same way! Patent holders, Whitehead and Hoag said, “My present invention has reference to improvements in badges for use as lapel pins or buttons, or other like uses, and has for its primary object to provide…a novel means for connecting the ornamental shell or button to the bar or pin for securing the badge to the lapel of the coat.”

While pin-back buttons may not seem like much of an invention, in 1896, zippers hadn’t even been invented! Early campaign buttons had to be sewn onto the lapel or worn as a pendant. So the pin-back button was quite the revolutionary product.

Today, the pin-back buttons is the most cost effective option for those who are on a budget. From sizes starting at 7/8” all the way to 6” with rectangles, squares, and ovals in between, there is a button size and shape for every need! To order standard pin-back buttons, click here!

Clothing Magnet

If you’d rather your buttons not poke holes in your clothes, the bar magnet is a great choice! This small, powerful magnet is a fantastic backing option for larger buttons that might stretch clothes if they were attached with a pin. This back is also a great option for places that want to reuse their custom buttons amongst employees, or have a lot of buttons to choose from.

For instance, a fast food restaurant might order their custom buttons with a bar magnet, and just keep them all in a drawer in the main office. Employees can easily swap out the buttons each shift without poking dozens of holes in their uniforms. Our clothing magnets come in two different sizes, a small round magnet and a bar magnet.

Depending on the size of the buttons that you order is what size clothing magnet will be used for your order. Both are powerful magnets and even stick to magnetic or metal surfaces like refrigerators! To order clothing magnets, click here!

Bulldog Clips

Bulldog clip backs look a lot like badge clips. The bulldog clip is attached to the back of the button and can easily be clipped onto a lapel or pocket so you don’t have to push a pin through your shirt. Bulldog clips are also great for attaching ID tags to lanyards. To order bulldog clips, click here!

When choosing how your employees or customers are going to wear your buttons you have to figure out how they will be wearing them. If they will constantly be removing and putting the button back on, a bar magnet or bulldog clip fastener is probably a better choice because those won’t poke holes in their clothes. However the downside to those types of backings is, they can be a little more expensive, so if you are designing your custom buttons on a budget the traditional pin-back button style might be a better choice.

Other Backing Options

Other than the standard pin-back buttons, clothing magnets, and bulldog clip backing options, we also have Zipper Pulls®, Fridge Magnets, Bottle Openers, and Mirror Backs. These backing types have some limited size options due to how they are made.

Zipper Pulls®

Zipper Pulls® are a 1” or 1.25” button that has a backing that allows it to be clipped to a zipper. They are an advertising tool for a variety of industries including sports teams, ski resorts, schools, trade shows, and more! They are a great way to show off your brand or create awareness. To order Zipper Pulls®, click here!

Fridge Magnets

Fridge magnets are a way to show off your custom button designs on the refrigerator or a metal surface. The custom button magnets are made using the same production process, however the backing type parts are different. Fridge magnets use a flat back metal part or an unpinned back (depending on the size of the magnet button). This type of magnet is stronger and longer lasting than the flexible fridge magnets you would normally see. To order fridge magnets, click here!

Bottle Openers

Bottle Openers come in one size currently, the 2.25” round. The backing is a black polypropylene plastic with a metal bottle opener. It also has a magnet to either hang your bottle opener up while it’s not in use or catch the bottle cap when opening the bottle! Bottle openers are great for breweries, gifts, or even advertisements for beverage companies! To place an order for bottle openers, click here!

Mirror Backs

Mirror Backs, like the bottle openers, come in one size the 2.25” round. They have a mirror on the back and your custom design on the front!

CustomButtons.com Gives Two Thumbs Up for Rickie Fowler!

Rickie Fowler Wore pin to Honor #1 Fan

Each day of the www.pgatour.com Rickie Fowler wore a pin (1.5″ Square Button) honoring one of his biggest fans, Griffin Connell. Connell passed away this January due to a rare airway disorder and he was only 7 years old. Connell braved many surgeries and was an inspiration to many because of his enthusiasm for life. Fowler met Connell in 2013 and they regularly exchanged texts and emails. “He was just a huge fan of the game,” Fowler said. “I claim him as being my No. 1 fan, so he had a special place with me and Joe (Skovron, Fowler’s caddie)”.

“We looked forward to seeing him and the family here at the tournament every year, so it’s unfortunate that we don’t have him here this week because he was fun to see.” The pin Fowler wore in honor of Connell meant a lot to many people and was created www.CustomButtons.com by Everyone Loves Buttons.

Monday, January 29th marked the first day of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The first two days consisted of practice rounds for the PGA Tour Pros and Wednesday was the Annexus Pro-Am. Many celebrities including singers, actors and athletes showed up to play at the Pro- am. Some favorites included Arizona Cardinals recently retired Head Coach Bruce Arians, six time All Pro Larry Fitzgerald, currently ranked fourth all-time in NFL history in receiving yards per game for a career, and Country Music star Dierks Bentley.

THE 16TH HOLE OF THE WASTE MANAGEMENT OPEN

The 16th hole is the place to be at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Here you can socialize while you cheer on your favorite PGA pros. However many players feel it has gotten crazy this year. Many PGA pros have become disappointed by the comments from people in the stands.  Even Rickie Fowler didn’t like the atmosphere of the 16th hole. “I was a little disappointed at some of the stuff that was said. I don’t want much negativity — the normal boos for missing a green, that’s fine, but leave the heckling to a minimum and make it fun.” Said Fowler. Fowler was runner-up to Hideki Matsuyama in 2016, and T4 last year.

Although Rickie Fowler didn’t win the tournament, we wish him well and will continue to cheer him on in the future for everything he has done to honor @GriffinConnell

Help Everyone Loves Buttons spread awareness about breast cancer this October!

October is upon us, which means it is time to amp up the spread of awareness for one of the deadliest diseases in the world, breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides people with the platform not only to inform individuals about the disease but also to celebrate the battles that were won and remember those who lost the fight.

According to breastcancer.org, not only is breast cancer the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the world, it is also the leading cause of cancer deaths among women worldwide. To put that into perspective, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed in a woman every two minutes in the United States alone, and somewhere in the world, one person dies every 60 seconds from breast cancer.

As a nationally certified woman-owned business, Everyone Loves Buttons would like to invite you to join the fight and help spread awareness about breast cancer. We are currently offering a 10% discount on any breast cancer awareness products ordered through our website in the month of October.

Remember, awareness is the first step in catching the disease before it is too late. About 1 in every 8 women, or 12%, develops breast cancer at some point in their lives. So wear your pink proudly, encourage your friends and family to get tested, and help us spread awareness.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner!

As a nationally certified woman-owned business, Everyone Loves Buttons would like to share some statistics about breast cancer in preparation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

According to breastcancer.org, about 1 in every 8 (12%) women develop breast cancer at some point throughout their lifetime. It is not limited to women, but it is a much more common occurrence among the female gender. In America, breast cancer ranks second behind only a couple forms of skin cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women. Aside from lung cancer, breast cancer death rates are higher than any other cancer among women in the United States.

Needless to say, breast cancer is a big deal in the U.S. and across the world. The problem is that most people aren’t educated enough on the matter, which prevents those individuals from detecting the disease early on causing the cancer to spread prior to diagnosis. This is why October is so important in terms of spreading the word about breast cancer.

In today’s day and age, it is much easier to spread awareness with the likes of the Internet and more specifically social media. As for breast cancer awareness, the pink movement has been expanding over the last few decades. All of your favorite NFL players sport their hot pink cleats, gloves, socks, and towels throughout the month of October to help raise awareness about the disease. DeAngelo Williams, running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, even dies some of his braids pink for the entirety of the NFL season in support of his mother’s battle with breast cancer.

There is always more that we can do to combat an illness like cancer, but the little things like wearing pink and supporting the fight can help build the foundation for a better tomorrow.
