Experiential marketing – Be unique for consumers

Habefast Blog Experiential Marketing Be Unique For Consumers 1

Experiential marketing is a contemporary form of marketing that aims to engage the consumer in a relationship with the brand and to immerse them in the brand universe from a complete and unique experience. The client is then totally immersed in the brand’s universe, creating a memorable experience.

It is based on the fact that consumers are looking for worlds that take them out of their everyday life and make them dream: with increasingly sophisticated concepts. Even today augmented reality is used by some companies to offer a total immersion experience.

In today’s competitive environment, simply selling a product or service, regardless of its quality, is no longer enough; the consumer is looking for thrills and exceptional events. Making the consumer live a unique experience is one of the new marketing techniques because it encourages the act of buying. It’s also an excellent way to stand out from your competitors and build your brand image. Using sensorial marketing allows to awaken the five senses of the consumer at the point of sale and to create an immersive customer experience.

If this is successful, then customer satisfaction will not only build customer loyalty but also attract new customers through good word-of-mouth communication. You will then gain notoriety through your successful differentiation.

Experiential marketing allows you to differentiate the commercial offer by experience:

  • Surprise the consumer by offering him delirious commercial spaces so that he travels in the universe of your brand.
  • Stimulate their senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch to really immerse them in the universe and use all their senses to build a memory with a strong emotional impact.
  • Putting the client at the heart of the action, of the attention to create an intimate bond with him. The client must feel privileged to live your experience.


Today’s consumers share their experiences on social networks; experiential marketing is therefore a strategic tool to attract new customers, make you known and build customer loyalty.
