Selfies frames have almost become part of the furniture at parties and corporate events and Where the Trade Buys believes we won’t be saying bye to them any time soon. They are fun and easy to organise, adding a bit of excitement to any event, so they’ve fast-become a must-have item. But why are they so popular?
Selfie frames belong anywhere and everywhere
They seem to have an ability to be a crowd pleaser at almost every event. They are a great crossover product, utilised at business events just as much as family occasions…
No matter what the theme or occasion, a selfie frame has a place. They can be used by members of staff to interact with members of the public.
Think weddings? Birthdays? Christenings? House warming? The selfie frame is a fabulous addition to every occasion. They provide a way to get all of your guests involved and interact, whilst making memories that will last a lifetime.
They help to commemorate a special occasion
Whether it’s business or pleasure, a selfie frame encourages guests to get involved and have fun whilst capturing pictures to remember the day by.
For business events, this point is particularly useful, as it helps your team network. Networking with new people can be daunting, and then it can be difficult to remember all the names of the new faces you encountered. The selfie frame not only encourages guests and team members to join together and acquire new connections, but the photos help you to remember who was there on the day. From this you can match up business cards with faces for any future meetings.
Selfie frames help you to create wonderful memories for your family event, which is particularly important if it’s an occasion like a wedding that brings together people who haven’t seen each other for a long time!
The results look brilliant on social media
There’s something about pictures taken using a selfie frame that people really engage with – great news for everyone. They make us giggle, smile and for those who weren’t at the event? Well they wish they were.
By sharing the photos on your social media channels, you are not only showing your followers how you throw a great party, but you also remind those who attended how great it was. People are likely to be looking for the photos afterwards, so pictures give them the chance to tag and share as they see fit. The more shares they receive, the greater the possibility of new business or interest.
Sometimes, the time you spend reliving the event afterwards is just as good as the event itself. You can have stacks of fun looking over the pictures from the evening before, reminiscing how good it was. People love to share these pictures on Facebook and Instagram, giving you much more enjoyment out of the selfie frame than just the event itself.
They are a very affordable type of entertainment
If you are working to a tight budget, then a selfie frame is an affordable yet invaluable investment to have at your event. Not on a budget? It is still worth taking one along to your event for an added personal touch. Prices for single selfie frames are £19.80 for an A2, £24.60 for an A1 and £34.20 for an A0 size frame – and you can customise your frame.
At a business event, this is a very small cost that can easily be accounted for in a marketing budget. It will cost as little as a breakfast coffee run for everyone in the morning, yet the coverage you could get off the back of it could be priceless. Invest in a customised frame with the company logo so everyone knows exactly who organised the great event.
The popular alternative to selfie frames for family weddings and parties is a photo booth. Although they are extremely fun and a great aide-memoire for the day, packages can range from £200-£400. Selfie frames do the same job at a fraction of the cost, and again they can be customised for any event.
