Imagine a prop that is totally affordable, fun and easy to use that brings excitement to almost any event, whether it is for business or pleasure. Well, it’s a real thing. The selfie frame has a place at all events, and accord to Where The Trade Buys, they are here to stay. But what’s so great about these products and what type of events do they belong at? Here’s our guide.
Family events vs business events
It is incredibly versatile – you don’t need to worry if it is appropriate for business or pleasure, it’s appropriate for both! Selfie frames have the fantastic ability of being a crossover product.
Business events: When you are hosting an event on behalf of your company, it’s important to stand out from your competitors – little touches such as a selfie frame will encourage attendees to remember you.
Family events: The prop is an affordable addition to any occasion, as it gets people together, posing for photographs. It also offers a point of interest between people who don’t know each other.
Prices for single selfie frames are £19.80 for an A2, £24.60 for an A1 and £34.20 for an A0 size frame – proving you don’t need to break the bank to add some fun extras to your event.
Business events: It’s an added extra that your marketing budget can account for. It will cost as little as a breakfast coffee run for everyone in the morning!
Family events: 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.
The benefits of a selfie frame
Apart from being affordable, there are other benefits of the selfie frame prop. An event that is forgotten about the next day is almost a waste of time. Whether it is corporate or private, you want your guests to remember the day, and the selfie frame encourages that.
Business events: If the event involves networking with new people, you want to be able to remember all your new contacts. Not only will the selfie frame interest people enough to stop and talk to you and your team, it will also remind you of who was there, and help you match names to business cards after a long day.
Family events: Memories amongst the family are cherished. 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.
Social media engagement
Selfie frames seem to have a huge presence on social media – there’s something about them that really engages with an online audience – great news for everyone.
Business events: You can utilise your company’s social media account to sow the success of your event and encourage attendees to continue to engage with your business. People who attended the event are likely to be looking for the photos afterwards, so having them up there gives them a chance to tag and share as they see fit.
Family events: The photos taken with the selfie frame are a great way for families to look back over photos and relive the good memories. 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.
