Trade show lead generation with NameDrop

Get Great Leads at Your Trade Show

Exhibitors Will Get Great Leads Easily at Your Trade Show

Exhibitors choose trade shows for one main goal: quality lead generation. We have a free mobile app that makes it easy for attendees to share error-free information with exhibitors in an instant, which means more people will share their info more frequently.

This will be music to the ears of your vendors, and you can make this happen for them without spending a fortune on badge scanners for trade shows.

Not only are badge scanners ridiculously expensive, but they capture a limited set of fields, which means attendees must still fill out extra info by hand. Add to that the fact that exhibitors still have to manually enter that data into their CRM and badge scanners are not the best solution.

It’s no secret that attendees don’t like filling out their details by hand over and over again, so at some point during the show, they’ll avoid giving out their info.

It’s also not a secret that exhibitors don’t like to do manual data entry – no one does! Sloppy and illegible handwriting on the forms results in worthless leads, and if that’s not the problem, typos from manual data entry are.

The NameDrop app is hands down the best solution for trade show lead generation. Here’s why.

When you provide NameDrop to your vendors, you’ve made it easy for them to collect leads. Have attendees download our free mobile app so they can tap their phone to each exhibitor’s sign to share their info instantly. Perk: vendors are not limited to one sign. If they have a bigger display area or simply want to collect data on those interested in different products and services, they can have multiple signs in multiple places to capture more leads!

Get error-free leads that contain more info.

Unlike the pricey badge scanners that only capture a narrow set of fields, NameDrop will capture all desired fields for your exhibitors!

Vendors want to know more about the attendees so they can market the right products and services to them. Perhaps they want to know more about their personal interests or work situation to personalize services. Whatever it is, the fields in NameDrop can be customized to get the desired data.

Before your show, your exhibitors provide a list of requested fields for their NameDrop form to us, and come the day of the event, it’s all set!

Shortly after the show, your exhibitors will receive the leads, saving them time from manual data entry and the typos that go with it!

Trade show problems solved by NameDrop app

Top 3 Trade Show Problems Solved

Though the benefits of NameDrop, our multi-purpose trade show app, are clear, we sometimes encounter apprehension or the common “if it ain’t broke, why fix it?” reaction. Here are the top three reasons for these responses and how NameDrop solves them all.

1. Exhibitors assume nothing is broken, when in fact it is broken.

The pen and paper routine might look like it’s worked over the years, but it hasn’t, and it has resulted in lost leads. Why?

  • Messy handwriting on the forms makes it hard to read, resulting in worthless data.
  • Manually entering data from the paper forms into a computer is inherently a time-wasting and an error-prone exercise.
  • An exhibitor becomes a victim of its own success. When so many people are at a booth, others are turned away who would’ve shared their info but didn’t because there were too many people crowding the area to fill out the form.

Using the NameDrop app does away with both the paperwork and the errors. Info is exchanged instantly and accurately.

2. Exhibitors associate something new with change, which means inconvenience.

NameDrop is a new way to capture leads its true, but there is no inconvenience. The convenience is realized when they see how it works.

3. Exhibitors reach a conclusion before seeing how NameDrop works.

Once they see how this app conquers form auto fill, plus how fast and easy it is to receive an accurate list of leads, they’ll wish they had had NameDrop all along. These event planners tell all. How does it work?

Event planners download the app (it’s free!) and have signs (provided by NameDrop) prominently displayed at every exhibiting booth.

The trade show attendees open the app, tap their phone to the exhibitor’s sign, and the form appears and auto-populates. Then, the mobile user releases their info, and the form is filled out instantly!
