Launching a new product, service, or company is like stepping into a thrilling adventure. But let's be real, it can also be a tad overwhelming.
I mean, how the heck do you spread the word about your amazing new venture? How do you ignite that spark of excitement and create a buzz? You throw a party! A launch party not only lets you celebrate your new venture in style but also serves as a magnet for potential clients and partners.
Ben and Sam Brodsky recently threw an epic launch party for their new video production studio, Dual Studios. And it felt like a scene straight out of an Entourage episode.
Today, we're gonna break down what made their launch a success and dish out some tips for hosting your next party.
A Busy Guest Is A Happy Guest
A busy guest is a happy guest. And when it comes to hosting a killer event, keeping your guests engaged and entertained is the name of the game. Nobody wants to show up to a snoozefest where they're twiddling their thumbs and checking their phones every few seconds.
Ben and Sam understood this and built a variety of activities to keep guests on their toes and fully engaged. One of their most popular ideas was the iconic polaroid picture wall. Guests could unleash their inner supermodel, strike poses with whatever props they could get their hands on, and pin their picture-perfect moments on the wall throughout the night. Not only was it a great way to capture memories, but it helped create a fun and festive atmosphere.
But they didn't stop there. They kicked it up a notch with a golf simulator where guests could unleash their inner Tiger Woods. Swinging clubs, teeing off, and virtually conquering the greens added an extra level of excitement and friendly competition to the mix.
By providing a wide range of engaging activities, Ben and Sam successfully created an environment where guests were constantly entertained and always had something to do. Remember, a busy guest is a happy guest, so don't hesitate to plan activities that keep everyone on their toes and fully engaged throughout the night.
For The Gram
An Instagrammable moment is any visually appealing experience that encourages people to take pictures and share them on the gram. It could be a unique piece of art, a creative backdrop, or simply something that captures attention and makes you go, "Whoah!"
These moments are a fantastic way to increase brand awareness through word of mouth marketing. Think about it, when people share those Insta-worthy shots, they're basically giving you free advertising!
At their launch party Sam and Ben used a variety of creative and engaging techniques to get people snapping away. From the ribbon cutting ceremony to the retro TV DJ stand, there was something for everyone to enjoy. Here are a few of our favorite highlights:
Ribbon cutting ceremony: The ribbon cutting ceremony is always a great way to kick things off and generate excitement. All eyes were on Ben & Sam, providing a perfect opportunity for attendees to capture this historic moment with a photo.
Retro TV DJ Both: The retro TV's in front of the DJ booth were a creative way to add some fun and nostalgia to the event. They were a total hit, displaying Dual branding, a live video feed of the dance floor, and a trippy slideshow of abstract visuals throughout the night.
Old-School Tech Remember those vintage computers that you would doodle on in "paint" or leave messages for others? Well, Sam and Ben brought them back in style and utilized one as a guest book where attendees could unleash their creativity and leave their mark. People were enthusiastically scribbling away, creating memories, and, of course, sharing their doodles and snapshots on social media.
Live entertainment is the heartbeat of any event. It's what gets people on their feet, grooving, and having an absolute blast. Whether it's a band, DJ, comedian, or even a magician, live entertainment is the secret ingredient that can take your event to the next level.
Daveed Russ and Jared Willemsen cranked up the energy and turned the whole place into a wild party zone. They unleashed a killer mix of tunes that had guests shaking their stuff and having the time of their lives.
Launch parties (if done right) are a great way to celebrate the start of a new chapter, connect with potential clients, and above all, let loose and have a good time.
If you're planning a bash for your new business launch or milestone, take notes because Ben & Sam just raised the bar absolutely nailed it!
