5 Reasons To Hire A Virtual Photo Booth For Your Next Online Event

October 19, 2020

With in-person events canceled or postponed indefinitely, virtual photo booth events have become the new event format for conferences, meetings, summits, and all corporate and business events.

Even after live events and conferences make their way back into our corporate world, it looks like virtual events will continue to be a part of the event industry. They may not exclusively dominate the event space as they do today, but it is highly unlikely they will be going away completely.

As more and more events go virtual, companies and brands are presented with a new challenge - virtual engagement. 

How do you create virtual engagement and turn passive audiences into active participants as people join in from their couch or their home desk? Virtual Photo Booths may be just the right solution.

Top 5 reasons to add Yoomee Virtual Photo Booth to your next event:

1. Audience Engagement:

One of the most common issues virtual events face is maintaining audience engagement. With easy access to distractions online and offline, sustaining engagement and keeping audiences entertained can be a challenge. Virtual Photo Booth adds the needed element of fun to keep your audiences excited and captivated.

2. Brand Awareness:

Virtual Booth provides great marketing and brand exposure opportunities for your business. Yoomee Virtual Photo Booth experience is highly customizable with options to add your branding to the welcome screen, picture overlay, social message, gallery, and more. We can collaborate with your design team in creating your custom stickers or backgrounds. The variety of options for customization present an amazing opportunity to provide a custom branded experience for your online audience. Virtual Photo Booth works amazing for sponsorships, multiple sponsor logos can be displayed on the picture overlays and custom backgrounds creating a virtual step & repeat. Our software uses Artificial Intelligence to allow the actual background to be digitally removed and replaced with your custom branded graphics or artwork.

3. Social Engagement:

Virtual Photo Booths provide an amazing opportunity for companies looking to increase social engagement with their brand on popular social media platforms. Providing a fun experience for your audiences automatically turns them into brand advocates. All pics, GIFs, and Boomerangs are custom branded with your logo and may also include your designated hashtag so every time attendees share their pic, GIF, or Boomerang on social media your brand gets more exposure. 

Social media algorithms value interactions such as likes, comments, shares and retweets.

4. Building Connections:

One of the reasons people attend in-person events is to make connections and expand their network. This may seem difficult to achieve at a virtual event, but with the help of Yoomee Virtual Photobooth, building connections is now possible. 

All pics, GIFs, and Boomerangs are displayed in a live gallery that is instantly updated during the event so all participants are able to see other participants’ pictures, GIFs, and Boomerangs in real time. Since all participants have access to the gallery it allows them to interact and connect with one another by leaving likes and comments.

5. Live Games and Contests:

Creating contests among attendees is a great way to keep your audiences engaged and excited during your event while promoting social engagement with your brand.

For example, you can announce a contest where attendees are asked to take a photo, GIF, or Boomerang using the Virtual Booth and then share it on social media using your event hashtag. After all attendees have submitted their photo, randomly select a winner that will receive some sort of prize from your brand. Alternatively, you could select a winner by choosing the silliest photo or the funniest comment. 

Yoomee Virtual Booth offers other exciting features to help create a more engaging experience for your audiences with fun competitions and “scratch” or “spin” contests.
