Your Reception Advertising Checklist

Your Reception Advertising Checklist


I was a reception host in a previous lifetime. We were making the transition from your standard check-in, to self-check-in and check-out. One aspect of the checking-out process was a self-standing cube to which guests deposit their room keys. Easily moveable, seemingly stable, yet upon its debut an oblivious guest knocked it with a suitcase to the ground. There it was, a sad pile of plastic stripped of its duties.

We had no choice than to reluctantly order a replacement. With much deliberation, we trialled the infamous cube in numerous locations. By viewing the reception area from a guests’ perspective, we found the perfect location that secured a successful check-out process!

The Five W’s

Who is Your Audience?

Receptions tend to have people of a variety of ages and interests passing through, but the information you are distributing may be beneficial to a specific audience such as professionals, students, parents, patients, guests, visitors, customers... Who have we missed? Know. Your. Audience.

What Are You Advertising?

In previous posts, we have discussed visuals, now let’s focus on the practicality of utilising location. What is it that will attract your audience to interact with your poster and/or leaflet stand? What are you wanting to achieve with your information stand?

Where is the Best Location to Display?

Take into consideration the common paths people take through the reception area. Is there an area with great visibility throughout the majority of the foyer? With the durability of our literature stands, you are granted the ease, confidence and freedom to decide on a location using trial and error without the concern of a destructive suitcase threatening its existence. Not to mention our excellent wall displays that are perfect for evading such destruction!

When Will be the Best Time to Attract an Audience?

This may not be focusing on times you are most busy, bodies may be a natural prevention of people seeing your information. People have active minds and are constantly looking for something to grab their attention. Be that attraction/distraction they are looking for, take advantage of their dwell time and provide a captivating, interesting and perhaps even comical (when relevant) displays of information that will continuously gain interest.

Doesn’t really answer its own question & say when – there probably isn’t an answer to that anyway! Mostly, a display is not moved away!

Why Should You Have a Display?

Print is not dead. Most of us have a smart phone that we are granted infinite information with, yet we predominantly use them to watch cat videos? In busy receptions, receptionists generally do not have the opportunity to offer advice or to ‘sell’. Would you queue up to ask for information or brochures? Use a display to be an extra resource and ensure all relevant information is easily accessible!
