My favorite trade show booth ever

Each year Avery sets up a booth at the eBay Live! convention where you can print your own business cards for free. This is astonishingly clever.

1. There’s a reason to visit the booth. Folks at this event don’t usually have business cards, so they make it their first stop each year.

2. There’s a reason to tell your friends. They need cards too.

3. It has passive word of mouth. Each time you use a card, people see where you got it. You’re making recommendations, even when you’re not actively recommending.

4. It demonstrates the product.  Too many exhibitors waste time on a stupid gimmick. This gets hundreds of people active in a true product demo.
