How to use an online photo booth for successful event engagement
If you're planning an in-person, hybrid or virtual event (ie. ANY type of medium to large scale event) you’re probably wondering how to add personal touches that will help make your event memorable to attendees. In our experience, one of the easiest ways to do this is with an online photo booth - like Snapbar Snapshot.
An online photo booth is easy to use
Using an online photo booth can be a fun and easy way to add a personal touch to your virtual event. Virtual photo booths are cost-effective, they’re incredibly easy to set up, and they live in everyone’s pocket.
Online photo booths are ideal for virtual events or in-person events that don't have a physical space or resources for traditional photography equipment. Working in a hybrid environment? Perfect, because they can also be used as part of your live stream experience, no matter where you're hosting it!
The beauty of an online photo booth is that it doesn't require any special software or hardware. You don't need to download anything, connect to a computer or webcam, or print photos—and it's all available on the web in real time. It's as easy as scanning a QR code or clicking a link, and then taking a selfie or photo of your friends!
An online photo booth is versatile
Virtual photo booths fit in a wide variety of events. While they won’t necessarily make sense for smaller get-togethers, they can be great for events like sales meetings, conferences, or large company parties.
Whatever event you’re planning, creating a branded experience with your own logo, colors, custom backgrounds and stickers ensures all the content is on-brand and ready to use in marketing.
Not only do online photo booths help engage people at sporting events, music festivals, conferences and beyond, they help boost event ROI. The content your guests create becomes memorable to them, it marks an occasion, and incentivizes them to share it on social media which helps spread awareness.
An online photo booth helps you stand out
Want to stand out from the competition by creating a memorable experience for your guests?
Here are some additional benefits of using an online photo booth that will help your event stand out:
- Inclusivity is built in: With an online photo booth, you don’t have to worry about people not being able to attend your event and missing out on taking part in the fun - because it’s accessible by anyone, from anywhere.
- Environmental friendliness is built in: Users access virtual photo booths from their personal devices, meaning you don’t have to ship equipment, print on paper, hire additional staff or even use event power sources to make it work!
- Personality is built in: The images generated by virtual photo booths are often more visually appealing than those produced by traditional print booths because they're digitally-enhanced and customized by each user to reflect their own personality and experience
How do online photo booths work?
It’s simple. Each online photo booth is its own microsite, meaning it lives on a custom domain that can be accessed from any device, from anywhere, by simply clicking on a link or scanning a QR code…no downloading or apps needed.
While photo booths in general are one of the most popular ways to add a fun and interactive element to your events, virtual photo booths make it a few steps easier.
Your audience will love being in control, taking selfies when they want, or becoming the photographer as they take snapshots of their friends, the stage and more. After they take the photo, they can customize all the content and when it’s submitted, it automatically populates a dynamic gallery or display.
With the right photo booth software, you can create a unique experience for both your in-person and virtual attendees. You can also use the content to create mosaics and beautiful marketing assets post-event. These tools are great for sales meetings and conferences where you want to give attendees something more than just a PowerPoint presentation or branded stress ball.
