Selfie Frames: Business vs Pleasure

Say hello to the prop that will add excitement to your event, whether it’s for business or pleasure. They are affordable, fun and easy to organise, they’ve fast-become the logical and cost-effective way to add excitement to an event. But what’s so great about these products and what type of events do they belong at? Where The Trade Buys predict that the selfie frame prop is here to stay, and here’s why:

What event does it belong at?

The prop can be versatile for almost all events. They have a fantastic ability to crossover at both business and family events. They seem to be a prop that everyone wants to engage with.

Business events: When you are hosting an event on behalf of your business, you want to stand out from your competitors with something that engages those around you, so that they remember your business. Whether you have a stall at an industry exhibition, or some of your team are going out and about, a selfie frame has a place.

Family events: Family events are a place for family members to reminisce on old times and make new memories. A selfie frame is a brilliant addition to any occasion, as it gets people together, posing for photographs. It also offers a point of interest between people who don’t know each other.

Remembering the event

No matter what the reason is behind an event, you want it to be remembered. Whether the event is for business or pleasure, the selfie frame will encourage attendees (and you) to take pictures to remember the day by.

Business events: When you host an event on behalf of your company, it’s important that attendees remember your event and not your competitors. Little extras such as a selfie frame will interest people enough to stop and talk to you and your team, it will also remind you of who was there, and help you match names to business cards after a long day.

Family events: Memories with your family are precious. Selfie frames help you to create these memories for your family event, which is particularly important if it’s an occasion like a wedding that brings together people who haven’t seen each other for a long time.

Social media trend

Selfie frames are a novelty on social media. There’s something about pictures taken using a selfie frame that people really engage with an online audience – great news for everyone.

Business events: You can post all the photos to the company’s social media account after the event to show its success. People who attended the event are likely to be looking for the photos afterwards, so having them up there gives them a chance to tag and share as they see fit.

Family events: Social media is often a way that family members can keep in touch. Posting the picture on personal accounts after the event means the guests can relive the good times through the photos. People love to share these pictures on Facebook and Instagram, giving you much more enjoyment out of the selfie frame than just the event itself.

They aren’t expensive

Selfie frames won’t break the bank. They are a cost-effective way to add some fun to your event. Prices for single selfie frames are £19.80 for an A2, £24.60 for an A1 and £34.20 for an A0 size frame.

Business events: At a business event, the cost of a selfie frame can easily be accounted for in a marketing budget. It will cost as little as a breakfast coffee run for everyone in the morning!

Family events: If you had the budget, the popular alternative to selfie frames for family weddings and parties is a photo booth. However, even though they are extremely fun and a great aide-memoire for the day, packages can range from £200-£400. Selfie frames do the same job at a fraction of the cost.
