Any holiday is a great time to put some emphasis on your photo booth, but there is something about Halloween that makes people want to take pictures of themselves and their friends to share on the Internet. Not only can you generate more revenue with some great Halloween photo booth ideas, but you can also show your customers how using a photo booth is so much better than taking selfies with their phones.
Photo booth props are cheap and easy ways to get your customers to take more pictures, and Halloween is a great time to invest a little bit into some props that will result in a lot more usage for your photo booth. You can buy cheap masks, or you can even print them out for people to use. During October, you can offer different mask themes such as superheroes on one day and then monsters on the next. If you change up the themes, you will start to get the same people coming in day after day.
FacePlace photo booths use Smile 2.0 software that can be customized to offer clients plenty of Halloween picture editing options. One way to promote those options is to ask customers to post their edited photos to your social media pages, and you can print those pictures out to hang around your photo booth and show people how their pictures could look. The Smile 2.0 software has plenty of Halloween options that will help to bring in more customers for your photo booth.
Dressing Up The Photo Booth
A big part of the attraction of a photo booth is how it looks to people as they pass by. You can have all of the Halloween related promotions you want, but people won’t stop to use your booth if they don’t see that it has the Halloween spirit. You should dress up the outside with Halloween decorations, and then offer a range of temporary backdrops people can use to create the right atmosphere for their pictures. The more you decorate your booth for Halloween, the more people will take an interest in getting their pictures taken.
Social Media Tie-Ins
You can turn your photo booth into its own holiday event by creating special promotions for your customers to enjoy. For example, have a weekly contest during October where the customer who posts the best Halloween picture on social media taken from your photo booth gets a gift card. Promotions like these will help to bring in lots of interested customers, and they will also help get you free marketing on social media.
A photo booth is one of those attractions that fits in well with holidays and special promotions. When October starts, everyone immediately starts thinking of Halloween and all of the fun that goes with the holiday. You can capitalize on that sentiment by finding ways to offer customized Halloween experiences for your customers through your photo booth. You will increase your marketing reach, bring in more revenue, and introduce new customers to your photo booth.
