Are you planning to host a virtual event for your business? You’re not alone. Thanks to the impact COVID-19 had on in-person conferences, companies and marketers have shifted to virtual events. This includes how businesses handle their branded swag bags.

So how do you get virtual attendees their branded swag bags when you have a virtual event? Well, this is where virtual swag bags come into play.

If you’re thinking about creating your own digital swag bag, then you may be wondering what makes a good virtual gift? So let’s take a closer look at what virtual swag is and how to select what to put in it.

What is Virtual Swag?

Virtual swag is a digital gift bag companies send to customers, prospects, and event attendees. It may consist of items that are virtual, such as video content, eGift cards, etc. Virtual swag comes with a variety of benefits, which makes them appealing to both companies and recipients. For example, they’re eco-friendly since there’s no shipping, and they’re received instantly.

What Do You Put in a Swag Bag?

Whether you go with a 100% virtual swag bag or send one to your e-conference attendees, you’ll want to ensure you choose products your guests will enjoy. This is essential, especially when typically most promotional products are thrown away before the guest arrives back home.

Swag bags have received a bad wrap over the years because they tend to contain things people don’t need or want. So as you’re putting together your virtual swag, be sure to keep this in mind.

For instance, let’s say you’re hosting a virtual health event. You can send your guests a branded swag bag filled with items they can use to stay healthy. This may include things like:

  • Durable workout/gym bag
  • Water bottle with timelines for drinking
  • Box of energy bars
  • Smoothie recipe book
  • Fun, branded t-shirt with a meme or workout saying on the front

The idea is to find things that are relevant to your audience, so they’re more inclined to keep them.

What is a Good Virtual Gift?

Now, if you decide to go 100% virtual with your gift, then you may be wondering what type of things you can send your guests. Well, you can base it on things like your audience, the event topic, your industry, and so on.

Here’s a look at several virtual swag ideas to get your creativity flowing:
