How does it differ from traditional marketing?
Street marketing and guerrilla marketing both are really different?
Definition of road or street marketing:
Street Marketing brings together all the strategies deployed by the brands to communicate with their targets on the street. The most common communication media are billboards and flyers , however, many innovations have been made in this area in recent years (Ex: car wrapping for Red-Bull, Creation of apartment witnesses in the Paris metro by IKEA …) The goal for the brand is to get closer to its consumers and get them to identify with it.
Definition of Guerilla marketing:
There are many debates that try to differentiate the Guerilla from Street Marketing. In my opinion, the difference is minimal. Compared to Street Marketing, I would say that the Guerilla is ready for anything! More aggressive, non-standard operations; The attention is therefore even greater. On the other hand if it is too intrusive it can quickly displease and make lose a few feathers to your capital of sympathy!
The guerrilla is an unconventional way to promote a product or brand as well as the Street Marketing .
The most active brands on social media and new technologies are generally the same ones that invest the streets to deploy their communication campaigns.
Stand out from the mass of advertising
Today, the number of brands combined with the many communication media available to marketing agencies and services push companies to innovate and develop their inventiveness to address the right message to the right target.
In this context, how can we make ourselves heard?
Current campaigns should stand out by:
– Their originality
– The use of new media such as social media
– Consumer involvement in the campaign
– A personalized message for each target group (Gorilla Online Marketing)
– The relevance of the message to the identified need
– The sensitization of our senses (sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing)
