The Future of Guerrilla Marketing and Buzz
Foreword by Derrick Borte
Consumers see roughly 6,000 advertisements daily—30,000 brands per month. Marketing and advertising in saturated markets is tough. How can companies successfully differentiate their offerings and their brands? In Street Marketing™: The Future of Guerrilla Marketing and Buzz, Marcel Saucet answers this question by exposing readers to new forms of unconventional marketing. Intended for companies as well as marketing students, this is a guide to the vibrant future of marketing, where social media meets the street.
The advantages of applying the author's Street Marketing methods include low cost, high impact, the ability to apply a personal approach, and genuine novelty of the messaging that garners the consumer's attention. The book examines why conventional marketing is no longer enough to sell products and services, and explains how Street Marketing creatively promotes the brand in the street—via street art and street culture—that results in an innovative and cost-effective methodology to reach buyers. Readers will come away with a comprehension of the current crisis on conventional marketing and with the ability to conceptualize their own guerrilla marketing campaign in the street, at shopping malls, and other public places.
