It is proven that the unconventional marketing strategies can be extremely successful. The common advertising techniques surely are effective, but if you manage to find a new or a rare way of presenting your products to people, it can be very profitable. Interesting methods have the biggest impact on human brains, they are getting the most attention and new customers are going to be attracted to your company for sure, even if the competition has higher marketing activity, but uses the common ways of advertising.

Do research

In order to use the full potential of your marketing ideas, you have to perform a thorough research of the location you are planning to occupy. The essential factors definitely are getting to know your customers, their needs and sending the right, clear message. However, if you manage to think outside the box, you will pay attention to seemingly less important things, such as the weather in the area, which can turn out to be crucial.

Choose a strategy

For instance, if you want to put your advertisements near some place where young people hang out, such as a bar, a sports pitch or a faculty, urban art can be the bull's eye. Drawing graffiti on a visible spot can evoke so much curiosity. As we have already mentioned, even the weather can be really significant. For example, if the potential customers are living in a rainy region, gifting them colorful promotional umbrellas with your logo on it can make you recognizable to everyone living there. Street propaganda is remarkably effective, as well. For this, you will need to hire an artist who would help you with thinking it through and paint the sidewalks with your ideas. One of the most bizarre methods of advertisement is using temporary tattoos on you and your staff before attending an event or handing out flyers in the street with a tattoo of your logo on your neck. This will leave everyone breathless, which is exactly what you want, so this tactic is more than useful.

Be different online

Many business owners think that it is totally enough to create accounts on leading social networks, but there is much more than that, since it is only the starting point. Creating a blog is a huge step forward. It is very helpful, because you can get feedback from the customers and you even might be able to find out something about other blogs they visit. They are your next stop. Leaving guest post on these blogs can expand your customer base a lot. People also like giveaways and getting stuff for free, even if it is only a piece of advice. So, you should take into consideration creating an e-book, a tutorial, a how-to article or a video that can attract new and keep the old customers. Be sure that sharing things like these on your blog and social networks is very likely going to draw a lot of attention, which is certainly beneficial to your business.


When it comes to marketing, probably the most important thing is to be innovative and creative, so do not give up quickly, because it often requires a lot of time to come up with something extraordinary, but when you do, not even the sky is going to be the limit.
