Street marketing can contribute massively to brand awareness.
Street marketing provides many tools, but it is important that brand identity is recognised throughout and should be relevant to customers at all times.
For example, if a sports brand decides to sponsor a sports event, if the brand corresponds with what the event is about and provides a modern twist on things, you are more likely going to be recognised.
