Take Your Marketing to the Sidewalk with Low Budget Guerrilla Marketing

Nearly 18 months into a pandemic that turned everyone’s world upside down, business owners are working to find unique ways to bring customers back into their stores and restaurants. While you’re probably putting plenty of thought into digital and traditional marketing, guerrilla marketing tactics like sidewalk advertising promotes some serious curb appeal to your business storefront, especially if you’re located in an area with heavy foot traffic and working from a tight budget. 

Here a few ideas just to get your wheels turning.

Street Decals

Street decals are a quick and affordable way to brand your storefront’s sidewalk by giving directions to your store, promoting big sales or other messaging. They are easy to apply on multiple surfaces, scuff and liquid (water and snow) resistant, and overall durable against foot and vehicle traffic.
