Is Offline Marketing Campaign Boring?

When the marketing/advertising world puts so much emphasis on digital marketing and social media, marketers seem to forget the options outside the online world. The option of doing offline marketing campaigns is easily shadowed by the myth: digital marketing and social media are the best, which is not a definite truth.                       

We are not saying that digital marketing and social media marketing aren’t working well, but what we are trying to say is it’s not always the online efforts drive the offline actions. It can be the other way around. Offline campaigns can really drive social media conversations. Well, you can say driving online conversation is actually the objective of the offline campaign in the first place. 

The Key

The successful offline marketing campaigns that drive online buzz are generally eye-catching and interesting enough that make people’s hand craving for  their phone to take photos. In the other words, the key element of using an offline campaign to drive people’s online activities is the shareable User Generated Content.

If you are not quite convinced, JUST YET. The following examples should be able to win your heart.
