Non-traditional mediums of advertising are becoming more common as advertisers fight for the attention of consumers. In order to stand out among the thousands of advertisements that the average person is exposed to daily, advertisers are thinking outside of television, print, and radio advertisements.
Non-traditional marketing strategies rely on new and unorthodox marketing methods.
The goal of non-traditional advertising is to create striking advertising experiences that capture interest through their creativity and unpredictably. Much of non-traditional marketing involves putting ads in unusual places, or displaying ads in unusual ways, hoping to command the attention of unassuming viewers.
Consumers tend to view non-traditional ads as more organic, authentic, and relevant. Because they stand apart from the majority of advertising. Non-traditional ads also tend to be targeted, speaking directly to specific demographics on their own territory.
While non-traditional marketing is unexpected and eye-catching, it is also unpredictable. It can be difficult to know whether a campaign is working because it relies on methods that fall so far outside the tradition of marketing. Marketers may struggle to quantify and measure the success or failure of a campaign. Even worse, a confusing or poorly executed campaign can confuse consumers and create a negative image around a company.
Magazine advertising continues to be an effective form of communicating both brand and product-specific messages to targeted audiences.
