Inject some energy for greater success!

Have you ever seen those people that stand at the side of the road holding a large advertising sign? (For some reason it is often for a golf sale.)

There have been a couple of guys standing by a local roundabout for a few weeks, advertising pizzas. Pizza delivery companies have a pretty diverse target audience, so standing by the road with a big sign near a town is not a bad strategy but it’s pretty hit and miss. At first I didn’t take much notice, apart from being aware that they were there. But after a few days they started wearing fancy dress – one was dressed as superman which made me smile as I drove by.

But the time they really caught my attention was when they started waving at cars as they went past. There was something very charming about that and I couldn’t stop myself waving back and I noticed others doing the same. All of a sudden, they had managed to do that magical thing … engaged with their audience.

It’s a pretty boring job, standing by the side of the road. But by tackling it head on and having a bit of fun in the process they managed to bring that little advertising campaign alive and draw much more attention to it. Well done superman!
