Sometimes it is better to choose locations where the target audience of our brand usually stays – having a specific consumer awareness and habits. The advertising message should be addressed to a specific group of recipients.

People using parcel machine panel will have to watch the advertisement in order to go to the stage of collecting the parcel.

Using a parcel machine as an advertising medium enables also targeting and geotargeting options.

An alternative to the aforementioned solutions may be engaging advertising spots. They make it possible to convey a lot of content in a relatively short period of time, and on top of that they give an opportunity to tell stories which will arouse emotions of the consumer. Video marketing may include a multimedia presentation, a video presentation expanded with content boards or an advertising spot in the form of a film or animation.
