WILD POSTING and What Is It?
Wild Posting is primarily defined by most companies as the distribution of promotional advertising posters / flyers throughout cities.
It is sometimes known as wheatpaste posters, wheatpasting, sniping, and flyposting outdoor advertising by specific companies or industries.
Outdoor advertising posters are posted often placed outdoor on construction sites, storefronts, and street poles.
Smaller size posters can be posted inside cafes, in shops windows, and on bulletin boards, plus on-campus.
Street posters are a form of outdoor advertising utilized to promote events, product releases, movies, apps, concerts, and brand initiatives.
Smart companies leverage wild postings to drive consumer engagement via strong call-to-actions, contests, and promo codes.
Wild postings offer companies the most value in cities with a high concentration of people walking around (e.g. Chicago, Boston, Portland, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, etc.)
And, street-level posters are an excellent way to reach people in mid to small cities where around-the-city outdoor advertising opportunities aren't as prevalent (e.g., Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Hudson Valley, Nashville, Raleigh, etc.)
