Street marketing is a promotion technique that uses the street as the main field of expression. This practice is used more for proximity communication in order to create traffic to a specific point of sale, physical or digital. This technique appeared in the 1980s, in the United States, with the distribution of leaflets in the street, carried out by hostesses.
