Events and Operational Marketing Agency


AFA is also a direct marketing, sales promotion and event agency. We cover all Morocco thanks to our extended team, and we manage operational marketing projects from our main office which is based in Casablanca.

Our direct marketing services

We carry out different projects and missions that can be classified in the so-called alternative marketing or below-the-line communication, such as:

  • events and street marketing (roadshows)
  • samples and flyers distribution (flyering)
  • sales animation with promotional communication: sales promotion with tastings, product sampling, contests etc.
  • discounts, destocking, bonuses etc.
  • trade marketing and merchandising
  • commercial animation in hypermarkets/supermarkets with hostesses (facilitators), dramatization, POS etc.
  • supervision and mystery shopping
  • experiential marketing
  • and many others …

Our event agency handles all these marketing field operations from concept elaboration to concrete execution. We adopt a transversal approach to reach as many shoppers as possible in different places, in order to multiply the recall opportunities and arouse the clients' attention.

We act in a huge field that spans from food, to high-tech products (household appliances, telecommunications), and including the health and beauty products. We have also the ability to work in all places where we can deploy impacting field marketing actions (hypermarkets, supermarkets, CHR, streets, markets, shopping centers etc.).

We have the ability to quickly engage multiple profiles such as hosts and hostesses, facilitators etc. throughout Morocco for large-scale direct marketing projects.

Why do commercial animation and operational marketing?

The communication campaigns that are made with traditional media and classic advertising tools like TV and radio are characterized by non-optimal targeting, and result in a huge underexploited budget.

By contrast, the operational marketing maximizes targeting thanks to one-to-one communication with the customer and generates faster and guaranteed return on investment. In addition, interaction with consumers allows us to listen and learn more about their needs, purchase inhibitors... it's quite the opposite in TV/radio where the message is unilateral!

Direct marketing also has the advantage of communicating an energetic and creative image of the company and its brands.

Better yet, if the action is well conducted, it may turn into success by generating spectacular buzz and huge virality. Indeed, it is the common outcome with guerrilla marketing actions that are very impactful and that generate significant media relay. The rule of thumb is to incorporate a large dose of originality and choose the suitable place/time and good facilitators for such commercial actions.

Our direct marketing agency implements creative sales promotions to break the marketing codes. We respond surely to your goals, but we strive to deliver to your customers unique and unforgettable experience.

The intended goal is to awaken shoppers and arouse their interest vis-a-vis your brand, product or promotion with innovative and efficient marketing actions in the shops and places they frequent.

We offer several different solutions, each optimized for a specific problem:

To meet these needs, we consider the following solutions:

360 direct marketing strategy

We study your needs from multiple angles, and we design a field marketing solution to activate your brand on a maximum number of contact points. Our goal is to create a broad and sustainable exposure in the most frequented places by your target in order to boost your brand awareness and/or sales.

It is more effective to design an annual plan of operational marketing instead of realizing commercial animations in a sudden way here and there especially without previous organization.

Point-of-Sale Marketing

It is noteworthy that over 60% of purchases are decided on the store in an unplanned way. To get more sales, you have to attract shoppers with a prominent showcasing strategy and impactful commercial animations that cannot be unnoticed. In this sense, we offer many in-store marketing solutions:

  • commercial animation and sales promotion
  • merchandising and planograms management
  • experiential Marketing, point-of-sale dramatization, installing of PLV
  • digitizing the point of sale

Out-store marketing

Operational communication actions and event animation outside the point of sale, must also be part of your direct marketing plan. Among the advantages, we can mention:

  • Reach targets that are difficult to contact.
  • Create loyalty and an emotional attachment to the brand for the long term.
  • Increase sales in the short term, especially when launching a new product or a flash promotion.

It is even more effective to combine operational marketing actions inside and outside the store to:

  • Ensure ubiquitous and consistent communication.
  • Drain and accompany the shopper throughout its way from the outside to inside the store with visibility actions and commercial animation.

Among our expertise areas:

  • general public events
  • guerrilla marketing
  • street Marketing
  • distribution of flyers and samples

External sales force

The market is increasingly unstable. The need to properly adjust the sales team according to the fluctuations in demand becomes very difficult.

To optimize your business performance and be able to focus on your heart of business, we build and manage an outsourced sales force to allow you to gain greater flexibility and reactivity, and keep costs under control.

Local stores and small traders (traditional channel)

The independent traders' cannel and mini-markets still represent a large share in the distribution, especially for fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG).

We help you to reference your products in as many stores as possible, improve their visibility and curry out commercial animations when needed in a list of stores with high potential.

In addition, we collect and feed qualitative information back such as:

  • traders/merchants expectations
  • customer opinions transmitted to the sellers
  • promotional offers applied by the competition
  • the views of customers and sellers about the competition products

Mystery shopping

To assess your sales team working on field or set a program of continuous improvement and performance management of your sellers, we carry out mystery shopping on place to measure the quality of reception and advice, and also to ensure that your instructions and sales policies have been applied to the letter.

Operational and logistical organization

The operational marketing actions require great mobilization of human resources and technical means in a well-organized way, to ensure efficient execution of promotions and event animations.

We handle the entire supply chain and ensure recurring operations such as storage, transport, installation etc.

Finally, the potential that can be offered by the operational marketing is huge, especially if it is compared with respect to the used budget.

Entrust your next event or commercial animation to our direct marketing agency, and enjoy our creative and multidisciplinary expertise. Whatever your product, service, business sector or mode of distribution, we will design an original, optimized and ROI oriented communication campaign, so you can have a respectful and prominent presence in a hostile and competitive environment.
