What is Guerilla Marketing? “Guerilla Marketing is an advertising strategy in which low-cost unconventional means (graffiti, sticker bombing, flash mobs) are utilized, often in a localized fashion or large network of individual cells, to convey or promote a product or an IDEA.” “It should be based on human psychology rather than experience, judgment, and guesswork.” “Forget about the competition and concentrate more on cooperating with other businesses.” “Messages are aimed at individuals or small, groups, the smaller the better.” “Typically, guerrilla marketing campaigns are unexpected and unconventional, potentially interactive, and consumers are targeted in unexpected places.” (Source: Wikipedia)
