Why Your Brand Should Try a Guerrilla Marketing Campaign
Guerrilla Marketing and Experiential Marketing have proven to be highly successful marketing strategies. They require a high functioning level of creativity, flexibility and a willingness to take a little risk. One thing that this type of marketing doesn’t need is a massive budget. Clients often mention to us that they don’t have any money but they would really like to get social media attention or press coverage.
Enter Guerrilla Marketing
It’s an awesome way to get you noticed, set you apart from your competition without spending all your budget. This is where you can let your creativity flow and introduce just the kind of disruption that will turn heads and make impressions.
So what is Guerrilla Marketing Exactly?
Typically Guerrilla Marketing is any unconventional, unexpected and unusually evocative marketing activation. It can take many forms and is typically memorable, unauthorized and disruptive.
Why Guerrilla Marketing?
This type of marketing strategy deploys affordable, simple productions that leverage existing events happening in a physical space. It can create a memorable and lasting impression among people. It can generate buzz, stir interest and suggest participation.
Instead of investing valuable resources and money in the marketing process you can invest time, energy and imagination. Guerrilla campaigns aren’t best suited for brands that are unable to take risks.
