So you’ve been in business for a while, you’ve got a decent client base in your area, but of course, your looking to grow. However, budgets are tight and you can not just spend on endless advertising. Traditional methods can be effective, but once your business is established, how do you grow beyond your reach without overreaching?
The answer is what I like to call Guerrilla Location. Now most people at this point have some idea about street or guerrilla marketing. Between YouTube videos of flash mobs and street art campaigns you might have seen locally, guerrilla marketing have become an effective new force in advertising.
The first key is to understand what else your targeted demographic does in isolation from your industry. Maybe you produce skateboards and have been advertising in skating magazines and on local TV, but your looking to grow. You obviously know who is skateboarding and where they ride their boards, but what are the skateboarders doing when they are not riding their boards? Are they at a concert, if so what bands? Are they at the mall, if so what stores are they shopping at and what are they shopping for? Find events or other products your demographic uses, even if completely unrelated to your product, and make an advertising presence there.
The Key is to Stand Out!
A Guerrilla Advertisment Can Be Anywhere!
