He is a master, saw him live last year and he truly knows marketing inside and out. Everything from offline applies just as much online.

fiverr.com has some good opportunities to run creative campaigns on a budget.

I know this is an old thread but I have to agree with MWGrubb here. I feel like the kind of marketing you use is all dependent on your business. You can give guerrilla marketing a shot, but don't rule out the other kinds. See what works for your business best.

Guerrilla marketing can be helpful but it's got to be done right if you expect to grab people's attention. Your still competing with a ton of people so make sure your idea is worthwhile.

I don't know what market you are serving or product you're offering. I say joining a social media site like LinkedIn or FaceBook for example. You make a page, get involved with other people's pages and regularly update something new on that page of yours (posting something every 3 hours is a good move).

This is SMO but it can be considered a guerrilla marketing since most veteran entrepreneurs still uses traditional SEO. But this will soon change as more of them are joining this trend. So take the opportunity ASAP.

It's like anything really. Your audience might not respond to this stuff. If you've got an idea it's probably worth it to test it. Just make sure you measure the results.

Agree with the previous post. Depends on what your audience is and what type of industry you're in, what products and services you offer.

One of our clients (a health coaching company that works with corporations providing their employees with health coaching and occupational health services) has organised a free webinar and we had 70% of the people who subscribed participating in the webinar. Then we had a huge spike in the number of followers. For me that was a great example.

One of the best I've seen though was a woman lingerie brand having a double decker bus driving around London with a dozen shirtless good-looking men throwing around lingerie. People on the streets (particularly women) seemed very amused.
