Guerrilla Marketing Ideas

7 replies
I do brand identity and web design by finding clients strictly online.

The plan is to start offering my service locally too!

One of the best guerrilla marketing ideas that I've seen is to paint an old bicycle, 100% in a fluorescent color and chain it somewhere in a city (with your ad on it of course).

Does anyone of you know any similar marketing ideas that would suit my service better?

How would you market my business in general?

I'm looking for a no-cost or cheap ideas for the start!

Thank you!

    Get teacher's color chalk (fat type)
    Make a Display AD on the SIDEWALK or create some sidewalk art and insert your ad.


    Just refresh every few days and redo after a rain shower! LOL!


    But its free, low cost chalk, fun and no legal issues (but check with a lawyer first anyway).

    That actually works. An internet cafe in Manila, Philippines pays talented people to place ads with arrows on sidewalks that lead to the cafe.

    That's an interesting idea. How big is the ad on the bike?

  • Drive around with signage on a car. That works!

    I've seen rear windshields with "Curiosity can make your rich call:555 2679840 now" pasted on it. God alone knows what they have to offer you, but your curiosity may just get you to call that number.

    That may work for you too OP. Put your number on your car and the words " Call: 012 345 6789 for Your best local guerilla marketing". I'm sure you can come up with something better. Invest in some business signage if you haven't already done so and pay schools in your area, and put your signage up on prominent fences in your area. You can pay home owners a small fee to have your signage up on their wall facing highway traffic.
