could you see yourself paying for this service?

Warriors!

I live in NYC and do marketing online. Last week i decided to go out and do some guerrilla marketing. So i headed down to Times square with a qrc code on my chest.

My friends thought i was nuts but the walk got me a huge social media push, over 40 signups and 25 affiliate sign-ups.


My company went crazy, they put the photos in the office!

Warriors what price would you put on this? Also many of you own websites could you see yourself paying for this service?

    So what exactly are you providing ?

    I might see this as a PR stunt or linkbait if done properly.

      I am providing exposure, it can be really limitless on the type of interactions you can have with people in person. There were many people asking how they can join, what it was about, costs ect...

    That's f'in awesome, I would do it a couple times so you can get a average of sign ups etc.

    Then go to other companies and pitch your service, but I'm clueless on pricing.

    If it gets results, I"m sure you won't have a problem finding someone to pay for it. You would just have to find the right offer to stick on the QR code on your chest. Is that you in the pic?

      Yes that is me lol

      If you own a web property or you have a new start-up and you want exposure what would marketing like that be worth.

      people pay a $1,000 bucks just for a yellow page ad....

    People do pay $1k for a yellow page ad. But it also can generate a ton of money if done properly.

    Depending on if you charge a flat fee or hourly?

    Thanks alot that concept is sick...

    they dont lay out pricing, so i am assuming this can cost at least $1,000

    Well many of you on here own a website...the question is could you see your self laying out $1,000 for a 8 hour walk like this??

      I was thinking of of it as a Fiverr gig.

      Thing is that sheet of paper in a shop window with the QR, website name and description, might be just as effective ... if it is effective.

        Fiverrr Noooo wayyy lol ,

        i have made over $100 bucks doing testimonials on fiverr and even that was not worth the time lol

        i am getting the feeling that you have to show more worth before people will pay me to do walks for them.

        what type of results would justify $1,000???

          Making someone more than $1000 will justify your $1000 price tag.

            Good point, however there are not many advertising programs that deliver same day results, long term sales can not always be calculated.

            I can create a good package...pitch the hell out of it and try to land clients. But many of you here on the warrior forum own websites. To what extent would you pay for exposure....

    So, just personally I would probably pay around $100 for you to stand out there for two hours and promote my business. Unfortunately my business is very very local oriented and I'm not in NYC.

      Thanks, but you would still pay $100!

      what if you were global. or in nyc??

      I would like to grow this concept....any potential partners...?

        I will look at a partnership if you are willing to dress up that way every weekend or find someone to do the same... Even on weekends without a paying sponsor we should be able to make bank.... I have a couple gigs for you right now... One question, what are the legalities in NYC for portable advertising/mobile billboards. Do you need to register with the City or are there any fines for non-compliance??

        This could easily generate a couple grand every weekend.

        If you are serious about a partner PM me or email me at chris @ sendcards dot com....

        Cheers

    You could also do JV's to promote product or affiliate sales whenever you have no direct sponsors. That'd make bank too.
