Guerrilla Marketing: Food for Thought (Images)

Happy Friday from Santiago, Chile! We haven't written about marketing in a while, so we wanted to share the following slideshow with you. Our dear Tom Gruber discovered it, and while not all of these guerilla marketing techniques can be applied to the sale of services like ours, they will amaze and maybe inspire you. It's all about thinking beyond traditional marketing and about how to have the  most impact with the least amount of money spent. Enjoy!

If you have a great guerilla marketing idea, we'd love to hear it. Simply leave a comment below.

If you think" I’ve got business cards printed up, but rarely find anyone to give them to."

Below are some ideas I’ve found in the web:

- Turn them into bookmarks – You can leave your business cards inside books your target market will be reading at the library.

- Turn your cards into magnets – you can do that on vistaprint

- Use the back of your card as a ‘coupon’

I remember learning that Food Marketing Services companies spend billions of dollars in food marketing to children under that age of 4. So, it was an amusing moment when I got to experience it for the first time as a mother.
