Guerilla Marketing - Marketing Comms
Transcript of Guerilla Marketing - Marketing Comms
Sheena Lawlor Guerrilla Marketing Guerrilla marketing follows the same concept as guerrilla warfare by gaining large effects at low cost ( Baltes, Liebing 2008) Guerrilla marketing was first used in the 1960's when SME's in the USA were forced to find ways to compete against larger companies with a superior advertising budget. (Levison 1984) The term Guerrilla marketing was first coined and defined by Jay Conrad Levison in 1984 and he is widely regarded as the father of Guerrilla marketing. Why has there been a surge in Guerrilla Marketing 1. The average US consumer is exposed to 3,000 advertisements a day ( Kimmel 2005) 2. By confronting consumers with the same methods of communication they become aware of this and it causes a wear out effect. This makes the consumer feel restricted in terms of making an independent decision. What is Guerrilla Marketing ? Unconventional

61 out of 141 (43%) people gave it only one star
McDonald’s could implement guerrilla marketing through their app, e.g., could create a game/competition that could go viral Online and offline marketing are usually separate
McDonalds could launch a guerrilla marketing campaign integrating the two, i.e something consumers do online influence something that is happening offline
Example: General Motors ‘bungee jump launched’ their new car in a campaign whereby consumers clicked online and each click moved the car closer to the edge. It took 2.4 million clicks. Integrate online and offline marketing Promote charity work through guerrilla marketing http://www.rmhc.com/
McDonald’s do great charitable work which may go unnoticed
Ronald Mcdonald houses in 57 countries around the world
Annual fundraiser- “McHappy Day” has raised $170 million since 2002
