Does Guerrilla Marketing work?
Most consumers are influenced and used to conventional methods of advertisements such as television and radio adverts, billboards, magazine articles, etc.
The difficulty with these types of mediums is that you must ensure they are delivered at the right time to your target audience. People have now got use to these types of advertising and tend to ‘switch off’ or fast forward the adverts if watching on Sky Plus for example. It is very difficult to get consumers attention.
This is where guerrilla marketing has an advantage. It does not follow any rules and ensures that potential buyers feel surprised (in a positive way) and if executed correctly it is something they will not forget. The idea is to get an emotional response and generate word of mouth.
