Guerilla Marketing on the Internet

Guerilla Marketing on the Internet by Jay Conrad Levinson, Mitch Meyerson, and Mary Eule Scarborough is a fast and worthy read. This book offers an easy to follow guide on how to become a sucessful guerilla marketer with reliable information from the pros. Levinson is known as the father of guerilla marketing; Meyerson is a jack of all trades with accolades including  author, speaker, coach, consultant, and a psychologist; and finally Scarborough offers personal experience with over 25 years in the business.  This book takes the basic rules of guerilla marketing and stays modern by incorporating technology and how innovation has changed the marketing world. It is especially a great read for business students, because it offers a review of all the marketing concepts we learn and reinforces them with examples, lists, and success stories.

As an insight into the book's offering, the following are guerilla marketing principles at a glance:
  • Guerilla investment: Time, energy, imagination, and knowledge
  • Guerilla intentionality: Marketing includes every contact with the public
  • Guerilla commitment: Building successful businesses one step at at ime
  • Guerilla partnerships: Working together to make things happen
  • Guerilla psychology: Tapping into their target audiences' mind
Once supplied with the knowledge in this book and a person's own creativity, I believe this book could change businesses and business owner's lives. I would recommend this book to fellow business students, current and potental business owners, and anyone wanting to change their life with the Internet. The authors call the Internet the most powerful guerilla marketing tool ever created, and it is something worth learning. It allows users to gain maximum results and profits with minimum money.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my post! My favorite example is a YouTube video, created as part of an awareness campaign for bicyclists. Here is the link to the video: It's simple, yet very effective, which is exactly what guerilla marketing is supposed to do.
