Guerrilla marketing tips

This article was published by Pam Hawk who is amazing with this stuff. I subscribe to her blog thru email and got this post and I just HAVE to repost it here

151 Guerrilla Marketing Tips

I have a few tips of my own I got from our new team member Kelli of Kellibeans fame

Make small items and leave them places, like sample sizes of your product, something small that cost little time and effort to make with your business info attached

Make something useful that has your business info on it...a pen, a magnet, a calender,SOMETHING that a person could use often and be less likely to throw away or ignore.

Have fun with guerrilla marketing it sounds like something I would like to get into myself as I am ALLL about marketing! Just make sure your marketing ends up being cost effective and you dont go ovr your budget you set aside for advertising expenses. it can be so easy to go over budget, I have done it before! LOL

I'm a maven!

So there I am cruising the forums on artfire and I always check the staff announcements cause artfire is so rapidly changing and exciting I want to see what admin has to I see a post about "are you a Maven"

Sure thing I say and click on it cause I am wondering what the heck it is...

Artfire is so cool they are offering some positions to people to test drive the new stuff they are rolling out before its officially "rolled out" This is a computer nerd dream come true. The need feedback on the new features they are working on and need people who can be thorough with their feedback,AND also blog, twitter and just generally blab about whats going on and what artfire is coming up with next..I am good at this! Look here I am blabbing about this oppurtunity so maybe one of you guys out there wants to get in on it before the offer ends tonight...

So I would advise any artfire fans to subscribe to my blog to hear about all the good stuff FIRST! I will know about some things before the press does. I got the inside scoop! So stick with me I am officially an insider...a "Maven"

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOOO HOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh yeah, and I know I am a team leader on Etsy but I am not an etsy traitor...I just really like artfire and computer stuff and being an "insider" makes me giddy!
