I was a fan of guerrilla marketing – long before I knew it had been given a name. And, I’ve kept an eye on any new Guerrilla marketing articles or books for years. So – I noticed this post and had to share it here —
What is Different about Guerrilla Social Media Marketing
I have been asked by a number of people what the difference is between most brands and a brand that employs guerrilla social media strategies. Today I thought I would share an excerpt from my upcoming book that answers that question.
An excerpt from “Guerilla Social Media Marketing” by Shane Gibson and Jay Conrad Levinson
What is an authentic guerrilla brand?
- It makes promises and statements that can be backed up today, tomorrow and indefinitely.
- It is customer-focused and sells and markets to the customer what they need and want.
- It is consistent, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in any geography or language.
- It doesn’t take shortcuts for short-term gain; the guerrilla brand builds customers for life.
- It is, however, fallible; all brands have imperfections and weaknesses, and a guerrilla brand does not shovel these things under the rug. It takes feedback and improves the customer experience.
- It is accessible. No executives are in an ivory tower; no labyrinths have been built to keep out the unhappy customer.
- It is focused on a distinct area of true competency and expertise, and that is why people gravitate to the guerrilla brand.

20 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Use Social Media
Written by jeffbullas on August 10, 2010
Social media marketing for business is new and not for everyone. It is being implemented by the innovators and the early adopters that love to lead the pack. It is also a very different way of communicating your brands message and with that comes challenges, opportunities and threats.
There is also the joy of learning new ways of marketing, with that there is often the accompanying pain of mistakes that comes along for the ride.
So maybe you should not use social media because it is not for you just yet!
Here are 20 reasons not to use social media
- You are a traditionalist and value the “good old days”
- You don’t want to be found
- You don’t want to be heard
- You have shares in the “Yellow Pages”
- You like spending thousands on media you can’t measure
- You highly value your perceived privacy
- You don’t want to hear what your customers are saying
- You don’t want any new customers as you are already too busy
- You’re afraid people might say nasty things about you
- You want to give your competition a head start
- Its a waste of your valuable time
- Because its only a fad and it will go away
- I like to keep things simple and it’s all a bit complex with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and all that stuff
- I am a real person and I don’t believe in those fake online social networks
- Social media sites are largely populated with people who have nothing better to do with their time
- Social media is at an evolutionary stage I will wait until it is more mature
- I don’t want to be overexposed
- If I subscribe or join I will be spammed
- There is something better around the corner, I can afford to wait
- Social media will reduce real face to face opportunities because I would waste my time online
Are there any other reasons you shouldn’t use social media?
How to Scout Whales on LinkedIn
Are you one of the many executives who think social media is frivolous, trivial, and unrelated to your business? Think again! In this article, I explain the value of just one of the social media tools to find a personal introduction into a new large account prospect, to locate employees and past employees that you “didn’t know you knew,” and other valuable information about your prospects.
In The Whale Hunters Process™, once you have completed a Target Filter and created a Whale Chart, it’s time to research those key targeted companies that seem ideal for you. From your research, you create a Scouting Dossier about each potential prospect (download a free dossier form here – http://thewhalehunters.com/free-stuff/46). The dossier contains information you will need to score each company against the Target Filter criteria to determine which prospects will be best for you.
An important component of the dossier is a list of contacts–names and titles of people that you need to meet. In a whale-sized public company, you can find the names of key executives in the annual report and SEC documents. But in a very large company, you are not going to meet the CEO. You need to meet some key executives at one corporate location, or in one division, or in one functional area such as marketing, manufacturing, quality control. That information is harder to find. And once you identify key contacts, you need to find an introduction to them.
LinkedIn, the leading social media tool for building professional connections, allows you to identify and connect with the right people. Here’s how it works for me.
1. Suppose I am a salesperson for a marketing firm, and I want to introduce my services to wedding retailer David’s Bridal. I log in to LinkedIn and search “companies” for David’s Bridal. More than 500 employees of the company are members of LinkedIn, and one of them, the director of eCommerce, is in what LinkedIn calls “my network.” She is directly connected to a person who is directly connected to me, a person that I actually know very well. I can ask my connection to introduce me to the director of eCommerce at LinkedIn. And from that person, who is likely one of the key people I need to meet, I can find other key people at David’s Bridal.
2. Now suppose I represent a software development company that introduces its products to manufacturers. On my Whale Chart is a company named Aethercomm. 37 employees of that company are LinkedIn members, one of whom, the director of business development, is in my network. Now I can request an introduction to that person from the person to whom I am connected.
3. What if I own a print company, and I want to learn how to do business with the National Football League? My LinkedIn search produces more than 500 NFL employees, two of whom are in my network. They are not the right connections for me, however–one is a scout and one is a game official. It’s not likely that they could help me. However, through my network I am “linked,” to five former employees of the NFL. I am not directly connected to these people–rather, in every case, I am connected to someone who is connected to them. It’s a “second-tier” connection. But now I am able to tap my network of immediate connections to request an introduction to someone who could help me navigate the NFL.
And that’s not all. When I did the company search on the NFL, I also uncovered the names and profiles of people not in my immediate network but whom I needed to identify. One of those is the Vice President of Entertainment Marketing and Promotions. That’s a person who could help me connect with the buyers of print services. When I opened his profile, I discovered that I have a “third tier” connection–nineteen of my direct connections have connections to people who have connections to that VP. Once again, I have a network that can help.
In all three of my examples, LinkedIn provides much more than the names and connections. I can learn how long people have worked for the company, where they are located, their job title, where they went to school, and the names of their former employers. In many cases they have online recommendations from people they work for and co-workers. Often I can see their picture. On a company search, you will find information about the company itself. Many companies have their own LinkedIn page. Lots of them also provide a link to their Facebook page, where you can learn even more about their employees and their business philosophy. Former employees to whom you are connected can provide very helpful inside information. When you are researching a very large organization–like the NFL–you’ll find links to each of their divisions or locations, and those links will take you to more connections.
What I haven’t said yet is my most important point: You can’t get any value from LinkedIn unless you become a real part of it. LinkedIn is a powerful research tool for me because I invest time and energy into building my network of relationships within the LinkedIn community:
–I joined LinkedIn and completed an extensive profile.
–I use the site’s internal tools to invite people I meet to connect with me on LinkedIn.
–I receive requests to connect with people and I respond to those requests.
–I join LinkedIn groups and participate in discussion forms.
–The Whale Hunters has a company page on LinkedIn, and I build connections there as well.
As of today I have 559 connections linking me to more than 5 million professionals. 15,000 people within my extended network have joined LinkedIn just in the past three days! Basic membership to LinkedIn is free. I choose to pay a monthly fee for which I get more services– better searches, more introductions, the ability to connect directly with people through “InMail” and so forth. Three levels of premium service are available.
If you are scouting the whales on your whale chart, LinkedIn is a priceless resource. It will save you time and money and it will extend your reach of contacts exponentially.

(I just saw this on my Twitter home page and had to share
Twitter is a tool for “micro-blogging” or posting very short updates, comments or thoughts. In fact, since Twitter was designed to be very compatible with mobile phones through text messages, each update is limited to 140 characters. Truly, a micro-blog. Another way to think of Twitter is like a cross between instant messaging (IM) and a chat room, because it is an open forum, but you restrict it to the people with which you connect.
I have to admit I have not always been sold on Twitter. At first I did not get it at all. Then I thought I understood it, but thought it was stupid and useless. Then I used it a bit more and got some more followers and followed a few more people. Now I think it has some value, especially as a marketing and PR tool.
Ideas for How to Use Twitter for Marketing & PR
- Engage your CEO in social media. Social media is a great way to have a conversation with your market and make and mange connections with prospects, customers, bloggers and other influencers. But for a CEO, the typical routes to social media can be hard. Especially if you are a larger or global company. A CEO typically has little time to write a blog or answer lots of messages and friend requests on Facebook. I cannot tell you how many CEO blogs I have seen with only 1 or 2 posts because the CEO never had time to update the blog after the first couple entries. But, Twitter is limited to 140 characters per update, so it is all about short thoughts and comments. If your CEO can send a text message, they can use Twitter from anywhere in the world as a marketing and PR tool. Twitter is actually perfect for CEO or founder who is always on the road meeting with people and who has some interesting opinions on your market.
- Keep in touch with bloggers / media. It is really easy to follow someone on Twitter (see below). And you’ll be surprised how often they decide to follow you as well. In fact, I have lots of people I consider “famous” in the marketing and PR worlds following me. In my opinion, this is a way easier way to connect with influential people in the media than calling and emailing them.
- Monitor your company / brand on Twitter. A while back we noticed that Guy Kawasaki mentioned Website Grader on Twitter. Well, of course we had to let him know a bit more about Website Grader and maybe ask if he would also blog about it? The result was this blog article on Website Grader which drove a good amount of traffic and leads. (See below for a cool tip on how to easily monitor people talking about your company on Twitter.)
- Announce specials, deals or sales. If you are a retailer or anyone who often has special offers, you can use Twitter to announce these deals instantly to a large audience. You know those commercials from Southwest Airlines about that “Ding” application you could download and would then alert you about specials on flights? Well, Twitter can be used as a kind of free version of that. Dell and Woot have done just this type of marketing, with a lot of success.
- Live updates on events or conferences. If you participate in a large trade show or run your own corporate event, you can use Twitter to announce last minute changes, cool events that are happening (”Just announced, David Meerman Scott book signing in the exhibit hall until 11am”) and more. It is a great last minute marketing tool.
- Promote blog articles, webinars, interesting news and more. Its really easy to post a link to something in Twitter, and I often post links to blog articles on this blog, or other news articles relevant to HubSpot. A good idea is to post articles on other websites that are relevant to your business, like a customer success story or other PR coverage. If you have other content that is appealing to your audience like a free webinar, post links to those too.
Using Twitter for Marketing & PR – A Step-by-Step Guide
- Sign-up and post a profile. Visit Twitter and click on the “Get Started – Join” button in the middle. The rest is simple enough that I think you can figure it out without my help.
- Write some updates. The beauty of Twitter is that the 140 character limit is the great equalizer – I am about as good of a writer as Shakespeare on Twitter. Post a link to a news article you liked with a one line comment, mention an interesting thought you had, or tell everyone what you are cooking for dinner. Just write something.
- Make friends. Making friends on Twitter is pretty easy. Just surf around the web on your favorite blogs, people’s Facebook profiles etc, and when you see a Twitter box that tells you what they are doing click on it. That will bring you to their profile and then you just click on the “Follow” button on the top left and you are now following them. Most of the time they will then follow you back, and the audience for your 140 character insights will have grown by one person. You can get started by following me: Jim Grygar on Twitter. You can also click on the people that other people are following to find more people to follow.
- How to post URLs. Twitter is based on 140 character updates. If you have a really long URL, that doesn’t leave much room for Most people on Twitter use www.TinyURL.com to take a long URL and make it short. Give it a shot if you have a long URL that you want to market on Twitter.
- Monitor conversations about your company. Even if you don’t join Twitter yourself you can monitor what people are saying about any person, company or brand. This is quite useful from a marketing and PR standpoint. Twitter has a search engine that lets you do just this. For instance, here is a list of everyone who is talking about HubSpot on Twitter. You can subscribe to these searches by RSS to keep yourself updated. Another tip is that you can “follow” all the people you find talking about your company (just click on their username to go to their profile). If they are talking about your company, they would probably be pretty happy that someone from the company wants to follow them.
- How to “chat”. Using the @ symbol before someone’s Twitter username is how people have “conversations” in Twitter. This makes their username a link to their profile so other people can follow the conversation (sort of). For example if you wrote “@jimgrygar thanks for the cool blog article about Twitter today” that would be a way of telling me you liked this article. Try it out. It’s not IM (instant messaging), but it is sort of like a publicly broadcast IM service.

I searched long and hard for a very specific Twitter tool. There are an unlimited number of Twitter gadgets – but I wanted one that I could go to ANY web page – click one button – and create a tweet about it. I wanted this “magic” button to pull the page title, shorten the link and provide a short description. There were many tools and gadgets that did similar things, but none did that for absolutely any page.
Then I found it —
I discovered Twit It. Sounds innocent enough – but its wonderful. I will say up front that I’ve had to “re-install” it several times, but that takes about 2 minutes.

“Discover The Amazing Secrets About Getting
Pipelines Of Targeted Traffic At The Flick
Of A Switch, Stuffing Your Bank Account With
Affiliate Cash… At Virtually NO-Cost!”
All In Less Than 20 Minutes A Week…
From the secret lab of: Howie Schwartz
RE: Effective no-cost advertising
If you’ve been trying to sell products and services online for any amount of time, and have been pulling out your hair trying to get traffic then pay attention!
“Traffic Is King But How The Hell Do You Generate It?”
It kills me when I see a website selling good products and services having to shut down.
The website owners decided to end their dream of living the internet lifestyle after struggling to bring a significant amount of traffic to their online business.
Their products or services they are selling are good, but the amount of traffic they get sucks big time.
The entrepreneurs know that traffic is king and they’ve done whatever they can to generate it, but the fact is – they are not generating enough visitors with their hard work.
“Working Hard Does Not Guarantee Results!”
I’ve seen many motivated entrepreneurs reduced to tears after seeing their hard work bring in a trickle of traffic. That’s no joke – Mature men frustrated out their minds.
Here are some of the traffic generating strategies which they’ve used:
- Writing articles until their hands are numb and spend hours submitting them to article directories
- Search Engine Optimizing their websites and building back links whenever they have the time
- Participate on forums daily. Looking for threads to reply and show their expertise.
- Participate using the latest social media – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Squidoo
- Spending hundreds and even thousands of dollars on Adwords (Pay Per Click Marketing).
Don’t get me wrong. The above methods do work… but they take time.
The problem with traditional methods of generating traffic is that they require you to…
- write hundreds of articles to get a decent amount of traffic to your website.
- build hundreds/thousands of back links to have a significant impact on the search engines for your desired keywords
- participate every day on forums to build up your reputation so that people will buy from you
- spend hours on each social media platform to build trust and get people to visit your website
All these traffic generating methods work… but need a lot of effort and take up a lot of time.
You as an entrepreneur need instant results. You can’t wait because you need the money now.
Adwords and other pay per click marketing tools, work very fast. You can almost instantly get targeted traffic to your website BUT… you need to pay for this traffic!
If you don’t know how to write a good ad and are new to pay per click marketing, then you’ll need to burn a lot of money first, before finding the correct ad that will bring profits for you.
So before you make any money, you need to spend thousands of dollars on Adwords first.
“Damn It! So Is There Any Such Thing As Free Instant Traffic?”
Fortunately there is light at the end of the tunnel…
I will reveal how you can get targeted prospects to your website and buy from you. An easy method that doesn’t break your bank or have you slaving long hours into the night.
The method I will reveal is:
- FREE of charge
- takes less than 20 minutes of your time
- helps you find out what your most effective ads are
- improve your search engine rankings
- helps you bring in sales while you carry on writing articles and building back links to your website
Does this sound to good to be true? Sounds like a scam? I promise you it is not.
Successful marketers have been using this method secretly, sucking cash online, building a huge list of customers.
The method is using classified ads to promote your products and services.
“The Secrets To Using Classified Ads”
If you’ve tried using classified ads in the past and haven’t had much success with it – don’t jump into conclusions just yet.
Although placing classified ads is free, it is very effective. You just need to know how to do it correctly.
Some people are convinced that classified ads don’t work because:
- it is free
- it is not marketed as being an effective method
- they’ve tried posting to few classified websites and have had no response
Being free does not mean that the method is crap. Search engine marketing on Google is free and it’s very effective if you’re ranked high enough for your keywords.
There are other methods that are very popular now including Facebook, Twitter, Adwords, MySpace, Squidoo etc…
But have you had much success with the above? If not then you need to understand how classified ads can turn your business around.
