Top 5 Craziest Marketing Stunts
No matter what your job is, if you blog or if you promote affiliate links, you will always need to be marketing and advertising. Today you will see some of the strangest and most abnormal marketing techniques, commonly called Guerrilla Marketing, that I have been able to find. I could have done a top 100 very easily but I would like to show you these and to see what you can come up with. I have been thinking about this for quite a while but I decided to post it today because the ProBlogger challenge today is to write a list. What perfect timing!
Panasonic Vertical Tennis
This is one very crazy marketing idea. Vertical Tennis! Watch this video and you will see why I think it is so amazing.
- Graffiti WonderlandI do not have any examples, please tell me if you do, of where graffiti has been used for marketing purposes. However I do have examples of amazing art that would certainly have give the artists some publicity!
- Dean Hunt and His Killer Bunnies You may have heard of Dean, I certainly have. This guy charges $1 million for reviews, “6 million RSS subscribers” and his website is run by killer bunnies! Why? Because he is a marketing extraordinaire. What is easier to remember: “Dean Hunt the marketing guru” or “Dean Hunt the guy with the bunnies”? This is a really good example of how to market yourself or product in a way that people will remember but without spending a penny.
- Goodwood Festival of SpeedThis is an event that I go to most years, as it is just down the road. Every year they have a massive statue that changes each year. You can see a few examples below. I believe that this is a very good marketing strategy as different companies sponsor, perhaps even make, the statue so they always try to compete with the one made the year before.
What is the best marketing stunt that you have seen? One day I would love to try something like this, perhaps even for Success Circuit. Please let me know what you think!
Also, for those of you wondering which elevator pitch I choose… I didn’t. I have decided to keep my tagline, “Inspiring your Success”, and improvise depending on who I am speaking to. Remember, everybody is different.
