What Is Guerrilla Marketing?

The “Gorilla” in Gorilla Agency comes from the concept of guerrilla marketing. Fun fact: most people don’t ask about our business name and are cool with seeing the gorillas and bananas on the walls when they come to visit. For those who do ask, the relationship to guerrilla marketing isn’t much of an explanation in and of itself. So what is guerrilla marketing anyway?

Guerrilla marketing is high impact, low cost marketing solutions utilizing creativity and hard work instead of excess money.

Guerrilla marketing in turn comes from guerrilla warfare – where small, non-military groups use hit-and-run, ambush style tactics to fight larger and more traditional militaries. An army otherwise prepared for battle with another large army could be crippled by surprise raids, sabotage and other petty-warfare tactics from guerrilla groups a percentage of its size. These warriors themselves were often referred to as guerrillas.

Guerrilla marketing has come to embody the same rebellious success against more traditional (and expensive) marketing tactics that guerrilla warriors had against large armies. Traditionally, guerrilla marketing strategies are extremely creative and clever – and best understood when observed firsthand (Note: the design in the cover photo was created by Peter Shack at Bates Y&R in Copenhagen, Denmark).
