Existují nějaká pravidla guerrilly? Že by byla zlatá?

Pravidla či spíše doporučení pro použití Guerrilly jsou vkusně shrnuty v knize J. C. Levinsona,  Guerrilla Marketing Excellence: The 50 Golden Rules for Small-business Success[1]. Tato kniha by neměla chybět v knihovně žádného marketéra, zabývajícího se guerilla marketingem.



  • Zavádění nových produktů a služeb
    Zavádíte-li do svého sortimentu něco nového, nadšeně veřejnosti oznamte, že jde o novinku a jasně vysvětlete, co je na ní dobrého.
  • Konkurenční výhody
    Identifikujte nebo si vytvořte vlastní konkurenční výhody a na ty potom soustřeďte svůj marketing.
  • Načasování
    Dbejte na dobré načasování; správný marketing, zaměřený na správné lidi, je správný pouze tehdy, je-li správné i jeho načasování.
  • Jak být zajímavý?
    Povinností vašeho marketingu je zaujmout pozornost a udržet zájem co nejvyššího počtu perspektivních zájemců.
  • Poctivost
    Dělejte vše, co je ve vašich silách, pro to, abyste používali marketingových metod a taktik, které nemůže nikdo obvinit z nepoctivosti.

Následuje seznam Levinsonových 50ti Zlatých pravidel v AJ:

  • 3. What People Really Buy
    Gear your marketing to people already in the market, and know what they really buy other than instant gratification.
  • 4. Solving Problems
