Guerrilla Marketing Online – Effective, Low Cost, High Impact Tactics
Times are tough across the boards. Yes, some people are thriving and having the best year they have ever had (like ours at Taz Solutions, Inc.) but I could only imagine the year we would have had had this been an up-economy. This downswing in spending has been causing massive cuts to marketing. These massive cuts to marketing are causing massive decreases in sales. Rather then sink your ship, now is the time to think out-side the box.
In both up and down economies there are a set of tools and tactics that we employ regadless. These tactics are referred to as Guerrilla Marketing.
