Small businesses are different to corporations and their marketing strategy needs to meet the demands of a smaller budget as well.
What is guerrilla marketing?
Guerrilla marketing is a brand name started by Jay Conrad-Levinson - the "father" of small business marketing - in 1984 when he wrote the first comprehensive and popular book (Guerrilla Marketing Edition 1) about how small businesses can do highly successful marketing on a small budget. Since then more than 14-million books in the guerrilla marketing range have been sold and the principles of guerrilla marketing are used around the world.
