Shock & Awe & Hey, That’s Cool Guerrilla Marketing
Guerrilla marketing can lead to big results on a little budget, but it takes planning and precise execution to be successful. Feed SA, non-profit fighting hunger and poverty in Africa, placed an image of a needy child inside grocery store shopping carts. Each time a customer placed a food item in the cart, they were met with the hungry stare of a poverty-stricken child. A text ad as also placed on the cart handle with a link to the website with more information and a donation form.
