Guerrilla Marketing Campaigns take consumers by surprise, make a bold statement and are memorable. They are also extremely fun to execute, have a high return on investment and represent brands in an exceptionally positive light.
Grassroots has been in the guerrilla marketing business for over 35 years, so we’ve rolled out numerous outstanding and timeless campaigns.
Let’s look at the best guerrilla marketing campaigns we have launched.
