17 Guerrilla Marketing Ideas for Your Website

Guerrilla marketing is a term used to describe unconventional marketing tactics, particularly those of low-cost or no-cost.


We’ve all heard the key tips for promoting a website, but this article is guaranteed to have some new ideas for you. Some are clever, some are crazy, a few are farcical (if you wonder whether I’m joking, I probably am!). I think these seventeen unconventional ideas should get you thinking differently about the way you promote your website.

Guerrilla marketing for Website Owners

1. T-shirt Marketing. Get a T-shirt made with your website’s logo and URL on it. Offer the T-shirt as a prize in a competition. If the T-shirt looks decent the winner will wear it and act as a walking billboard for your blog. (You can get a T-shirt made at CustomInk.com, though there are plenty of websites that do this).

2. Bumper stickers for all. Mail out bumper stickers for your website to readers who want one. The price of an envelope is not much to pay for some advertising on busy roads. (You can get custom stickers made up at Kinko’s or your local equivalent).

3. Post some bills. Stick a poster about your website on your work or school’s noticeboard. You probably want to wait until no-one is around before you try this one.

4. The browser trick. Go to your local library, internet cafe or computer room and set your website as the default browser homepage on all the computers you can easily access. I can’t help you when it comes to dealing with tetchy librarians, however.

5. Release a free eBook. Link back to your website throughout and encourage sharing. If the eBook is good it could go viral and drive traffic back to you.

6. Go to the beach and write your website’s address in the sand (preferably out of the way of the rising tide, and large enough to be seen by passing airplanes.)

7. Run a competition to win items you own and could do without. Instead of auctioning CDs, furniture, art, video games etc. on eBay, why not use them to build your website?

8. Carry around blank business cards with your website’s URL on them. You can hand out a card whenever your website comes up in conversation — or whenever you bring it up.

9. Get your website URL tattooed on a visible part of your body. Warning: this might look a little dated if the no-www movement wins out in future. Scared of the needle? A temporary tattoo or permanent marker will do the trick. Better yet, draw the URL on someone else, preferably while they’re asleep.

10. Run a competition and make the prize a service you’ll perform. This could be marketing consulting, graphic design, a guest-post, or some other service which utilizes your own individual expertise.

11. Organize a meet-up for webmasters and bloggers in your area and use it as an opportunity to network.

12. Leave fliers for your website at niche hot-spots. For example: leave fliers for a personal finance website outside the economics faculty of your local university, or fliers for a book review website outside a library.

13. Participate in forums related to your niche. Drive traffic back to your website through your forum signature.

14. Run a competition to win advertising space on your site. This is yet another no-cost prize you can use to market your website: free for you but valuable for others.

15. Take out an ad in your local newspaper. They’re often pretty cheap and local papers can have a circulation of thousands.

16. Add your website’s URL to the signature of each email account you use. If appropriate add a funny comment or quote to draw people’s attention.

17. Wear your URL. Make a custom hat, T-shirt or hoodie with your URL on it. This is bound to be a conversation starter.

Guest blogging is also an excellent method of getting exposue for your site specifically within a certain niche. Usually this can be done yourself but it is immensely time consuming, in these case try a guest posting service. Have you used any unconventional strategies to promote your site?

    Some of these can definitely be classified as “guerrilla” no doubt. I wouldn’t try a whole lot of them though, just too much effort.

    I prefer a good link bait article any day 😉

  2. Daniel on November 19th, 2007 11:17 am

    Hyder, yeah I guess it depends on the type of website. Some of these tactics are not appropriate for a simple blog, for instance, but they might be very efficient if you have an ecommer site or if you provide some online service.

  3. Ramkarthik on November 19th, 2007 11:37 am

    18. Tell your friends to blog about it.

    The beach idea was a very different and it can get a couple of visitors. Good out of box thinking.

    One thing I want to tell is that, there is nothing in BOLD in the 16th point. It looks a bit odd when we see along with the other points.

    Anyway, it a great post. Cheers.

  4. Sudarshan on November 19th, 2007 12:21 pm

    It sure is a guerrilla idea….LOL none can be tried except a few

  5. Lara Saad on November 19th, 2007 1:03 pm

    Great ideas.. I am sure I will try some of them.


  6. Skellie on November 19th, 2007 1:20 pm

    I think that’s a bit of an exaggeration ;). Some of them might not be to your taste (and aren’t mean to be), but none of them are impossible!

  7. Tamar Weinberg on November 19th, 2007 1:50 pm

    Not many people use the bumper sticker method. I think that if it’s a computer-related product, they should provide laptop stickers 😉 I’m trying to get my laptop decorated for trade shows and conferences and it’s been tough!

  8. JohnTP on November 19th, 2007 2:55 pm

    Skellie- Great post, I think I will try number 14 soon 😉

    btw, I am really enjoying your guest posts on other blogs I read.

  9. Mohsin on November 19th, 2007 4:55 pm

    Hilarious! I wouldn’t mind using the technique number 9 on someone while they are asleep. 😉 lol

  10. matt on November 19th, 2007 5:28 pm

    I put my site in my e-mail signature and I know that I get people looking at it. I even know that when people forward my e-mail address that sometimes who they have fowarded an e-mail to look at my site

  11. engtech on November 19th, 2007 5:55 pm

    One of my favorites:

    put a flyer/business card in niche related library books

  12. DrSteve on November 19th, 2007 5:58 pm

    Nice ideas – I like the pre-internet methods in particular. The T-shirt idea is a winner – who couldn’t use another T-shirt?
    Here’s another old idea from the world of marketing – SEX SELLS!!
    I write about the most fascinating topic of all – human psychology in everyday life. And I’ve noticed how any article on sex brings new readers.
    These are not readers mis-directed in their porn-trawling (as can be determined by their search-words, etc).
    I’m not saying include something off-colur just get a few prurient visitors – that would only damage your site, of course. But if you have something interesting to say about sex (and if it’s relevant to your site!) go for it.

  13. Cannabis Junction on November 19th, 2007 6:41 pm

    I’ve used the browser trick many years before. It works.

  14. Sujan Patel on November 19th, 2007 7:03 pm

    These are awesome tips. While at the library you might also want to put your business card in books that your target audience might read.

  15. Jonk : Bargains on November 19th, 2007 10:37 pm

    I’m surprised that you haven’t mentioned using the local media to gain publicity.

    Either pull a stunt, run a promotion or even have one of those warm success stories “Local man makes it big on the net”

    I’ve done this for another site to the tune of 40,000 visitors but ……. even for 40,000 visitors I didn’t think it was worth the effort. You can get more visitors using easier methods.

  16. Daniel on November 19th, 2007 11:34 pm

    Good point Jonk, I should try that sometime.

  17. Ben on November 20th, 2007 6:10 am

    Nice, I’m enjoying the new Blog. Excellent ideas, well most anyway. I’ve done the beach sand thing previously, just for fun. I’ve also written the URL on the bathroom walls of a few of the local watering holes along with all the other graffiti.

  18. Gabrielle on November 20th, 2007 6:35 am

    Nice article.These seventeen unconventional ideas are different from other ideas of internet marketing to generate more website traffic.when you get traffic to your website you can convert that traffic into leads.

  19. E. I. Sanchez on November 20th, 2007 3:44 pm

    The T-Shirt is a bit expensive at about 20 bucks. Most bloggers won’t be able to afford it. That said, I’ve worn mine around and it has paid off…


  20. Nathaniel on November 20th, 2007 5:59 pm

    I sell plenty of t-shirts and now whenever I go out into public, I’m usually wearing one of them. They’re pretty funny too, so they do tend to spark up conversation about them. Even if they don’t, I still catch people glancing at the more controversial designs.

    If the T-shirts are funny or controversial you could also leave one or two at local high schools and/or colleges. I’m seriously thinking about doing just this. The only discouragement is the price.

    I am certainly going to use some of these tactics, and I actually came up with many of them on my own. I just might have to try the browser homepage trick.

    It is also very useful to comment on other people’s blogs. If you leave intriguing comments then people will follow them back to you. Getting out there and participating in the online community really makes a world of difference.

  21. Rubab on November 20th, 2007 10:52 pm

    investment is required to apply these tactics, bloggers tend to earn money without spending single penny. otherwise good tips.

  22. Joy on November 21st, 2007 3:57 pm

    These are good tips..I like the sand advertising..^^..it’s fresh and original..^^

    Thanks Skellie for sharing these tips..^^

  23. Gyutae Park on November 21st, 2007 5:24 pm

    These are some awesome ideas. I actually wrote a post covering the tshirt marketing strategy here: http://www.winningtheweb.com/guerilla-marketing-tactic-1-the-tshirt.php

    Let me know what you think.

  24. Lee Parker on November 21st, 2007 8:55 pm

    #20? Donate a shirt and a service/product at events you attend for their raffles and Chinese auctions. It’s easy for me because I print tee shirts. Last week end I gave away my logo tee shirt and a photo tee at a craft show. And like Gyutae Park said in http://www.winningtheweb.com/guerilla-marketing-tactic-1-the-tshirt.php
    tees aren’t expensive.

    I always do 8,16,17 + 20. For 6, I’ll have to get a shorter URL…we have small beaches where I live. And I’ll definitely try some of the other ideas.

    Thanks for posting these.

  25. esvl on November 24th, 2007 11:23 am

    These are great ideas, specially if you have a local website for the specific area you live in.

  28. Pam Tilden on November 26th, 2007 7:46 pm

    Yah, I could see all of them working.
    If I’d use them all, I’m not too sure.

  29. Niz on December 1st, 2007 6:18 pm

    Ok, my favorite is the 8th one. Very practical, nothing much to do, but seems to be very effective.

  30. Gopinath M on December 2nd, 2007 3:04 pm

    Excellent ideas…never tried anyone of these. I’m going to try now…

  31. richard rabins on December 7th, 2007 4:52 am

  32. Logo design maniac on December 14th, 2007 3:52 pm

    How about getting a paint bucket to the roof of some house and painting URL on the roof? After some time it will be visible via Google Earth :)

  33. Minic Rivera on January 3rd, 2008 4:05 pm

    How about posting in a related post like this and inviting people to visit your site… like…

    “Hi! Since this is about Guerilla Marketing Ideas, I would like to invite you to visit my site at http://www.webbyist.com. Thanks and see you there!”

    Very informative post. I will definitely try some.

    It is a good topic and nice discussions. 17 marketing ideas are very easy to understand and easy to implement to our business

  35. Michael Werner on January 12th, 2008 5:39 pm

    Cool beans.

    One technique I love to use with telemarketers . . . when they call, I tell them I have a policy that they must check out my website before I’m able to speak with them.

    Then, I hang up.

    About 1 out of 20 will actually call me back and tell me about the website I referred them to.

  36. CatherineL on January 17th, 2008 6:06 am

    Great ideas. But, I’m wondering if it might be better to ask permission for some of them? Many workplaces will let you put posters on their work notice board. I’ve mailed larger business before and they’re often happy to do so – especially if you provide a discount or incentive for their staff.

    You could also bribe checkout workers at your local supermarket to put your flyers in the grocery bags.

  37. Debby Banning on March 3rd, 2008 9:24 pm

    I particularly like number 6! I would also suggest writing your website smaller in the sand and taking a picture of it. Then post your picture in the different photo sites on the net. For me… my eyes always gravitate to pictures that have writing in beach sand. Probably because I love the beach!!

  38. charley on March 7th, 2008 4:57 am

    The beach idea was a very different and it can get a couple of visitors. Good out of box thinking.

  41. Ed D on April 14th, 2008 1:35 am

    These are all great ideas! I really like the library one. I actually started a guerrilla marketing ideas list on a marketing wiki. Please visit it and add your ideas:

  42. interactive agency on July 28th, 2008 5:48 am

    I’m not sure I would call these guerrilla but it’s not a bad start. The key in all of this is finding unique new ways to generate an increasing level of traffic from a increasingly less interested audience.

  43. willie on August 3rd, 2008 10:10 am

    this is nice im enjoying it!

  44. Mark Bennet on August 4th, 2008 3:05 pm

    I truly enjoy reading your article. It is filled with great advice that helps me a lot. Not to mention it is enjoyable to read as well :)

    Try a good social media campaign will surely boost traffic (mind that traffic will most likely be sales also). Sandy Rowley, a friend of my who develops social networking sites, also agreed on the same thing. He also think we need to have something to retain those customers. Believe me, if it is done properly, it’ll be more than great for business.

    And you’d probably won’t have to tattoo your site’s address…
    Just kidding :) Great post, I truly enjoyed it.

  45. Scott on August 5th, 2008 10:41 pm

    I’ve done #4 whenever we would go on vacations. I would use hotel computers in the lobby and make Great Talents the home page :)

  47. Hillel on August 31st, 2008 6:53 am

    I know someone who did the t-shirt thing. He walked around a mall for hours doing nothing, just walking around so people could see his t-shirt. He said that when he checked his stats later that evening – his stats went up and the visitors were from his area and more then that – they stayed on his site for a nice period of time.

  48. SEO Training on August 31st, 2008 10:20 am

    You can buy decals for your car’s back window for about $30. I got one on ebay with my web site address. Believe it or not it does generate traffic from traffic !

    Another tip is to print some glossy pages and insert them in in-flight magazines whenever you travel by plane. Same- same with the magazines in doctors and dentists waiting rooms and appropriate books in you local library.

  49. Wedding Celebrant Bribie Island on October 12th, 2008 3:40 am

    Free balloons with the web site address on them are a great give-away and cheap to produce. Very good for family or children oriented web sites. I Stumble you for your efforts.

    Hahaa.. really funny! My Grandma likes the tatoo idea! (Better yet, draw the URL on someone else, preferably while they’re asleep). You really make my day.. I just can’t stop laughing… haha..

  53. kayla on February 19th, 2009 5:37 pm

    I’m in the process of opening my homemade craft and sewing business. I’m going to make pillows, blankets, etc. I thought that it would be a cute idea to make pillows to support my business, having my business name and website URL on it, and putting it them on the chairs and benches of my local mall and clothing stores.

    My favourite one!

    4. The browser trick. Go to your local library, internet cafe or computer room and set your website as the default browser homepage on all the computers you can easily access. I can’t help you when it comes to dealing with tetchy librarians, however.

  60. Mary on October 13th, 2009 10:15 pm

    Another Guerrilla marketing site for T-shirt Marketing. Get a T-shirt made with your website’s logo and URL on it. Offer the T-shirt as a prize in a competition. If the T-shirt looks decent the winner will wear it and act as a walking billboard for your blog. (You can get a T-shirt made at http://www.thetdesigner.com, though there are plenty of websites that do this).

  61. Tom on November 18th, 2009 4:36 pm

    Promotional products are a great way to do it but try to stick out from the crowd. Dont just do pens like everyone else. does… trust me be unique, topical and current.

    for instance now is a great time to do calendars, hooded sweatshirts and hand sanitizers.

    also green / or eco friendly products are great right now:

  62. Beverly on November 24th, 2009 4:43 am

    All of these ideas are great. A good way to get visitors to your site is by writing articles in your blog using long tail keywords and make it local by stating the name of your town in the title. You can publish articles free by using the article directories. Search the internet for free article directories.
    Visit my site: http://www.123workfromhomenow.com and read some of the articles I have published.

  63. Hire Truck on December 11th, 2009 12:58 am

    get a hire truck and attach banners with your logo and url to the sides of the truck, then drive around town tooting your horn!

  64. Mike on December 20th, 2009 7:28 am

    All great ideas and all but a lot of them can only be applied for general purpose and national sites… Any suggestions for a service provider in a local market? http://www.getyourfloors.com it’s my site, the name is catchy but…. hard to get traffic to it.

  65. simplistic thoughts on January 14th, 2010 7:47 am

    Great list. Changing the home page of public computers is very interesting, though I think most are set now so they can’t be changed.

  67. Tim Andren on February 24th, 2010 12:08 am

    There’s a fine line between guerilla marketing ideas and being annoying. Most of these ideas are good ones, but does your business brand want to be associated with some of them – probably not.

    The argument about linkbaiting continues, but one the real question remains…how else do you increase the likelihood that someone will filter the noise and read your work?

  68. John on March 15th, 2010 9:14 pm

    If you’re at the airport, leave a few around the waiting areas and food court. When you’re on the plane put them in some magazines. Also works at train stations/bus terminals.

    Also, put the URL on mailing address labels and stick on the back of toilet stall doors and other places where people are trapped.

    The beach idea is neat. I always write my URL on the backpage of the free newspaper on the way to work. Like the scale of your idea.

    A few more ideas for everyone =)

    – Create a software program and give it away for free.

    – Purchase the misspellings or variations of your domain name, or those of your competitors.

    – Buy a domain name related to your niche that is already receiving traffic and forward it to your site.

    – Answer people’s questions on http://www.answers.yahoo.com.

    – Buy a pair of sandals; get your website engraved on the bottom and walk on the beach, stomp in the mud or play in the snow.

    It’s very tempting to think that taking small local action would affect traffic for your website in some way, but it often turns out to be a waste of time and money.

    I can tell you we have done many of these things (t-shirts, flyers, browser stuff, etc.) as well as street fairs and have never converted even one prospect to an online sale.

    Concentrate your marketing efforts where you get the best return on your investment. Even posting flyers takes time you could be using in building backlinks to your site.

    All the points are nice and I am very much agree with T-Shirts , if we could make the great looking T-shirt we will able to have good number of people to wear it.

    I know it’s a very late reply, but I used a company called http://www.lap-rap.com to provide me with a custom laptop rap/sticker for a recent trade show.

    Hope this helps

    Good ideas to get the ball rolling. For me, Guerrilla Marketing is a launchpad for proverbial rockets: Each has a specified purpose and, when launched, continue to do their own thing. What’s important isn’t to wait around to see how the mission goes. You need to immediately begin preparing that next rocket, with a new mission. And – if you’re really adept – I believe that traditional marketing, in the long term can be avoided entirely.

    Releasing an e-book is a great idea. To add to that, I think, if e-books are taking too long to create and write content for, you can always create how-to articles and e-zines. These generally take less time to create. Although, if you have plenty of time, you can always create e-books and e-zines to complement each other. The nice thing about this tactic is that it allows you to create content that has the ability to be published on the internet and as tangible objects as well.

    One clever way is by getting a stamp with your website url on it. A mate of mine used this technique, stamping his phone number on girls’ arms and faces during parties.

    My favourite tip from the above list is forum marketing. Stay active in a couple of forums within your niche and position yourself as an expert by offering sound advice. It won’t take that long to start driving loads of traffic to your blog especially if the blogs are popular.

    great work :)

    Ok, my favorite is the 8th one. Very practical, nothing much to do, but seems to be very effective.

    Talking about guerilla marketing I am searching for ideas! We are trying to be creative as you can see on our website!

    I will keep you informed for our ideas!

  114. Paul Darby on April 17th, 2012 10:58 am

    Being that we all need advertising… we don’t have a website business if no one is coming to it, or correction we may have one but it isn’t successful unless we have a few things that are happening, one of which is lot’s of new poeple coming to see what is being offered.

    That being said, I love TV advertising – I found a very cheap place to advertise on TV cheap and fast – and it will get any website hundreds of thousands of new people seeing your site.

    How awesome is that? The service I found is below, but first please remember your website’s landing page should have an email capture form, a headline of compelling interest and some thing that people with money want to buy!

    I’ve read a few good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you put to make such a wonderful informative website….

  116. Mike Curry on July 1st, 2012 7:45 pm

    Wow, these are off the wall crazy LOL. I think the best one by far is write your company name in the sand. I would actually rent a plane and have them run your website or company name on a banner across the beach during the summer.

  117. Dan on July 21st, 2012 12:34 pm

    great tips love the ideas

  118. Sheree on October 4th, 2012 4:16 pm

    Some great ideas here – they won’t apply to all websites but you can pick & chose the ones that suit & apply your own twist to them. Thanks!
