Amazing examples of guerrilla marketing… Awesome stuff…

Guerrilla marketing “works because it’s simple to understand, easy to implement and outrageously inexpensive,” says Jay Conrad Levinson, the man who coined the phrase.

Consumers have grown immune to big budget advertising, but marketers that expend a bit of time and effort — rather than piles of money — can generate effective results with inexpensive, small-scale stunts.

Take a look through our gallery of guerrilla and street marketing examples, where promotions costing no more than a few dollars can have a big impact on the consumers. Let us know which you think are the most effective in the comments below.

I always believed Android was the other one… People who could not get IPhone went for Android. Smile This survey just confirms that. IPhone is just going to take over the phone market.

For Blackberry users it’s 66%, and nearly a quarter are willing to stand in line to get one

We’re not familiar with the work of uSamp, a high-tech online research firm based in Los Angeles, but if the results of the survey (PDF) they released last week are accurate, Research in Motion (RIMM) is in trouble and the run on Google (GOOG) Android phones is about to hit a wall.

Drawing from a pool of 4.7 million panelists, uSamp asked a sample of 727 AT&T (T) and Verizon (VZ) smartphone owners how likely they were to switch to Verizon’s version of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone next Thursday, Feb. 10, the first day it goes on sale.

The results are posted in full below the fold. The key findings:

  • Among Android owners, 44% are either very likely (19%) or somewhat likely (25%) to buy an iPhone on Feb. 10.
  • Among RIM owners, 66% are very likely (32%) or somewhat likely (34%) to switch on Day One.
  • Nearly a quarter (24%) of the Android and RIM switchers say they’d be willing to stand in line to get one of the first Verizon iPhones.
  • Owners of AT&T (T) iPhones are less likely to switch (8% very likely, 18% somewhat) but the switchers are more likely (29%) than RIM or Android owners to stand in line that first day. Perhaps they have more practice queuing up for an iPhone.

Recently started reading blog on compete.com really good stuff. I found this post very interesting. I think this is because Apple has not launched a new version of IPhone and Blackberry had launched new products hence there is more traffic on that site. But who know… :):) 

The chart below shows traffic to U.S. phone-specific portions* of each manufacturer’s website between July 2008 and February 2009.

Presentations use to be so monotonous. They start from slide 1 and end with last slide. I have always hated this flow. I like my presentations to be dynamic. I like to change the flow based on my audience. I always struggled with current Powerpoint options to achieve this. I have tried many things like remembering slide numbers to jump to various sections in my presentations or creating links or buttons to jump between slides. All these options just don’t work. But recently Microsoft Office team released a new add-in for Powerpoint called pptPlex.

pptPlex is innovation at its best. pptPlex now allows you to make your presentations dynamic without spending more than 3-5 minutes per presentation. Basically you just define your sections and the add-in does the rest.. I am in love with this tool I will highly recommend you check this out especially if you give presentations you have to take a peek. Following are few good videos to get you started. You can download the add-in at http://www.officelabs.com/Pages/Default.aspx
