Crazy marketing ideas


Just found a little scrap of paper where I’d written a bunch of wacky marketing ideas when I was bored once at a conference. They’re kind of fun!
NB I take no responsibility if you do any of these (but I do want to see the photos!)

  • Have a massive flag that you hang from all different sites around London
  • Give out free branded brolleys when raining
  • Have group of cheerleaders that perform around London
  • Challenge competitors to a duel
  • Wear hats that blow coloured bubbles
  • Create grassed areas and beaches
  • Change your name by deed pole
  • ‘Pimpup’ your car, house, hair, suit etc into something wildly extravagant
  • Fly the biggest kite ever in Hyde Park
  • World record juggle, unicycle, pogo hop, leapfrog
  • Hold a massive food fight where everyone is invited
  • Drive a tank in company colours
  • Hold a ferret race
  • Make a message using lights in disused buildings
  • Tattoo your head

    It would see the best way to get a BBC news reporter standing on the edge of your territory is to ban the BBC.
