Lightbulb Wanted: Guerilla Marketing

Credit to Sean for this idea! We don't have a lot of money for advertising and we love the idea of 'word of mouth' marketing. So we thought it would be fun to build a cool looking flyer for people to leave in interesting locations to get the word out...

Ideal locales might be:
  • Universities / community colleges.
  • Anywhere near financial districts (NYC, London anyone?)
  • Pubs & bars frequented by people who invest.
  • Stock investing group meetups.
  • Anywhere you see a busy public bulletin board.
  • AA meetings? LOL.
  • Surprise us!
If you put these up for us please take a photo and post it in this thread! We would love to see where you guys are putting these and you will likely earn some Rep points with the group here

Below are PDFs suitable for printing in both standard 8.5x11 and A4 sizes (for outside North America). Simply print them off on your inket printer on glossy paper and cut them in half.

Below are the source materials in PSD format if anyone wants to change the headlines on the flyers (feel free!). Again these are in both standard and A4 sizes. Logo font also included.

Also see below for a JPG of what the flyer will look like.

Please please please Iraq! Oh man that would just freaking rule.

Anybody here in NYC?

I'll get a few in some 'interesting places' here in Bangkok this weekend and post a photo to get this started.

Nice
I have made some business cards as generally loads of people I know are in financial world. It is however simply our current bull & bear logo, coloured, just on "egg shell white" (get it? avatar) business cards.

Then just the weblink. Understated and pretty neat. BUT a better logo idea - I will use that so interested
cheers
