Three cool ways to add swag to your “guerilla" marketing strategy

Time to think outside of the box and inside of the swag.

We all know that there are a million different ways to market your business, and you probably don't have unlimited resources to do it. That's where guerrilla marketing comes in.

To get the most bang for your buck, you need to get creative. You probably can't afford to buy ad time during the Super Bowl, but you can brainstorm unconventional ideas and items that add a bit of surprise and delight to your marketing. Sure, guerrilla marketing does come with its risks; you don't want to bet the farm on an extremely experimental idea. But you'd be surprised how much attention you can encourage with some clever thinking and a wisely spent marketing budget.

Luckily for you, we here at The Icebox know all about creatively marketing businesses. It's what we do best! Whether you have a big trade show coming up, an annual sales meeting, or you just need some swag on hand to fully activate your brand, we're here for you. We have the coolest gear that will get your business into potential customers' hands and minds.

Try these three ideas on for size and see how they fit.


You're heading to your favorite watering hole after work for a happy hour or a networking event. Wouldn't it be great to have a useful item that promotes your business at the same time? Well you can!

At a promotional outdoor picnic, a sporting event, or just kicking back with a brewsky, you can come prepared. Bring a stack of promo koozies along that will keep everyone's beer cold, their hands warm, and your business front and center. It's win, win, win.


We all wear socks, so they might as well have your brand on them. Not only are they a functional, necessary product that you can dole out, but socks provide an excellent opportunity to flex those creative muscles.

We love the idea of handing out one branded, cool-looking sock at networking events and inspiring prospects to visit your booth to retrieve a matching one. How's that for thinking outside of the socks box?


Swag tees might sound like a golden oldie of an idea, but t-shirts are consistently one of the most effective promotional items you can use with your brand. And don't worry, there are plenty of ways to get guerrilla with some chill shirts.

What about group shirts that you and your team can wear together to events or trade shows? Or you can offer to give more cool swag out to people seen wearing one of your shirts, nudging people to sport your brand.

And you can always make different kinds of promotional shirts that your prospective customers might not expect. Performance shirts, tank tops, baby onesies, the sky's the limit!
