Guerilla Marketing

    Hey all,

    Just thought I'd share this thought. I've not done it much as of yet...

    But a lot of media is using "viral marketing" ideas. They will try to lead the person to a product by stringing them along a long and bumpy road of "clues."

    I've been writing down my website on scraps of paper, made to look like someone wrote it down intending to keep it.

    It says:


    What is fear?

    I doubt it'll work, but its just a thought.

    I've only placed them in about six different random locations.

    Anything new and unique is great!
    That sounds very innovative.
    I've heard of people getting their websites out on bumper stickers (you can print them yourself with your printer and the right kind of paper), flyers, etc.
    I think it's great that you are thinking outside the box.

    What is the site about?

    And putting it in random locations may be a little too... random.

    What if you slipped it in as a bookmark in an on topic book at the local library?

    Darwin's Laureate attempts to fuse a cohesive storyline, relevant links, pictures, and music videos into one medium.

    The over arching story line basically deals with fear. What it is, what it isn't, and why we probably want to have it.

    The main character in the novelette is a scientist who works for a small company who have found a way to basically numb impulses for fear. To help those who don't want to leave their houses, fly on airplanes, try a romantic fling after being taken advantage of...the format is still evolving, and I'm going to be doing a final "edit" here next week and freeze the parts I have done after one final touch up.

    And then of course, continue on with the story..

    I've placed the cards in bathroom stalls, in a book about domestic abuse, and another one about zombies.
