While discussing marketing with a client recently, I was asked "just what is Guerrilla Marketing and why is it different from what I have been doing"?

So here goes: Guerrilla marketing is stepped up marketing. It is more intense and more focused to produce more immediate results. Attorneys use guerrilla marketing when they are in a bind and need to produce business quickly. It is also a mental state. There is no lagging and whining with this type of marketing. The attorney must spend sufficient time and energy, even if it means working on Saturdays, Sundays and evenings to meet the goals.
