A Common Ground in Guerilla Marketing – State of Research and Further Research Opportunities

Lennart Wendland, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg (Masterarbeit)

Guerilla Marketing is a cloudy concept. While practitioners and scientists increasingly use it in their practice, its definition
remains not straightforward. This thesis builds a common ground in Guerilla Marketing through clearing up the field. Guerilla
Marketing is defined and an overall model is presented that integrates previous efforts. This model has some advantages. Most
strikingly, it introduces two highly relevant mediators which include recipient’s behavior into the model.
