The word “guerrilla,” in its written form, seems very intense. It conjures images of rebellion and conflict. Put it next to the word “marketing,” and it makes a lot of people ask, “Huh?”

But guerrilla marketing isn’t some sort of combative form of communication. After all, that would be highly disruptive, which violates the inbound methodology. In fact, it’s actually a very unconventional form of inbound marketing, in that it raises brand awareness among large audiences, without interrupting them.

Process manufacturing is a production method that creates goods by combining supplies, ingredients or raw materials using a formula or recipe. It is frequently used in industries that produce bulk quantities of goods, such as food, beverages, refined oil, gasoline, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and plastics.

The production process often requires a thermal or chemical conversion, such as with heat, time or pressure. As a result, a product created through process manufacturing cannot be disassembled into its constituent parts. For example, once it is produced, a soft drink cannot be broken down into its separate ingredients.

Process manufacturing relies on the flow of sequential steps, with the completion of one step leading to the start of the next step. Process manufacturers often rely on tracing and scheduling tools and software to maintain peak operational efficiency.

“People do not buy goods and services. They buy relations, stories, and magic.”

Everything about marketing used to be magic, from concept and strategy to creation and implementation.

Once upon a time, it was difficult to find a worthy vendor who could produce and implement high-quality advertising.

Now, it’s never been cheaper, simpler, or more readily available.

To put it plainly — our magic is shrinking.

With demand for attention on the rise and overwhelming product options on the market, consumers are beginning to lose sight of who they can trust.

To filter the noise, they’re turning to ad blockers, cord cutting, and even media fasting (yes, that’s a thing).

Consumers taking such extreme measures to avoid advertising makes it increasingly more difficult for brands to keep up with the digital landscape.

So where do you turn?

The smart move would

different properties, in general ceramics are corrosion-resistant and
