Gonzo Marketing is a knuckle-whitening ride to the place where social criticism, biting satire, and serious commerce meet and where the outdated ideals of mass marketing and broadcast media are being left in the dust. As master of ceremonies at the wake for traditional one-size-fits-all marketing, Chris Locke has assembled a unique guest list, from Geoffrey Chaucer to Hunter S. Thompson, to guide us through the revolution that is rocking business today, as people connect on the Web to form powerful micro-markets. These networked communities, based on candor, trust, passion, and a general disdain for anything that smacks of corporate smugness, reflect much deeper trends in our culture, which Locke illuminates with his characteristic wit.
Just as gonzo journalism rose in response to "objective" news standards that claimed to foster fairness but in practice discouraged writers from speaking their minds in their own voices, so too does gonzo marketing call fro a similar response to assumptions about consumer behavior that no longer relate to how people actually live their lives.
"Gonzo Marketing" is not yet-another nostrum for hoodwinking the unwary. It's about market advocacy. It describes how "the artist formerly known as advertising" must do a 180. It's about transforming the marketing message from "we want your money" to "we share your interests". It's about tapping into, listening to, and even forming alliances with emerging on-line markets, who probably know more about your company than you do. It's a hip-hop cover of boring old best practices played backwards. The paradox is that companies that support and promote these communities can have everything they've always wanted: greater market share, customer loyalty, brand equity.
Irreverent, penetrating, profoundly simple, and on-the-money, "Gonzo Marketing" is the raucous wake-up call that no one interested in any aspect of 21st Century business - from the trading floor right up to the boardroom - can afford to ignore.
