Mechanical- attach meters to TVs, cable boxes, satellites to record what programs are being watched. Retailers can attach it to checkouts to record products purchased. Customer Relationship Management (CRM)- manage detailed information about individual customers and carefully managing customer touch points to maximize customer loyalty. Consists of software and analysis tools from companies that integrate customer and marketplace information. This marketing research information applies to small businesses, nonprofit organizations and international marketing. Small businesses& NPO’s can use these research strategies in a less formal matter at little or no expense. International researchers follow the same guidelines as domestic but they face more problems dealing with diversity, economic development, cultures and customs, and buying patterns. Intrusions on Consumer Privacy Some are positive about interviews and questionnaires but most don’t enjoy it. Some believe they could track our every move, feelings, and searches. Marketers must be careful to not cross the line.
