Ch. 2 – Book Notes Media companies of all types tend to pursue more “properties” if they are allowed to, creating “multiplatform media organizations” New and increased media options create clutter o Lower probability of any one message breaking through and making a real difference Marketers must adapt to consumers’ control over the information they choose to receive Web 2.0 – collaboration among Internet users Crowdsourcing – online distribution of tasks to groups of experts, enthusiast, and general users o Ex: “MyStarbucksIdea” – invited recommendations for new products and services to offer in stores Ch. 3 – Book Notes  First 2 decades of the 21 century experienced recessions, sparked by the bursting of the investment bubble o 2000: “ bubble”  People were thrilled with the endless potential of the Internet  many online businesses, many investors  Lack of effective Internet advertising  Investors would desert companies with little profit  High-tech sector of the stock market crashed  recession o 2007: collapse in real estate, “Great Recession”  Persistent unemployment  Spikes in gas prices  Consumers looked for ways to stay home, spend less, and increase security  Rise of E-business  Consumer-generated content (CGC) – advertisements made by the products end users o Ex: Doritos invited consumers to make their own advertisements and then choose one of the submissions to air during the Super Bowl  Web advertising growth will be fostered by: o Interactive technology o Wireless technology o Broadband technology  Branded entertainment – blending integrated marketing communications with entertainment (primarily with movies, TV, and music) o Advantages:  Not running into the consumer’s well trained resistance mechanism to ads  Viewers can’t fast forward through an ad without missing part of the movie/song  Greater freedom  Ex: in an ad, BMW has to use a disclaimer (“closed track, professional driver”) but in a movie, like the Italian Job, BMWs can be shown tearing around, without a disclaimer Lecture Notes: Promotion History and Current Industry History of brand promotion: o Rise of capitalism  Competition, only the best will survive o Industrial Revolution o Branding  How do we stand out? o Mass media How marketers promote depends on the world at that time o Economy and income o Political events o Technology innovations o Previous ad trends o Audience prominence o Cultural trends and values  What’s important to this group of people?  Ex: “dead dog ad” is not appropriate among a wide range of cultures Promotional industry trends o Narrower media control o Media clutter o Consumer control o Web 2.0  Ex: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
