How has technology affected marketing?
Technology has enabled marketers to better utilize market research, create customer databases, [ and incorporate other types of information to better reach their customers.This enables marketers to send customized messages and offerings to carefully selected target audiences. In the old days, marketers had little choice but to deliver a universal message to a mass audience in the hope that it
might reach a few customers. (This was called the "shotgun approach.") But today, marketers are able to reach very select audiences based on customer demographics and psychographic profiles. (This is also known as using a "sniper's rifle.") As a result, marketers are wasting less money promoting their products to the wrong customers. Have you ever used a frequent shopper card at your local grocery store? Every time you swipe your card or punch in your phone number, you are feeding information into a customer database that defines you by your purchasing habits. The store knows how often you shop each week, the most popular items in your grocery cart, the size of your average purchase, and more. So, the guy buying Cheese Whiz and Budweiser ends up fitting a completely different customer profile than the shopper who buys imported cheese and fine wine. The store can use this information to provide you messages they know will be of particular interest to you, or they can sell your customer profile information to other marketers. So, for example, if a producer of high end luxury food products wanted to reach high end customers who shop at Safeway, they could do exactly that. Also, going back just a bit further... another example of how technology has impacted the world of marketing is in the area of Cable Television. Cable television has created a very fragmented viewing audience. In the old days, there were basically three networks: ABC, CBS and NBC. Now there are hundreds, each of which caters to very select audiences. This also allows television advertisers to reach more highly targeted audiences. ]

With so much advertising noise in the marketplace, how can a company ensure its message is heard?
Weegy: Noise, is anything that gets in the way of a recipient receiving the entire message which (in marketing) a company is trying to convey. [ This can be anything from regional dialogue differences, to poor message execution, to the intended recipient's lack of understanding. A company can take several steps to eliminate as much "noise" in their advertising campaigns as possible, by making the message clear and concise to begin with, as well as various marketing strategies to ensure their goal is achieved. Another helpful way to eliminate "noise" is to hire focus groups to give input on their interpretation of the intended message. ] (More)

What strategy is used most often when advertising children's toys on children's television shows the push or pull strategy?
Weegy: A push promotional strategy works to create customer demand for your product or service through promotion: for example, through discounts to retailers and trade promotions. [ Appealing package design and maintaining a reputation for reliability, value or style are also used in push strategies. One example of a push strategy is mobile phone sales, where manufacturers offer discounts on phones to encourage buyers to chose their phone. Push promotional strategies also focus on selling directly to customers, for example, through point of sale displays and direct approaches to customers. A pull promotional strategy uses advertising to build up customer demand for a product or service. For example, advertising children's toys on children's television shows is a pull strategy. The children ask their parents for the toys, the parents ask the retailers and the retailers the order the toys from the manufacturer. Other pull strategies include sales promotions, offering discounts or two-for-one offers and building demand through social media sites such as YouTube ] (More)
