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. ]

what year did people like to ride motorcycles?
Weegy: 1960 - Learner laws introduced All new riders are limited to riding 250cc machines with L-plates 1971 - New learner age raised to 17 Anyone wishing to ride a 250cc with L-plates must be at least 17. [ 16 year olds can still ride mopeds (49cc). 1977 - Mopeds restricted to 30mph Largely due to bikes like Yamaha's FS1-E 50cc moped being able to do 60mph+ mopeds are restricted to 30mph, which is a serious come down for an entire generation. 1982 - New two part test (not for the first time) Learners wishing to get a full licence have to take a Part 1 test which involves a figure of eight in a box, a slow ride and a sort of junction and one or two other manoeuvres. This test was conducted by authorised instructors and began a process that started to tie in the Department for Transport (that was later to become the DSA) to the motorcycle training industry. Typically the Part 1 Test cost £50.00 which included half a day of training. The Part 1 test meant that motorcycle training could be run on a commercial basis. Previously most people did not do much if any training, and although groups like the RAC and Star Rider existed most training schools were run on a casual basis with volunteers. Part 2 remained pretty much unchanged with the test being conducted by the examiner watching from the side of the road. This was a pretty hit and miss affair with as much attention being given to what was worn as how the bike was ridden. 1982 - Introduction of 1 year ban Learners that did not get some form of full licence (car, motorcycle etc.) inside two years were faced with a one year ban from riding motorcycles with L-plates. They could still ride a moped in the ban period. This was very unpopular amongst riders and led to many people riding illegally. 1983 - Learner motorcycles are reduced to 125cc Another rush to get a licence gets underway (something we have become more and more familiar with over the past few years) as learners lose the right to ride their ...

Why when it comes to small shop business there are many locations that can still make a profit?
