  2. 2. Targeting – only goes so farWhat I surf or search for once may not be what I demand going forward “My husband searched for baby gifts for a friend on my computer/browser. Now Amazon thinks we just had a baby and keeps showing me „recommendations‟ and sending me email.” - Miss TargetedJune 5, 2012 2
  3. 3. Some targeting is goodSome targeting is better than no targeting; but the law of diminishing returnskicks in when more than a few parameters are used. M ? FJune 5, 2012 3
  4. 4. Branding – only goes so farPeople search for the products they want to buy, not the brand in most casesJune 5, 2012 4
  5. 5. “Brand” is earned reputationIn some cases, a brand is synonymous with the product people want to buy “In some rare cases, the brand name is more searched than the product itself. These products have earned their reputation over time, not by „branding‟ (or telling) people they are the best. They ARE the best and are consistently so.” - Augustine FouJune 5, 2012 5
  6. 6. Ads don’t create demand “We just bought a minivan; no “Our family drinks 4 quarts of matter how on-target the TV milk each week. No matter ads are, we‟re not gonna buy how much advertising the Milk another minivan.” Council does, we won‟t buy a 5th quart of milk this week.” “Just got email from United about fare sales. I love the airline and always fly it, but I‟m not just going to take a trip because there is a small discount on the airfare.”June 5, 2012 6
  7. 7. Ads make people aware … … then they choose which to buyJune 5, 2012 7
