RSS feeds and blogs took Internet marketing by a storm in 2005. Every time we turn around there's a brand new marketing vehicle speeding down the Internet highway. In the fast paced race of the virtual world, it's easy to get swept away in the current of technology.
If we're honest with ourselves, we'll admit that computers have taken control of both our personal world and the business world. That's a scary thought! It's nearly impossible to even make a phone call without talking to a computer, much less try to find success in the professional service marketplace without spending more time with your computer than you do your family.
Honestly, it wouldn't be so bad if I could get my computer to do what I wanted it to all of the time. Unfortunately, there are a lot of days when I'm ready to pull my hair out in frustration because it refuses to obey my commands (usually screamed or hissed through gritted teeth). It's then that I realize just how little control I really do have in this technological world.
Think about it.... when a computer refuses to do what you want it to, what are your alternatives? You can glare all day, threaten to fire it, or get mad and use a few expletives. It just sits there, frozen, with the same error message on the screen - unintimidated and unchanging. (That's when you learn to appreciate staff members who are at least upset when you get ticked off because they don't do what you want them to.)
Don't take me wrong. Computers are really the most amazing invention to ever be introduced to humans. Take a look at Federal Express. Every day millions and millions of packages pass through the professional service company's computer system. You can track your package with a few clicks of the mouse and know exactly where it's at and when it will arrive at your doorstep. A perfect example of a professional service company that is in control of its computer system!
Computers may rule the world, but they don't have to rule you and me as individuals. We're free to use them when they meet the needs of our marketing goals. We're free to boot them when they become troublesome.... just don't forget to make a backup!
I agree with Marta's sentiments on the need to exercise control when dealing with technology. Particularly technology that helps us market our businesses. It's very easy to have things falling apart, but what's even more important is doing things in moderation. If you do that, you'll be able to live peaceful in this technology drive society that we've created ourselves.
I understand where you're coming from. However, we should think about technology as something that ultimately helps us to get stuff done more easily and thus, effectively making our business life better.
Indeed blogs and RSS have taken the field of Digital marketing by a storm. But it needs to be used in a controlled fashion and advertisements are not supposed to be delivered on to the face of people.
It creates a bad impression of the brand to the people. Instead, a more controlled approach would be better. The brands need to interact with their target audience in a more meaningful way. This can be done by making the customers go through the survey that helps the brand to understand its impression among the people.
Yeah, it has a lot of flaws. But it does make our life easier.
