Keep the pace of “new” new media marketing

on December 5, 2006 by Martina Comments

Advertising Age has been recently publishing a series of interesting articles about the evolution of new media communication. Especially for those of us who work on the client side, it’s important to understand how consumers use the Web (and other new devices), in order to plan in advance brand strategies to make them happy. The first article, by Abbey Klaassen, was published last week: Stop With the Engagement Already, It’s About Receptivity.

It’s amazing how many times we concentrate all our attention on the “beauty” of a website, on how it is funny or on its viral potentials etc… and we therefore miss the key points any online effort should bear in mind: which are the marketing and communication objectives of my online campaign? Who am I trying to reach? Viral marketing applications can also be effective where engaging consumers is concerned if they serve a purpose beyond just that. Take a moment to recall some of the most popular viral videos and interactive tools and you’ll realize their success wasn’t measured in their ability to engage alone.

I always read with great interest articles talking about interactivity and user engagement but, this time, I’ve been rather disappointed by Jeremy Lockhorn article on ClickZ The Rules of Engagement. No new ideas, no new tips, no new opinion, just a bunch of obvious stuffs. Sorry for this “extreme” judgement, but I’m used to expect high quality content from ClickZ and this way it’s easier to get disappointed, even though I understand it’s August, it’s hot, and the climate influences our performances
