Any local ads that are too near the house?
Any local ads that are too near the house? I think we like vouchers and offers. However, do online marketing companies cross the border? According to a recent Pew survey, while US-based shoppers like local results, everyday offers and vouchers from their territory, nearly 75% of them believe that following up on their queries and providing relevant ads is a breach of personal space.
What does this mean for local companies and focused merchandising? Let's take a close look at how retailer ads align online and off-line and where the line between comfort and caution lies. At the beginning of the year, Target's focused ad practices followed buyers based on their past shopping, credentials and other personalised information.
Naturally, you can unsubscribe to receive advertisements related to your purchasing patterns, but not to be followed by businesses. Example of a target display for a woman in a place in the sun opposite a man in a place in the rain. Of course, businesses want you to really want to know how they really felt about you, but at what price for your personal space?
In the ideal case, retailers and online outlets would be much more open and open about what they are collecting - and why - while at the same time giving customers the opportunity to fully choose not to do so. Naturally, this accidentally results in businesses complaining that most if they had the option, most would actually quit.
However, I'd like to point out to them that once there's a fire storm about a company's particular data protection flaws (*ahem*Facebook), there'll be a huge increase so they can make changes and brush up their images in the heads of buyers and consumers. To ignore your clients and hope that you can take their buying decisions without resort is a prescription for catastrophe.
I am sure that the participating businesses would achieve a much better ROI, and clients would not think that every ad was an invasion of their private sphere.
