blending advertising and social networking special research report Photo by
rounded up some interesting– and somewhat disturbing– numbers on how consumers interact with ads on social networking sites. Far and away, users viewed advertising in social networks as the most “annoying” of all online mediums. Besides just the annoyance, the likelihood of how often users would click on an ad is far lower in social networks than in more “traditional” online environments. So why is this?

The Five Failure Factors in Network Marketing | Lifehack News
although there are a few that pay daily, most network marketing companies pay residuals either monthly or weekly. The average new network marketer takes sixty days or longer to sponsor their first person. During those first sixty days, they have paid the costs to join, bought products or activated a service, purchased marketing materials, and possibly paid to be part of an advertising co-operative or purchased leads. They have also made their list of 100 or 200 warm market prospects and are tentatively blundering through those, experiencing a great deal of rejection. All this and they haven’t made a penny in the business.   market research, surveys and trends

Pepsi Forgets Super Bowl Advertising And Goes Super Social Media ...

Combined, print and television will lose almost $17 billion in US ad spending in 2008 and 2009. Newspapers  down (-29%) and Broadcast TV  also down (-23%)” says Forrester Research .

Censored: Indigenous Rattle News and Corporate Cages in Bolivia
The news from the Bolivia Climate Summit is too hot for most newspapers, including those in and around Indian country in the US and Canada By Brenda Norrell Photo by Michelle Cook, Navajo The bottom line of real climate change is that it is being censored and distorted in the news. I've been busy trying to give away articles on the Native American delegations to the Bolivia Climate Conference. As far as I can tell, none of the newspapers in and around Indian country published the articles. This is unusual. Normally newspapers are anxious to publish articles on local people involved in newsworthy events, especially when they ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Is the "Old Media" still the Best? | LinkedIn Answers | LinkedIn
I literally just wrote a post on the convergence of new and traditional media which might be of interest in this discussion: Fragmentation is a reality for the majority however traditional mass channels can still be the best way to reach mainstream audiences quickly hence ‘announcements’ still rely on these and as you experienced quite successfully. New media is no longer ‘niche’ and active consumer participation is progressively moving towards mainstream adoption. Consumer's voices are louder than ever and the decision you've got to make is whether you want to be part ...
Question: Cases studies on how Etsy grew its business
Etsy is an online company that allow independent artisans to sell their goods online. They fashion themselves as the "anti-eBay" and have grown very fast in the last couple of years, recently raising $27 million. The site allows people to set up stores where they can sell their goods online and promote themselves. I'm looking for some case studies or articles on how Etsy was able to grow their business so fast. Did they do a lot of advertising? Did they get a lot of word of mouth? How much impact did the fact that their artisans are marketing the site for them have? I'd love to see at least 2-3 ...
