Question by Jenna: As a consumer, what do you think about cause marketing? How do you feel about it?
I am doing some market research about consumers' attitudes towards cause marketing, which is when a business creates a marketing campaign that raises funds for social or charitable causes. Some popular campaigns now raise money for breast cancer research and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Best answer:

Answer by Julie
One example of cause-marketing would be the partnership of Yoplait's "Save Lids to Save Lives" campaign in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The company packages specific products with a pink lid that consumers turn in, and in turn Yoplait donates 10 cents for each lid.

What do you think are the most effective marketing strategies for a small business just starting out?

Question by molloy: What do you think are the most effective marketing strategies for a small business just starting out?

Best answer:

Answer by mary
There is actually no perfect formula for effective marketing strategy, regardless of the business size. However, I suggest that you need to be spontaneous about your marketing efforts. You should also learn the power of viral marketing--- this perhaps, is the most effective and fastest way to market your business. In doing this, you could start marketing your business to your relatives and friends, and ask them a favor to recommend your business to their friends and colleagues. You should also be able to supply your marketing efforts with printed materials like business cards, leaflets, posters, etc. Also, having a website helps too. Try making a simple one and submit your url to search engines and directories. Goodluck!

Do you think internet advertising is getting out of hand?

Internet Advertising information I can share:

Question by jetfrogz: Do you think internet advertising is getting out of hand?
I know most sites use this to make money to keep their sites up and running, and to also allow free content. However I can't help but notice an increase in the number of ads you see on a site, and how they are in unnecessary spots. For example, when you goto to some sites to watch videos, a 15-30 second ad plays before. Now I'm not saying I'm impatient or anything but when you want to watch a video, you want to see the video and only the video. Plus when you watch numerous ones, do you really want to see the same four ads over and over? It may not be a big deal now, but in the future this may get out of hand. Do you think these types of ads even work? I'd like to hear from both sides of the agruement as to good reasons or bad reasons to internet advertising. Thanks in advance!
