We Marketers have it really hard these days. We are all targeting the same group of people, with the same basic product offerings and sometimes even at the same time.
This is especially true for the world of Online Marketing. Some may find our efforts informative or even amusing. Others are downright annoyed and seek out every possible way to silence the noisy atmosphere we have created as we compete with each other.
To make matters worse, many of the promotions online are fictitious and have left our target market overly skeptical about everything they see online.
