Secrets for developing a framework for effectively using the internet as a marketing channel
The market environment is changing rapidly. Prior to scanner data, ACNielsen, the major supplier of information on brand performances, said its business was to provide the score but not to explain or predict it. Now, model-based insights are not only demanded by managers, but can also be meaningfully provided. It is common for managers in many countries to receive market feedback frequently, quickly and in great detail due to the use of scanners and computers. With advances in information technology and expertise in modeling, IRI introduced model-based services in the US that explain and predict essential parts of the marketplace. ACNielsen followed, and marketing researchers have been developing increasingly valid, useful and relevant models of marketplace behavior ever since. Models that provide information about the sensitivity of market behavior to marketing activities such as advertising, pricing, promotions and distribution are now routinely used by managers for the identification of changes in marketing programs that can improve brand performances.
A Twenty-First Century Guide to Aldersonian Marketing Thought introduces readers to the life, the writings and the intellectual legacy of Wroe Alderson, the preeminent marketing thinker of the mid-twentieth century. Both Alderson's seminal contributions to marketing theory and his "best practices" articles in the areas of marketing management and ethics have been reproduced. Contributions by others about Wroe Alderson include a biography and a number of previously published articles that build on Alderson's theoretical contributions. Six original articles further explore Wroe Alderson's life, his work, his character and his intellectual impact. This book also contains two bibliographies: one of material written by Alderson over a forty year period and the other of publications that discuss his work. This single volume provides readers with an "in depth" understanding of the nature, the scope, and the magnitude of Alderson's highly original and lasting contributions to marketing theory and thought.
