Within mass marketing we find all the traditional media: press, television, magazines, direct advertising, etc. And within the individualized marketing are the digital technologies, starting with the most powerful of them all: the Internet.
Which system is the best? That depends on the objectives to be achieved and the means available. But if you have already studied your potential market, why spend money on someone who won’t buy? Go directly to the potential customer, show your products to those who are really interested in buying them. The Internet allows your potential customers to show you their preferences directly.
How does Internet Marketing work? You see, if the medium of transmission were water, then television broadcasting would be like using a big hose to spray a whole crowd of potential customers in the hope that some of them would enjoy feeling wet.
Broadcasting specialized programs would be like using a smaller hose to target only those people who have already expressed an interest in getting wet.
Internet marketing, on the other hand, would be like creating a pool of water in cyberspace, telling people that you have such a pool, and inviting them to take a swim. Potential customers can visit the pool at any time, stay in it as long as they like, and dive as deep as they like. How much they want to dive in your pool is entirely up to their personal interest. Some people will come just to look around, some will take a light dip, some will swim for a while, and some may stay under for several days.
As a good human salesperson, the Internet will allow you to achieve results by knowing the customer’s preferences, providing the right services, maintaining loyalty, and ultimately obtaining future sales.

TRADITIONAL ADVERTISING REIGNS SUPREME IN MEDIA PLANNING
Despite the fact that our respondents previously rated online advertising as important, it seems that traditional advertising wins hands down when it comes to budget allocation: 68.9% of respondents would allocate 100% of their budget to offline advertising and 0% to online, while only 5.3% would allocate 100% to online and 0% to offline. Perhaps the lack of development plays a role?

BANNER STILL KING
According to 34.4% of respondents, the banner is still the most attractive advertising element to click on, followed by e-mail advertising (advertising in newsletters, …) with 19.7%. The fact that this type of advertising is in second place could be due to its high segmentation capacity, i.e. advertising that is adapted to the profile of the recipient of the message. Everything points to this being a tool with great potential.
