Marketing with Social Media and Web 2.0

Marketing is changing and keeps changing. The Internet has a deep impact on marketing activities of companies and organizations, but also on customers. Present day customers intensively use social media, weblogs and twitter. 78% of customers pay more attention to recommendations by friends instead of believing commercial messages of companies. Traditional marketing alone is not enough for organizations to reach their marketing goals. Besides that, the rules of marketing have dramatically changed from interruption marketing to permission marketing, from telling to listening, from products and services to feelings and emotions. The IUNworld summer school marketing with social media and web 2.0 teaches you how to work with this "new" marketing.
