Traditional Marketing Trumps
A new national survey from Harris Interactive and the Public Relations Society
of America Foundation says that the general public still finds traditional marketing
methods (paid advertising, corporate sponsorships, etc.) more acceptable than
such new-age vehicles as paying private citizens to promote products, Internet
pop-up ads and text messages. The report, which surveyed a group that included
the general public, Fortune 1000 business executives and congressional staffers,
indicates that despite flashy new marketing methods, tried and true forms of
advertising, such as promotional products, remain the strongest influencer in
the minds of most consumers.
