Among all the other benefits of the Internet is how the Internet re-affirms principles we should already know.
For instance, one of my favorites is that people do more business with people who make it easy to do business with them. It’s not just that the Internet is there and is omni-present. It’s that the Internet is crowded with E-tailers who make it easier to do business with them than with most RE-tailers.
As adults, we realize how different our world is today from that of our parents. And theirs from their parents. And there’s nothing like generational differences to kill off brands that don’t stay relevant with each new generation.
A critical aspect of marketing is making sure that a brand stays relevant to each new generation.
