Seems that the GoT content owners don't necessarily agree with you. Taking a page from the Matt Mason book, The Pirate's Dilemma, seems like embracing piracy to some degree might just create buzz. It IS a problem, but reflecting on other forms of past media piracy is probably worthwhile: http://news.yahoo.com/hbo-admits-piracy-compliment-doesn-t-hurt-sales-035946132.html
- Consumers Wary Of Mobile Location Marketing
(Online Media Daily on
Direct mail may be seen as "trustworthy" because it is incapable of what technology brings mobile or web interactions. Sure, you can track responses once a customer commits, but there really isn't any comparison to the average impact/effectiveness of direct mail vs. a well put together digital effort. Not to mention, the fact that my 2 year old receives offers in the mail now that he has a frequent flier account is maddening. I can't tell you how many people I've heard complain about the volume of unsolicited mail that arrives at their homes, the majority of which gets tossed away. Not to be argumentative, but the reality is that smartphones are here to stay. Your comment about data plans is sort of moot considering a high volume of smartphone traffic is coming over private networks (wifi). I'd say that if you polled a generic sampling of consumers on which is more disruptive to them (direct mail vs. location-aware mobile ads), they'd throw that paper under the bus.
