In the rapidly changing digital marketplace, firms increasingly try to look for new ways to acquire, engage, and retain their consumers. In doing so, they hope to enhance their ability to monitor and predict consumer expression and affiliation while relying on consumers to spread the word about a product. The current state of the industry and enabling technologies that shape development is transitioning from an inexpensive medium for advertising, marketing, and customer support, to a common platform for transactions and business applications for information, communication, commerce, and entertainment as one large consolidated industry. More consumers are accessing the internet using multiple devices and over multiple communications networks, along with changing behavior and consumer patterns. With the evolution of digital media, Web technologies and consumer patterns changing rapidly, we see strategizing in the digital world of new media as essential. It needs to be addressed and understood holistically, including its impact on existing offline business models, branding practices, and the shape of future business models.
