Answer 4 :

"Customer-centric" means creating a Web site that is centered around customer wants and needs. Savvy businesses are realizing that focusing their site on customer benefits and ensuring its visitors a unique experience are key drivers of sales, loyalty, and much-desired word-of-mouth advertising. By proactively considering the needs, wants, and beneficial preferences of your customers, you can make more effective decisions about the content, offerings, design, and processes available on your site.

A customer centric site is so difficult to accomplish for lots of reasons. Before a company can develop a customer centric site they must first get to know their customer very well, this presents it's own set of challenges. Once the company has a sound understanding of their customer they then have to design a process that works well, large companies may have the huge amounts of capital to fund the research into this but many have not. Another thing that makes this difficult is the rapid evolution of the digital world on a whole. As things change so too do the customers expectations. What might have worked a year ago will not necessarily work next year.

Answer 5 :-

One of the most obvious differences between traditional media and web advertising is the size of their respective audiences. There are both good and bad aspects to audience size. Traditional media such as broadcast and radio have the ability to have millions in their audience. They are truly the definition of mass advertising vehicles. Web media, on the other hand, is anchored by millions of individual websites, each with a comparatively small audience. Marketers must make a media buy across web networks in order to aggregate a larger audience for their message.

Age using their website is younger than the age, so for those who want to sell FishingRod is recommended over the mass media, because most of those interested in fishingare those who are younger than their age.
