I visit my Facebook page in the evenings after dinner. I enjoy reading about what my family and friends have done that day, and to even read a few funny jokes as well. I do not engage in any type of trash talking, or political posts. I’m not saying that I do not have an opinion, but I think there is a time and a place for certain conversations, and a tone cannot be detected in writing, and is usually perceived as negative by human nature. I am also a projector where I love to work on hot rods and or boats in my spare time. So, with that being said, I find myself on the EBay website looking for good deals on parts quite often. I usually do well in savings, so I get attracted to searching when I can. I also tend to watch YouTube videos if I get stumped on a specific project. With a little searching, you can find a worthy video that was posted by someone that knows what they are doing. I also check out Instagram, but not as much as the other three sites.
My reactions are usually positive when I visit these sites. I tend to ignore some of the foolish posts that people “air their laundry” with. I just shake my head and move on. I am usually satisfied with what I find, especially if it is a part that I was looking for, or a good “how to” video.
I receive a ton of emails from all kinds of senders. I get them from any company that I may have ordered from, my retirement account, Facebook with birthday reminders, work at home advertisements, you name it. I actually delete them all. I very rarely see anything that catches my eye. I would prefer to not receive any emails at all.
Digital media has brought marketing to a whole new level. The constantly changing ads on web pages, email blasts, social media ads, have all brought marketing to everyone’s fingertips. I have been known to log onto my computer, and end up looking at something that I my wife would like for Christmas, only because a flashy ad popped up on the website main page. I think that the marketing of any product on digital media has streamlined how companies can get more product to a larger audience by using selling engines like EBay that can market their product to even outside their country. The customer base for these companies is grown exponentially by the use of digital media.
