Welcome to New River Marketing, a site that promotes thought-leadership in marketing, encourages knowledge-sharing and comment, and champions marketing thinking and creativity. New River Marketing seeks to promote knowledge of, and best practice in, marketing on both strategic and tactical levels. Its intention is to provide a service for brands, academics, practitioners, and students, and be a forum where visitors can engage with the administrator. Visitors are encouraged to follow @newriverm on Twitter, which feeds directly to this site.
Over time, useful content and links will build up to create a useful hub of marketing knowledge and expertise. The current content consists of the administrator’s Marketing blog, and a Download section where original academic content by the administrator has been posted. This currently consists of four documents originating from his time as a Masters student in 2009-11. The first is a dissertation entitled The Impact of Social Media on Marketing Strategy, and the second is a condensed version of this dissertation in the form of a Powerpoint Show. The third document is a paper which explores The Future of Search, and the fourth is entitled The History, Development and Practice of eCRM in today’s Business Environment.
Featured book: The Filter Bubble: What The Internet Is Hiding From You. Imagine a world where all the news you see is defined by your salary, where you live, and who your friends are. Imagine a world where you never discover new ideas. And where you can’t have secrets. Google and Facebook are already feeding you what they think you want to see. Advertisers are following your every click. Your computer monitor is becoming a one-way mirror, reflecting your interests and reinforcing your prejudices. The internet is no longer a free, independent space. It is commercially controlled and ever more personalised. The Filter Bubble reveals how this hidden web is starting to control our lives – and shows what we can do about it.
