This "viral" marketing strategy spreads the message widely, but could also distort the creator's original intent, said Tim Richardson, a professor of e-commerce and Internet marketing ...Still, "any kind of controversy that helps to get the message out can be helpful ... You have to be more extreme," he added. "It's kind of a sad comment on our society."

The point being that 1% of 300,000 spam emails ends up with 3,000 customers, or in the case of a phishing campaign, 3,000 victims.

.
Tim explained that companies recognize that mass marketing to new customers is not as effective as focusing on building a business by selling more to existing customers. Compaines then focus more on gathering detailed profile information on existing customers in order to up-sell and cross-sell products, and by collecting such information (birthdates, credit card numbers, home addresses etc.), put customers in a position of vulnerability when such databases become compromised. CKNW is part of the CORUS radio network.

Bill C6, the PIPEDA Act was federal legislation that required companies to keep customer profile information confidential and free from risk. 
mv
The problem is that there is no legislation giving Bill C6 teeth - there are no consequences for companies who have situations were customer data is stolen or put at risk. Richardson explained that organizations like CIPPIC have argued for a Canadian law requiring that companies notify individuals when their personal profile data has been compromised as a result of some risk or threat situation that developed. Tim explained that presently there is no pressure for companies to let customers know they are/were at risk, other than pressure that comes about as a result of media exposure if a story breaks.

During the 4th week of December the Hamilton Spectator's Dana Brown interviewed Tim Richardson about "viral marketing" and how social networks on the Internet have created a vehicle to spread the word like never before.
.
The story was in the context of "Some online ads made by consumers to promote a brand they love. Others are less deliberate, such as the high-tech holiday lists on Youtube. Either way, the clips do what companies want most -- create a buzz around their products. And they're doing it for free."

During the 2nd week of December 2006,  Richardson was interviewed by journalist Cassandra Szklarski of the Canadian Press office in Toronto for a story on CP's "The Cyber File".

.vv
The Globe quoted Richardson - "More and more retailers are relying on computer databases to track returns so they can know if someone has been hitting a chain repeatedly for questionable refunds at different outlets, says e-commerce expert Tim Richardson." "Richardson says new technology known as RFID is helping more stores keep track of their products. These tiny tags store information the same way a barcode does but can be hidden inside clothing, toys or games, he says. They're most often used for high-end electronics. A stolen good brought into the store by someone with hopes of getting a “refund” would be readily identified, says Richardson, and the tags make inventory counts a breeze."

http://www.itworldcanada.com/ During the 4th week of November 2006,  Richardson was interviewed by itWorldCanada.com's Nestor Arellano for a story about online shoppers clicking through the "shopping cart" on websites, then abandoning the checkout without buying. Tim explained that sometimes this is not a bad thing -
- in fact many times online shoppers are simply looking at the detailed description of the product as described in the shopping cart, and then they go into the store and buy the product. Tim added that sometimes it is more desirable to encourage the shopper to go in to the store because then you can hit them with in-store promotions and cross-sell them or up-sell them on other products they see in-person.

.
. Richardson explained that part of the current boom respects the fact that more women are buying online so marketers are trying to reach that demographic with new offers. Secondly, there are a variety of payment systems available compared to the limitations of credit cards and PayPal in the earlier years of Y2K, so there are more ways to buy things online. Richardson also explained that companies are developing viral marketing campaigns to counter the decline in the effectiveness of traditional mass advertising. The story will run in the December magazine of FP.

As marketing people become aware of the power of personal web logs (blogs) for facilitating the propagation of publicity about a product or service, concurrently, stealth marketers are exploiting the popularity of blogs to produce fake blogs, or rather blogs that are full of content which is spam, instead of genuine individual opinion. Splogs can also be used to drive traffic to a site to falsely create hits on a page and drive up a site's search engine ranking in a highly competitive sector of the web.

.
Richardson explained that risk and threat situations effecting int'l business travel are not just human based but also a consequence of climatic conditions - which effect corporate communications, topographical challenges - which stress land travel to remote areas, and (as recently portrayed in the southern U.S. and coastal South Asia) weather extremes. 
...
During the 3rd week of September, Richardson was interviewed by journalist Aparita Bhandari for Report on Business of The Globe ? Mail for a story about Online Communities and the consequences for marketing and business models. He explained that communication technology developments have made it possible for people to create and sustain personal and business relationships that cross far distances.
nnn
While this absence of a geographical requirement has freed people to engage in more relationships unbound by distance, it has also fostered a reduction in the former close relationship held between vendor and customer. Efforts to recover this close relationship is what drives a lot of the online communities developed by consumer product vendors. However this energy for creating communities is not a new thing completely—companies have been "community"-focused long before the Internet ; what the Internet does, however, is greatly enhance the frequency of communication and through the use of enriched images, audio and video, further encourages community members to interact with a frequency and duration unmatched in previous generations. The interview was with journalist Aparita Bhandari for Report on Business.

Secondly, Richardson explained that reason for the rapid increase in the number of porn sites is due to various special techniques being employed by the site creators so they can have their content rank higher in Search Engines. Richardson added that it is a myth that much of the web content is porn and explained that the majority of porn sites do not do well as a consequence  of the intense competitive environment, and problems with payment systems." for the full quote, click here
