Some answers The site looks alright ( http://flamingo-electronics.net/). HOWEVER - despite the fact that they claim to be a Limited Company, there is no organization number on the site (AFAICS) AND a brisk inquiry of the Companies House database utilizing their WebCHeck office ( http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/) does not discover an organization enlisted as Flamingo Electronics Limited, so I\'d be suspicious.

More The top picture on their data page does NOT seem as though it has any PCs in the shop! The organization logo is distinctive on the two shops. Interesting to simply have one branch in South London and one in Milan. On the off chance that you download the second picture and extend it, it would seem that the name has been Photoshopped. That logo looks commonplace as well: http://www.shop4antiques.com/g­raphics/fiery debris/FlamingoHilton.jpg If they are in UK and Italy, then why are their costs in dollars? Others called attention to that the street number is an "accomodation" address, and the fax number is additionally imparted to another person, and they have an extraordinary escrow installment administration (or take Western Union wire installments): all suspicious.

Customer demographics Understanding who purchases an item. Applies to both people and organizations as clients. Who; where; the amount of; why. Quite a bit of this is gaining from your own particular sales representatives, who should exchange their encounters as of now Called CRM (client connections administration).

Fewer go betweens today Once upon a period, makers sold to wholesalers who sold to retailers who sold to general society. So the first creators didn\'t know much about who purchased what; the retailers may, however wouldn\'t let them know. Regular postal mail was cherished by publicists since you got to take for the sake of your client. These days, the mix of lists, Internet mailings, and a few stores that have productively kept information on their clients is changing the promoting/offering field.

Slide 8

What is a name worth? Some time ago, this was purchasing mailing records (UK case)

Slide 10

Some different examples Association of Planning Schools: $100 for 120 division seat addresses, $250 for 1400 staff. 280,000 love birds, or 680,000 unseasoned parents: $95/thousand Auto prospects: $130/thousand I was told once that the most costly mailing rundown was the rundown of individuals who had purchased a subterranean insect ranch.

Slide 11

Nowadays, it\'s catchphrases Search motors, especially Google, are offering the advertisements that are fixing to the words you write. Suggestion makes open what the expense of a word is: Honda: $1.03 (Carmax) Rutabaga: 10 pennies (eBay) Cancer: $4 (Procrit)

Slide 12

The most costly word Pretty discouraging: it\'s mesothelioma ($49). Different biggies are Vioxx and asbestos (both $16). Glad is 20 pennies, discouraged is $3.36. (Coincidentally, you can obviously see who purchased every word; so you learn something about who is offering the important items.)

Slide 14

Web apparatuses focusing on clients Registration: name, email, postal district? Some (most) individuals leave when requested that register. Treats: track rehash visits. Watching inquiries, mouse snaps, and time spent on page. Commissions: rewards, or "offshoot charges" paid to the individuals who course you movement. Something like "split run" daily paper promotions: which pictures or words pick up the most snaps and the most requests.

Slide 15

Sample employments of treats Follow the information Once you\'ve created this log, sections are presented on it with each customer demand. You can track an awesome manage such a log. Here are a few conceivable outcomes: Keep track of all clients by recurrence of-visit, i.e., once every day, twice per week, and so forth. Track all clients by length-of-stay, i.e., the amount of time they spend on a Web website. Match late clients against a rundown of every past client. Track singular client action by snap action, i.e., pages and connections got to (valuable for Web website examination). Track singular client time spent on particular Web pages. Track aggregate client action by snaps for particular eras, i.e., which joins/catches/highlights got the most use in a given day, week, and so forth.

Slide 16

Cookie issues Should a client query output be changed relying upon earlier quests? Should a client see promotions taking into account earlier words looked? Should a client not see the same advertisement time and again ("flag burnout")? Shouldn\'t something be said about "cross-offering" in which organization An and organization B exchange treat get to so that in the event that you purchase a book from organization An, organization B offers to offer you a DVD on the same subject? What\'s client administration, and what\'s hostile showcasing?

Slide 17

Personalization The conventional advertiser needed to outline the item once, for all clients. (A few special cases: smash hit soft cover books in some cases come in various spread plans). Be that as it may, now, on the off chance that some individual supposes you purchase all the more frequently when the site has a red foundation, there\'s no issue demonstrating to you a red foundation each time you visit the site. Alternately, you can get unique costs, or additional elements. (Pretty much as I now and then think about whether any oriental mat has ever been sold at rundown value, I don\'t think there are any days in the year that some product sellers haven\'t extended a restricted time offer to me).

Slide 18

Rights administration run wild DRM 03 (Digital Rights Management) meeting, ACM (Washington, DC). This paper is on the other hand funny and startling.

Slide 19

What did the creators do? They agreed to the true blue music and video download administrations. Not Grokster or Kazaa; Pressplay, MusicNet, Rhapsody, MusicNow, MovieLink, and CinemaNow. They then really read all the EULAs (end client permit understandings) and security arrangements. Even better, they introduced a bundle lumberjack to see what was being transmitted from their machine to the administrations. At that point they talked about whether you may hope to happen, contrasted and what happens.

Slide 20

What did they discover? The administrations routinely read and transmit to their servers the documents that record your site visits (to all sites, not only theirs). They record careful points of interest on how frequently you get to each of their things, and how you tune in/perspective it (e.g. whether you quick forward or go down). Despite the fact that they deliberately encode the information they are duplicating without end about your searching propensities, one of them didn\'t try to scramble your name and secret key as it logs you in. They don\'t permit such "reasonable use" as catching a portion, or exchanging a duplicate to another machine you claim.

Slide 21

CinemaNow most repulsive (1) If you\'ve attempted to watch one of our free motion pictures you understood that we put forth a few inquiries.
