In recent decades, information and communication technologies (ICTs), the internet, mobile
and social media marketing have radically and unforeseeably changed society as a whole,
especially since the Internet of Things emerged, making available multidimensional sets of
data which are known as big data. The digital revolution and the convergence of information
and communication technologies have ignited the development of new communication grids,
thus challenging the marketing strategies and business models of companies in any sector
with new opportunities and threats.
Currently, technology and the internet, as used through any device, provides companies with
new venues and platforms to be used for pricing, distribution, promotion and product policies.
Technologies and the internet can be used for customer acquisition and profiling, customer
engagement, brand reinforcement, reputation and image building, monitoring and complaint
management, the co-creation of new products/services with consumers, quality control,
analysis of competitive strategies and many others strategic purposes. Broadly, the
contemporary technological environment has transformed the relationships in any B2B
(business to business), B2C (business to consumer), C2C (consumer to consumer) or G2C
(government to citizen) context.
