The traditional channels of print, broadcasting and face-to face sales were all greatly affected by the advent and subsequent rapid growth of the Internet media channel. Through the vehicle of multichannel marketing strategies, and the application of consumer behavior research, innovative and new technologies, traditional channels can successfully leverage their familiar and unique community position with the proven efficient and effective Internet channel.
