Traditional marketing is all about showing ads to people in different ways and hope that they will buy your product after seeing it. It worked in every day because there was not much for people to see anyway. They went to a movie theater and saw an ad or read a newspaper and saw the same product’s advertisement. That was enough to make them believe that the product is something good. They could not do much research on it.
Things are not the same anymore
