Besides that, many commercials and advertisings were located in media multimedia. It attracted customers to much. We can see it every where in TV, newspapers, magazine, radio… [1] 

What is the Internet?

The original Internet was invented in July, 1969. In 1996, Internet was official established and became popular in the world. Internet is a global network of interconnected network. Most traditional communications media including telephone, music, film, and television are being reshaped or redefined by the Internet. Newspaper, book and other print publishing are having to adapt to Web sites and blogging. The Internet has enabled or accelerated new forms of human interactions through instant messaging, Internet forums, and social networking. Online shopping has boomed both for major retail outlets and small artisans and traders. Business-to-business and financial services on the Internet affect supply chains across entire industries.With the computer, DSL modern and phone line, we can receive databases from Internet Service Provider and access to the Internet. [2] 

Nowadays, Internet is the important part of our daily life. It changes our life and has many critical impact of traditional marketing.




Now there are hundreds of other traditional marketing methods that people still use to market their business everyday. But technique develops everyday, traditional marketing is no longer effective. It’s the time for Internet.

Internet provide good and convenient service for customers. People can watch video clip in, share photos, listen to music, read newspaper, chatting, video conference…

Using Internet in Marketing is the right way to get the more quality, the less price and widenly known. Besides shopping door to door, people can research and evaluate information in the Internet; marketer can advertise their product in the social network or websites instead of pay a high cost for TV and newspapers; company can approach their products to everybody in the world by Internet instead of open brands…

Beside the broke out of the Internet, many E-shop established and catch the large market, get more profit.

Amazon.com is one of the largest retailer website in the world. It sell many tools, books, entertainment things… Their products are cheaper than the shop, diversified products and advertised in nearly 36000 sites in the world help Amazon.com success in their marketing.

Besides Amazon.com, ebay.com, 123mua, bishop… are many successful e-shop, use the functions of Internet to improve their business.


Marketing segmentation is the consists of a group of customers who share a similar set of needs and wants. A basis for segmentation is a factor that varies among groups within a market. One can identify four primary bases on which to segment a consumer market. They are Geographic segmentation, Demographic segmentation, Psychographic segmentation, Behavioral segmentation

Because of many factors, people change their mind, their ages, their income… everyday. In the past, it was very hard to define the right segmentation.

Piagio is the popular brand in the world. Their segmentations are young persons who style and creative, standard income. They not often promote their new shoes in TV or magazine. Because it is expensive and cannot get the high effect. Their customers are easily change their favorable by the trends.

Nowadays, teenagers are using Facebook, love photography, fashion and design. Catch that trend, Piagio Vietnam celebrate the contest “Beeteam”. The winner must have the highest votes in Vespa Piagio Facebook. That contest attract a hundred thousand of contestant teams and celebrites in Vietnam. In the end of the contest.

Not take more money, just advertise in Facebook, Piagio got the high quality marketing. They catch their right segmentations and be popular, got the focus of customers. After that, many Photo contest of another brand follow that strategies and got the high results.

Targeting and Positioning:

Each channel can be shown in the define city, town or country. It cannot be showed in over the world without the contracts between government and media provider. Using TV as the marketing tools just can catch the limited market.

Each newspaper have a target audience. Such as teenager, adults, men, women… But as the habit, almost people do not like read commercial pages, they want to read hot news. Besides that, the development of e-newspaper in the Internet is better than pay money to buy newspaper because information in e-newspaper are updated every hours, faster and more believable.

So Internet help the company expand their target, open new area market and achieve their goal faster and easier.

They can improve their goals, not only Hochiminh city, Hanoi, Bienhoa… where Converse Vietnam have a brand. They can sell for many customers in Vietnam and reach their financial goal soon. [4]

The improvement, many services open. Truong Giang Super market open online shopping for busy people. They provide fress food, vegetables and many households. It is the right steps of Truong Giang Supper market, catch the hardly customers, make them closer and provide what they want.


A few years ago, advertising in TV and newspaper are the best choice for companies. Many people watching TV, and reading newspaper, so the cost for each commercial is so expensive.
