In coding theory error detection and correction or error control are techniques that enable reliable delivery of digital data over unreliable communication channels. Many communication channels are subject to Channel Noise, and thus errors may be introduced during transmission from the source to a receiver. Error detection techniques allow detecting such errors, while error correction enables reconstruction of the original data. Source: http://www.wikipedia.org/
Ok so what is the error?
Answer: Consumers Fragmented Pursuits.
So what is a commerce pursuit?
Answer: Random searching, review reading, discussions and the various acts associated with the certain acquisition of a product or service.
So what is the proposed error control?
Answer: A process by which random, fragmented (commerce) pursuits are harnessed and redirected to establish reliable organization.
What is the error correction?
Answer: Detect the “noise” (fragmented pursuits), organize and re-energize for the production of a successful result.
Why are we addressing this concern?
Because the internet currently may provide more net profit to advertising (and all related) as a whole than product selling. This could cause conversions (in all actuality) to be unattractive. For when a consumer converts, the quest is over and advertising (and related revenue) cease in relationship too.
Clarification: To all that are involved in the advertising and marketing chain (excluding conditional affiliates), it is more profitable when the consumer does not convert for an extended period of time.
So the argument from here can commence, who in the process deserves more of the profit? The product provider who acquires and provides the item or the advertiser who through various channels produces the consumer?
