In this paper, we consider properties of interactive marketing and how network methods might be useful diagnostic tools of such interactive systems. Four content properties of interactive marketing are defined: technology, intrinsic motivation, the use of the resultant interactive marketing information, and the real-time aspect of the interaction. Four structural properties are also defined: customization, responsiveness, interactions among relevant groups, and a structure of networked networks — the meganet. Network methods are then integrated with the concerns of the interactive marketing manager. Network analysis at the individual node, subgroup, and network levels is considered a diagnostic tool for structural properties.
