Expert or Order Taker?
Who is the king of order takers? We would say Amazon. With this online giant, finding what you need is easy, orders are shipped right to your home or business, the selection seems endless. The process is simple, fast and can be completed from the comfort of your couch. Amazon is expert in giving you options and processing your choices. But that's it. Amazon doesn't know your business or your customer, doesn't analyze current trends or seasonal sales. Amazon isn't familiar with your local business climate or your target market. In 2017, the successful business will promote their expertise. Rather than focusing exclusively on product, these businesses will promote knowledge. Something Amazon can never match.
More and more, sales are driven by on-line content. You can now research a car, schedule a test drive and complete the purchase without leaving your kitchen table. Every business must have an online component and that component must provide real content to your customer. It's not enough to display your product. You must market your product on-line. Because more and more, that will be the only opportunity you have to connect with your customer.
Today's consumers are accustomed to marketing that is tailored to their needs. Promoting one message to all markets is becoming a thing of the past.
