Consider the Consumer

Welcome to my blog.

I have been a fan of blogging for some time and read a few of them every day.  But up until now, I had refrained from starting my own blog.  What did I have to say that was unique?  What could I offer that others have not offered before?

Once I was able to answer those questions, I felt it was time to add my voice to the chorus.

So here it is:

1. Information overload is just getting worse.  I read a ton of articles in the areas of marketing, social media and customer service.  I thought I could shorten the work for my friends and followers by helping to raise those topics and give the best highlights of what I read.

2. I felt that in everything I am reading, so much of the focus is from the marketer’s or business person’s perspective.  My focus, as best I can, will be to remind us to look at what we are doing from the consumer’s perspective.  How are we helping (or not helping) the consumer?  What benefit is being offered?  What could be done better?

I think stories are best told and lessons best learned through examples.  So I will be searching for examples of companies doing things right and wrong.  This isn’t a place for us to bash companies or vent frustration as much as it is a place to learn from mistakes.  I will draw upon the examples I find, my own experiences and hopefully the experiences of my readers.

I will ask that we are respectful of each others’ opinions, to the companies and people we discuss, and to the truth.
