In a recent tweet, President Trump stated that Amazon’s online business is, “causing great damage to taxpaying retailers”.
How does that affect your business/practice?
Is the President going to encourage legislation to curb this perception?
Will there be special incentives for traditional retailers?
Or is this just another bombastic tweet?
Honestly, who knows, but there is a quick takeaway.
The reality of Amazon, and other online retailers, is that the standalone business/practice cannot take their presence likely.
Ignoring the Amazonian impact on your business/practice is a recipe for closing your doors. As ProSight has mentioned before, every traditional retailer has to give their customers/patients a reason to visit them instead of visiting a website. If not, purchasing and receiving products and services online will just become intuitive.
We’ll have to wait to see if the President’s tweet will result in legislation. What we can’t wait on is preparing as if he won’t.
