During the past two decades, the portable electronics category has evolved to the point where it seems as though there’s a new product coming out every day. If you’re not paying close attention, you’ll be looked at like you’ve been living under a rock at the next cocktail party!
Headphones, iPods, ipod accessories, MP3 players, portable stereos, boom boxes, two-way radios, audio docks, wireless speakers and mini speakers are among the most popular electronic options consumers have today. Among the most popular brand names of mobile electronics are Apple, Audio Technica , Beats by Dr. Dre, Craig Bluetooth Stereo, dreamGEAR home appliances electronics, Everlast, GE, Hello Kitty, HTC, ILIVE, iSound, Jamsonic, Jlab, JVC, Koss, LenMar, Maxell, Naxa, Panasonic, Pyle, Quantum, RCA and Zenex.
The automotive industry has gotten up to speed quickly as almost every model they produce on the assembly line is equipped with audio jacks, USB cable and some with a two or three-pronged outlet. You could follow suit and say quite a number of industries have had to revamp or modify their business model ensuring a pleasant customer experience. Hotels now have multiple USB outlets in their rooms. Starbucks, McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Barnes and Noble, malls, salons and many more businesses have plug-ins to meet customer demands. Can you name others? It’s clearly an advantage to the business establishment if they upgrade to make their store more customer electronic friendly as it’s been proven a customer will stay at your business a longer period of time therefore purchase more product while they’re there. What has been your experience? Do you spend more money if you’re at a Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts for 2 hours rather than going to the drive thru?
This new electronic age isn’t for everyone. Whether you’re old school or not, how annoying is it when the person who is assisting you has ear buds in and doesn’t hear what you’re asking! In fact, I’ve encountered a few customer service people along the way who have one bud in and think it’s okay. Quite honestly, it’s rude and it shows you’re not giving your customer the undivided attention they deserve. All of us know about Amazon. This is one of the biggest online stores in the world. Another name in the category of online stores is Alibaba, owned by a Chinese, Jack Ma. Most of the time we see these two names in search results when we look for a consumer product on the internet. Gone are the days when we had to go out for shopping. Now almost all types of consumer products are available online, that too on a global level. People can have their required things while sitting at home or office.
The concept of online stores started from the West and now is a growing trend in Asian countries. Seeing their popularity, many brands, and businesses got online. All big corporate names have an online presence now. Social media has played a great role in it. Brands and individuals own online stores also. Individuals along with their teams or families are also inclined toward opening online stores with a wide range of products. It includes books and magazines, garments, furniture, cosmetics and handbags, herbal products and medicines, construction material, electronic, and jewelry, etc. The sole purpose of opening an online store is to expand the outreach and tap in the maximum number of potential customers. An online store can give us a huge fortune as a long-term business even if it started on a small or medium scale.
