Retail Disruption Creates Consumer Consumption
February 20, 2013 From News

Accelerating consumer traffic while simultaneously changing your business model to create consumer value is the core focus of smart retailers. Retail leadership demands highly disruptive marketing plans that will regain efficiencies, drive in-store and online traffic, and generate profitable opportunities.

If you don’t have an “SVP of Retail Disruption” on staff that is focused on capturing creative opportunities and catalyzing needed change, I suggest you promote or hire one immediately. Retail leadership should invest to arrest the competition through disruptive business models. The net? The right retail disruption model married the right brand and product value model will deliver the recurring consumer traffic to ensure profitable engagements.
