10 Steps to Turn Around Mobile Electronics: Part 2
Two weeks ago I talked about a need to become realistic and introspective about who we are and what we are doing. This is something I have learned to do during the many years of therapy I have gone through while participating in the mobile electronics industry.
I was encouraged to see that the column I wrote two weeks ago was the most read of all I have written to date. I personally wish to thank both of you. As much as I would like to believe you were interested in what I had to say, I know that it is because this is something important to you and the industry. Everyone wants to see how we can give the kiss of life back to the very industry that has and is putting children through college and providing for our families. I say this as I just learned that 2009 was a year of retail sales decline and worst in that area since 1938.
In this series of articles I will present 10 strategies that I believe will help bring back to life the industry in which we have invested. Last week, I spent some time concentrating on the Internet and finding ways to use it as a tool instead of wasting energy trying to fight the beast. This is by no means any attempt on my part for you to go back and re-read any of my articles, but I do hope you are looking back later in the week to see what comments have been posted to the articles. If you have not seen the comments from Lee Zell and Mark Jones, I think you might find their comments interesting.
