Simple Marketing + Smart Adjustment of a proven (and growing) industry/product + ... the right time = PAYDAY.

MARKETING STRATEGY GONE RIGHT.
The headline, "Confirmed: Walmart buys Jet.com for $3B in cash to fight Amazon" on Tech Crunch this morning should strengthen the resolve and sharpen the focus for every growing tech company. An online mall wasn't a new idea - but these three guys; added to their  virtual shopping cart  option to select additional items (using pricing incentives).  Wow, novel idea... anyone who's purchased a pack of gum at the grocery store has seen the benefit of point of sale suggestions. It's also not rocket science to understand that you can save on shipping if combine purchases. 

The factor that really gave this deal a steroid injection was Amazon.com (and the fact that Wal-Mart is not good at being second. These all fit together to form a $3 billion dollar deal.

This company launched (publicly ) a year and 18 days ago. 

... THIS COMPANY LAUNCHED A YEAR AND 18 DAYS AGO!

Jet.com was purchased for $7.8 million dollars a day (since public launch)


This commercial was released September 8th with a shortcut: "Shop Jet today: http://bit.ly/ShopJet"

First, congratulations to Marc LoreNate Faust , and  Mike Hanrahan  for the amazing start up story. I hope that none of my clients hear of this and think that this is based on marketing alone. 

Second, congratulations to Wal-Mart... you've always been the cost cutting specialist - good luck (Beso's good).

        Anyone can make one:
        For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

        The writer can show their personality:
        In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

        Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
        You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience—the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

        You can make money:

        Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

        It allows people to craft better thoughts:
        Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it’s much better to see people’s thought process in a well-written blog post.

        You can establish a community:
        Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

        Good for SEO:
        Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

        It brings people back to your site:

        If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

        It’s free:
        It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there’s nothing to stop you.

        You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

        A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!
