In various industries, certain factors influence trends. Let us look at a few industries and the impacts that can influence business trends.
Many well-known establishments are losing out because of online shopping. The medium is easy and most often the prices are limited. Based on environmental factors, retailers are cutting back on their carbon footprint offering revamped products for a competitive price with upgraded warranties.
The hotel and other service related enterprises that rely on food and beverage to keep the business afloat are also influenced by trends. Issues such as demand, cultural awareness, supply chain, media and a host of other issues constitute the basis why the industry is impacted. In a positive vein, people do not blink when placing orders. On a negative vein, with the prices of raw materials hitting the roof, not many can afford the niceties.
For a while, people have been fed with the information where under-age workers produced finished items of clothing. That is one reason why people shift their allegiance to a brand because of negative publicity. Many of the well-known brands do not resort to this, but because of the image projected in the public eye, they lose face, have to shut shop and dig themselves out of the pit.
The investment in real estate is not as easy as one would have thought, with new changes being implemented; people do not want to invest in property if there are high tax rates. Sebastian Greenwood once quoted Brian Tracy who said, “I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often”. The point is that while the industry may have a couple of changes, the wait and watch policy may be beneficial down the line for the real estate industry, buyers, and sellers.
Social networking is a wonderful medium of engagement, but it can have a ripple effect when too much of the chatter brings down a brand. The objective is to capitalize on social media and let the truth be projected so that the negativity in the market is addressed resulting in amazing new trends for the brand. Basically, create a trend of your own and own the market. As Sebastian Greenwood said when he quoted Philip Sidney who once said, “Either I will find a way, or I will make one,” that is the best solution.
No matter what industry impacts are felt with reverberating consequences, it is essential to deal with the issue, move with the times and generate positivity.
