Collateral damage in the Internet era

05/28/2011

A lot of folks have been and continue to be impacted by the rise of the Internet era.

It only takes a quick glance at the Wall Street Journal, your local paper’s business section or whatever source of business information you prefer to see it. Individual businesses, even entire industries are being decimated by this shift.

  • Magazine publishers
  • Newspaper publishers
  • Book publishers
  • Booksellers
  • Map makers
  • Software vendors
  • Advertising companies
  • Service firms
  • Distributors
  • Freight companies
  • Etc.
  • Etc.
  • The list goes on and on.

We are just at the start of the Internet Revolution so you can be sure that the list will grow in the coming years.

None of us are safe. No business or industry will be left unchanged from the pain caused by this shift.

If you aren’t feeling the pain yet, I admit that I’m slightly jealous.

I suppose it’s possible that you are in a rare industry that won’t be impacted by the Internet. Regardless, I hope you will benefit from staying tuned to the blog and learning new strategies to ensure that you stay a step ahead.

If, like the rest of us, you are starting to feel the pain, it’s not too late to change. As you continue reading this blog, I will do my best to share strategies and tactics to help you begin your transformation to an Internet era organization.

Thanks for reading – see you soon!
