Discover how future shopping trends may impact your business.
Over the past couple decades, he's seen dramatic changes in what retail businesses must do to stay relevant, especially as Amazon has claimed more of the market share for various products and services. This trend has impacted retailers' physical locations, shopping malls and business models. Retailers must either adapt to these changes or risk becoming obsolete.
The retail industry isn't as simple as it once was, as Binnie demonstrates in the early part of his new book, "The Future of Omni-Channel Retail: Predictions in the Age of Amazon," released on May 22, 2018 (ISBN: 978-1-945847-
Binnie examines the classic marketing frameworks in use for years, and proposes a new framework that blends together both product type and consumer shopping behavior. His framework consists of a two-axis model that allows users to accurately predict the type of shopping experience consumers will expect moving forward.
The retail industry is experiencing a state of rapid transition and many people in the consumer and retail spaces are trying to understand how this new future will impact their businesses. Binnie's book and his two-axis model provide them with the necessary tools to do so.
The two-axis model allows business strategists and executives, sales and marketing professionals, entrepreneurs and real estate developers to create suitable business development strategies for their unique products and services.
Binnie is the founder and CEO of MSource Ideas, a business development company that's been solving hard, B2B marketing problems in the consumer products and foodservice space since 2008.
When asked what motivated him to write the book, Binnie stated, "Having read numerous books, articles and blogs about e-commerce, its impact on legacy retail and the possible futures that could emerge, I was frustrated. I couldn't find the lucidity I was hoping for about how far e-commerce would likely encroach on brick-and-mortar retail. Or any clarity about the possible shapes and contours this $5-trillion industry could take in the future."
