Sample Business Pro Trends - Each Business PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online business articles, videos and images. Examples:

Interactive Retail Stores focus on customer engagement as primary business strategy Implications - When product differentiation is non-existent and advertising goes unnoticed, consumer engagement becomes key in business success. Many retailers are turning to interactive shopping experiences to solidify relationships. Since purchases are often the result of emotions, maximizing a customer's hands-on experience within a retail environment -- whether in a physical store or online -- may increase positive feelings and brand loyalty.

Social Shopping Shopaholics are using social media for networking and retail therapy Implications - To many consumers, shopping can be as much about buying as it is about socializing. Attempting to capitalize on the fact that many online shoppers like to review, network and interact as they shop, online storefronts are adding networking platforms to their virtual operations, while marketers are scrambling to apply social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to their selling tactics.

Democratic Selling Online retailers rely on customer votes to push production Implications - Vote-based selling is gaining momentum in the world of online retail as businesses proactively employ the opinions of their customers. While democratic selling relies on crowdsourcing, it goes one step further by collecting customer votes and basing production entirely on those votes. So, the voice of the customer really is the voice of the customer.

Augmented Reality Shopping Virtual interactivity is changing the traditional purchasing experience Implications - The way we shop is undergoing a radical change, as retailers incorporate augmented reality by infusing traditional services with a virtual twist. The augmented reality shopping experience creates an increased ability to test out products and locate places to buy specific items, which may cause a shift in buyer behavior as the physical aspect of shopping becomes increasingly unnecessary.

Prefab 2.0 Homeowners opt for modular houses for a budget-friendly real estate alternative Implications - The rise of the caravan gave homes to a generation of nomads, and now their children are young adults. Instead of buying overpriced homes in a down market, consumers are mortgaging land and empty lots to buy modular homes--a 21st-century alternative to the "own your house, rent your land" ideal.

Smart Selling Marketers use technology to tap into customer preferences Implications - The root of successful selling may lie in a brand’s ability to incorporate technology. Targeted selling has reached a new level: gadgets can track customer satisfaction and analyze preferences, thereby making it easier for marketers to understand their customers. On the consumer end, innovations that incorporate social networking, enhance user experience and elevate convenience provide new ways to lure buyers.
