Difficulty selling products is something more common that what you care to think of.
There will be times when your brand fails and people turn their back on you. However, as normal as this situation might be, left unattended, distribution and sale problems can end in a bankruptcy. Overcoming this matter requires a deeper insight into whatever causing it in the first place. And the products you try to sell could provide some information. Your brand includes the products. Figure out what’s wrong with them and you may get a pretty clear picture of the problem.
The product that your startup sells could be outdated. This is a result of your inability to keep up with the changing trend. Now, this is not to say that you must bend to what market dictates completely as this would render your brand identity-less. Don’t try to stop the flow of the trend. Rather, embrace the trend and implement new things on your products to keep them updated. Be aware of how your competitors develop their products. Beware of new businesses that are popping up every now and then. Companies larger yours are a threat but it is these small business entities that will be dangerous. They are backed by the freshest of minds, eager to make a name in the world of business.
These little entrepreneurs come with force challenging status quo with all the values they add to their products. They are no longer concerned about selling items. They provide experiences, things so fresh they make people want to stay. If this becomes apparent to you, change your marketing strategy: Adapt and adopt. Adapt to the ongoing changes and adopt the changes as part of your own experience as a marketer. Ditch all the boring aspects of your products and revamp it all.
