What does your business look like in terms of technology and marketing technology?

 Steve Mills - Part time Marketing director

Like it, or loath it, marketing technology is here to stay

And the extent to which you embrace, use and benefit from it may well be a direct reflection of how successful you and your business are now and in the future.

The fact is that technology is going to become more important in the future and will enable us as businesses and people to be:

  • Faster
  • More informed
  • Better at doing things
  • More informed
  • Etc

It is no longer acceptable to say “I don’t like technology”, or “I don’t understand it”.  You MUST embrace it and become outstandingly good at using it.

Questions for you to consider

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being outstanding, how good are you and your business at using the following marketing technology:

  1. CRM systems
  2. Project management software
  3. Diary management
  4. email marketing software
  5. Financial management software
  6. Website management software like WordPress

Because if you are not really great, then this is no doubt costing you money and in my opinion, it is something that is missing in 90% of the people in businesses that I speak to.

The US elections have highlighted that we live in a crazy world right now

Here are some of the real issues we’re facing right now:

1. The UK and the USA have ageing populations. The baby boom was from 1946-1964, so in 2016 a great wave of people started turning 70. Every day for the next 10 years will be a new world record for the most people turning 70. When populations age, productivity slows, incomes goes flat and governments don’t collect much in taxes.

2. Millennials aren’t settling down. People aged 20-35 are in a bind thanks to debt, low wages and expensive houses. They don’t get married, they don’t buy homes and they don’t have kids until much later in life. They’re also not interested in buying the big houses that the baby boomers want to sell at 15-20x the average wage.

3. Technology is replacing jobs. The USA is manufacturing twice as much as it did in the 80’s with less than a third of the people in manufacturing – automation is taking jobs, not China. The teen at the Tesco check-out is gone, so is the manager who checks the inventory, so is the store accountant who reports the daily takings. To put it in comparison, Vodafone has over 100,000 employees and WhatsApp has less than 250. New technology doesn’t create jobs, it obliterates them.  Driving jobs will soon be gone due to driverless cars, vans, lories and busses.  The accountancy industry will shrink by over 80% due to technology and so will many other industries.  Schools are teaching our children to give them the skills they need for jobs that don’t even exist yet!  

4. Governments have no clue how to tax global companies or the rich. In 2020 66% of the world will be online and the labour market will be truly globalised. In a globalised world, a geographically defined government can’t keep up with the movement of cash bouncing around the world at the speed of light. This leaves it with very few options but to expand its borrowing to pay for the things we demand. In particular the baby boomers want healthcare at a time when governments are losing tax payers.

These four big issues are either your friend or your enemy. You either see the benefits of technology and demographics or you see them as a threat.

Your entrepreneurial mind can turn adversity into opportunity. It can see solutions where others see problems, and you can create a business that surfs the waves others are dumped by.
