Small Businesses = The Dead Zone
In his infamous book” Zero to One” multi-billionaire Peter Thiel (founder of PayPal) called dealing with small businesses the “Dead Zone” and went on to say that if you want to create a successful startup, you need to avoid them. Why? According to Thiel small businesses are too hard to reach, they have high demands, and they do not spend enough money. Basically, the Cost of Customer Acquisition (CAC) is too high compared to the Lifetime Value (LTV).
So what happens? The small business gets ignored, and competing with the big guys becomes even more difficult.
Why Shoptoit Caters to Small Businesses
Today’s consumer is rebelling against the tides of “the big get bigger,” and frankly they are sick of the Walmart / Amazon / Starbucks world. They overwhelmingly want to see small businesses survive, and they want a diverse, local experience.
Poll after poll shows this is how consumers feel, however, their desire for convenience drives their decision making – and so they often end up supporting the “big guys” because they cannot easily find the smaller, local businesses.
The consumer is looking, they are using Google to search from their phone, and they are often looking for an alternative to the brands they already know. It’s called local search, it’s growing by 50% per year, and it is the perfect opportunity for a small business to get new customers.
