The Marginal Customer


I start a lot of client engagements with a simple question: Who’s the customer? It’s amazing the answers that I get. Some people are really quite good. They know the customer’s demographic and business or personal needs, and they focus on those things. Others don’t even grasp the difference between a customer and a consumer. You might expect this if you are working in the business-to-consumer rather than business-to-business space. Working with businesses gives an automatic understanding that there are multiple influences.

Will PayPal Become the Next BlackBerry?


Recently I had a problem with a purchase, which led me to ask an important question: Will PayPal become the next BlackBerry or Nokia? PayPal must update, or it will lose to new competitors like Apple Pay, Google Wallet, CurrentC and Square, whose intention is to reinvent the e-commerce and mobile payment space. PayPal was a great service when the Internet was young and consumers had no other choice. It gave us a way to do business with lots of small companies anywhere in the U.S., or in fact the world.
