TAKEAWAY: Online has the potential for HUGE SCALE, even if your business is offline you must consider going online.

 

DIRK RODGERS – http://www.rxtrace.com/

By pushing out content after content, Dirk has become an authority on pharmaceutical serialization also called track and trace.

At a rough guess, there are almost 250+ blog posts on this site, with innumerable interactions with the pharma community.

Dirk is routinely sought out for speaking engagements, and has also “interpreted” the US Regulations on Serialization which he sells for $224 on his site.

With more than 500 pharma, biotech and distribution companies that deal in prescription drugs, and at a very low average cost of $10 per company for implementing systems and interfaces for managing this regulation, this is a huge market for Dirk to tap into.

TAKEAWAY: A combination of physical presence and LOT of content – current, relevant and insightful – you can create a compelling online presence.  It takes time, is a marathon, not a sprint, but you will get there eventually.  Persistence is key.

 

 

SERBIAN CROWN

40 year old restaurant had to close down because they chose to stick with their offline reputation.

Read all about it at: http://www.businessinsider.com/restaurant-blames-google-for-struggles-2014-7

The irony is that the restaurant had a very distinct COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE – they served exotic LION meat!  If only they had managed their online presence proactively, they could be continuing to do roaring business.

With a unique, highly rich SEO keyword such as lion meat, they could have easily doubled or tripled their revenues, and created a tremendous online presence for the Serbian Crown – if done proactively.

TAKEAWAY: Good online presence is OPTIONAL for growing your business.  But it is NECESSARY to prevent your offline business from declining.
