Shapiro states, “When a purchase is on the horizon, consumers subconsciously balance four key factors — trust, convenience, price and fun (TCPF) — to decide where to go. Some people will pay more to buy something that’s convenient; others will buy from a less-than-reputable source if it means getting a good deal. It also varies with the person’s current mindset.” (http://aaronshapiro.com/blog/retailers-mobile-serving-users/)Primary Focus:

Let’s examine the above example given to us by the above Alan Shapiro. He stated that “retailers like Apple and Wet Seal maximize the in store shopping experience by letting shoppers play with iPads and use kiosks to create outfits, the best digital marketing initiatives maximize the shopping experience online and on the phone. Pizza Hut’s original iPhone application incorporated fun into the shopping experience, letting users shake their device to add sauce to their order of wings. After being on the market for a year, it had been downloaded about 2 million times and had already generated $7 million in sales.”Responding to an Issue/Opportunity

HUGE was the fastest-growing digital agency in the United States with a growth explosion between 2005 and 2010 from $3 million in revenue to $45 million.

Threats

Complex and fluid nature of the relationships with their competitors and complementors

Currently two main competitors –Digitas and Razorfish

The fastest growing group of consumers in the healthcare market are 60 years old and over.

Funding by customers (healthcare systems, pharma) could be potentially restrictive with new regulations on payment from Insurance payors.

Most healthcare systems currently have some software/digital technology and the need to be able to provide interfaces with digital technology and current systems will be huge.
