‘ENVISION’ Step A1 When Planning For Success In A Connected Product World

There was a day when manufacturers built their products, shipped them to retailers, and with the exception of a return or two, considered their job to be done. Those days are coming to an end faster than expectations of personal privacy. With the Internet of Things and connected products, the consumer products landscape has changed forever. Now manufacturers have a direct channel to the consumer that is ‘always on’ and they can provide more services, sell additional products, and create a more satisfying brand-to-consumer relationship than was ever possible before.

The IoT products shoppers are buying for others may not be the same tech products they would like others to buy for them. As we mentioned in our last post, according to a telephone survey of 1,000 US adults conducted by the CTA (Consumer Technology Association), here was the list of smart home devices shoppers they were planning to purchase for others: SMART HOME GIFT LISTS: 17% Smartwatch 15% Fitness tracker 11% Connected toy 10% Smart thermostat 10% VR headset 9%   Heart rate monitor 9%   Drone 8%   Home camera 6%   GPS sports watch 6%   […]
