HELP MEMBERS EARN REVENUE LAUNCH MALL

THE PROBLEM
Amazon's growing dominance in online retail (approaching 50% of all online retail sales in the US) has forced even the largest of traditional retailers to shut down stores and downsize. Small, local, and independent businesses are at a greater risk due to lack of access to technology that can help each to effectively counter the potential threat from Amazon's recent expansion in the grocery, service, and other local markets.
THE SOLUTION
  • Business Communities must each launch their own online shopping alternative to Amazon - a local/regional online shopping marketplace that "automatically" brings together independent websites, goods, services, and promotions from the entire community, in "real-time", to offer shoppers new conveniences and incentives that will make local shopping the preferred and default choice online
  • Independent Businesses must capitalize on their local differentiators and harness the power of their community to compete online in innovative new ways, offering shoppers new conveniences and channels to shop local online.
THE CHALLENGE
  • Infrastructure costs alone for a single community is estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and is beyond the scope of most non-profits such as chambers of commerce. A practical solution must not introduce any additional cost/overhead.
  • Standardization of technology used by independent businesses is the only practical way to unite businesses online and, despite the diversity of available technology, standardization of the technology is a must.
  • Alignment on common strategy is also a must for long-term success, not just at a local/regional level, but also at the state and national level, and is therefore beyond the scope of any one chamber of commerce.
ENSURING SUCCESS
The only true way to overcome the challenges is in a socially responsible and collaborative solution that benefits not just one party, but all involved parties. Rather than introduce new cost and overhead on the business community, the solution must introduce new revenue stream, and rather than dictate additional overhead and cost for businesses to participate, it must help each lower their current and future costs. This is how we can ensure success, and this is where SharedMall comes in!
