Uber inspires new courier service!
It had to happen! This was predictable and is just one more in a tsunami of ‘uberisations’ of business categories (my opinion). A new start-up in the courier industry (People Post) is vying to be a significant disrupter, by delivering superior courier services for SME shipments and deliveries.
Will your category be next or will you be the Uber of your category?
It doesn’t matter how much a business owner, or a whole ‘category’ of business owners (taxis, chauffeurs, couriers etc.) winge and complain about an ‘Uber’ type company taking their market – it’s going to keep happening. We live and do business in a global climate now. After all, retailers have been feeling it for some years with the growth in online buying. Another example is the dramatic decline in spending on traditional TV and radio advertising. Large non-Australian international media businesses that specialise in online marketing are taking the market.
The internet and smart phones have been game changers. As business people, large and small, we have to embrace change and turn it to our advantage.
In John Groups we challenge members to ‘uberise’ their business category. Be first. After all there are no competing businesses in a John Group so members can explore and work on ideas openly and honestly.
Members are challenged and kept accountable for growing their business. Expert speakers and members contribute ideas and work on issues to help everyone.
