WOMM If it sucks, it sucks.

I read this statement this morning and I’m still trying to wrap my arms around it: “Power is shifting rapidly to consumers”. The reason I’m having a hard time with it is,  since when did or do consumers not have the power.  The person who wrote that also said that that statement is the “new reality”. Oh really? So prior to the new reality, marketers and companies and products called the shots?

Isn’t the customer always right? If a product sucks, it sucks. The customer and the consumer will tell you so. They’ll do it 3 ways. 1 they won’t buy it. 2 they’ll tell their friends about the sucky-ness of it and 3. even though they don’t knoe you, they’ll tell you the product sucks.

I chuckle when I read that companies and organizations are building social communities and word of mouth campaigns wrapped around their products and top influencers and then complain because of what they hear. What did they expect to hear?

If it sucks, it sucks.
