Should Small Business Pay Attention to Quantum Marketing?

Quantum Marketing

There’s a lot that small businesses can learn from big-name companies. In fact, adapting a few marketing strategies from successful brands that already sell to your customers is a common low-cost marketing hack.

Domino’s Pizza and FedEx taught us the power of using guaranteed delivery as a positioning strategy. Bombas showed us how to use charitable giving as a way to attract customers who want to do good and make money doing it. Nike showed us how purchasing based on their tagline “Just Do It”  literally increased physical performance. 

In his new book Quantum Marketing: Mastering the New Marketing Mindset for Tomorrow’s Consumers, Raja Rajamannar, CMO of Mastercard lays out a case for a new era of marketing that he claims will change everything.

I received a review copy of Quantum Marketing and couldn’t wait to see what this massive disruption was going to be and how it will impact small businesses.  My goal in reading the book was to come away with insights similar to the ones I described above.  What can we learn from these big brands that will take us into the next phase of getting and keeping customers?

If You’re Overwhelmed by Technology — Just Wait

In Quantum Marketing, Rajamannar claims that marketing is facing an existential crisis.  He says that marketers will need to take on a new mindset. He urges marketers to master new technologies like artificial intelligence, wearables and augmented reality in order to compete for today’s fickle consumers.

As a traditional marketer, especially one who works with small businesses, I found these conclusions somewhat disturbing. 

After all, more than half of business owners surveyed find it challenging to deal with any form for marketing. Not only that, but with the average marketing budget for small businesses hovering around $500 per month with little to no marketing automation or technology investment, I expect most small business owners will simply ignore the trend Rajamannar is writing about.

How VR is Changing Workforce Collaboration for Enterprise and SMB

Workforce Collaboration

COVID-19 forced businesses to learn to collaborate remotely – and quickly. Essentially overnight, offices were shuttered, travel halted, and teams were working from home – in some cases, for the first time. And while many enterprises were more adept, having already adopted tools for remote collaboration, many small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) had to scramble.

One tool that enterprises across a variety of industries have been already leveraging for workforce training and education as well as product design, is virtual reality (VR). Industries including construction and real estate, medical, automotive and aviation, and first and emergency responders have all been incorporating virtual reality into their work. Over the last several years, hotels, office buildings and cars have been designed faster and more cost effectively in VR, workplace and emergency trainings have been administered more efficiently in VR, and medical professionals have been able to sit in, and even participate, in remote surgeries in VR.

When I joined HTC VIVE in 2019, many enterprises were already adopt
