The consumer internet of things (CIOT) is a world with seamless shopping. Amazon Alexa, Google Home and others are just the beginning of something that will shape the future of commerce.
New technologies are already changing the world. Companies are improving customer experiences by embedding “intelligence” into internet-connected devices. Both Qualcomm and Intel are now making chips for the CIOT to capitalize on its growth potential.
According to Gartner, Inc., there will b...e 13.5 billion CIOT devices by 2020. Such devices can provide feedback, create offers and self-adjust. It means that marketers can be more creative in how they approach customers, showing them offers exactly when they’re most likely to buy.
Smart devices help companies gather more data about individuals. Predictive software searches through huge datasets to detect buying patterns and correlations between customer types and purchases. This is how the machine learns. It’s more advanced than “people who looked at this item also looked at these items”.
Sooner or later, customers’ buying patterns and personalization will help companies automatically generate special offers, dynamic pricing and custom bundles based on customers’ past purchase behavior.
How well, do you think, artificial intelligence will be able to predict your future purchases?
Candles are no longer used only as a source of light. Today their functions are much broader. Some candles are used as an element of decor — they are never ignited and used to complete the environment. Others spread the pleasant fragrances in the air. The market of candle products is actively developing and complemented by new niches.
It is necessary to choose the direction for your future business — the production of festive candles, goods from ecological and natural materia...ls, flavored products, or beeswax candles — it is all up to your imagination.
Making candles is not difficult. Detailed instructions with illustrations can be found with Google. Moreover, even those who did not previously work on handicrafts will be able to make their own handmade candles.
— Try to stand out from the competitors. Work on the brand and product design. For example, the manufacturer of candles Frostbeard Studio made book lovers its target audience. The names of candle fragrances refer to the names of famous books, heroes, and locations from books.
— Packaging and appearance of products are something that distinguishes you from others. Among thousands of candles, it is difficult to stay unique. Prepare the attractive packaging for your goods. Hire a professional photographer to take photographs of the goods and post it later in the online shop.
— Use materials that do not cause allergies or irritant reactions.
