Worker confronts M&S chief over 'poverty wages' | Society | The Guardian
Gewinnbeteiligung & workers rep on board of directors!? Like in Germany. Especially in customer facing ops! It's not just about price, its also customer service! customer experience. acquisition (word of mouth, net promoter score - vs - getting foot-fall up through sales and deals) customer engagement. customer retention and empowerment - to make the better choice to shop where people are treated well, paid well, and shared economic interest (environment, ecology, sustainability, local economy and jobs (multiplier effects)). Compelling people to make a mindful and conscious choice, day to day and for the long-term! Differentiate, don't fight with Amazon and big grocery retailers for price, sales, deals. That war you lost already because you can't win that way (bc of them having deeper pockets, shareholders which look away since ever in case of Amazon, and it is their identity; why ppl shop there), new business, away from Amazon, Tesco & ASDA. And especially Lidl and Aldi.

E-Commerce is a Bear — Medium
Only two start-ups have properly challenged Amazon over the past decade: Zappos and Diapers. [...] Having spent time with Tony Hsieh and Alfred Lin, the leadership duo who built Zappos, and Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, the founders of Diapers, I can tell you: these are intense competitors who recognized the best outcome was to join forces with the industry leader. So if Amazon is the low cost winner of selling brands online, if they are acquiring their best competitors, and if their everyday low prices are available to the entire country via a mechanical turk algorithm which is guaranteed to beat you, how do you compete? [...] [ eBay pure p2p marketplace ] [...] This next generation of e-commerce companies is as much about what you exclude as what you include. // &! only up for grabs (Amazon model) is in the developing world & emerging market - for entrepreneurs - & only possible double digit returns for investors. and the battle has already begun ... since like 05/09 China/India ...
