Newspaper & Long Distance
Often we are reluctant to change….the status quo is OK.
However, it was time to change on how our news was delivered and how we make long distance calls. Both overdue.
The News & Observer like many newspapers has seen dramatic declines in subscriptions and advertising. Along with this decline has also been decreases in content and reporting….and an increase in price. The value vs. price comparison no longer exists for the N&O. Time to change….eliminate the newspaper delivery….the internet has become the news provider.
The long distance service is a similar example. Long overdue….there are better ways to obtain long distance telephone….again the internet is also a long distance source as well as local telephone service provider.
Some businesses have longevity in their business model….others don’t. That is why change is necessary….for both seller and buyer.
