Recently I saw a presentation by Ryan Deiss and he stated this beautifully that web is on decline. More and more people are using the post PC devices and 90% of their activities includes using apps, playing games and reading some popular magazines and books. The huge portion of web in which our websites and information lies are not getting the response as it used to. Emails don't get response as they used to get back in early 2000s.
The small internet businesses are taken over by "wallmarts" of internet like amazon, iBooks, "closed" app stores and restricted features on affordable advertising channels like google adwords.
The transition is started and in 5 years it will be super hard for small businesses to go out and make money over the web, when I say money it means at least $100,000 as it is average in San Jose where I'm living right now.
This image shows the rise of post PC devices.
So it is better that we think from a new paradigm.
how can we make the process of making money in this changed internet market as easy as possible, what are the possible channels and modes of getting leads and doing marketing for least amount of money?
What do you think is going to happen in the next 2 years? Are the big players will take over the 75 to 80% of the market? Are we ready to prepare our small community of IMers for this change?
It should start an intelligent discussions and give a new insight to the beginners who are just starting up.
