The top marketing companies in UK are flush with cash and looking to expand their market share in the wake of a shaky economy. Companies like Aptiviti, Vivendi, Omega Advisors and Unilever have all filed for bankruptcy in the last few years as they struggle with debt repayments and rising costs. While the market may appear to be shrinking, there is still plenty of opportunity to capitalize on a down market. Here are some ideas from the finance sector on how you can increase your profits in 2021.
If you look at the stock markets around the world you will see that many companies have raised very little capital and appear to be doing well in 2021. This is despite the fact that many of these companies have large expenses for their ventures in India. However, there are a number of Indian conglomerates who have decided to expand in the UK, thanks to the weakening economy. One of the biggest movers is Hindustan Shipyard, which has invested more than $1 billion into its UK operations to expand its shipbreaking business in India.
There are a number of shifts taking place within the IT industry and one that has had the most profound effect is the increasing interest shown by Indian professionals to start an IT business in the UK. The benefits of starting a business in Britain is that you can work with other Indians or Europeans and there is a strong network of Indian entrepreneurs in the UK. The biggest attraction for Indians is that the cost of living in the UK is much lower than that of India, which is another reason why they are opting to return to Britain.
The UK is the home of Microsoft, who has recently acquired a huge stake of a British company, offering the best free software to run on Windows 7. Many prominent UK businesses’ own computers based on Windows 7 and there is a strong market for such PCs. The move by Microsoft further shows the growing popularity of Windows and its apps. It is estimated that within a year, half of all UK organizations will be using Windows.
If you look at the data available, it is evident that the key drivers of consumer behaviour have shifted over the past five years. For example, it is now much easier for an online shopper to choose an online store based on price and ease of navigation versus a smaller store or a physical location. Similarly, if an organization is looking to buy a large variety of goods then they would prefer to purchase these goods from a large retailer in the UK rather than from the internet or a brick and mortar store. Similarly, it is easier for an organization to obtain large volumes of products in bulk than it is to purchase them in small quantities at a low cost. All of these factors are supporting the view that the UK consumer behaviour is shifting towards buying items online.
The question many people in the UK are asking is whether there will be any major shift towards mobile and digital devices in the next twelve months to three years? In this article, I will identify why I believe there will be a shift towards mobile devices and why I believe this will happen in six months to a year. The first category of devices that will become accessible to the UK consumers will be smart phones and tablets of some shape or form. These devices will enable the consumer to access the internet on the go. In this scenario, consumers will be able to access videos, music, photos and other content that they previously had to physically search through a computer. I believe this will happen between twelve months to three years from today.
