Patagonia's "Buy Less" Campaign May Lead to More Revenue - Eric Lowitt

Patagonia has always behaved as a maverick company, and its concern for sustainability has led it to pursue a new initiative: it’s now actively encouraging consumers to buy less of Patagonia’s new apparel.

But this is a waste of time and money for a lot of small businesses and a huge misdirection of focus. There is a better way for most of us. A janitorial supply company wrote a response in another blog promoting all this fancy “branding” (to which this blog is a response): "I think the most important thing you can do to brand your company is to provide superior customer support. Here at we pride ourselves on our customer service. has it figured out. Where do 95% of all our customers come from? For those under 30, 85% of product discussions are face2face and only 7% are online.
