  2. Furthermore, the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of retail sales from 2007 to 2012 is expected to be just 2.6%, while the CAGR of online sales is expected to be 14% for the same time period “ Online retail continues to outpace store growth. The reality is that there is a channel shift happening, and consumers are in fact spending dollars online that had previously been spent in stores. While the breadth of selection and 24x7 accessibility of the Web have certainly contributed to some incrementality in overall consumer spend, a portion of overall spend is the dreaded “C” word — cannibalization of store sales. Furthermore, the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of retail sales from 2007 to 2012 is expected to be just 2.6%, while the CAGR of online sales is expected to be 14% for the same time period.”
  3. At Amazon, the vast majority of albums are now available in both Audio CD and MP3 formats. Wider selection is an important criteria for digital consumers.
  4. 60% of Netflix users now use streaming video content
  5. http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2010/jul/20/amazon-ebook-digital-sales-hardbacks-us Amazon.com is now selling more Kindle books than hardcover books. Over the past three months, for every 100 hardcover books Amazon.com has sold, the Company has sold 143 Kindle books. Over the past month, for every 100 hardcover books Amazon.com has sold, the Company has sold 180 Kindle books. This is across Amazon.com's entire U.S. book business and includes sales of hardcover books where there is no Kindle edition. Free Kindle books are excluded and if included would make the number even higher. Amazon sold more than 3x as many Kindle books in the first half of 2010 as in the first half of 2009. The Association of American Publishers' latest data reports that e-book sales grew 163 percent in the month of May and 207 percent year-to-date through May. Kindle book sales in May and year-to-date through May exceeded those growth rates. On July 6, Hachette announced that James Patterson had sold 1.14 million e-books to date. Of those, 867,881 were Kindle books. Five authors--Charlaine Harris, Stieg Larsson, Stephenie Meyer, James Patterson, and Nora Roberts--have each sold more than 500,000 Kindle books.
  6. When customers download free music, we see a 10% lift in subsequent sales and a significant lift in repeat customers.
  7. Sales of music on Amazon bears this out: customers in the CD store drive a double digit percentage of
  8. Sales of music on Amazon bears this out: CD store drives a double digit percentage of sales in the MP3 store as customers cross-shop across formats
  9. In a recent survey, customers valued ‘Price’ and ‘Ease of Use’ as the top two factors when deciding where to purchase their digital music When we examined customers shopping on the MP3 store over a 30day period, users that entered the store through an album deal where much more likely to return as repeat customers than a control group that did not see a deal initially.
  10. Relationships matter Listen, understand, respond Own your readers and their minds Reach out to share news and updates Word of mouth works and Social Media is best channel to do that http://www.slideshare.net/nzl/viral-marketing-with-widgets
