Google’s Latest Privacy Invasion, Selling to Local Merchants, and More.
Avid Minutive readers might remember I highlighted Google’s credit-card partnership a few months back. That program has now led to a privacy complaint before a federal agency… though I’m not holding my breath on the federal government regulating one of the biggest lobbiers in Washington.
The good folks at StreetFight have garnered some solid data to back up the market fit for the small business marketing bundle Mike Blumenthal and I have advocated for the past ~year.
Speaking of that bundle, Greg Sterling authored this thoughtful piece about ways to serve the “low end” of the market. It’s my view that market winners will integrate, in Greg’s words, “point solutions providers that can deliver very specific ‘solutions’ at very low cost at low overhead.”
No other way to say it — this is a pretty terrifying milestone in the lifespan of humanity.
