Purchasing decisions have more impact today on the success and
survival of small to medium enterprises than ever before. This is
because it’s becoming more and more difficult to be competitive in a price-driven market.
The argument to buy home-grown and support local businesses seems to have lost its worth
when the multinational ‘box-movers’ can offer buyers more stock at a cheaper price. And the
Internet has opened up a whole new world of limitless buying opportunities from overseas. None
of this is news to anyone as it’s now the norm.
My question is; what are you really buying? Do you stop and think about the greater
impact and effect of your purchasing decisions?
This issue spans all the way up the Government ranks and all the way back down to the small-
town, independent local family-owned cleaning contractor.
But here’s my take on it...
For those that don’t know, I’m a cyclist. Before you stereotype and start laughing at the
visual of me riding around with ‘MAMILS’ (middle-aged men in lycra), let me tell you
that cycling gear is not cheap. And if I want the best quality of anything, it’s actually
A lot of the gear I wear or use can be bought online from overseas and it’s cheaper. But
I have a local bike shop that offers me far more than a few dollars off the price – service,
knowledge, advice, maintenance, repairs and parts. So I would rather spend that little bit
extra to support ‘my’ shop because it supports me.
What am I buying? I’m buying service, loyalty and expertise. I’m still receiving the products I
want and need, but I’m getting so much more. To me, that is true value. It’s that simple. And it’s
the same in every industry.
What value are you receiving when you make purchasing decisions for your company?
“Consumers have not been told
ef fectively enough that they have
huge power and that purchasing and
shopping involve a moral choice.”
