It gives businesses knowledge and information on the shopping habits and trends which can help them market their products more effectively which can increase sales resulting in more profits.
While many manufacturers rely on third party retailers to sell their products, it has become important for manufacturers to add a direct-to-consumer mix in their distribution supply chain strategy (Diorio, 2016). As a result, Dyson should sell the new product directly to consumers through its website. In addition, by selling the new vacuum directly to consumers at its existing brick-and-mortal stores Dyson will have the opportunity to demonstrate the technology in person and provide a world-class customer experience (Cuthbertson, 2016).

Based on the case study report, there are external threats in Harley-Davidson’s external environment. These are: the threat of entry, legal factors and political factors. The threat of entry is the determination of how easy it is for Harley-Davidson to enter the industry; and in this case this is fairly low. Economies of scale are crucial for the industry of automation. In the event Harley-Davidson had already established themselves in the industry and established channels for distribution, it would be now easier to carry out operations in production on a large scale.
Ad-Lider Embalagen is one of Brazil's largest manufacturers of plastic bags and packaging. However, the company's executives believe their long-term profitability is dependent on the launch of a new product, Fecha Fecil(Easy Close).

Simply put, Nike’s target market is mainly customers who have more concern for the quality and utility of the product than they have for the price at which the product is being sold. This helps to ensure that pricing never has to be adjusted downwards in attempts to woo in a larger number of customers.
