Should You Be In the Luxury Business?

Luxury isn't a brand. It’s not even a price point.  It’s a mindset. People buy luxury not because of quality, value, or features, but because of how it makes them feel. It’s about the experience.

Internet and big box purchases are purely transactional, no emotion, just an exchange of money for goods. As technology improves and the barriers are broken down, that transaction becomes easier and easier. Which is why it’s only a matter of time before independent retailers have all but lost the mass market. To succeed, you need to shift focus from “the thing”, to the experience that both you and the eyewear will deliver.

We tend to get caught up in the details, the options, the features, the technology, and the pricing, But, delivering happiness, joy, pleasure and excitement is what a being Rock Star Optician is all about.
