Axis: "No One Wants To Buy A Camera"

By: John Honovich, Published on Nov 09, 2018

Axis has, in its own description, made a bold declaration:

The industry is changing so rapidly that the following statement might seem bold but it’s true. No one wants to buy a camera.

This statement underscores a number of material problems:

  • The issue with many just wanting to 'buy a camera'
  • The problem with Axis marketing edge analytics
  • The bigger problem with Axis ineffective marketing strategy

Inside this note, we examine them.
