The Sounds of Prosperity
Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)
We were looking at international (real world) markets recently, specifically those in the automobile industry, and learned that Chery, a Chinese auto manufacturer is struggling with finding a market and distribution model for its vehicles in the US. Upon further examination, we feel we have the perfect solution. One of the models Chery is interested in exporting is the Chery QQ. We think that all they need for success is to target the WoW audience with their QQ car (mages perhaps). As an interesting side note, one of the big obstacles the automaker is facing is accusations from other manufacturers of copying their designs. So, in essence, the QQ is having trouble finding success because of QQ.
Weekend Gold Tip
Most items sell for more in singles than they do in stacks in the auction house. If you’re wondering where to get started in your pursuit of WoWenomic success, consider purchasing items that have no required deposit in the AH in stacks and bleeding them back into the AH in singles. Even if they don’t sell right away you’ll be well on your way to WoW riches with no potential for loss.
