|Welcome to Hyde's bustling new £1.3million 'Market' Place|
Have you ever watched a lively 'Market Town' prosper and then watch it slowly starve itself to death?
Have you ever wondered why it’s failed? Or do you know what has gone wrong?
Maybe, like many of Hyde’s residents you even offered constructive feedback to the council and its councillors only to get a nasty look in return.
How is it that we can see the self-destruction - while the council seem to be oblivious
Why? - Because we see it from the perspective of a customer. The council is engulfed in an emotional world of "It's ours - it must be beautiful". Or maybe they keep telling themselves, "There’s now’t wrong w’it Market, we spent a lot of money fixing up this place - people will see it our way - eventually".
So why has Hyde’s market failed?
Well, I suspect that the market’s owners; Tameside council, followed a marketing strategy of hope.
Well, hope is an admirable personal quality councillors, but it’s a lousy marketing strategy.
