Trends & Forces

Significant Costs to Get Subscriptions

Despite relatively high levels of spending on sales and marketing, Bazaarvoice has been unable to generate large revenues. This may be due to a number of reasons including relatively intense competition. However, if Bazaarvoice is unable to effectively generate subscriptions off its sales and marketing efforts, it will not be able to achieve large margins. [4]
