Neat Chart of each USA State’s Largest Private Employer – Care to guess who dominates? Short Video too!

In this interesting chart by our friends at Visual Capitalist, the 1.5 million workers that call Walmart home, show just how large their company’s foot print is as the dominant employer.

If you think about it, this is logical, due to the massive amount of products Walmart moves daily in all sorts of areas of our lives!

What may surprise you (or not) is the massive amount of health care companies that dominate many of the other states – Aging Population = Health Care needs.

Next, the University/Education – happily this is the third most dominant employer, as the future of our country can be dependent on higher education.

Think your buying habits are not being swayed ? Think again! Fun example

Let’s have a little fun !!

You likely will think twice after this exercise as you make buying decisions.

Certainly everyone who is reading this has ordered numerous items on Amazon.

Not shooting at Amazon….. we use them constantly… just a great example for our discussion, so please, no stones!

Is Our Buying Controlled?decision-1448155

Go to your Amazon account and type in “Google Home”

This device is the direct competitor to Amazon Echo.

It is very likely you will get multiple options of the Amazon device, but none of the Google device…

Now just search for Google Home on your regular browser!

Most likely you used Google to search in your browser, very different results.

Clearly the Amazon search is skewed, but to think the Google search is not? Hmmmm

Not creating a problem here, not trying to advance a conspiracy theory …. marketers have correctly been doing this for decades…

It’s just easier make an example as the facts pop right up in our face!

Have a great “Known Swayed” buying day!
