Online buying for education: what do professional and personal have in common?

There’s no doubt about it, the way we can find, choose and acquire things has changed forever. Thanks to the internet, our buying horizons have extended from local to global and now, perhaps more than ever, we can even experience and understand what ‘the paradox of choice’ really means.

So, does this brave new world of purchase power affect us equally in both our personal and professional lives? When we’re ordering that weekly supermarket shop with a guaranteed delivery window, do we think or behave differently from the way we might if we were making a professional buying decision for something like a classroom computer or printer?

Surely ‘cost, added value, convenience and trust’ influence our personal and professional purchasing decisions, especially online.

Alongside the mind-boggling choices offered by online vendors, there’s also an entire industry dedicated to comparing what’s on offer. And if there’s any room for doubt that we’re making the right choice, we can scroll through ‘real reviews by real people’ only to reach the conclusion that you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people, all of the time.
