How to Attract Customers On Amazon
“If you’re a shareowner in Amazon, you may want to take a seat, because we’re not thinking small” (Jeff Bezos, Amazon’s CEO).
Amazon is here to stay and has revolutionized the e-commerce market. More than just a retailer, the American multinational company with headquarters in Seattle, also has to offer streaming services, technology develops devices with artificial intelligence, convenience stores (Amazon Go), and its own line of products. Not surprisingly, by January 2020 they already had 150 million prime users and profits of $74.5 billion in the first quarter of the present year.
The pandemic situation of COVID 19 has not represented a threat to the company. While some companies are struggling not to go bankrupt, in March of the present year, Amazon hired 150,000 additional employees in order to meet the rise in market demand.
According to Marketplace Plus, 8.4 million companies around the world are registered as Amazon Sellers, all of them looking to get their products to reach more customers in more countries (rather than just their home country), save on transportation costs, and increase sales in the midst of a global pandemic. This blog is aimed at all those companies that currently registered as Amazon sellers, and that are looking for strategies that will help them increase their sales.
