A HOLISTIC AMAZON STRATEGY IS VITAL
Amazon scares retail brands. We know this as our research shows that 60% of you are worried about Amazon dominating the shopping landscape; with good reason too - 51% of consumers start their product searches on Amazon. And they're buying on Amazon, too.
Yet, this eCommerce giant can bring rich rewards for brands who seek to work with it. In fact, instead of thinking in terms of competing or collaborating with Amazon, the best strategy for many brands is to do both.
make amazon part of a balanced channel approach
Amazon doesn't have a monopoly on eCommerce - yet. Even in USA, half of all online retail takes place on other channels. That's a $200bn market. Elsewhere, non-Amazon online retail is still the majority. For this reason, we don't advocate an Amazon-only approach to eCommerce.
Instead, we work with clients to establish a balanced channel strategy online - across marketplaces, retailer/distributor sites and their own branded site. That means being on Amazon and making full use of other channels, collaborating and competing. That means you can be everywhere the customer is buying, managing your channel mix and maintaining control.
With many of the team having worked inside Amazon and other marketplaces, we bring unique expertise that helps brands increase their results on Amazon. We operate one of the largest consultancies with over 400 brands, 2 million SKUs and $2bn in sales and counting.
