How Amazon Is Monopolizing Commerce & What That Means For Local Businesses

17-10-2017 12:57:50

The Internet, Amazon, and ever-changing digital technology have forever changed the way we shop. With no brick and mortar retail locations, Amazon has managed to become the Walmart of the Internet, blazing over everything in its path, including brick and mortar retailers. While many business owners and consumers place the reason for Amazon’s success on its low prices, there’s far more to the story than that. Amazon has positioned itself to take an orderly methodical approach to consumer purchases. It has everything from name recognition to visual appeal to customer relationship systems to upselling systems to feedback and follow up.

Amazon’s online success has led many of its competitors to join its ranks in an effort to piggyback on its success. Many small businesses, sole proprietorships, and entrepreneurs have tried to compete with Amazon and carve out their own corner of the ecommerce and retail world. Unfortunately, far too many of these companies compete on price, alone. While creating value for your target market is tantamount, that does not – and should not – mean competing solely based on price point. Both product and service based businesses must learn to use systems and online tools to drive local success and revive their struggling enterprises.

The truth is that no business, retail or otherwise, shuts its doors because of a single competitor – not even if that competitor is a behemoth like Amazon. Instead, businesses usually fail because of internal faults and flaws. That’s where Shoppi comes in.
