If you’re a business leader feeling nervous about Amazon’s impact on your industry, join the club.
And it’s not an elitist club exclusively reserved for retail giants like Target, Walmart, or Macy’s. Amazon’s reach is affecting small and medium-sized businesses representing a variety of industries including consumable materials, grocery delivery, and even pharmaceuticals.
But fear not! We’re here to breakdown how Amazon can actually help your business.
Navigating the Shifting Marketplace
It’s no secret that e-commerce has become king. As consumers purchase more products using their smartphones, retailers are scrambling to meet the demand. Retailers other than Amazon, that is. With over 100 million people subscribing to Amazon Prime, ordering a product online and expecting it on your porch within a day or two is now status quo.
In fact, a recent study reports that a staggering 74 percent of consumers make Amazon their first stop when they’re ready to purchase something. Between skyrocketing consumer loyalty and the ever-grappling tentacles of the giant that is Amazon, the marketplace has changed for good and it’s time for other businesses to catch up.
It’s important to note that while Amazon has certainly changed the marketplace, it hasn’t killed small or medium businesses. In fact, Amazon’s impact might give companies the push they need to transition their business models from stand alone brick and mortars to thriving e-commerce operations. This can be a huge undertaking, and the challenge of adjusting operations to account for shipping costs, taxes, and maintaining an online presence is enough to make many business owners throw in the towel.
