Google's plan to eat Amazon's lunch and dominate retailing | GigaOM Tech News

Google's plan to eat Amazon's lunch and dominate retailing | GigaOM Tech News | Azon Elite Insiders | Scoop.it

Marc Andresseen, the kingmaker of Silicon Valley,  is fond of pointing out that “software is eating the world.” Google’s recent purchase of Channel Intelligence, a data management platform for retailer inventory, underscores its unstated, Borg-like goal of slowly gobbling up every industry it encounters.

 

This particular move, though, is a not-so-subtle signal to the marketplace that Google intends to become the dominant player in global ecommerce – which in the U.S. alone is already a $186 billion goldmine. Yes, for Google this is not just about going deeper into the ads business. The ever-expanding behemoth’s intention is to take a bite out of retailers margins too, starting first with those generated by ecommerce websites.

 

The Channel Intelligence purchase adds to the buzz that Google created back in October when it shifted its Google Shopping property to a fully paid ad marketplace, which by many accounts generated some $1 billion in the fourth quarter. And a Conductor study says that Google already influences over a quarter of all e-commerce transactions through its little search engine. These recent moves indicate that it seeks not only to go toe-to-toe with Amazon, but also to sneak up on other retail giants that sell both online and in stores.

AzonEliteInsiders's insight:

Amazon is a trusted brand, but we should never underestimate the competitoon.  Because that's when they steal the night's march on you and you find your entire army slaughtered come the dawn.

 

Keeping an eye on Google's Affiliate Network and even integrating some products when it's called for will help to enhance your 'authority presence.'

 

Yes, the Google Advertiser program is a royal pain in the you know what, in that it's run more like a CPA network where you have to apply to promote each and every product, so I wouldn't make this a 'focus,' but do sign up, and do have the emails about new products forwarded to your email and/or smartphone (via www.iftt.com if you must) so you can add some products when the situation warrants it.

Wal-Mart May Crowdsource Delivery of Online Purchases - Technorati

Wal-Mart May Crowdsource Delivery of Online Purchases
Technorati
In addition to Wal-Mart, these drivers could be incentivized to transport products for other major retailers and Internet shopping sites such as Amazon, eBay, Target and Sears.
AzonEliteInsiders's insight:

This is definitely worth including in the Azon Insiders Monthly Report for the simple fact that sometimes, when  you factor in things like shipping costs, it's cheaper to refer your visitors to a local store like Wal Mart. 

 

Walt Mart does have an affiliate program, though it's nigh on impossible to create any kind of 'automation tools' for utilizing their affiliate program due to the fact that they will not allow develolpers access to their api. 

 

However, with other resources like "Task Rabbit.com" and a good geo location script or plugin, it's quite possible to build an excellent site for your visitors.

Pre-Oder, not quite an 'Azon Launch Jack,' but much closer than some of the products being 'pimped' as such are.  Products in pre-order status are still hot and do give you an 'edge' over the affiliates who are working off the "Hot New Releases" and "Best Sellers" lists.

Amazon.com adds Texas to its Amazon Wine program
Dallas Morning News (blog)
About 80 U.S.wineries can now ship to Texas customers through the five-month old Amazon Wine program on Amazon.com.
AzonEliteInsiders's insight:

Wine of the Month Clubs often have a 'loyal' customer base, and are about as close to any 'recurring payment' program as Amazon offers.

 

I have continued to search for Amazon products that feature a 'recurring payment' model, but the closest I have found is the "Food of the Month" type products.

 

But with 'wine' having such a loyal base, it makes sense that this particular product would yield a fairly 'reliable' commission income.  Plus, wine is not cheap.

AzonEliteInsiders's insight:

This one was worth including for a nubmer of reasons, starting, again, with the idea that though Amazon is our primary focus, sometimes consumers will also check with other retail outlets like Wal Mart, and other online sources like Ebay...

 

But the next, and far more profitable reason, is because 'Internet' integration for local brick and mortar businesses that sell physical products can be an extremely lucrative business.

 

Just this week, I personally landed a brand new offline client who needs assistance with maintaining his Google Product Ads datafeeds, and who is also gearing up to begin selling his products in the Amazon marketplace as well. 

 

These services are hardly promotoed to offline businesses, yet can make for very profitable contracts.

AzonEliteInsiders's insight:

Content is always a useful investment, IF you are willing to work with it.  You need to rewrite it, add your own intro paragraph and closing paragrah.  Add sub-heads to sections of the article, and change at least one word in each sentence, as well as change the title.  Add pictures and videos.  Give it your own 'voice.'  

 

Just be sure that if you're buying content, it's for a niche you serve or plan to serve.

 

Done for you content is also a great way to test out a new niche, by working with the content, as suggested above, and putting it up on a Blogspot blog, and if it's in a niche you have a site in already, addinig a link back to your own site too.
