Amazon Prime Is Money SMBs Can STEAL - via @Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Amazon Prime is brilliant online tribal or "club" marketing with great "stealable" lessons for small to medium sized online retailers (SMBs) such as:


* Importance of "movement" marketing. 

* Create CLUBS.

* Empower advocates. 

* Ask for help.

* Be social, mobile and unique. 

Lots of book recommendations and a riff on Rafi Mohammed's "Logic Behind Amazon Prime" shares online marketing tips for SMBs.l

Top 10 Reasons Amazon Kicks Ecommerce Butt In 2014 & What To STEAL - ScentTrail Marketing

Top 10 Reasons Amazon Kicks Ecommerce Butt In 2014 & What To STEAL - ScentTrail Marketing | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Top 5 Reasons Today (5 more tomorrow)
This post got so good to me I had to break it into two. The top 5 reasons Amazon will be kicking ecommerce butt and taking names next year:

* Content Curation (they are better at riffing, snipping and spinning content than anyone). 
* Understand INFORMATION = more than half the "profit" of an online transaction. 
* Price Arbitrage (no prices is ever static on Amazon). 
* Arbitrage Everything (Amazon will trade anything and everything). 
* Amazon Thinks in web "scale" and that is BIG and BIGGER, Fast and FASTER. 

Don't despair. Yes Amazon will be kicking all of our butts for quite a long time online, but that doesn't mean we can't grab bull by horns and narrow the gap in 2014. Knowing what Amazon is so good at is a great place to figure what you can STEAL. 

Doesn't cost much to CHANGE your thinking and may win the day!
