How is the Alibaba marketplace different than the Amazon marketplace?
Short version, for end consumers, there is not a huge difference. People shop products, and there are multiple sellers who will fulfill those products. Longer answer would focus more on the suppliers providing product and supporting them with content. Vetting processes, agreements, reverse logistics, and commission/percentages all play factors into how suppliers/distributors/retailers collaborate to get product up on these marketplace sites.
Why has Amazon grown to be known as the best online marketplace?
- Much like real estate, location location locaton. Amazon is a brand virtually everyone on the planet knows, and as such companies want to feature their products on Amazon.com. For Amazon this results in one of the largest and richest selections of products available.
- End Consumers know how to interact with Amazon. They are continuing to evolve their platform to ensure a user-friendly design [think Alexa], along with intuitive search options and multiple filters to get the end consumer to the right product.
- They also provide end consumers comprehensive review system with star rating, personalized offers and recommendations to consumers, based on their shopping and browsing history and customer loyalty programs with free shipping and other goodies.
Why is it more important than ever to get your products listed on online marketplaces?
I wouldn’t say it is important to get your products listed, as they are already out there. I would say that it is important to work with these marketplaces to ensure your brand’s integrity is maintained across all digital challenges, and be aware of how you as a manufacturer are being viewed by the global consumers. Your products are out there, but how they are being represented might not be how you and your organization envision it.
