As a marketer, I have to give credit where credit is due. The creation of Amazon Prime Day was a brilliant move! With the third Amazon Prime Day now over, it’s clear that Amazon is trying achieve the same status as consumer calendar events like Cyber Monday and Black Friday.
Amazon said last week that their sales event was its “biggest day ever,” with sales this year surpassing its 2016 Black Friday and Cyber Monday results. Their Prime Day generated $1 billion in sales, making it the best sales day ever for the company (Bloomberg 2017).
According to Amazon, “The Prime Day 2017 event grew by more than 60 percent compared to the same 30 hours last year, and sales growth by small businesses and entrepreneurs was even higher” (Businesswire 2017).
Market Domination: The Struggle For Shelf Space
Smart suppliers are going “Prime”and ensuring their products are on the Amazon marketplace shelves and differentiating themselves with in-depth product content.
Amazon’s giant footprint gives suppliers an enormous opportunity to get in front of millions of potential customers they could not hope to find alone. Amazon enables small suppliers to compete with the larger players.
