EVM 3442/4442: SELLING ONLINE F22
This is a sample content policy.
Amazon has become the de facto tool for selling Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) online. If you’re not selling your product on Amazon, chances are that someone else is already doing it for you. Unlike real estate, Amazon squatters may have (and, retain) first-mover advantages in selling products and securing organic listing authority.
Anyone planning to sell products for themselves or for an employer needs to understand the Amazon landscape. Amazon has become a ubiquitous metaverse for commerce. Everything known tangibly in bricks-and-mortar retail has a virtual analogue expected to move faster and cheaper, all while subject to the scrutiny of customer reviews. The Amazon eco-system includes an army of gig workers and service providers such as lawyers and marketing professionals, subject to the same constraints.
Whether you wish to become a third-party seller on Amazon or plan to work for a CPG company, understanding the power of Amazon (and related tools) has universal application. We plan to cover the risks of entering Amazon, the criteria to evaluate successful products, protecting your brand, organic and pay-per click strategies, third-party tools, and the broad market for trading in Amazon businesses.
