6 Ways Retailers Can Beat the Amazon Effect

Despite, or because of, its already significant foothold, the e-tail giant continues to usurp market share from its peers, both large and small. The phenomenon has become so widespread that, like a hurricane, it’s been given a name: the Amazon Effect. 

Consumers flock to Amazon because of its popular mobile app, wide product range, low prices, often free and fast shipping (with Prime and Prime Now), and a reasonable return policy. Essentially, it affords shoppers options, convenience, and customer service, and—perhaps most importantly—it delivers on its promises. It’s able to do all of this because of its size, global network of sellers, ample fulfillment infrastructure, and strong brand image.
