Amazon is cracking. Now, this is not to say I’m rooting for their downfall. Amazon’s model has forced businesses to improve service and consumers everywhere have benefitted. We use Amazon often. Who doesn’t?
But the idea that they’re going to rule the world, well, hold that thought. Amazon is going to have to raise their prices. And if so, that’s going to negate the primary reason why most of us buy from them.
e-commerce sites have started to adapt. Most sites offer free 2nd day shipping now. The notion that I have to have something right now, part 2 of Amazon’s pitch, well, for us that’s just not true. I can wait 2 days for anything I order.
Anyway, here’s a great insider view on what’s going on at Amazon. Amazon.com is not going to be a monopoly. In fact if they don’t start figuring out how to make a profit, they’re going to be an also ran.
