For Sale On Amazon.com: Consulting Services
from the expanding-the-business dept
I’m still surprised that other companies haven’t been able to build an e-commerce platform that matches all the features of Amazon.com. Certainly, there are a few, but Amazon continues to hold a pretty clear lead, which is why they’ve found a fairly successful business hosting complete shops for other big name merchants. Now, Amazon.com is going one step further, and trying to open a professional services division that will consult with companies about e-commerce options. Of course, they may just go in and tell companies to sign up for Amazon’s hosting service, but it should be interesting to see how successful they are building such a services organization. It certainly shows how Amazon is looking to take an area where they are clearly experts, and expand their business opportunities.
