How to Catch Up to and Compete With Amazon.com [Video]

  |  July 27, 2012   |  Comments

A look at the tools that allow Amazon to be so agile in today's online marketing environment.

This week I conclude the series about big data and what it means for marketers with a seven-minute video. I promised at the end of "E-Commerce Moneyball" that I would show you the tools that Amazon developed internally and leveraged to become the dominant e-commerce market leader. In the video I deconstruct Amazon.com's category (landing page) and product pages to identify the features that online retailers can duplicate with some of the big data tools that have come to the market recently.

These are the tools that allow Amazon to be so agile in today's online marketing environment. They are tools that are mostly data-driven automation and adaptive learning and optimization tools that will allow any retailer to claim their unfair advantage. By the end of this video you will see that some of these tools are must-have tools for your retail arsenal.

(Disclosure: I am an advisor to Bazaarvoice, Monetate, and Runa.)
