Newsletter Issue #11 - Some Quick Facts And Answers from EpochBG


In 2018 So Far Amazon:

  • Now Controls 54% Of Online Sales In The USA For The First Two Months Of This Year.  It beats all other online sellers, big and small, COMBINED.
  • Has 62 Million Visits Per Day Just In The USA.
  • 90 Million Amazon Prime Members With Free Shipping Perks.  This Makes A Lot Of Webstores Uncompetitive.  BTW, Amazon Is Still Collecting “Prime” Fees So Its Still Making Money On Shipping.
  • Still Does Not Require The Customer To Pay Sales Tax On The Majority Of Products.  Depending On What State You Have Presence In That Can Give A Significant Advantage Over Your Webstore.
  • Only 33 Of The Top 162 Brands  (20%) Have More Than One SKU Showing In The Search Results.
  • The Average Number of Customer Reviews Per SKU is 123.  Half Of The Number Of SKUs Did not Achieve 32 Reviews.
  • Absolutely Dominating Some Categories Online.  For Instance, Amazon Controls 91% Of Online Sales For All Skincare Products.
  • Conversion Rate Of 8.3%.  How Does That Rate Compare To Your Webstore?
  • Amazon Is Literally Destroying Major Retailers.  If You’re Not Successful On Amazon It Becomes More And More Difficult To Be Successful Online.
  • The Median Revenue For The Month Of July For Hemp Brands Was $10,000. That Means Half Of The Brands Did Not Achieve That.  And Half The Brands Sold More Than That.
  • The Average Revenue Per Brand Was $27,000 For the Month Of July.  
  • The Top Selling Brand Generated $453,000 In Sales In July. 
  • Most Brands Are Not Effective in Getting Customer Reviews, A Critical Success Factor On Amazon.

Major Reasons Small Businesses (SB) Do Not Perform Well On Amazon:

  • Amazon Sells The SB Product Directly Or The SB Sells Products That Amazon Sells Directly
  • The SB Products Are Not “Prime” Products
  • The SB Is Not Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA)
  • The SB Is Basically An Unknown Brand And Is Not Effectively Marketing Itself Outside Of Amazon.
  • The SB Does Not Win The Buy Box (And Commonly Even Does Not Know What The Buy Box Is)
  • The SB Products Do Not Have A Decent Best Seller Ranking (BSR)
  • The SB Is Not Collecting Customer Reviews
  • The SB Is Not Pricing Its Products Competitively
