Spare Me Your Sh*tty Advertising - YouTube
"advertising business model doesn't make sense." for publishers! Business insider makes 50cent per user per year. ARPU. OUCH! It's like worse than brand awareness banner advertising. They recently started long-form reports to buy on vertical/topics like gigaom did. // news is free. analysis isn't (in-depth, maybe personal brand, industry standing (like TechCrunch turned out to be: worked for it many long nights for years. and then it all came crashing down rather quickly because the figure-head overstretched himself and wasn't in it for the long-run to do it as independent business) ... but don't to cottage cheese Wall Street a-like factory). // &! We are on the eve of war of ad blocking/content blocking: The End of Advertising as We Know It -

FED Impact on Tech: Bloomberg West (Full Show 9/18) - YouTube
16:40 - how to consume amazon offerings!? via their platform, silo. closed. drm. // distribution model - for prime - lock-in - convenience - less friction. // "Kids don't care much about quality." // taking share of media consumption. // compelling offering - music, series, streaming, e-commerce, gaming, ... // it's not about entry point to access, lowering the price point of entry for the consumption device and the subscription of amazon prime in aggregate - and lock the consumer in. the aggressive price is an attack strategy (opening up/diversifying the price point) of the distribution model to grow the prime business. //

E-Commerce is a Bear — Medium
Only two start-ups have properly challenged Amazon over the past decade: Zappos and Diapers. [...] Having spent time with Tony Hsieh and Alfred Lin, the leadership duo who built Zappos, and Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, the founders of Diapers, I can tell you: these are intense competitors who recognized the best outcome was to join forces with the industry leader. So if Amazon is the low cost winner of selling brands online, if they are acquiring their best competitors, and if their everyday low prices are available to the entire country via a mechanical turk algorithm which is guaranteed to beat you, how do you compete? [...] [ eBay pure p2p marketplace ] [...] This next generation of e-commerce companies is as much about what you exclude as what you include. // &! only up for grabs (Amazon model) is in the developing world & emerging market - for entrepreneurs - & only possible double digit returns for investors. and the battle has already begun ... since like 05/09 China/India ...

What is Jet com? A summary from IRCE 2015 - YouTube
"we are all about the big basket." << incentive people to fill a basket full. --- Amazon Prime (free shipping and other free perks in Amazon ecosystem) // &! E-commerce Game Changers: How big brands are using From IRCE 2015 - - no warehouse just fulfilment partners + just website. = CAC high to get customer, and get them to return and not go to Amazon or else. tries to avoid item by item price war (can't compete with Amazon). give discount if they buy a lot!? like Costco (limited products offer, highly curated, even own brand items)? Online Only Costco with minimal overhead/ops/fulfilment cost(through partners, outsourced). ... hoping that with scale, economies of scale will show profits. and shying away from the long-tail of product. focusing on everyday consumer products. guys behind it are experienced in e-commerce. they probably roughly know their numbers. its now all about execution and some luck ...  Amazon  Prime  subscription  model  commodity  business  commoditization  Amazon  Google  Shopping  eBay  NewEgg
