Branding Is Dead

Branding Is Dead

If you are an Amazon seller, you know it boils down to customer experience and how they share their experience via reviews.  This means an even playing field for small brand owners competing against big household brands in the Amazon platform.  One example is, Famous Household Brand A sells a well known product for $50.  It’s parent company has more than 50 years in existence and that they are really well known to consumers, has huge number of 5 star reviews on Amazon and has been selling for the longest time.  Another not-so-famous-brand company offers the almost exact product with a huge number verified 5 star reviews on Amazon but it costs only $35.  More than likely, to some consumers, the $35 product is a better option.  Why? Because it has a low price, same amount and level of reviews in Amazon… it is a no brainer.

Branding is Dead

At least for Amazon, it is.  People don’t search for famous brands anymore in the Amazon platform.  What they look for is a reliable product with great review and excellent customer service.  If you obtain these, then you are one step closer to your goals for your product.
