What do you know about Amazon? I used to think they were simply a retailer, but I was wrong. Amazon is much bigger than that, it involves a much broader range of services. Do you know what Amazon Fresh is? It’s a delivery service of almost everything you want to buy from fresh products, meat, and seafood to diapers, DVDs, and toys – currently in the States. Do you know what Amazon Instant Video is? It’s a place where you can watch over 90,000 movies and TV shows online. I bet you didn’t know about Amazon Cloud Player that lets you play your music from the cloud on any Android device, PC, or Mac.
Amazon has built an eco-system that cements its place in the world of digital and physical goods. I believe their business model is to become a one-stop shop and the only place for people to buy and consume anything online and offline on multiple touch points. In this article, I will outline some of the future opportunities that either correlate with market trends or provide potential opportunities and commercial benefit for Amazon.
