With every potential transaction, today’s buyers are inundated with companies vying for their attention. The overcrowded market has made earning and sustaining customer loyalty increasingly difficult for the wholesaler-distributor.
What’s more, Amazon has set the standard for the buying experience. Not only can customers find an exhaustive product selection, but the platform’s intuitive design offers product recommendations, quick-reorder capabilities and fast delivery options. Add in loyalty programs like Amazon Business Prime and it’s easy to see why the giant made up a staggering 43% of online sales worldwide in 2017, according to an estimate by analytics firm Slice Intelligence. The B2B arm of the business, Amazon Business, has indicated it’s prepared to invest in the B2B distribution market with expectations of little to no profit return for 5-10 years. How can you compete with that?
To identify your vision and place in this market, and compete successfully against Amazon, start by asking yourself these three critical questions:
You may not be able to out-Amazon Amazon, but you can fight back through the value of your sales and service capabilities. Are you providing the value and experience your customers need, or are you risking losing their loyalty altogether?
Create an exceptional experience for your customers that will help you compete today and grow your distribution business tomorrow. Learn more about Amazon’s impact on wholesale distribution and the technology solutions you can use to fight back in this free Enavate ebook.
