What’s a very revealing thing about you? What you buy. Today’s Times shares that businesses are looking to Amazon over Facebook to target customers. Advertisers (aka sellers of goods) are targeting customers that bought X in order to get them to buy Y.

“Tiny Ripples, Big Effect!”
Thank you for supporting indie businesses. Your support is a driver to their success!

Notably, many indie Bridge stores have great websites. They’re: small stores with big websites. A shopper is getting all of the selection and value as when she/he shops at a big store.

We don’t believe shopping small should mean making small compromises. Shopping small means thinking bigger about small shops.

Amazon may start a bank—and become a competitor to JP Morgan. Imagine if Macy’s or Walmart owned a bank. When a customer makes a large purchase, would that make them more appealing than your business? Financing an engagement ring?

Amazon already offers third-party backed credit cards (Chase), cash cards, and a digital wallet, and it’s exploring adding financial integration with its Alexa platform.

Wired’s Zeynep Tufekci argues that tech platforms (social media) will likely grow up much like the automobile industry did.

Ps- At first, I thought this was an illustration of a unicorn with a black eye. Ha ha. That would’ve been fitting, too!

The retail future is increasingly about showing real-time stock online and encouraging customers to order it for delivery or pick it up. When Amazon gives faster delivery to more customers, those are often the same customers as those of indie stores. With these moves, Amazon is just eating more business’ customers.

Before Amazon, there was Sears with 350,000 employees reports today’s Times. A key difference between the two is that Sears provided quality benefits and wages to employees, Sears paid more per sale in taxes (aka helped local schools more), and Sears’ reach was largely limited to its immediate stores’ locations. Since there was no the Internet, the Sears catalog’s impact was limited.
