Imagination in an Amazon business

In a world of Amazon sellers (and there were 2 million active sellers worldwide in 2019), it can become an echo chamber (as Will Tjernlund says) where everyone just copies everyone. Not only does it get pretty repetitive, it’s not good business sense to use the same models as everyone else. Most of all, you could be overlooking some massive wins inherent in the ecommerce/Amazon situation right now.

Dillon CArter of and Michael knock around some of the more radical ways you could consider moving your business forward – or even forming a completely new kind of business at a higher level.
