Amazon has had their doors open for eight years. With the 2012 holiday season coming to a close, the online-retailer hit a new record of selling 25 million items per day. If that number does not shock you, the company sold 300 items each second. To reiterate, each second.
ForSee, an analytics company, recently released their annual Holiday E-Retail Satisfaction survey which surveyed 24,000 Americans. Amazon held the high score of 88 out of 100 and competitor Apple fell outside of the top five list in which it possessed in 2011.
Larry Freed stated, “At this point, Amazon has been dominant for so long and has such a history of focusing on the customer, its hard to imagine anyone else coming close. Companies should emulate Amazon’s focus on the customer, which is clearly linked to superior revenues over the years.”
On Black Friday, November 23rd, 2012, Amazon released that 26.5M orders were placed. Furthermore, Amazon’s Kindle Fire line has become the best-selling product, ever. This statistic was released in a press event held by Amazon. It appears that Amazon needs a bit of competition to keep thriving through our wallets.
